ENERGY THERAPIES (REIKI, IET, THERAPEUTIC TOUCH)

Safely release energy blockages to harmonize body, mind, and spirit

Reiki has been around for over 2,500 yrs. as a relaxing energy method of healing through movement of life force energy (Chi). Therapeutic Touch (TT) has been used in many hospitals and as a complimentary therapy to western medicine. Both TT and Reiki have been proven to balance and promote the flow of energy, aid in deep relaxation, reduction of pain, nausea, and tension, better sleep, lower blood pressure & heart rate, improved wound healing and easing the transition into dying.  Integrated Energy Therapy is a hands-on healing therapy system which is a safe and gentle way of releasing energy blockages that can cause imbalance and disease in the body. IET promotes healing in all areas of our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual selves.

Over the years, Sandra has had many opportunities to share her hands and her heart with the elderly, sick and those in the final stages of life. 


 I consider Reiki and all energy therapy to be prayer, focused intent with another person for their energetic improvement.  I utilize many different "tools" in my energy work; such as Reiki, IET, Therapeutic touch, crystals, hand placements, scents, sounds, Tibetan or crystal singing bowls, Tuning fork therapy, vibrational toning, and therapeutic art, but ultimately it is all about intention, prayer, holding space for someone to surrender to healing. I believe in hands-on-healing but don't refer to myself as a "healer".  I believe we heal ourselves. I help people who are ready to help themselves.  Everyone will experience something different in their interpretation of any energy work, but I truly believe that anything which helps you to slow down, quiet your mind and focus on your breathing will take you deeper into yourself, where true healing occurs.  The effectiveness of energy work really depends on the client's willingness to quiet down and receive the messages that their body is offering, it is about surrendering and feeling what is. I'm not looking to prove anything to you. Basically, all of the services i offer are just different versions of energy work and prayer. It is all intentional.

About Sandra

At this point in my career, I tend to think of myself as an energy worker who has been studying Massage Therapy for the last 20 years. Basically, all of the services I offer are just different versions of energy work and prayer. It is all intentional. My journey into massage has taken me to premier vacation destinations at luxurious spas in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.  I have had private practices in my Michigan home town and locally in the area since 2011. In December 2018, I joined forces with Dr. Robin Roarke, Acupuncture Physician, and we opened our doors at Holistic Healing Arts. We are dedicated to empowering the balance of body, mind, and spirit through the services and workshops we offer. 

The majority of my current clients have remained with me for years, and I'm blessed that they benefit from the work that I do. I believe whole-heartedly that the emotional and physical traumas we encounter show up in our bodies.   I receive massage every two weeks.  I believe this is a responsibility of any good massage therapist, and an important element in my ability to help others to release their energetic debris.  I am not here to heal my clients, but rather to empower them to heal themselves.  I approach each client, and every massage with a holistic philosophy.  I have learned that through incorporating my own unique elements into each massage, sharing authentically, I am able to give more fully, and my clients are able to release their tension more easily.  This, to me, feels like it makes a tremendous difference in how long it takes for my clients to settle down and let go.  Allowing yourself to find silence and rest is essential to being receptive to any body or energy work.   Sound and energy work are a regular part of my massage sessions now.  It is my way to clear the air so whatever you need to let go of can be revealed to you. Massage supports the process but there's so much more that is happening. Be open minded.  I offer suggestions for stretches, activities, and alternative therapies which might help alleviate pain and discomfort in certain areas of the body, if you utilize them.  Each massage artist is unique, and it's important to recognize that not every client is necessarily a good fit for every massage therapist.  If you find it difficult to get quiet and tune into yourself, of if you are accustomed to directing each massage you receive, asking constantly for deeper work, then perhaps my bodywork is not for you. 

When I say that I work intuitively, I mean it. I get quiet and listen to your body as I work. If you talk too much, if you don't speak up when the pressure is too intense, you aren't relaxing and receiving the work.  I respond accordingly, using more or less pressure, depending on how the muscles relax and allow the work.  Some of the most subtle pressure can allow the greatest releases. Often people are under the impression that deeper pressure means a better massage.  The truth is, your body cannot relax if it is in defense mode.  I will only use as much pressure as your tissues will allow.   I am dedicated to the work that I do, however, I will not hurt myself so that I can help you. That being said, I would be honored to help you feel better.
