I am Robert Fertman, a Shiatsu Practitioner and an Ontological Life Coach. My clients typically want an integrated body-mind experience of their life. They understand that this requires a new way of being in their body, mind, and feelings. This is accomplished by fully embodying transformation in their own life. 

The work that I offer can liberate you from constraints that limit your full freedom and wellbeing, provided you are really ready to grow, open and ready for it. The focus on your body and its life-force energy, and your personal experience of it. 

Your physical, emotional, and thinking self, which is your identity, manifests the life-force energy that is living within you. It is expressed as who you are in the world, and who you know yourself to be, physically, emotionally, and mentally. If you are aligned and integrated within that life-force is able to move or flow freely in your life. That is living fully-embodied with a conscious awareness of sensation, feeling, and thinking in your body.

 

In life, our self-awareness will naturally contract and expand, following the natural laws of Yin and Yang just like everything throughout all of nature. However, when sometimes energy is locked and does not move, we can find ourselves also locked in a body of pain. This is often expressed as physical pain, emotional armor or rigid thinking or fixed and certain opinions. Often at the root there is a void of energy, or an armored structure of concentrated energy that functions to defend against remembered, imagined, or real threats. When these energetic states have evolved in the living of your life, your possibilities are naturally constrained, because we are structurally determined in the way we show up in life, based on the way our energy manifests our body. These energies can be habitually persistent, but they can be made to move.

 

My work is about helping you to De-armor yourself.  This is accomplished by freeing you from these constraints by dispersing energy or tonifying empty places of weaknesses. This allows sensations and emotions to be felt and expressed, and also by providing you with an access to being a new observer of yourself being fully embodied and possessing greater proprioceptive awareness of your embodied mind. Often people experience the correcting of misperceptions in thinking about your life that have caused you to be limited by false beliefs in a physically constrained body. Thus you are clear and make accurate assessments, and the body itself is fully capable of movement and also the natural experience of pleasure. When our embodiment functions in this manner we can naturally experience health, a relaxed presence, and a sense of wellbeing.
