About

Tina Bartsch

I am a trauma informed bodyworker. I work with developmental trauma (prenatal and birth trauma through childhood), and shock trauma, like accidents, abuse, or witnessing horrific events, for example. Quite often unresolved trauma shows up in our bodies as chronic aches and pains, or can present itself as syndromal, such as, chronic fatigue, insomia, heart issues, or irritable bowel syndrome, to name a few. Research is now showing that by working directly with the physiology of the body, syndromal or chronic symptoms can often be lessened to manageable levels and improve one's quality of life. Call me for a free consultation today to see if this type of work is a good fit for you. I do not take insurance but I have a sliding scale.
