Transform Your Life.

My Energy in Essence programs are based on 20+ years of helping clients to overcome physical pain and emotional challenges, heal core wounds, leave behind what is no longer essential, and live your life better.

I’ve been working with people who struggle with anxiety, chronic tension, insomnia and injury / surgery recovery.  It’s a joy for me to help clients create both internal (body, mind, soul), and external (home / work spaces) sanctuaries for experiencing deep sustained relaxation, rejuvenation and satisfying sleep.  As someone who has struggled with insomnia and associated anxiety, I’ve known firsthand the power of time-tested and functional health practices.  It’s a particular treat to create a custom program for every individual which attunes to their specific physiological needs. The end result is the capacity to either eliminate or successfully navigate daily stressors, experience deeper slumber, and transform their lives.

I am a certified Perfect Health Instructor and Certified Massage Therapist, holding a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Design, Doctoral level certifications in sacred and soulful practices, along with Master level programs in corporate talent arenas. 

I enjoy daily pure love infusions, hiking the trails along California’s central coast with my furr-baby, a MinChi named Nika, and exploring the Pacific Northwest, nourishing with locally grown organic produce, handcrafts, and creating a blessed life.

Aromatherapy

Bodywork using natural plant extracts, such as essential oils, cremes, and carrier oils, to promote and harmonize emotional, physical and spiritual health. Aromatherapy is an art and a science, combining knowledge of the scientific aspects of the plants and oils with the art of producing a beneficial blend to be applied topically or via inhalation. For health and hygiene reasons, and to promote deep healing mineral infusion beneath the epithelial layer, please arrive freshly showered.

Bodywork

Swedish (Classic) protocol, varying from light to vigorous, with general or specific focus on pain areas, employing five basic strokes: effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber or with the fibers) and vibration/shaking. Can reduce chronic pain, fatigue, joint stiffness, and improve function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. May also include Reflexology. For health and hygiene reasons, and to promote deep healing mineral infusion beneath the epithelial layer, please arrive freshly showered.

Canine Massage

A form of alternative therapy, Canine Massage may include relaxation, increased oxygenation, relief from pain, improved joint flexibility, as well as miscellaneous benefits to the immune system. It uses touch to maintain or improve both physical and emotional well-being. Techniques may include Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Positional Release, Reflexology, various Osteopathic techniques, or Acupressure, to name a few.

For hygienic reasons, their comfort, and to promote deep healing infusion of any minerals used in your pet’s treatment, please bring your pet with no contagious issues, having been pottied, freshly brushed and with clean paws.

Carpal Tunnel Therapy

Addresses inflammation, pain and numbness by softening and lengthening the muscles and fascia of the neck, shoulder, upper arm, elbow, lower arm, wrist and hand. May include work with the pectoral and subscapularis muscles to release the medial rotation of the shoulder.

Energy Clearing ~ with Bodywork or Frequency Upgrade

Energy Clearing protocols may include Reiki, blessings, alignment work, to name a few.  Bodywork is Swedish in nature and can address minor trigger points.  Frequency upgrades include activating purity, revealing the individual’s source connection power.   For health and hygiene reasons, to both promote deep healing mineral infusion beneath the epithelial layer and begin your energetic clearing process, please arrive freshly showered.

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a beautiful, slow touch protocol applying medium to light pressure, moving to specific points on the body in a rhythmic sequence.  This session effectively connects you to your Inner Calm.  For health and hygiene reasons, and to promote deep healing mineral infusion beneath the epithelial layer, please arrive freshly showered.  (Session is also successful with client fully clothed.)
