Who are my clients?
I meet more and more people looking to "alternative" healing modalities for answers, because they are not getting the support they need from conventional Western (or allopathic) medicine for their issues.
People who have issues like:
lowered ability to handle stress
lowered immune function
repetitive tension patterns
depression and anxiety
Several of my clients are people who have not had good results from traditional healthcare. They have experienced physical trauma such as car accidents or surgery and never really recovered. I also work with clients who have experienced/are currently experiencing emotional trauma, anxiety or depression.
Trauma can be anything that feels unresolved in your body or mind.
Whether it's physical or emotional trauma, I help my clients find resolution, through unwinding the physical body, fascia, and nervous system, and through emotional and energetic awareness.
My approach is rational as well as intuitive. I integrate scientific and energetic principles to listen deeply to the tissue and the body systems. By working with the anatomy and physiology of the body, as well as the subtle energies in the body and electromagnetic field, my clients recover unimpeded from injury or disease.

INTEGRATIVE CRANIOSACRAL & POLARITY PRACTITIONER
For 8 years, I suffered from chronic pain after being rear-ended while driving my scooter. After a year passed with little improvement, the doctors couldn't find anything "wrong" with me (i.e nothing was broken), so they diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. The prescriptions I tried didn't really help without completely knocking me out, so I became desperate to find a cure, even though they told me there was no such thing.
My priority in life became health and wellness, and I researched and experimented with a lot of different doctors, therapies, nutritional protocols, types of exercise, and drastic lifestyle changes to see if anything could make me feel better. After years passed without significant changes, I felt completely helpless and terrified that I was going to live the rest of my life suffering from constant pain. Eventually my path led me to start receiving, and then studying Craniosacral and Polarity Therapy, and that's when I I stopped having chronic pain entirely.
My priority is to empower my clients to explore and discover what works for them, be present and supportive, and create a safe, non-judgmental space for them to process, so they can be expressed as their optimal selves, moving freely through their lives without emotional and physical tensions to hold them back.
I discovered my life's passion in studying health and personal development, and it has become my mission to research and integrate diverse therapeutic perspectives to find real answers to the questions we have about how our bodies and minds really work. I believe that we can overcome trauma and pain to live more expansive lives. In my opinion, holistic health is about understanding that medicine can come in all different forms. It is about each individual finding the medicine that works for them, whether it is allopathic, naturopathic, or shamanic to name just a few. Every body is different. I fully encourage people to explore and discover what works for them.
Your session includes a combination of therapeutic bodywork, energy medicine, and verbal processing or counseling to unwind and release both physical tension in the fascia and tissue at a physical structural level, as well as the underlying energetic level that may be contributing to the issue. By addressing the energetic body as well as the physical body, the body can release the trauma fully in order to restore and recover.
Using a combination of modalities: Craniosacral Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Tuning Forks, and Aromatherapy, the session is customized to meet you where you are and address your project. The priority is to resource your system and facilitate your innate healing process.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle touch therapy that is used to balance the craniosacral system: the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, from the cranium down to the sacrum and coccyx (tailbone). CST is helpful in releasing restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the sensory, motor, and nervous systems as well as the fascia throughout the body.
Craniosacral Therapy is non-invasive, and uses deep listening and palpation skills to unwind the connective tissues throughout the body, where the cellular memory resides. Because it is such a gentle treatment, it is useful for people of all ages, from babies and children to the elderly. CST is useful in addressing issues such as:
INJURIES - HEADACHES & MIGRAINES - TMJ - PTSD - STRESS - CHILDHOOD DISORDERS - CHRONIC PAIN

Polarity Therapy was founded by Dr. Randolph Stone, an osteopath, chiropractor, and naturopath. It is a synthesis of Eastern and Western medicine, culminating from healing modalities such as: reflexology, acupressure, craniosacral balancing, yoga, qi gong, and Ayurveda. Dr. Stone distilled the essential principles of healing into a comprehensive and clear approach to holistic wellness. His goal was to find a unified healing principle underlying the many different healing practices.
He taught that the human energy field is affected by diet, movement, conscious and subconscious beliefs, relationships, life experiences, trauma and environmental factors. Polarity sessions balance these issues through bodywork, verbal counseling, self awareness, nutrition, and Polarity yoga exercises.

Tuning forks resonate pure frequencies that can affect our bodies at an electromagnetic level. Modern science supports how sound affects matter, and there are many pioneering sound healers such as Dr. John Beaulieu and Eileen McKusick who have studied and documented the effects of sound on the body and electromagnetic field.
Tuning forks, due to their resonant nature, can help clear tension in the body as well as the electromagnetic field, and are a perfect compliment to other healing modalities. Sound is a non-invasive, effective method of speeding healing, and shifting the underlying tension pattern.
Essential oils are the life blood of a plant, and a powerful connection to nature. Therapeutic grade essential oils contain hundreds of complex chemical compounds that work synergistically to directly affect the limbic system- which is strongly tied to emotion and memory- through the olfactory bulb, the only exposed part of the brain. Increasing numbers of research and studies show the physical, emotional, and spiritual health benefits of essential oils.
Essential oils, like tuning forks, are a perfect compliment to other healing modalities. They support the mind, body, and spirit to release unwanted patterns and increase wellness.
I think the most transformative part of this was just being able to vocalize everything and pinpoint what my issues are and how they're manifesting in my body.
Knowing that makes me feel like I have more power over them and I think having tools like, knowing I can lay on the bed and scream or use aromatherapy to calm my nerves are super helpful.
