Meet Connie Merk

I am a dedicated professional body awareness teacher, back pain specialist, and health advocate, ready to do whatever it takes to help you heal your back pain.

My own passionate quest for personal growth and finding my true life purpose, which is to help other people heal their bodymind, and spirit began about twenty years ago while lying in a hospital bed after an accident that would leave me in relentless pain for many years. For the first time since the birth of our first child, I had time for myself, time to rest and the opportunity to ponder about my life, while I was waiting for my injuries to heal. Married with 3 children, I realized that I had dedicated all my energy, interests and time to keep my family happy and our home nice and tidy. There had been no time left at all for me. I had looked after every member of my family, except myself. I felt that something crucial was lacking in my life. I couldn’t tell what it was, but it somehow dawned on me that there had to be more to me and my life than my marriage, my kids, and our home. I was 29 years old.

My journey out of pain took me on a depressing path of endless therapy sessions, with one unsuccessful new therapy that promised relief after another, including physical therapy, massages, acupuncture and acupressure treatments. I tried craniosacral therapy, Feldenkrais, and became a Reiki practitioner. Over the years I spent many weeks in hospitals for different pain treatments and to learn Pain Management. Every now and again I would find short relief, but there was never a day when I was not in pain. And as I reacted badly to the pain killers I was given, they were no option for me either.

And then, one day, it happened: I attended a movement and dance workshop, and, like a miracle, the next day the pain was gone. I did not understand what had happened and how and why I was suddenly out of pain. It wasn’t until five years later, while attending a seminar teaching about the potential of the human mind, that I understood how that ‘miracle‘ had happened.

Once I became aware of the relationship between the mind and the body, I realized that this was the missing link. For the last 19 years, I have dedicated my life to learning all about how the body and the mind are contributing to us either being healthy or becoming sick. By diving into the fields of quantum physics, epigenetics, energy healing and the latest brain research, I could see the potential of using the mind to better any health condition, no matter how lifethreatening the diagnosis may be, or whether an illness seems to be incurable. I realized that hardly anyone is using the full potential of their minds, and that is not just true when it comes to health and healing, but in life in general.

Besides conducting all the research on the body and the mind, I was working as a body awareness teacher, implementing and incorporating all my newfound knowledge into my teachings. This website is dedicated to sharing my knowledge and firsthand experiences gained while working with hundreds of clients in my classes and private sessions, especially people with back pain. Word was spreading fast that I had helped people finding relief after only a few sessions, sometimes after years of unsuccessful treatments. Now I want to share how you, too, can learn to understand your body and influence your mind to change your health and your life for the better.
