Eileen Sendrey, CMT
Co-Creator Advanced Modules on Double Bind Practice and Application
Eileen is a Pre-and Peri-Natal Somatic Educator and Practitioner, Registered Craniosacral Therapist (RCST®), Certified Massage Therapist (CMT,) a Castellino School Approved Womb Surround Facilitator and Breema® Instructor and Practitioner.
Eileen works with adults, individually and in groups and families with babies, children and teens to help understand how early traumatic events show up in the present; and how to transform those patterns toward integration and health. Her current work is a culmination of three decades of study and work as a bodyworker, yoga teacher, Breema® instructor and community organizer (with a particular emphasis of working with pregnant couples and babies) before studying and mentoring with Myrna Martin and Ray Castellino.
Eileen’s work is based in the understanding that each individual has an inner guidance system to their own optimal health. People don't need to be “fixed," just supported in connecting with their innate rhythms, impulses and intentions.
