Brighde Johannsen

I have been immersed in the Healing Arts for over 20 years; with Emergence Care, I have finally found the missing link, the keystone to healing, peace, and deep fulfillment I have been searching for all my life.

My passion for alternative healthcare and a more holistic, spiritual approach to life started in my teens. Back then, I was suffering from almost debilitating chronic tiredness and a deep sense of disconnect from life and everyone around me; as well as being thoroughly fascinated by alternative methods of healing, I found that learning about non-physical dimensions of life, about emotional, mental, and causal bodies and their interconnection with our physical experience, gave me a much broader platform from which to view sickness and health. Most importantly, the deeper sense of meaning and connection to something beyond our ego-based reality helped me to gradually, slowly, find a way out of my depression into more joy, more connectedness, and more energy to face life.

Ever since, I have been intrigued with finding a way to help us re-connect with Spirit, the Divine, God, Source, or whatever you like to call it, and to let that higher aspect of Self flow into our physical, emotional, and mental experience of life. I feel that this is the level where true healing really needs to occur.

I love being able to help my clients on a physical and emotional level with massage and bodywork; I am excited to now be able to offer, with Emergence Care, what I have only been able to dream of for so long - a way that lets us connect deeper with Self than any other I have ever come across on my healing journey. Since discovering EC I have been able to shed many more layers of repressed emotions that have kept my energy and my joy bound up in various parts of my body and psyche; unconscious believes and patterns can resolve and no longer dictate behavior and thoughts. I feel a level of aliveness and incredible joy and connectedness I have never before been able to access, and I know full well that this is only just the beginning!

I cannot even begin to describe the gratitude I feel for being able to share this incredible work with my clients, and to witness the profound shifts and changes happening for them on so many levels! Each session is a deeply humbling and heart opening experience as "receiver" and "giver" become one for brief moments in time, transcending all limitation.

I feel blessed to be a part of this incredible, emerging body of work, and I am looking forward to sharing it with whomever feels called to experiencing it!
