Maori-Style Somatic Therapy and Deep-Tissue Body Work
The Maori-style of somatic therapy takes a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to healing the body and stored trauma. Rooted in the ancient modality developed by the Maori people indigenous to New Zealand, this unique and deeply moving approach views pain and disease as an expression of stored trauma and emotion in the body. To clear these energies, Maori-trained bodyworkers tune into an intuitive connection with each client and his/her body to then support the release of those stored traumas and emotions at a musculo-cellular level. Dr. Turk works with clients in both this style of somatic therapy and a more traditional style of deep tissue bodywork.

(n.) a style of bodywork rooted in the ancient, indigenous practice created by the Maori Healers of New Zealand.
The foundation of the Maori Method is a belief that trauma, physical, mental, and emotional is stored in our bodies at a cellular and neurological level. This cathartic form of somatic therapy helps people heal and express the feelings stuck deep within them, while simultaneously healing their physical body. Through a combination of intuitive client-practitioner connection and deep tissue massage, clients start to experience transformational releases that can exhibit as tears (sadness or grief leaving the body), yelling (anger, fear), uncontrollable laughter (joy), temporary congestion as inflammation moves, among others. Many clients feel a euphoric, buzzing and calming sensation as the body and mind recalibrate after such releases. The Maori Method, created by Dr. Turk, also integrates Chiropractic adjustments to further relieve pressure on the Central Nervous System, the master control center for every system of the body, and gentle coaching during bodywork sessions to support clients as they release what no longer serves the mind, body and spirit. The third element of Dr. Turk’s Maori Method is one-on-one coaching to guide clients as they process the shifts being made in their lives and as a result of the somatic work.
