Registered Craniosacral Therapist
Bruce Gioia is a registered craniosacral therapist and designated RCST. He has extensive experience working with Ayurvedic massage after years of study with East Indian masters of the art. His counseling skills are based on the transformative healing powers of awareness rooted in present moment experience. Presently he is a student of Hakomi a form of western psychotherapy based on eastern Buddhist principals.
Bruce was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Early interests in meditation lead him to India where he lived for 15 of the past 20 years. This allowed him to effectively pursue his search for a deeper understanding of consciousness. Much of his time was spent in ashrams studying the art of inner alchemy through numerous self-awareness methods and techniques. Along with the pursuit of meditative practices a fascination with the healing arts was a parallel and complimentary study. In particular Craniosacral Biodynamic Therapy has come to the forefront as his primary healing modality. Zen counseling and Deep Tissue massage are effectively employed to assist in his core work.
As a healing practitioner Bruce’s perceptual skills are well developed. First and foremost he is able to create and hold a refined therapeutic space. He honors and deeply respects the personal history and healing process of his clients. There is no effort to willfully impose change or pass judgments. The focus is entirely on supporting the inherent healing dynamics of the client no matter what the circumstances.
