LC Continenza, LMT
LC Continenza, LMT, is a genderqueer/trans bodyworker based out of Seattle who’s pronouns are they/them/theirs. LC thoroughly enjoys working with the complexities of the human body and truly believes in the body's capacity to heal and regenerate itself on every level including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. During a bodywork session with LC, an intentional container is held for you to release what may no longer be serving thus creating an opening to invite in an invigorating and uplifting experience. LC's approach combines many different styles of massage to work with each individually unique body, treating your body as a whole system to assist in the empowerment and restoration of itself. It is a fundamental principle of LC’s to create and hold a welcoming healing space for all people, in particular marginalized and oppressed communities. LC believes everyone should have accessibility to bodywork, education and wellness at large and offers a number of sliding scale slots each month.
LC is actively involved in gender/queer politics as well as working against systematic oppression. LC developed the Beyond the Binary workshop series after extensive research around transgender and gender non-conforming people’s experiences of navigating the healthcare world and through their own lived experience as a genderqueer/trans person navigating the same arena. On too many occasions, one found themselves educating their provider about “bodies that don’t fit the mold” thus finding it difficult on many levels to access the proper care that is needed for optimal health and well-being. LC was inspired to develop the workshop program, Beyond the Binary, so more providers can be trained on trans-competency and become visible in order for trans and non-binary people to have access to an abundance of good care.
I HOLD SPACE FOR OUR SESSIONS IN A WARM AND BODY POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT. I ENJOY WORKING WITH AND WELCOME ALL BODIES ON & OFF THE GENDER SPECTRUM INCLUDING MARGINALIZED FOLX WHO ARE NOT SEEN, HEARD OR UNDERSTOOD BY THE SYSTEM AT LARGE . I OFFER A NUMBER OF SLIDING SCALE slots EACH MONTH AND LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU
