Feel better. Live better.
I combine the techniques that will work for you in your situation. Know-how grows with training and experience. In practice since 1985, I have over 4300 hours training. Committed to lifelong learning? Absolutely!
In my approach to bodywork and
wholistic health, I use techniques and self-help therapies
that effectively release tension, promote balance and
stimulate your bodymind's innate healing abilities so that
change and well-being come from within you. Your overall
health and sense of self are positively affected, enabling
you to respond more freely to the physical, mental and
emotional challenges in your life.
People sometimes feel they need to decide which therapies they need. This is unnecessary and difficult, if not impossible, to do from the perspective of the client. Each healing system has its own methods of finding where and how to work. The principles and methodologies are wholly compatible and are seamlessly woven together in a session. Your feedback is encouraged and can assist in fine-tuning the session for your greatest benefit.
Well-being comes from within.
the benefits people commonly experience include:
- Relief from pain -- acute and chronic pain -- anywhere in your body.
- Improved function.
- Increased flexibility, ease in movement and range of
- Faster recovery from injury, illness and stress
- A greater sense of well-being, calm, energy flow and
- A better understanding of how you use your body and
how your emotions, attitudes and beliefs relate to your tension
patterns--the bodymind connection.
- A lighter feeling. A more calm and clear-minded feeling.
- Much more.

Wholistic Health encompasses the
physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of life. All are interrelated and, as science has proven, co-exist in
every cell in our bodies. How we think, feel, behave and our
subconscious beliefs directly affect our health, our
overall well-being and how we live.
Here are desciptions of some of the bodywork and wholistic
healing systems that clients have found so helpful:
Ortho-Bionomy® is a
comprehensive system of natural healing that stimulates the body's innate
healing abilities. Gentle touch, movement and positions of
comfort initiate the release of tension, allowing the body to
let go from within, activate internal healing and restore
balance, from the inside-out. More than alleviate symptoms, this resolves the underlying cause of pain associated with structural imbalance and soft tissue tension, it addresses a remarkable number of debilitating physical and emotional tensions and it is a safe and effective way to ease stress, promote relaxation and restore balance and natural alignment.
More. . . what is a session like?
CranioSacral Therapy helps detect
and correct imbalances in the CranioSacral System. Like Ortho-Bionomy, it works
with the body's self-correcting mechanisms. Subtle touch and
pressure are used to help release tension and restrictive
holding patterns from within, initiating self-healing. When
the CranioSacral system is normalized, far-reaching and
seemingly unrelated beneficial effects occur throughout the
entire body. "It is
very helpful for brain dysfunction, chronic pain problems,
and a wide variety of headache and facial pain problems
(including TMJ symptoms)."
More. . .what conditions does it alleviate?
Release is a therapeutic process which
helps rid your mind and body of the residual effects of past
injuries and "negative" experiences. Research shows that it
is often unexpressed or unresolved feelings that hold in a
confused and disorganized energy as well as physical tension. The body functions by
detouring around the "energy cyst." As the years pass, the
extra energy required for function takes its toll. Symptoms
and dysfunctions begin to appear which become more and more
difficult to ignore. The release of the "energy cyst" often
includes a remembering of these feelings. The practitioner
guides you to discover and express the stored feelings or
images and convert them to constructive, creative energy.
People are often amazed by their discoveries and the healing
power of self-revelation.
Sound, Color & Vibration Energy
Flow helps clear blockages in the radiant centers
(known as chakras in the Eastern tradition) and increase
energy flow and alignment throughout your body and energy
fields. This energy flow is identified as kundalini (in the
Easern tradition), or soul energy. As the soul energy moves
through your central nervous system, it activates the
radiant centers. Blockages can result in discomfort, pain
and confusion; symptoms may include back pain, heart, throat
or head problems. Sound and color move through the nervous
system as a gentle vibration, physically shaking loose
toxins and tension and synchronizing cell movement.
Researchers have demonstrated how light, color, sound and
music re-create this positive flow of cell activity. Sound,
Color and Vibration is a very gentle and powerful system
with many applications for health, personal growth and soul
Massage Therapy has been
recognized and used as a healing art from the earliest of
times. Our instinctive response to injury or pain is to
touch the area. Documentation of specific massage techniques
dates back to ancient Asian and Egyptian cultures. Today
massage combines the ancient art of touch with the modern
science of body biomechanics to nurture and relax while
promoting optimal muscle tone, circulation and body
function. Massage is often combined with other modalities to get better, more long-lasting results without causing you further pain.
Myofascial Therapy releases tension and rigidity in the fascia, which surrounds every muscles on a cellular level, relieving tension deeply throughout the system.
Acupressure is the
application of pressure along channels of energy associated
with vital organ functioning. The pressure helps to disperse
tension, increase circulation and energy flow and stimulate
the body's own healing powers toward balance and health. In
traditional Chinese medicine, physical, mental and emotional
well-being are known to result from an open and balanced
flow of energy (chi, qui or ki) through these channels.
Massage, acupuncture and other complementary body therapies
are all a part of Chinese Medicine.
Hypnotherapy has recently
become more widely used as a method for alleviating a
variety of medical conditions as well as for facilitating
physical, emotional, mental and behavioral changes. All hynosis is
self-hypnosis. The Hypnotherapist is a facilitator, first to
achieve an advanced state of relaxation, then to access your
inner resources to determine the cause of a situation or recurring pattern,
ascertain the healing needed and facilitate the healing
process. All healing is self-healing. Hypnotherapy is perhaps the best way to find your
own true solutions to life challenges as they arise, whether
about relationships, physical healing, emotional healing,
finding creative solutions, achieving career goals or releasing self-limiting
beliefs and behaviors.
