Bodymind Bridge Institute Founder, Shuna Morelli, is a professionally trained teacher, a licensed massage therapist, a registered hypnotherapist with the Washington Department of Health, and hypnotherapy instructor certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists..
Shuna, the lead instructor, has developed the BodyMind Bridge System of Healing in response to the need for a more complete understanding of the vital interplay of mind and emotion with physical healing. She is a dynamic and enthusiastic educator, healer, massage therapist, and coach.
My interest in the mind and its workings led me to work with indigenous shamans in the Peruvian Amazon in c. 2000. My experiences with these incredible healers opened a whole new realm of healing possibilities for me, and I returned home determined to find a way to use some of these ancient healing systems with my massage clients.
As I searched for further training in the field of human consciousness here in the U.S., I found the profession of hypnotherapy.
Over the years, with the help of many of my long-time massage clients, we explored the ingenious way that the relaxed and focused mind (i.e. a mind in alpha awareness) receives images from the deeper bodymind, or creative divine mind. These images can be visual, auditory, tactile etc. and they always bear information for the client that is instrumental in their healing.
Years of research, practice, and paying close attention to results and feedback has led me to create the repeatable, always amazing system of healing I call BodyMind Bridge™.
Recently, I have evolved the BodyMind Bridge™ system into the certification course that I now teach to Health Care Professionals of all types.
I have hundreds of case studies of “hard to heal” clients who come for a BodyMind Bridge™ session and learn a larger perspective about their illness, or chronic pain or harm-producing habits and conditioned behaviors. This larger perspective gets them out of their tightly held identity as “the ill one” and loosens the emotional holding in the body’s tissues. Often, chronic pain that has been undiagnosable, is gone at the end of the session or shortly thereafter.
Because of the profound results of work that includes being present with both the body and its mind, I have been inspired to teach BodyMind Bridge™ to all healers who want to learn it.
I believe it can influence the course of the health care from one of “let me fix you,” to “together, lets acknowledge the emotional/psychological root to your symptom, recognize its gift, and then let the intelligence of the body make you well again.”
I invite you to join me in this adventure!
-All Good Medicine,
At the BodyMind Bridge Institute, we teach a body- centered and spirit-centered form of Generative Hypnotherapy as inspired by the work of Milton Erickson and Stephen Gilligan.
BodyMind Bridge perceives both the conscious mind and the creative unconscious mind as valuable and necessary for symptom relief and deep healing to occur.
A BodyMind Bridge session shows your client how to access and release their own
They do their own inner work!
The BodyMind Bridge Practitioner guides and witnesses the self-healing.
"Generative work is a creative art in which conscious and unconscious minds are woven into a higher consciousness capable of creativity and transformation."
