Meet Linn Fry of Soul and Body Integration

Today we’d like to introduce you to Linn Fry.

Linn, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I think the biggest part of my story is why I started. We all have dreams about what we want to do when we grow up and sometimes it happens for us, other times we find something that is much better, or we are left dreaming.

However, for myself, I was guided to what I do. I feel as though I didn’t have much of a say in it, and luckily I love doing what I do. Since I was a small child, I would work on bodies using the meridian system, though at the time I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and that it was actually a used modality in other parts of the world. When I wasn’t feeling well, I would work on certain parts of my body. When my family members weren’t feeling well, I felt the need to touch them. I was a very sensitive child and always picked up on the emotions and energy around me. I know it must have been frustrating for my parents.

By the time I was 15, I lost both of my grandma’s in their early 50’s to cancer, my uncle in his 30’s and my mom who was only 40. I saw a lot of illness and death very early on in life. While it created a lot of fear that I had to work through for a large portion of my life, it was also the flame that lit the path to what I am doing now. I first started diving into nutrition and functional medicine at the age of 18. I started helping people overcome “dis-ease” that they thought would never change. 5 years into that path, I decided to get in touch with Reiki, which is also something I had been doing as a young child, but stayed away from, because it felt really intense to me early on.

I then began teaching yoga at the age of 24 and offered my clients an all encompassed healing modality that worked to reset their mind, body, and spirit. Fast forward several years, I got really sick and almost died from a virus that attacked my liver right at the same time my partner was diagnosed with colon cancer at the age of 30. I came out of mine through means of self-healing and healed deeply internally, whereas my partner did not. I decided to follow my inner guidance and moved to San Diego shortly after, and happened upon Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.

I knew the second I stepped foot in the door, that I was about to add to my modalities in ways I had not planned. I not only learned more about the meridian system that I once had used in my life intuitively, but I also found my passion for Structural Integration and BodyMind, which is what I continue to practice now.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
To say that any of this has been a smooth road would be comical. The majority of the path has had major struggles, however, when I am actually practicing and seeing the results immediately with my clients, it all makes sense as to why it all happened the way it did. I don’t think I would be doing it had my path to this point been easy. There were days I wanted to give up, ok let’s be honest, there were MANY days I wanted to give up, and then one day, I just realized that I am exactly where I need to be and doing exactly what I want to be doing.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Soul and Body Integration – what should we know?
I incorporate all modalities from my past into my practice when necessary, however, my main concentration is assisting people in finding their most optimal health through body alignment and figuring out where they are storing past trauma with Structural Integration and BodyMind. The physical aspect of the work leaves my clients feeling as though they are actually in their bodies and can move in ways they didn’t think was possible. The energetic side of it, leaves them feeling as though they are able to release stagnant energy and trauma that they had been holding onto, sometimes for their whole lives.

A typical session entails a client telling me where they are feeling tension or pain in their body. I examine their entire body to see where they are misaligned, and how the structure needs to be corrected. I work the areas that are obvious and I also use intuition to find the spaces that need the most work. It is one of my favorite things to watch clients respond to areas they would have never thought needed work. The number one question I am asked is, ” How did you know to go there”? Structural Integration is not a light style of bodywork. It is extremely deep and consistent. It requires deep breathing and the willingness and wants to make drastic changes in your structure which always translates into the rest of your life as well.

As far as the Somatic releasing that is done through BodyMind work, it can be a very emotional moment when a client starts to release trapped emotions and trauma that they had been storing for years. It is quite common for a client to start crying through a session as they begin remembering and releasing old stories that arise through the session. I adore what I do and I am so happy that I have done the work I needed on myself in order to assist others on their healing journey. I love that I am able to offer clients such deep-rooted healing on so many levels thanks to my past and all that I have experienced and learned, through schooling as well as life lessons. I am able to offer clients genuine care and understanding in so many areas of life.

There are times that people are guided to me, simply to receive information from me, as I am a messenger in many ways, and I have helped clients by simply telling them something that they had been waiting years to hear. I couldn’t explain it to myself for the longest time, so I just started going with the flow. It is such a gift to have so many modalities to offer my clients. It is a genuine “one-stop shop” for those looking to bring their body, mind, and spirit back into alignment.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My mom is and always will be my biggest supporter even if she is not here in the physical. She always taught me to be myself and do what I love, and it was her death specifically that set me on the path of helping others. My grandfather helped me in so many different ways growing up too and I couldn’t have done it without him.

I have great friends who have been supportive the entire way. Mark Guay, Maria Padron, and Crystal Star are three that really nudge me to go further with what I do. They not only believe in what I do, but they have advocated for me like no other. It is beautiful to have such positivity and love surrounding me.
