Massage Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy
I offer Structural Integration, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Massage and Reiki. My work serves clients that are seeking transformation, nervous system balancing and greater function of the digestive and reproductive systems. I have a gift for deeply listening and responding to the body’s cues. I help clients to access their body’s innermost awareness, beyond the conscious mind, where profound restoration and healing can occur.
I have a passion for and have been involved in the Healing Arts since 1989. Early childhood trauma set me on a path wrought with pain, digestive discomfort, anxiety and self-loathing. Through various modalities over the years, I have steadily gained ground in righting my relationship to myself. Now, feeling good in my body and emotionally stable is the rule rather than the exception! I have many gifted therapists to thank for shepherding me through this ever changing and deepening work of art that has become my life. I would be honoured should you invite me to be one of yours.
