Radix Health Michigan
Certified Radix® Practitioner & Personal Life Coach
How I can Help You Discover & Forge Your Own Path?
Radix® BodyworkRADIX is a body-centered holistic approach that works with the body, mind and emotions to achieve healing and to develop the capacity to engage fully with life. “Radix” is the fundamental energy or life force that moves, pulsates and finds form in each of us. Freeing the flow of radix brings aliveness, insight, self awareness, discovery, resolution and acceptance as well as an integrated way to approach life.
There are a variety of methods used within the work to address these themes, including movement, visualization and intentional touch. Yet a trained practitioner can effect change and growth during a verbal interchange when his or her interventions are guided by an understanding of the Radix process in the individual.
As a Life Coach Counselor and Radix Practitioner...
I help to facilitate an integrated approach to emotional health and toward one’s ability to live fully in the world. My goal as a practitioner is to create a supportive environment in which an individual who works with me can explore their emotional needs and overcome barriers that limit their full potential.
I approach every client with an open-minded approach to their wellness, while considering their work life, family traditions, cultural roots, spiritual beliefs, gender and sexual identity. I offer sessions for individuals and group work as well.
Helping You Achieve Life Success
Realize your Full Potential.
Be More Alive.
Radix is a regulatory approach both in theory and practice.
Our primary focus is working with the pulsation of the life force in the body/mind. In a practical sense, Radix practitioners focus on the many subtle ways that clients interrupt this pulsation in feeling, thinking and behavior, either by becoming more rigid or by going into chaos. In particular Radix practitioners are skilled in emotional regulation; they understand the long range health benefits of facilitating either
emotional expression or containment.

resistence to change and/or to take necessary risks.
Who is Radix For?
Why a Somatic approach?
The effects of receiving somatic bodywork can aid individuals in coping with and managing anxiety and depression. When emotions are left unresolved over long periods of time, or when they result from a particularly stressful or traumatic event, they can become causes of illness. Unresolved emotions can also result from an imbalanced flow of energy, as well as lead to an ongoing imbalance.
Whats the Benefit of Regular Radix Work?
Research has repeatedly shown significant decreases in levels of anxiety and depression in individuals receiving regular bodywork. In these studies, decreased levels of anxiety and depression persisted for weeks following the sessions.

Why Do We Emphasis Vision Work in Radix?
Radix: An Educational Approach to Health and WellbeingRadix was developed in the early 1970’s by Dr. Charles Kelley, Ph.D, who believed that the most empowering change model is an educational one where the therapist/practitioner is a resource person facilitating the growth and healing of the client. This philosophy still underpins the Radix training program and the practice of Radix. http://radix.org

WORKING WITH TRAUMA: “When you’re traumatized you’re afraid of what you’re feeling, because your feeling is always terror, or fear or helplessness. Body-based techniques help you feel what’s happening in your body, and to breathe into it and not run away from it. So you learn to befriend your experience.” – Bessel van der Kolk, MD Clinical psychiatrist and World’s leading trauma expert Author of The Body Keeps the Score
INCREASED AWARENESS: “If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.”
