About Somatic Resourcing
Based on our natural ability to explore and tap into internal healing resources with the desire to live more fully in our bodies and our beings, Somatic Resourcing is founded on the principals of Ayurveda, Somato Respiratory Integration, and Craniosacral Therapy.  These holistic modalities provide a rich palette for integrating life's stimuli and experiences into conscious awakening, expanded awareness and ease.

As a practitioner, my role is in facilitating ease for integration and holding space for deep healing with presence and conscious touch, allowing and trusting the body’s inherent intelligence to guide and provide the unfolding of life’s expression.

Compassionate Touch and Comfort Therapy
Comfort Therapy helps alleviate stress, anxiety and pain with gentle touch and self-soothing practices, accessing increased periods of calm and ease during major life transitions.  This work is available for those with agile or fragile nervous systems, from first breath to last, including family members, practitioners and caregivers at residences or care facilities.  

Craniosacral Therapy
Biodynamic Craniosacral work is one of the most comprehensive ways of safely and gently accessing and alleviating an over-stressed nervous system for whole-body integration and ease. It's also one of the most versatile healing systems, used in Somatic Resourcing and wellness care, injury treatment, chronic illness and palliative care.  The demand for this work continues to grow in both holistic and allopathic models of healthcare with profound results.

Shirodhara is an ancient ayurvedic treatment of warm oil gently poured over the forehead in a steady stream.  Soothing and rejuvenating, shirodhara is beneficial for overstimulated nervous systems, helping relieve stress and exhaustion, balance emotions, and calm the mind.  I became passionate about shirodhara while studying Ayurveda and Panchakarma treatments in India 20 years ago with a family of Vaidyas (Ayurvedic doctors).  It remains my favorite modality for it's gentle yet profound results, and I love sharing it with others!

Individual sessions and consultations with are available by appointment.   Residential and facility outcalls, as well as group facilitated training sessions and workshops are available by prior arrangement.  Appointments currently available in the greater Portland and Vancouver areas.  Contact Lisa at (971) 409-9626, or somasource@gmail.com.

I look forward to working with you - 

Warm regards,
