Ariel Campbell
Emotional Somatic Coach

Ariel is an Emotional Somatic Coach specializing in Functional Neurology. She has been in practice for over 10 years and continues to grow and learn more every day.

Words from Ariel: My journey isn’t uncommon for many women, having dealt with years of physical, sexual and emotional trauma. It had resulted in a multitude of symptoms: High functioning anxiety, depression, TMJ pain, chronic joint/back pain, low libido, panic attacks, hormone imbalances, sleepless nights, binge eating, years of intoxication with drugs and alcohol, etc. I spent years in talk therapy and was good at intellectualizing my emotions. I thought, “This is it. It doesn’t get better from here; I just get better at handling my “Normal.” It wasn’t until I started implementing body work and restoring safety to my nervous system that I felt a significant difference in my mental, emotional, and physical health.”

It has since been Ariel’s journey and purpose to help fellow humans come Home, to the safety of themselves. Ariel has been in ongoing education to bring you the best and most cutting-edge treatments. Ariel uses a targeted non-invasive approach with a synthesis of advanced neurological corrective techniques in conjunction with movement, emotional clearing and skilled soft tissue work to tap into the subconscious mind to help her clients thrive for life.
