My name is Charles Gilliam.  I have my body therapy practice in the hill town of Shutesbury, outside of Amherst, in western Massachusetts.   I have developed my perceptual skills in body therapies such as Craniosacral Therapy and Zero Balancing and movement disciplines of Aikido and Tai Chi over the last 40 years. I have studied other awareness practices including meditation, the Imago approach, Body-Mind Centering and being a parent. Of the perceptual skills, listening, I feel, is the basis of assisting people in their balancing and healing process.  It is all too often the case where simply being heard, whether at the body, mind or spirit level, brings about a healing.  I am now beginning to call this work Quantum Dance and I write about it in my blog.  The Gene Keys have become an integral part of my life over the past 10 years.

You can read brief version on the body therapies on the Integrative Body Therapy page. My Journey page is a longer version going deeper into the origins of my work. Read about Craniosacral Therapy for children and adults on my Art of Listening page.
