"I believe that when we sense safety, we allow ourselves to feel. When we start feeling, our healing can truly begin. This safety occurs on an energetic level and also on a physical plane. It’s that feeling when walking into an environment, taking in a deep breath, and finally feeling full-body relaxation."

— Brett


Hellerwork is a form of bodywork that combines deep tissue massage, movement education, and dialogue. It is designed to realign the body and release tension and stress that are held in the body's posture.

Hellerwork is used to treat a variety of issues, including chronic pain, stress, and mobility problems. It is also sought out for personal growth and improved wellness, as it encourages a greater awareness of the body and its potential for movement and expression.

Techniques Utilized in the Bodywork Experiences

Somatic Release Technique

(S.R.T), inspired by Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing(TM), is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders.  By experiencing and observing the sensations that are present in your body, your nervous system begins to reconnect memories of the past that you may have disassociated from in order to survive. With guided facilitation and intentional hands-on support, you are able to experience these memories through your physical sensations in a safe container.  This allows the body to naturally process traumatic imprints through a variety of means including but-not limited to: trembling, yawning, crying, shaking, laughing, sweating, or simply entering into a state of deep relaxation. These releases help complete the activation and immobility responses in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, often alleviating long-term symptoms.

Point Holding Process

(P.H.P) is used to accelerate trauma release by gaining direct access to the nervous system.  Many studies have concluded that the ‘Vagus Nerve’ is directly responsible for the overall state of relaxation or anxiety in the body. The process begins by holding certain trigger points in the body which help to stimulate the nervous system by generating pressure above certain nerves, causing them to send waves of energy throughout the body where energy has previously been stuck or crystalized. Breaking through these ‘crystals’ will allow a greater amount of energy to be released from the body, creating an overall sense of ease, relaxation and liberation.

Nervous System Regulation

In each session, Brett utilizes the techniques and exercises from his teachers Stanley Rosenberg and Thor Philipsen, who based much of their research on Stephen Porges’ Poly-Vagal Theory. These hands-on techniques work specifically with the five cranial nerves that make up the Social Engagement system in our body which governs feelings of safety, connection, relaxation and trust. By gently massaging, rocking and holding fascia and nerve endings in the neck, face and diaphragm the entire body will experience a deep sense of restoration and rejuvenation.

Structural Integration Bodywork

This involves specific techniques to release tension and restrictions in the fascia. The practitioner uses hands-on manipulation to stretch, realign, and soften the fascia, aiming to improve flexibility and ease of movement.

Movement Education

Clients are taught exercises and ways of moving that promote body alignment and efficient muscle use. This education helps clients understand how to maintain and enhance the benefits of the bodywork in their everyday activities.

Somatic Dialogue

This aspect of Hellerwork focuses on the connection between emotional states and physical posture. Through dialogue, the practitioner helps the client explore emotional tensions that may be contributing to physical tightness and misalignment, promoting a deeper understanding of the body-mind connection.


Pranayama is a term from yoga philosophy that refers to the practice of breath control. It consists of various techniques aimed at regulating and manipulating the breath to enhance physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Pranayama techniques often involve rhythmic breathing patterns, breath retention, and specific breathing exercises.

The word “pranayama” is derived from two Sanskrit words: “prana,” meaning life force or vital energy, and “ayama,” meaning extension or expansion. Therefore, pranayama can be understood as the extension or expansion of the life force through breath control.

Pranayama is an integral part of yoga practice and is believed to have numerous benefits, including stress reduction, improved concentration, increased vitality, and balance of the mind and emotions.


Reiki involves the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner's palms to their patient, which is believed to encourage emotional or physical healing.

Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.
