My name is Helena Bacellar, and I am a Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist in Arizona. My practice is in Sedona, AZ. I also hold Massage Therapy licenses in Virginia and the District of Columbia.
The deepest intentions of my healing practice are:
To facilitate the release of chronic and acute pain
To help reduce stress and anxiety
To improve clarity of mind
To support the experience of deep relaxation
To assist in the reset of the nervous system
To encourage integration of physical/ emotional/ spiritual issues
To promote overall balance and well-being
The two primary modalities I offer are Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Release:
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy assists the nervous system to come back into balance after disruptions caused by injury, stress, or trauma.
Myofascial Release helps release painful restrictions in fascial tissue due to posture, surgery, muscular-skeletal imbalances, or trauma.
A Myofascial Release session often includes craniosacral work because the craniosacral system is considered to be the deepest layer of the fascial system. Thus, I often combine these two modalities.
As a therapist, I hold space for the intelligence of your body to move towards health. I slow down, listen, and follow your tissue. Sometimes there is more “doing” on my part; other times I simply hold the stillness. There is a consciousness that is deeply felt in this work, and I like to think of it as your all-knowing and completely healthy nature healing what got in the way of health. In this fashion, the most important ingredient I offer you is my presence.
Since I have received the Reiki attunements, Reiki energy is always part of my sessions. Rei and ki are two Japanese words that mean "universal life-force energy." This energy is transferred from a Reiki Master to a student through an attunement or initiation process. Being attuned to Reiki gives one the ability to access this universal life-force energy for the purposes of healing a living organism or situation. Once attuned, the Reiki energy remains with the practitioner for the remainder of his or her life.
