Welcome to BodyBeing…
I’m Kris Nourse, a Somatic Bodywork Practitioner and holistic spiritual companion. I invite you to come closer to your essential self through touch, healing body practices, deep listening and dialogue to help you identify and understand your body’s cues.
Through inner awareness and attuned support, your body can release tension and pain, and old wounds can heal. You can feel more comfortable in your body, in your life. When you access a present state of being and befriend your nervous system, your perspectives broaden, your heart opens, and you connect more fully with what is most important to you.
Befriending the signals of your body helps you slow down and access more of what is true within you and around you. This is crucial for knowing how to navigate meaningful connections, co-create in healthy ways, and act from your best intentions instead of being carried away in reactivity.
I am a Board Certified Massage Therapist and Rosen Method Practitioner, a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and certified Integral Somatic Psychology Practitioner. As an interfaith spiritual companion, I hold a sacred space for your whole being, help you explore what is wanting to be known, support what emerges, and invite loving resonance and connection.

Important Information you should know:
People new to addiction recovery or who have had recent hospitalization for psychosis may not be good candidates for this work. This work is not appropriate for young children or those in very fragile, unstable states.
BodyBeing bodywork and mind-body learning can be a dynamic adjunct to medical treatment, psychotherapy or spiritual practice. While dialogue and emotional expression may occur during your session, Kris is not a psychologist and should not be considered a substitute for any needed psychotherapeutic, psychiatric or medical diagnosis or treatment.
This work invites you to develop your capacity for living more comfortably with the challenges you face, including uncomfortable aspects of your relationship with yourself. Those who benefit the most from the BodyBeing approach are those who have stability and support in their lives, are willing to come inward toward themselves and take responsibility for their own experience.
If you wonder if BodyBeing work is suitable for you, consult with your health care provider, and talk to Kris.
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
