What Clients are Saying About Bodymind Repatterning™

"Once deadened from the outside in, I became alive from the inside out. How do you thank someone for giving you back your life?"

- MF, Nurse

"When Alison guides me to ‘focus within’, talking to me in her calm, soothing voice, she leads me into visual imagery that expresses what my body and soul are feeling. Connections are made and healing occurs in a way that is more direct and much faster than the slow movement toward change that I've experienced in talk therapy.”

-LK

"I've had so much body-centered work in my life, and mind and soul therapies as well: none come close to matching what Alison does for me. She has been able to help me identify and release tensions and traumas in my body – both new and old.  Her perspective that traumas are “kept” in the body that result from my body's dance with cancer and treatment, and those that I have had for longer times – many since childhood – has been pivotal in my recovery process." 

- BJ- Performer, Teacher

"Alison’s multifaceted approach has been both illuminating and extraordinarily supportive. It can be easy to just talk without really changing our realities, yet when you work with Alison who is so committed to your growth, each session becomes transformative. Alison possesses a rare level of skill, integrity and compassion yet is down to earth (and funny). You could not find a more capable, kind, and qualified person to work with."

"Allison’s Workshop was fascinating. I came away with a more clear and grounded perspective on the mind-body connection and was able to start using the exercises with patients after the first session, with real results. Her ideas are Innovative and teaching style is fun and creative I wish all Healthcare Providers have this perspective about illness!

 

"The Embodied Nursing program helped me so much in my nursing practice, with skills that I use with myself and can teach to my clients. I feel like I’m able to be so much more centered and grounded and don’t get so affected by the stress I am under constantly. This program goes way beyond the usual stress management programs and taught me how to avoid becoming stressed out in the first place! My Nursing team has loved what I have taught them of the techniques. Our whole unit is calmer and lighter!"

"My nurse incorporated Bodymind Repatterning™ in the hospital with me after my mastectomy surgery. She helped me come back into my body and feel more grounded, clear and in less pain. Learning the breath, tension, center exercise help me a great deal in the days after my surgery and beyond."

"Alison Shaw is the most phenomenal therapist/healer, utilizing her extensive training in both mainstream and alternative therapies to assist the individual in creating a happier, more balanced, life.

Her multifaceted approach has been both illuminating and extraordinarily supportive. It can be easy to just talk without really changing our own realities, yet when you work with someone who is very committed to your growth, each session becomes transformative.

"Let Alison be your guide to healthy body mind connections.

Alison invites nurses to release the old way of caring for everyone else first and replace it with compassion for themselves, with her unique blend of integrative health modalities and counselling. She is well-versed in how to access the various connections between mind and body to facilitate healing on all levels. With a compassionate yet direct style of teaching, much wisdom, she has been a huge help in my own healing journey."

-Gale Lyman, RN, BSN, HNB-BC

"When Alison leads me in a guided awareness exercise, her calm, soothing voice takes me into visual imagery that expresses what my body and soul are feeling.  Connections are made and healing occurs more directly and much faster than in any talk therapy I’ve ever experienced. She is filled with insights and metaphors that have supported and guided my healing journey.  She taught me to face my fear of cancer by moving through the fear, instead of being gripped by it. When my feelings are too much to face on my own, Alison helps me untangle them.  Even when I’m not in her presence, Alison is with me every day."

"Alison has been an amazing resource to me both personally and professionally. Her body-mind concepts have been very effective in enhancing my well-being. She has taught me methods to allow myself to observe and identify what is going on in my body. We all have the innate ability to recognize what aspects of the body, the mind and the spirit need adjusting. She has shown me the way!"
