Here are some of my signature session designed from 13 years of training and experience in working with clients.

I see clients for Integrative Massage where I can combine my massage technique training to offer “a perfect for you” massage. I have specific certifications in Cranio Sacral, Aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Hot Stone and Reflexology. I love combining energy work and spa treatments to help you feel deeply connected and in tune. I invite you to share your transformation time with me.

– The Works! –

Ever need to to just hit reset? Get Tuned in? I’ve created “The Works”, a 2 hour session that starts by pulling a past, present, future card spread. This will help focus your energy in the session. I’ll incorporate energy work (reiki, polarity, cranio sacral), massage (deep tissue and Swedish), sound therapy, chakra chromo therapy imagery (sometimes guided) and the grounding use of crystals, hot stones and towels. The WooWoo is real and you are YOU, only “reset” better.

One client said, “this is not a massage, this is an experience.”

– Be Aligned With A Earth Star Spirit Massage –

“The earth star chakra anchors the etheric and astral body to this life-time and the soul star chakra connects us to the ever expansive higher self.”

In this 2 hour session we use an Intuitive deck to bring awareness to the current energy field and anchor the session in this time dimension. I will use solfeggio coded tuning forks to get connected to information around archetypal chakra work that is manifesting along your personal past, present, future timeline. These solfeggio codes activate sacred geometry and help the DNA matrix realign to and remember soul purpose. We use gentle marma point massage and reiki along with cranio sacral to connect and soothe the body. Essential oils and crystals will help unlock the energy centers to that the physical body can follow. Great attention is paid to the head and feet as these are the entry and exit points of the etheric sushumna (main energy channel) and connector to the earth and soul star chakras. You will receive a follow up email identifying some chakra archetype information gleaned from the session.

Clients have marveled at troubles melting away, tensions easing, experienced lucid dreaming and eureka moments.

Ayurveda utilizes the curative properties oils, herbs to improve health and relieve stress. Enjoy the benefits of the ancient science of Ayurveda in a modern setting. This session includes Abyanga (oils massage), Garshan (dry skin brushing), and a Mini Shirodhara (oil streaming down on the 3rd eye point and hot oil treatment on the hair). Clients love the feeling of deep relaxation offered by this treatment and have remarked that they feel as if they have been reborn back into their body!

– Get In Tune With An Aromatherapy Consult –

Need to know which essential oils and herbs might work for you. This session combines aromatherapy, ayurveda, and energy science to help you approach your body, your situation in a custom way so that it will work for you.

– Be Connected With This Private Meditation Package –

This private session with me is a pre-paid two session practice with text check ins over a agreed upon time.  We will cover the basics like a meditation posture perfect for you, breathing techniques and practice. We can then move forward with skill development and a mantra.  As Always Intuition is heightened during meditation. Prepare for deep and meaningful awareness, skills to help you find the meditation practice that is right for your temperament.

Ayurveda, Sanskrit for the “science of life”, is India’s 5,000 year old medical system. It is commonly referred to as Yoga’s sister science, as both are rooted in the ancient Vedic tradition. Yoga teaches us how to balance our mind, while Ayurveda teaches us how to balance our body through the use of food, herbs, and living in harmony with nature. The latter is most important during times of seasonal transition when we must modify our diet, lifestyle, and even our Yoga practice to adapt to the changes happening around us. In this 2-hour workshop, we will review the foundations of Ayurveda and the tri-dosha approach. We will then focus on diet and lifestyle routines specific for the spring (Kapha) season. The workshop will end with a Yoga, pranayama, and meditation practice specific for the season. Handouts of class material will be provided. Prior understanding of Ayurveda is preferred but not necessary.

Tibetan Therapeutic Massage (Kunye)

Tibetan Therapeutic Massage, Kunye, is a deep, relaxing, and therapeutic massage. It is beneficial for reduction of stress, and increased circulation of blood, nerve, lymph, and Loong (wind) channels. It also helps to tone the limbs, reduce body weight, reduce pain in the spine, joints, and muscles, and rejuvenate the body’s vital energy. The massage techniques used in Kunye are performed while applying oils and creams, The massage consists of long smooth strokes, a variety of circular motions, and pressure on the sensitive points. Within the Tibetan medical system, there are 320 sensitive points used for therapeutic effect. These points may have direct effects on the body location itself, or may affect organ systems similar to Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, although they are not named in the same meridian method as the TCM points.

Cupping Therapy (Zang Bum)

Cupping therapy is the practice of collecting and clearing a stagnation of the humors, or vital energies of the body. In traditional Tibetan Medicine, disease arises when there is a blockage of a channel, or a humor enters the wrong channel or opposite region of the body.

Moxibustion Therapy (Me ‘Tsa)

Moxibustion therapy is the heating or warming of a sensitive point with the Tawa herb (Artemesia vulgaris). In Tibetan medicine it is mainly used to balance Loong (wind) and Beycan (phlegm). The process stimulates a sensitive point where the heat is applied, which promotes the free flowing circulation of wind and the drying of phlegm. It is used to relieve many disorders, such as stress, insomnia, joint pain and stiffness, and deficiency of digestive heat. Points of the joints can be heated with a type of wood called seng deng (Rhamnella gilgitea). This wood is particularly effective in drying lymphatic fluid.

Hot fomentation can also be performed with the use of warm salts, or warm mud, clay, or stone. Cold fomentation is usually done with cool river stones.
