Can ​you understand my health condition? 

  By touching other people’s pain and exploring his own with curiosity, Benjamin has learned to trust the wisdom of the body and each person’s drive for discovery and understanding.  But what is the meaning of all this stress and tension that we carry?  Even as our minds work to learn from past experience, your body works to retrace its steps, though trauma and ecstasy, to form a sense of continuity in your life’s events. And just as we all seek spiritual meaning in disaster and tragedy, your body will inherently evolve to create greater wholeness.


Will the benefits of therapy last?
  Once your treatments give you a boost, it is crucial that you learn to support the ‘New You’. While it’s easy to slip into the old habits that lead back into degeneration, it is also simple to build momentum in your daily life to maintain and build on your progress.
  Benjamin makes use of both your active and passive methods of learning. He helps you to activate your internal healing mechanisms and reminds your body that it knows how to heal itself. You will learn about simple lifestyle adjustments that can create positive change for you.  Practices of physical exercise, diet and spiritual / emotional presence are among the tools that are most effective for accelerating your health benefits.
