About Me.

As a  Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and Certified Biofeedback Specialist (CBS), I apply  the nuances of this art to my practice. With a nurturing, healing touch, I approach my clients holistically…mind, body and soul.

As a student of life, I seek knowledge through travel, cultural involvement and continuing education.

I have acquired over 1,500 hours of certified education and have become  skilled in many therapeutic modalities. I also subscribe to publications, webinars and e-magazines as well as attend seminars and workshops on many related subjects.  There is always more to learn. As a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP), I continue to promote the healthful benefits of massage and the personal responsibility of well-being.  Working with the Quantum Biofeedback system, certified through the National Therapies Certification Board (NTCB), I work with people and animals to bring health and vitality by supporting the immune system and detoxing the bodies – physical, mental, spiritual, emotional.

 

About My Services.

My therapy services focus on emotional, physical and spiritual perspectives for better health and well-being.

As a massage therapist, I have received training in the basic Swedish style of touch and integrate the other modalities as your body needs.  Neuromuscular re-education as taught by Earl Timberlake can help heal injuries and release old trauma patterns to return the body to full function.  Manual Lymphatic Drainage is gentle, nurturing and encourages the body to detox.  I use it with almost all massage clients to eliminate any edema and assist in the deep tissue work.  The energetic modalities such as Reiki can be practiced alone, yet they too are a part of the integrative style as I work.

The Quantum Biofeedback systems have come into my practice in the past few years, and are taking more of the available appointments.  I continue to be amazed by the results of this seemingly passive work with the INDIGO.  Although I may know intellectually what is possible, it is always a little surprise to see it happen.  As the client, you just lie on the massage table with straps at the wrists, ankle and forehead while I run the software program on the computer.  After a relaxing nap of about an hour, you get off the table and walk away with a body continuing to make internal changes that started with the session.

The Eternale system is like the mini INDIGO; it is just the anti-aging programs bundled and available for de-stressing while stimulating the revitalization of your cells.  I have clients who come a couple of times per week, have a nap during their lunch hour and yet have worked on health issues and making their body more vital.

 

About My Products.

As you look at the products available here, they may seem incongruous.  The Scentered line of essential oil blends and body products developed from my personal use in the massage practice.  If a client had a particular issue – mind, body or spirit, and asked what I would recommend; I would go back to my quiet space and work on it.  I cannot/do not diagnose nor prescribe, yet I can tell you what I would use if it were me.  Check out the dozens of unique blends of pure essential oils, and what they have been known to address or support.  Working with my friend Meg MacFadyen, I (the Scentered line) have also produced Personal Blends.  These are about your true core self, past, present and future.

Learning about the healing properties due to the unique frequencies in the essential oils, I began to look at the rocks I have collected my whole life.  Amethyst, Selenite, Jasper, Rubies, Sapphires:  All stones have unique healing properties and can be infused with additional frequencies.  I don’t carry them all but I have a friend who can usually find most anything I ask for.  Look for them to be available on line in the future, available now at the office.

Having always loved stones and anything that sparkles means I love to “play” in jewelry.  Look, try it on, touch it, talk to it. A life long friend travels to Nashville each month to buy and sell gold, silver and precious stones and jewelry.  When offered the chance to sort through, appreciate and purchase some of these items, I suddenly found myself in the jewelry business. Check out the gently used jewelry at the office and in the online store.
