Emotional Freedom Techniques (Introductory series: 1x 90 minute and 2x 60 minute sessions for $308. Follow up sessions are $95/60 minutes)
Are you experiencing high levels of emotional stress? When you think about a situation from the past, do you feel anger, grief, or sadness? Are you concerned about the future and find your mind wandering to the “what ifs”? If so, this technique is for you.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (a.k.a. tapping) is a group of techniques scientifically-proven to help neutralize emotions and decrease stress hormones in the body by tapping on specific acupressure points while focusing on your personal situations. It creates a sense of calm so you can approach situations with clarity, confidence, and personal choice. Once you learn this tool, you can also do your own work in everyday situations if you choose, empowering yourself to move through turmoil and emotional upheaval and embrace happiness and grounded presence.
Homeopathic Intake ($300/90-120 minutes)
The mind and body are interconnected in ways that sometimes we don’t even understand. You and I will explore what is happening physically, mentally, emotionally, and the impact it is making currently on your life. What we want to do is understand how the mind and body are patterning NOW. Then I use a variety of techniques along with homeopathic remedies to help the body and mind shift where it is stuck so it can heal.
Homeopathy is practiced in many areas around the world, and has over 200 years of history helping people-both in conjunction with traditional medicinal practices (which I do not do) and on its own. Homeopathic remedies allow the veil of dis-ease to be lifted from you so you true self can come forward in all forms.
I recommend at least 5 follow-ups after the initial intake, spaced no more than 4 weeks apart, depending on your circumstance and commitment to your own healing process.
Homeopathic Follow Up ($125/50-60 minutes)
In these sessions we evaluate the action of the remedies, work with beliefs or strong emotions that are still stuck, and plan the next course of action. Follow ups can be done weekly to keep your process moving in a strong forward direction. We may use EFT, Bach flower essences, PSYCH-K®, or other tools to support the current action of your remedy.
Health & Healing Strategy Session ($0/20-30 minutes)
Life can be stressful at times physically, mentally, and emotionally. During this session we talk briefly about what you are looking to achieve, and see if the services I offer are a good fit for you. If so, we set a few targets/goals to measure your healing progress and to make sure we stay on track.
I have over 20 years of experience working in the healing profession, and use tools such as homeopathy, Bach flower essences, Emotional Freedom Techniques (tapping), and subconscious belief work through PSYCH-K® to help you get unstuck and reclaim health and happiness. In this session we will talk in-depth about what your concerns are, and explore what tools and resources will be beneficial for you to help you move forward in life!
Deep Tissue Massage ($145/60 minutes, $215/90 minutes)
CranioSacral Therapy ($125/60 minutes, $165/90 minutes)
This light yet powerful work helps release restrictions in the soft tissues of the brain and spinal cord, as well as the related tissues. It also works with emotions and memories patterned into the body and nervous system, and helps them gently release.
I often use tools such as dialoguing work to help you access the deeper knowledge of the body so you can find clarity and heal. I was trained through the Upledger Institute, and have found this work to help people recover from a variety of discomforts, including muscular restrictions, feelings of being “stuck” or “tight” in the body, as well as emotional stress. There are currently studies being done on the effectiveness of helping recovery from a variety of injuries.

Visceral Manipulation ($125/60 minutes, $165/90 minutes)
The quality of your organ movement influences how the rest of your body moves and feels.
Organs can get stuck together and restricted the same way that muscles can get knotted up and tight! I begin the session by listening closely to where the body is wrapping itself around physical or emotional restrictions in the abdomen and pelvis. I then use a series of gentle techniques to release the stuck areas and help return the organs to balance and function. Often people experience relief of symptoms that they thought were related to muscles, their back, or an undiagnosed disease.
This gentle yet powerful hands-on approach involves working with the client’s body in many different positions, including seated, sidelying, and face-up on the massage table. I strongly recommend wearing comfortable shorts or pants that can be pulled down to the pubic bone, as well as a sports bra or something similar for women.
HERE you can find an overview on visceral work, as well as the Ricky Williams Concussion Program, and how they are measuring physical and emotional changes in formerly concussed athletes using a combination of CST & Visceral on sports athletes.
Multi-Modal Bodywork ($125/60 minutes, $165/90 minutes)
This type of “massage” uses the most intuition and follows your body’s internal signals the most closely. It combines all of my knowledge, training, and skills I have been gaining since my first alternative medicine class in 1995. We allow the body to guide the session.
If you are not attaining the progress you seek from traditional massage therapy, there may be more at work than you realize: emotions and cellular memory can create restrictions and discomfort in your organs and muscle tissues. The work I do on the massage table goes far beyond traditional Swedish massage. We start with you standing and listen at the top of your head to feel where the body is holding onto stress. I then use a combination of techniques that are designed to release adhesions, restrictions, or points of stress throughout your body so they can come back to balance. I use a variety of techniques, allowing me to be very flexible with pressure while adapting to your requests, which allows me to customize each session specifically. I find the most powerful sessions for clients are usually ones in which we let the body determine what kind of work it needs that day.
