ALEX KEWITT, BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPIST
Alex Kewitt (She/They) is a bodyworker, facilitator, artist, and youth worker. Alex has nine years of experience working within the field of Human Services in a variety of roles including supervising homecare services for adults with chronic illnesses and disabilities, providing case management and advocacy to folks living in low income public housing, and working with unhoused youth. They found themselves drawn to study BCST while receiving sessions of their own throughout that time and is now a graduate of a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy program with Body Intelligence.
She appreciated the dynamic, collaborative and creative nature of the work, as well as its grounding in anatomy and physiology. Alex noticed how BCST empowered new ways to relate to her body, her mental health and trauma history, and supported her in accessing increased health, resiliency and resources within herself. Alex’s bodywork practice combines skills learned working within human services as well as her art and movement background.
When working with Alex, one can expect care that comes with a trauma informed lens. In her own words, Alex says, “consent is really important to me, especially around touch. I appreciate a good mix of silence/stillness, as well as dialoguing with clients during sessions to hear what’s emerging for them. I tend to use humor, irreverence and playfulness in my work as well.
>Anyone can benefit from BCST. This modality is really gentle and subtle, but can have profound positive impacts. It’s a good way for folks to pause, rest, process and digest by tuning in and listening to what their body is expressing. BCST helps to reconnect with the body’s resiliency and self-regulating capacities, reorienting towards one’s overall wholeness. This work is really supportive when recovering from illness, injury, concussions, and surgeries. It’s good for supporting anxiety, depression, ADHD, sleep issues and general calming of the nervous system. It’s great for pregnancy, miscarriage, post-birth support, tinnitus and TMJ issues, acute and chronic pain, and helping release trauma held in the body.
Alex is Queer, a parent, and of European descent. They are committed to continually engaging in embodied, antiracist work of unlearning and dismantling harmful patterns around whiteness, as well as tending to their able-bodied privilege. With this, they feel that it’s vital to deepen their awareness of the impacts of oppression on bodies and communities, while holding an abundant hope towards healing and liberation for all.
Alex is grateful to offer their services to the SuNu community. They are especially excited to work with Queer and Trans folks and white folks wanting support around white identity issues. They look forward to working with people who are pregnant/needing postpartum or miscarriage care and with babies and parents needing support around breast/chest feeding.
She currently lives on occupied Dakota and Anishinaabe land, in Minneapolis, MN. They are a parent of a toddler and have two cats. They love reading, dancing, biking, performance art, poetry and food.
Alex is currently seeing patients at our Minnetonka location.
