I am so grateful I found you. Not only you really know what you are
doing, technically speaking, but you also bring all of yourself to our
sessions - your attention, focus and love. And I believe this is priceless. -From Byron

It is with profound gratitude that I highly recommend Saskia to you. I have
experienced deep healing as a result of my work with Saskia. Her respectful
and compassionate presence in combination with her high intuition,
unparalled massage skills, and somatic experiencing knowledge and approach
have enabled me to do this healing in a most effective way. Thank you
Saskia. -Love, Debra

My work with Saskia over the past couple of years has been
transformative. Through her gentle guidance and attentive listening,
Saskia has helped me move through painful traumas helping me to
transform my experiences into resources that enrich my life.

You cannot imagine how delighted I am. How wonderful this is. I no
longer need to go to the chiropractor or massage therapist as I used
to just to survive. I no longer flinch every time someone comes out
past the stop sign on a side street to my right.
I recently managed to make a road trip (8 hours of driving a day) to
Northern BC and Alberta and back. I did all the driving. I slept in
different beds, and even tented without pain or discomfort. I also
recently flew away for a conference. The flight, carrying heavy bags,
sitting in uncomfortable seats has caused me no difficulty.
I can take up my life again and live it instead of dreaming about it
while trapped in my bed. I now have the energy to clean my home,
care for myself and enjoy my life. My life has turned around.
Instead of feeling depressed, isolated and in pain I am now positive,
grateful and thrilled with the therapy. -Dagni
A few years ago I was recommended through friends to Saskia with whom I have
worked both personally and professionally ever since. As a clinical
counsellor in the Employee Assistance field, I work with a high functioning
population who are primarily geared to conventional 'talk therapy'. Because
we are limited to short-term counselling and for other reasons, there are
clients whom this model cannot effectively serve. When I see a client who is
in trauma; I consider Saskia as a potential resource for professional
consultation and/or referral.
I know Saskia as a skilled and sensitive practitioner. Personally, I have
found her exceptional in her ability to be present, creative and focused in
assisting the client to gain insight in both the intellectual and emotional
realms. When the client 'gets it' intellectually and is able to connect
emotionally to the work, the understanding gained can then take hold and can
be of enormous value to the client. In her practice, Saskia is able to
provide the client with this level of experience; the safe harbour in which
the client can feel free and confident to do the work necessary to attain
the growth and insight possible through the therapeutic process. It is a
privilege to know Saskia and to work with her.

What I love about what you teach is that it is what my body has been trying
tell me all along - certainly, since I left school (remember how, from grade
one, every impressionable child had to "sit still; don't fidget"; how,
obediently, you found ways to divorce your head from your bodily impulses?)
, and finally began once again to hear my own inner self. As I say: I know
there's a place for all the "forms" and disciplines - of Yoga, Tai Chi, even
Gym - and that they can take a healthy body on a truly rewarding journey;
but it's so refreshing to have a still small voice reinforcing my hunch that
the body actually knows from the inside what it needs to get healthy; that,
when you answer its demands, it will begin to do for itself what no doctor -
perhaps no guru - can so effectively do from the outside.
The medicine you teach is quite the best medicine. It's what dancers have
always understood. And thank God there's someone - in this western world of
chiropractic and orthopaedics and professional-men-in-white-coats - who
acknowledges that sometimes the patient knows best.
I'm very proud to have met you.
All the best. -Eric
