Maxi Schönteich

Trauma-informed pain specialist and nervous system expert

Have you been told that your pain is due to a weak core, an out-of-alignment spine or an unstable pelvis? Do you feel chronically exhausted or just not quite right but no doctor's visit gives you a satisfying answer?

By the time my clients consult me, they have often tried many healing modalities to fix their broken bodies, with little to no success in full recovery from their pain, chronic fatigue and debilitating anxiety. They often feel confused, frustrated and hopeless; unable to understand why their bodies are not working the way they expect them to. Your symptoms are REAL, but you are not broken. 

I know how impossible healing can feel, but I also know relief is possible. You don’t have to heal alone.

I trust my body. Now it's time you trust yours.

My body and I have not always been friends. I was brought to this line of work from a place you may find yourself in now, out of touch with myself. I've lived with chronic anxiety my entire life, ignoring exhaustion, dizziness and pain. Unsure what I really wanted or who I really was I put my needs last and prioritized leading my life with my brain.  

It took me until my late twenties to understand that all along my body was trying to guide me towards freedom and health. I just didn't know how to listen. 

Stepping into Mind-Body and Functional Medicine, I became passionate about embodied healing work. Over the years, what I’ve come to know is that our bodies are brilliant and no matter where you are on your path, you are not broken. Whatever you are experiencing makes sense, and all you need is a sense of direction and a roadmap to healing.​​

Unsure which option suits you best?

I am so excited you are here. Showing up for yourself is a huge first step towards a pain-free life.
