These are the healing modalities that I practice. Customized integrative bodywork sessions incorporate the modalities that can best serve each person.
Listening Touch Integrative Bodywork
In a Listening Touch session, we start with a grounding meditation and some compassionate listening. I listen with my hands and my heart and we co-create a customized, integrative blend of bodywork created just for you. Massage can be gentle or deep, depending on what your body-mind-spirit is needing. You will leave feeling renewed, relaxed and revitalized.
BodyMind Coaching is highly effective strategy to help you learn the language that your body speaks. It’s talking to you… all the time! We look at habits and patterns that are keeping you stuck, and use your physiology and intuition of the body to establish new neural pathways that help you feel aligned, energized, at peace, and inspired to take the steps towards the life of your dreams.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymph Drainage uses gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to stimulate the lymphatic vessels to carry vital immune system fluid through the body, and remove waste. It helps the body to heal quickly from injuries, surgical trauma, and edema. This modality renews and detoxifies the body.
Acupressure & Reflexology
Acupressure uses the same theory and energy points used in acupuncture, only in acupressure, stimulation is provided by gentle, firm pressure of hands. And Reflexology uses a map of the body that corresponds to points in the feet. When these points are pressed, energy flow is increased through the meridians and organs, relieving stress, improving circulation, and restoring vitality.
Acupressure & Reflexology can be added into any bodywork session.
CranioSacral Therapy & Core Synchronism
CranioSacral Therapy & Core Synchronism use a feather light touch to gently synchronize the cerebral spinal fluid and life force energy with every bone, organ, muscle, element, and chakra. This treatment releases trauma and saturates the body with the life force energy that is contained in the fluid. A light touch is used to listen to the fluid pulse, slowing the body down to an intensely relaxed state, and gently encouraging the body to balance and heal itself at the deepest level.
Hakomi Inspired Bodywork utilizes the body as a “doorway” into uncovering core material that is often buried in our subconscious mind. Some of our formative memories are stored in the body and generate core beliefs that often create unnecessary suffering. Hakomi creates a safe atmosphere for these memories, beliefs, habits and emotions to surface in order to be discovered, witnessed and studied. Often, a desire to create a more harmonious way of being emerges, and the new self-understanding and mindfulness assists you in bringing this transformation into your daily life.
Hakomi can be mixed into most bodywork sessions
Wise Womb Healing
Wise Womb and Abdominal Healing is based on the ancient understanding in the Mayan culture that the abdomen is the center of our being. This bodywork gently and directly supports the alignment of the reproductive organs, intestines and pelvic structure in order to create greater connection to our creative center, resulting in decreased pelvic pain, healthier menstruation, fertility, and spiritual well-being.
Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting women. Prenatal Massage has been proven to decrease muscle pain and tension, aid in circulation of vital nutrients to the baby, reduce swelling, and relieve stress and anxiety. This deeply nurturing massage will leave the mother feeling relaxed, restored, and calm.
