About Me

Dodie Corcoran offers MULTI-DIMENSIONAL BODYWORK: TOUCHING BODY, MIND, SOUL AND SPIRIT - integrating CranioSacral Therapy, SomatoEmotional Release, Sacred Spaces Bodywork, and Ancestral Connections Work.

I love and respect each of these gentle, effective forms of assistance, and I am delighted to facilitate these processes for others.

Are you in distress?
Are you exhausted?
Have you tried everything and nothing has really made a difference?
Do you experience chronic anxiety?
Is your body heavy with grief or burdened with guilt?
Are your relationships laced with disrespect?

There is nothing a child won't do to help the family, even to the detriment of self
...Bert Hellinger, developer of Family Constellations

The process requires courage, commitment and the desire to make a better life for yourself.

offers stress management through:

CranioSacral Therapy
CST works with the central nervous system. Insomnia, chronic pain and tension are relieved by this gentle, non-invasive therapy.

SomatoEmotional Release
CST is combined with Therapeutic Imagery and Dialogue to release emotional components of physical pain.

Sacred Spaces Bodywork
Sacred Spaces Bodywork is a gentle, respectful way to honor the self-healing mechanisms of body, mind, and spirit.

Ancestral Connections Work
Out of a loving need to help our parents and ancestors, we unknowingly carry their burdens. As secret/hidden family dynamics are revealed, this gentle process helps us to reconnect to Love that naturally and freely is passed down to us.

Zero Balancing
This precise touch therapy allows body fluids to move more efficiently by balancing body energy with body structure.

Body positioning and vocalization are used to evoke and release deeply held tensions. This empowering therapy is followed by gentle bodywork.
