Massage:

I specialize in pain relief and chronic pattern realignment.  That’s a fancy way of saying that you will get off my table with a different body than you crawled onto it with.  The stories of your life are held in the tissues of your body.  Each body is like a rubix cube that I get to unravel and solve. As a practitioner since 2007 and an instructor since 2009, I pride myself on staying current with the most recent findings in Sports Medicine, Anatomy, and Holistic Medicine.  Sessions typically include a mixture of the modalities I have studied, which include, Thai Massage, Ayurvedic Abhyanga, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Rolfing®, Esalen Massage®, Chavutti Thirumal, Lymphatic, Craniosacral, Clairvoyant Meditation, Shamanic Medicine Wheel, ThetaHealing®, Reiki, Myofacial Release, Gua Sha, and Chinese Fire Cups.  This will be the best massage of your life.

Common Sense Consultations- Everything around us is made up of some equation of the Five Elements, Air, Ether, Fire, Water, Earth. How we relate to the world around us directly affects the amount of balance or dis-ease we experience. What we eat, who we interact with, where we live… all these things affect us in some way. If we listen, the body will show us its true state of balance or imbalance in the present moment and from that, together we will create easy, common sense, lifestyle adjustment to re-align your body, mind, and spirit. Balance is incredibly easy when you take the time to look and listen to what your body is telling you.

Shirodhara- This is a staple Ayurvedic Treatment for stress. The treatment consists of slowly pouring warm oil over the head for 45-60 minutes, resulting in the client falling into a deep, almost catatonic state of relaxation. In this state, the body is able to heal itself by releasing serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin. This resets the central nervous system and is amazing at relieving anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, jet-lag, headaches, and hypertension.

Eye Neti- The eyes are the window to the Soul and also the window from your Soul to the world.  How well are you seeing the world around you?  This treatment cleans the tear ducts and softens tension in the ligaments around the eyes, while freshening your vision and combating wrinkles.  A warm ghee and castor oil mixture is poured into a dough damn that has been placed around the eye.  The tissue around the eye is then massaged to release dirt, mucous and tension from the eye socket.  This treatment is great for tired, overused and dry eyes.  It helps deepen sleep, relieve headaches and can improve vision for some people.


Apothecary:

You are unique; your body care should be too!  Every plant and oil has specific medicinal uses, but did you know that every one reacts differently to each person’s unique constitution?  Or that each reacts differently depending on where and how it was grown?  Using Ayurveda and your body’s unique blueprint, I create a formula that is perfect for you.  Your needs, environment, and intention are all taken into account.  No two people are the same and no two formulas are the same.  Whether it is an essential oil blend, bath blend, face serum, hydrosol, or body scrub, I will create the perfect self-care product for you.  Book a free consultation today and let’s see what we can create for you!  Or check out my online store HERE.

Structural Movement Therapy:

This technique builds a strong understanding of your body and how it works, creates balance within you and allows you to heal and grow. Structural Movement Therapy is a dynamic mix of passive and active stretching and strengthening using Yoga Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Soft Tissue Release. I work closely with you to deepen your understanding of your body and its patterns, adding strength where needed and surrendering what is no longer serving you. Whether you are looking to play with your kids with more ease, wow the crowd on the dance floor or improve your golf swing, this modality will increase your quality of life.


sha·man

/ˈSHämən,ˈSHāmən/

: Someone who guides you through the fire and out the other side.  Practitioners of this skill are often called Medicine Women, Healers, Witch Doctors, Kahunas and Wizards.


Feng Shui:

Your home is your Sacred Space, it is the place you go to relax, rejuvenate and recalibrate. It is also a place that people before you have called home, it is not a new Temple. The land it is built on has held generations of Humans and Creatures alike. Wars have been fought, Love made and Beings Born. Ancestors and energies can linger for lifetimes and it is important to bring yourself into alignment with those who have come before. When moving into a new space it is wonderful to greet those who have inhabited the land prior, acknowledge them and bring them on board to support your new adventure in the space and on that land and in that space. Homes, as well as old furniture, hold onto the energy of each owner. My job as a Feng Shui Practitioner is to align your space to your specific intentions, make way for abundance in all areas of your life and to clear any prior owner or ancestor’s energy. These sessions can be done in person or via video chat.


Soul Alignment:

We all are wounded many times during our lifetime, and each of these wounds leaves its own scar. These scars, much like the scar tissue in the body, can be sticky and hold us back from our full potential. If you are experiencing a repetitive pattern in your life or a consistent block in moving forward or achieving goals, you might be dealing with energetic scar tissue. Soul Alignment sessions work to break up this energetic scar tissue by finding the original wound, healing it and then pulling your energy forward to the present moment and aligning it with your Soul’s purpose. This technique marries Talk Therapy with Energetic Healing for an impactful, life progressing, experience. These sessions are most often done via phone.


Manifestation:

Are you having a difficult time envisioning what you want for your life or bringing that vision into reality? Manifestation Sessions work to discover the unconscious beliefs you hold that are blocking you from discovering and creating the life you want. Once we uncover those beliefs, we remove them and create new, positive beliefs that will propel you into the next stage of living your highest and best reality. These sessions are most often done via phone.


Travel Coaching:

Life coaching but for TRAVEL! Nothing teaches and stretches you more in life than getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing new things. I have the awesome reality of being both a Healer and a Traveller. I started traveling the world at the age of 15 and I have never looked back! These sessions consist of a bit of my Manifesting Sessions, a bit of my Soul Aligning Sessions and a bit of a travel agent appointment. Together we will discover what your Soul wants to gain from your travels and mix that in with what your Heart wants, what your eyes want, what your stomach wants and what your bank account can handle. You will end up with a travel experience that will support your growth and make your Soul sing!

The Conscious Alcoholic – Alcohol has been used in every medicinal system since the beginning of time. Study the worlds’ medicinal history and you will find tinctures, medicated wines, and various other topical potions. Alcohol is amazing at extracting the medicinal benefits of plants and herbs, delivering them to the body to relieve pain and promote healing. So why aren’t we applying all that knowledge to our cocktails? I mean, if it’s good for my kidneys to put my foot behind my head, there has to be an herb I can put in my martini to promote… something. Right?  Well, yes, actually there is. Using Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, I have not only created delicious cocktail recipes; I have broken the properties of each spirit and herb down so that you can discover how to drink to balance your body. That’s right folks, healthy drinking! By the time you are done reading, you will understand why some alcohols work for you, while others leave you praying to the Porcelain Goddess. PURCHASE NOW!
