Philosophy and Approach
I believe in creating a partnership by educating, empowering, and engaging you on a journey of wellness, whether you come to me once in a while, once a month, or once a week. As a Certified CranioSacral Therapist, I am trained to listen to what your body is saying and needing in that session. Instead of just chasing your pain symptoms or addressing your muscle tension, I am looking for and treating the underlying causes. These causes whether physical and/or emotional, are creating the body's energetic holding patterns and pain/stress symptoms. My private sessions whether CranoiSacral Therapy, Massage or an integration of both, are tailored to what you need to revitalize and harmonize your mind, body, and spirit.
