Shana Dee LaPointe, ISP
Integrative Somatic Practitioner

My dynamic background is deep-rooted in guiding individuals through life's profound challenges, from addiction to major emotional transitions, which has given me unparalleled insight and the ability to help people navigate these challenges and establish mindful connections and trust going forward.

With 16 years experience working with my clients, consulting for corporations and executives

in the heartbeat of New York City and through my own recovery, 

I've seen one common thread:

We all need to heal.  

Our five basic needs: To be seen, to be heard, to be respected, to be safe and to belong.

When the central nervous system is calm and safe, the mind becomes clearer, life becomes more effectively lived and thriving becomes possible. Everything that shows up in the physical body is feedback. The body is always talking to us, it is our job to learn to listen, honor and respond accordingly.

Somatization is the name used when emotional distress is expressed by physical symptoms. Everyone experiences somatization at times. Examples include your heart beating fast or butterflies in your stomach when you feel nervous or muscles becoming tense and sore when you feel angry or under stress. Researchers have noted that a trauma is stored in somatic memory and expressed as changes in the biological stress response.

As a Certified Integrative Somatic Practitioner, I help my clients more effectively deal with stress, anxiety, depression and trauma through tools and techniques that will empower you to increase your capacity for stressors, process and release stuck trauma and better understand and re-write the neural pathways (behavior patterns) that have developed as a result of current and past stuck emotions.

I am trained in over 40 different somatic techniques to help you release what is preventing you from living a physically and emotionally pain-free life. 

I've also curated a proven 10-session Healing Series that is guaranteed to help you

regain your confidence, happiness and peace of mind.

I would be honored to work with you.
