A Holistic Approach to Health and Healing
Massage Therapy • Bodywork • Energy Healing • Family Constellations
My holistic approach reduces pain by treating you as a complex and integrated being. I create a unique healing process using a range of effective massage, bodywork and energy healing techniques to help you feel better. In my healing sessions I work with muscles, bones, joints, fluids, nerves, and energy. I also provide Family Constellations sessions and workshops to explore the impact of multi-generational trauma.
- Amid the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, I have modified my cancellation policy to offer greater flexibility to all my clients. I hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, I understand and request for you to please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule. To further support you, there will be no penalties for cancellations.
- If you are experiencing a fever, cough, or sore throat, please reschedule your appointment for when you are no longer symptomatic. If you have been to a COVID-19-impacted area or have been in close contact with a person infected with COVID-19, I ask that you please reschedule your appointment for 14 days past the date of contact.
- Please note, that all clients are required to wear face coverings when they arrive for their appointments and temperatures will be taken as required by the Illinois Department of Health.

Exploring our natural ability to heal and transform with therapeutic help
- Myofascial Release – bodywork technique that unwinds connective tissues (fascia) that surround muscles, bones and joints, when they become constrictive. Helps to increase communication throughout the body and reduce traumatic responses.
- Reflexology — massage technique that releases physical and energetic stress in organs, glands and tissues; moves us out of stress responses into natural function and reduces acute and chronic pain.
- Ortho-Bionomy® — a powerful bodywork technique that uses specific body positions to provide effective pain relief. This method restores balance to body, mind and spirit by engaging your natural ability to heal spontaneously.
- Trigger Point Therapy — A massage technique that uses direct pressure to release the tender points that are the cause of over 90% of muscle pain. Helps to reduce chronic pain and reduce stress.
- Family Constellations — energy technique that releases imbalances and trauma that are rooted in our family system, frequently going back several generations, often the deeper reasons for disconnection of body, mind and spirit; also done as a stand-alone session.
- Lymph Drainage — bodywork technique that supports the circulation of the lymph system necessary for optimum health and enhances the immune system's function; helps to reduce painful inflammation and is deeply relaxing.
- Energy Techniques — change stuck or traumatized patterns that are held in our energy field. Helps with the coordination of body, mind and spirit; very helpful for releasing stress and restoring balance.
- Mindfulness — guided meditation and/or breathing techniques are a powerful way to reduce stress and increase healing; heals to change the way we perceive and respond to the challenges in our lives.

May you awaken to the mystery of being here...
May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
May you respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path.
May the flame of anger free you from falsity.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
May you be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.
