What is your "WHY?" for Massage Therapy? Relaxation? Alleviating pain?? Self-care/ maintenance???
Sound medicine offers a unique way to let go of stress; which is a leading factor in all dis-ease. 60-90 minutes of personalized sound, based on your unique energy signature. This helps to balance the Central Nervous System, entrain your brain into a more harmonic frequency, and bring you into a therapeutically relaxed and peaceful state. This can be a deeply beneficial choice for anyone with symptoms of stress, PTSD, anxiety, depression or insomnia.
Fast and effective, Tuning fork therapy balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain, brings your body back to its healthy vibrational state and promotes self-healing.
The drum is a deeply communicative therapeutic sound tool which can be profoundly soothing and entrancing, taking us into a deep state of relaxation and healing. The gentle, rhythmic playing of a drum connects us with the primordial heartbeat of the feminine. It is very effective in calming stress and agitation. It is excellent for clearing and balancing energy.
The auditory stimuli of the gong bath process lead to entrainment, a form of beneficially modified brainwave frequencies. Alpha brainwaves are associated with creativity and feelings of relaxation. In this state, people experience daydreams, associative thinking and an animated imagination. Normally, the theta brainwave state is associated with deep meditation, hypnosis and REM sleep. Very soothing & also stimulating.
Stretches and self care habits from a massage therapy point of view, based on where your body is restricted. Helps extend the results from all other wellness activities. Stretching, use of thera-bands, stability balls, gentle guasha for muscles and face, self- care massage, guided meditations, therapeutic art, self-care sound, mantras and vocalization, Energy balancing (Reiki, TT, IET), movement/dance, flow wand.
Often, it's challenging to find a time or space to slow down and tune in, without interruption or distraction. Reconnect with your sacred self. Using your feelings as your compass, you'll create a unique piece of art that has your emotions and voice all over it. Artistic expression through therapeutic art can offer us so much internal healing. Spending time with color illuminates our feelings and gives our emotional bodies a voice.
The flow wand is a creative way to help improve balance, coordination, joint mobility, and flexibility by dancing. This simple "toy" looks like magic but offers more of a moving meditation when you tune into your body and follow rather than lead. Wands available for use and for sale.

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.
Ultimately, it is intention which creates change. We must make the choice take care of ourselves. Music is medicine. Energy work is prayer. I believe in hands-on-healing but don't refer to myself as a "healer". I hope to empower you to create healing for yourself.
At this point in my career, I tend to think of myself as an energy worker who has been studying Massage Therapy for over 20 years. My journey into massage has taken me to premier vacation destinations at luxurious spas. I have had private practices in the area since 2011. In 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.
I believe in the results I've experienced through Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Sound healing. It is a responsibility of any massage therapist to set a good self-care example.
This is an important element in my ability to help others to release their energetic debris.
The majority of my current clients have remained with me for years, and I'm blessed that they benefit from the work that we do together. I believe whole-heartedly that the emotional and physical traumas we encounter show up in our bodies.
I am not here to heal my clients, but rather to empower them to heal themselves. Sound and energy work are a regular part of my massage sessions. 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.
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.
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.
I would be honored to help you feel better.
