Women only massage
"My aim is to create a safe and peaceful space where the nervous system can unwind, physical tensions can be released, the heart can open and the soul remembers home. I wish to help people to reconnect with themselves, to feel whole, to feel at home in their body."
My name is Melanie. I grew up in France and now I live and work on the stolen land of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, in Vancouver, West Coast of Canada.
I am a massage practitioner, energy healer, and ceremonialist. I am devoted to helping others to reclaim their sovereign bodies: physical, emotional, and energetic.
My aim is to create a safe and peaceful space where the nervous system can unwind, physical tensions can be released, the heart can open, and the soul remembers its home. I help people reconnect to themselves, feel whole, and at home in their bodies.
For over 14 years I have had the honor of serving highly-sensitive, empathic spiritual seekers through my passions for massage and energy medicine.
As a survivor of sexual and emotional trauma, I know how important it is for women to feel truly safe. It is from a trauma-informed place that I now specialize in holding sacred space for women of all ages and backgrounds. My aim is to help them remember who they came here to be and how divine and empowering it feels to come home to their natural body, both innocent and wild.
My satisfied clients include babies, children, teens, pregnant mothers, and women of all ages and stages.
I specialize in relaxation massage for therapists, healers, and care takers that are looking for a sacred space to fully surrender and be held with skill, sensitivity, and care.
People that have experience with microdosing plant medicine come to me for massage and to explore how conscious touch and energy healing can deepen and enhance their therapeutic healing experience. I do not provide the medicine.
I also offer sessions to help people prepare and integrate a plant medicine ceremony.
Grounding energy to our mother earth is one of my gifts. I can help you center and come back fully into your body after a ceremony.
I offer relaxation massage and use mindful presence, energy healing and body-reading skills during my sessions. I listen with my hands, allowing my intuition to guide my massage.
My intention is to create a deeply connected, nurturing experience where muscular tension is released, and the nervous system is soothed.
My personal journey into bodywork has been profoundly healing and enlightening, and I am inspired as ever to explore how bodywork deepens our connection to our body, soul, and spirit. I am a passionate about self care and maintain my own practices in meditation, energy healing, Qi Gong and conscious dance.
I am committed to a lifelong journey of doing the work necessary and using my place of privilege to support a world that is safer, gentler, and more loving.
