 "Freedom from Body Memory"  
FREE Talk with Jonathan Tripodi
From his Awakening to Body Memory in Part I through the fascinating science and case studies in Part II, Jonathan illuminates a healing path that is missed in traditional medicine and therapy that ultimately transforms body memory and accumulated stress, which in turn enables individuals to manifest positive changes in their body and life that were previously considered impossible. Uncover the secrets of body memory and how one’s unconscious hold on the past is the invisible source of pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and repetitive life experiences.

For almost two decades Jonathan has explored body memory and its relationship to chronic pain, stress, illness and behavior. His Body Memory Recall - BMR - approach has supported thousands of individuals to heal old wounds and experience renewed states of health, vitality, and function. His approach to therapeutic bodywork supports one to come out of survival mode and surrender to one's self healing intelligence.
In so doing, a person can release accumulated stress, fear and pain from past experiences, and actualize renewed states of health, vitality, inner peace and joy.

Intro to Body Memory Recall
with Jonathan Tripodi
A healthy, vital body is one that is free of the past. Old injuries, emotions, and fears are often stored within the body causing stress, tension, and restriction within the tissues. Body Memory Recall is a form of hands-on healing that integrates gentle forms of touch, pressure, and stretch to release old body memories and their associated body tensions. BMR significantly improves your health and function. For many, BMR has proven to be pivotal for creating lasting change.

For almost two decades Jonathan Tripodi has explored body memory and its relationship to chronic pain, stress, illness and behavior. His BMR approach has supported thousands of individuals to heal old wounds and experience renewed states of health, vitality, and function. His approach to therapeutic bodywork supports one to come out of survival mode and surrender to one's self-healing intelligence. In so doing, a person can release accumulated stress, fear, and pain from past experiences, and actualize renewed states of health, vitality, inner peace, and joy.

BMR Healing Intensives w/Jonathan

To best assist others to achieve new levels of healing, freedom and vitality, Jonathan has created the BMR Healing Intensive. His 20 years of experience has shown him that people have accumulated body memory over a lifetime and they need concentrated support and healing energy to breakthrough lifelong patterns of tension and the habit to suppress rather than express - especially emotion. The format of a BMR Healing Intensive is 1.5 hours of BMR in the morning and 1.0 hours of BMR in the afternoon, for 5 or 10 days. For those who may be limited in time and resources, there is also the 3 day mini intensive. Jonathan provides BMR Healing Intensives throughout the year at various sites across the United States. To schedule sessions or for further information, email Jonathan:
