What is “The Burch Method?”

When I put my hands on my client’s body, a conversation begins.

It might go something like this: their body says, “Hang out here with your hands…” As I pause there and I wait… until suddenly, now we are ready.  It says…“Follow this turn of tissue. Hold it right there. Now I want you to push into this hand. Now, turn back the other way.” I’ll say, “What about this?” and it responds, “yeah that’s it.”  And the client feels that moment, just like I do.  That’s the first part of the conversation:  being with the body the way it is presenting in the here and now.

It’s a co-created conversation. I know I’m doing something, because I’m following directions and feeling the results happen immediately in my hands, and the client absolutely feels it too. That’s the second part of the conversation.  I am connected with their blueprint, the untainted part of themselves they may not even know is there.  It is the pure part, and that directs me.

When somebody lies down on my table and I put my hands on them, I say, “Here?” and they go “Yes!” Through this intuitive inquiry process with words and sensations, my clients are guided to access points and sensations they never have before, and understand their body in an entirely new way. There’s a feeling of being completely safe and completely seen in my hands.

I’m in dialogue with their body. I understand, because I’m right there with them, and together, we are going to change this.

This is what I call intuitive conversation. Guided by this process, I bring together three key elements to create deep and lasting healing for my clients and their bodies, that isn’t just a quick fix where you leave feeling great and then come back like nothing ever changed. Through applying this system to my own body, I was able to reverse severely crippling scar tissue, and return my body back to the way it was supposed to feel. I’ve seen it transform hundreds of bodies, and I know it works.

The 3 elements are: 

  • Alignment: Physically returning the structures of the body back to where they are designed to be, so that you experience the fluidity and flow that is your natural state no matter your age or history.
  • Attunement: Teaching you the lost language of Sensation; what it means, and how to respond to it intelligently, so that you can enter into the healing conversation with your own body and begin to shift your internal landscape.  Because when you can feel  what is happening, you can do something about it!
  • Assembly: We have a fundamental problem: Having a lot of moving parts and holding them together.   By re-building integrated Core Structures, you cultivate empowerment, deeper  presence, better performance and freedom from pain.

I spent many years as a physical therapist doing great work, and my clients would still come back in roughly the same shape as the first time, just by returning to their same habits and patterns, as familiar to them as the ground they walk on.

My question is: How can I support you and what can I teach you so that when you walk out of my office, you know what to do so that you come back with different awareness, different patterns, and different outcomes?

If you do what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always gotten.

Until you start changing that inner conversation, you’re going to get results that reflect those patterns, even if the original pain or symptom has shifted.

This is what the Burch Method is all about, the sum of all of these parts. It’s an applied and complete healing system that brings any body back towards its original state of flow, ease of movement, youthful fluidity and strength, regardless of your history of pain, injury, or aging.
