Healing Bodywork

What is It ?

Movement Medicine for Embodiment & Healing.

Harmonic Resonance Bodywork is a gentle healing modality that uses harmonic rocking of the body in tune with the body’s own resonant or natural frequencies. It triggers a deep, sometimes ecstatic relaxation  state that speeds healing. Many say it goes deeper than most massage. It’s received dressed in yoga clothes.

The bodywork offers loving touch that is especially effective for recovering from abuse trauma where loving touch can heal the injury caused by unloving touch. 

Based on the work of Dr. Milton Trager MD combined with Sufi healing and Chakra energy balancing. 

It’s effects go deep emotionally while the client remains fully clothed.

Harmonic Resonance is very effective for speeding recovery from physical trauma and injury. It often restores balanced walking after surgery. Back injury pain can often be alleviated. 

Self help exercises are offered to clients to help with both emotional and physical recovery.

Harmonic Resonance healing is “movement medicine”, a heart centered, pain free therapy.  It is a blend of the gentle rocking movement therapy of Dr. Milton Trager, Massage, Sufi Healing methods and Chakra balancing.

It’s a wholistic bodywork, invented in Victoria since 2000. You are fully clothed in flexible clothing such as yoga clothes or soft pants and top. An optional massage blended version is available too.

Victoria BC Client Reviews

Jennifer Hodi-Cannon

What a gift this last session was with Ian of Harmonic Resonance Bodywork. I came to the session feeling stressed and lacking power and vitality and by the end of the session I felt alive again. I left empowered and knowing that I could handle the challenges I was facing in life.

Ian has such a gentle presence that my body calms when I am near him. The movement of his bodywork, enabled my body to reset itself with ease. With Ian’s help, I was able to release energy that I was in my heart field and unplug my sacral chakra.

This session was the reset that I needed for my mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being.

Thank you Ian!

Ian’s technique of combining Trager work ‘rocking’ with massage has been deeply relaxing, and induces a rejuvenating euphoria that leaves me feeling centered and in touch with my authentic self. Thanks Ian, for your loving care and respectful attention!

I see Ian regularly for Harmonic Resonance Bodywork sessions. They are soothing, relaxing, aligning & Rejuvenating. I like being fully clothed while receiving the treatment & the heated table is nice!

Ian’s work is always respectful, gentle and satisfying. I will always go back!
