Massage & Energy Healing
"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."
A Bit About Me
I am a massage practitioner, energy healer, dance teacher and ceremonialist. I am devoted to helping others to reclaim their sovereign bodies: physical, emotional, and energetic. For over 15 years I have had the honor of serving highly-sensitive, empathic spiritual seekers through my passions for massage and energy medicine.
As a trauma survivor myself, I know how important it is for folks to feel truly safe. It is from a trauma-informed place that I now specialize in holding sacred space for people 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, folks 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.
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.
I give thanks to the K’omoks Nation and the Pentlatch people on whose land I live, dance, pray and play in gratitude to the forest, rivers, mountains, ocean and all of creation who nourish this land. Thank You.
