Malia Burkhart


Somatic Massage
My role as a practitioner is to help each client gain a better sense of their own body through massage and movement. Sessions may include: Fascia unwinding through deep steady pressure, releasing patterns of holding and tension; Supported movement and assisted stretching; Deep muscle tissue release, outlining and describing specific muscles to release and relax; Quiet, slow, and more subtle forms of touch that communicate with the body with gentleness and calm; and subtle methods to integrate shifts and changes. Every session is unique, responding to your body’s needs. For more information,visit

Moving Stories Workshops
“Moving Stories” is a form of body-sourced improvisation involving authentic movement and spontaneous storytelling.  Memories are stored in our kinesthetic memory.  By freeing our bodies to express, we rediscover these experiences and describe them in poetry and stories. In these workshops, I guide participants in following their own intuition, and build group-trust as we learn to hold safe space for each others’ explorations.
