work is co-creative and unique to each individual.
Feldenkrais principals and practice are the center of my work. I bring
to this core orientation a strong background in anatomy and physiology, a refined
sense of touch, and an ability to hold presence. This blends with each
persons desired outcome for our time together.
I find that what a person perceives as their "problem"
simply the body's latest adjustment to a long series of adaptations to
life's many challenges and mishaps. Through movement and touch,
we explore together, and patterns and tendencies are revealed. As
we acknowledge and support each adaptation,the brain is able to breakup
the separate responses that helped at the time of each challenge but
may be limiting full function in the person now. What comes forth
then, is their greater sense of wholeness, balance, wellness, harmony,
grace, ease and vitality.
work is influenced deeply by her life experience. The path
that she took to this work winds through teaching, counseling, blueberry
farming, family, spinning, weaving, entrepenuerial adventures, studies
phychology, and travel around the world. Three car accidents
in the late 1980's gave her an invitation to the "Healers Journey" that
refuse. She began studying and practicing in 1990 and has been
working her ever deepening, hands, on, "magic" ever since.

Reflections about Nancy and her sessions
work defies description, but I can say she is one of those rare gems who
synthesizes a number of modalities and can simultaneously access angelic
realms with complete grace and confidence. She makes my body hum
as she teases out those hidden places that are resisting harmony, and our
work together is like a springboard that allows me to live with greater
expansion and awareness. For me, her work is simply Empowering Bliss!"
Upton, Life Coach, Boston Mass
"There is a purity in Nancy's work that helps me come
into authentic balance through an accessing and translation of the sense
of my own well
being." Susan Leao, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Montegue, CA

touch is from a deep knowing from far beyond the physical. She brings a deep loving
awareness to help my own self-healing work."

to Nancy Crystal my 71-year-old body is more comfortable, stronger
and works better than it has in several years. I'm grateful for
Nancy's high level of skill in working with my physical body but also
for her loving and caring attention to my emotional, mental and spiritual
bodies. I feel comfortable and safe with her on all levels.

has the gift of intuitively knowing what needs to be healed, and she
shares it through touch. She knows what my body needs and where
to work. When I get off her table, the energy flows with a new
awareness and understanding. I am greatful to be in her presence." Terri

Nancy Crystal goes on my body, it's like she is playing a symphony, and
each time I have a session the
symphony is different!
