About Matthew Cavanna:


Matthew Cavanna

A bridge-builder by nature, Matthew Cavanna has synthesized diverse trainings in shamanism, spirituality, performance, contact improvisation, bodywork, somatic therapy, limbic imprint recoding and conscious birth practices into a method he calls Living Bridges. Within this container, Matthew works with individuals and groups exploring the intersection of healing, birth, prayer, play, touch and movement.

A graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, Matthew Cavanna is a founding member of the Movement Medicine Collective and the long-running Ecstatic Dance in Grass Valley, CA. Over the course of his journey as a healer, Matthew has received in-depth training in massage, the Hakomi Method, Somatic Therapy, Attachment Theory, Body-Mind Centering, Emotional Freedom Technique, Family Constellations, and Jon Eisman’s Re-Creation of the Self Method. As a certified Birth into Being Facilitator, Matthew is able to use his insights into the power of the conscious birthing field to help individuals and companies clear their creative pathways for whatever projects they are “birthing” into the world.

Deeply committed to an embodied life, Matthew Cavanna helps those he works with increase their presence in all areas. By anchoring through the conduit of the body, his work grounds them in the power and wisdom at their center. Matthew is always humbled to bear witness to the depth of his client’s lives and he is committed to being worthy of the trust that is placed in him.
