Therapeutic Massage
- for pain and stress relief, increased mobility, improved circulation, and relaxation.
Through my many years of being a massage therapist, I have developed my own style, which is based on the Swedish technique, but is deep and slow.  I move slowly to give the tissue time to adjust to the pressure, thus I am able to penetrate deeper muscles without causing the discomfort associated with deep tissue massage. I have found that this massage technique has the most therapeutic effects. I have also found that it is most beneficial to receive a session which is 1 1/2 hours long, so that is what I offer. ~ $90

Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a wonderful technique for deep relaxation. It involves using heated smooth volcanic rocks as massage tools on the body. The heat from the stones penetrates the skin down to the muscle tissue where it warms and softens sore and tight muscles. You have to try this at least once! A hot stone massage session is 1 1/4 hours long.~ $80.

Gemstone Therapy
Gem Stone Therapy works with the premise that our health issues are a result of deep trauma from a past experience that has not been resolved and might even be forgotten. Unresolved trauma is held in our energy fields (auras) which are deeply connected to our energy centers (chakras) that reside in the centerline of our physical bodies. If the trauma remains unresolved, eventually, the stress of holding onto it can manifest as illness or physical pain.  Colored gemstones correspond to the colors and vibrational frequencies of the 7 chakras, and clear quartz crystals are amplifiers. In Gemstone Therapy, gemstones are placed on the chakras and surrounded by crystals for the purpose of vibrating the chakras open and revealing the suppressed trauma. Through guided visualization, the recipient will actually witness, through the mind's eye, the event where and when the trauma originated. This work is almost always a cathartic experience which I will support you in processing. It is also, almost always, a life transforming experience. If you are ready for some deep emotional healing, which can lead to physical healing, or want support understanding some aspect of yourself, this is a powerful step to take on your journey toward transformation.  A gemstone therapy session is usually about 1 1/2 hours long. ~ $100.

Chakra Balancing
Chakras are energy centers in key areas along the centerline of the torso. Each of them governs an aspect of who we are, from how we relate to life, others, our partners, ourselves and the spirit world, to how we express our creativity, personal power, love, wisdom and intuition. In a balanced person, the energy in the chakras spins smoothly and clockwise. However, if there is a disturbance, from perhaps a recent emotional upset, trauma or an overload of stress, the relating chakra can quit spinning or spin in an erratic manner. The chakra balancing technique I use involves checking the chakras with a pendulum to see if they are spinning freely. If not, I activate a tuning fork that was designed to open the chakras and send its vibrations through a perfectly clear quartz crystal that amplify its energies. I then circle the tuning fork and crystal above the chakra. This action brings the disrupted chakra back into balance and it resumes spinning. I check all the chakras again with the pendulum to be certain that  they are all in balance.  Chakra balancing is complimentary and can follow your massage session upon request.

Sound Therapy
Sound therapy is another technique for bringing the body, mind and spirit into balance. I play various instruments including Tibetan brass bowls, quartz crystal singing bowls and a Tibetan Seven Metals Lotus gong. The vibrations of these instruments promotes deep relaxation. Sound therapy is complimentary and is added at the end of your massage session upon request. I have recently started working with tuning forks for the purpose of clearing the energy field around the body. This work is effective for clearing trauma, migraine headaches, relieving stress and leaves the recipient with a deep feeling of well-being and peace. I am happy to include a session at the end of your massage, upon request.

Reiki Treatment
Reiki channels the Universal healing energies and is done by the practitioner channeling these energies while laying hands on the receiver. It is gentle, non-invasive and effective. A Reiki treatment can be incorporated into a massage session or can be given by itself. A 50 minute session is $50.

Astrology Reading
An Astrology reading is a powerful tool for self-discovery. It is important to understand and honor who you are. When you were born, the heavenly bodies in our solar system were positioned in the various constellations, as they are seen from our planet, Earth. The energies of the planets and astroids, and their relationships to the constellations, informs who you are. It is empowering to have knowledge and understanding of this. When you understand why you are the way you are, you can more easily make peace with yourself and honor and love yourself. An astrology reading is usually 1 1/2 to 2 hours long.~ $90.
