Mo Washburn is one of the most talented healers that I know. It is clear that she was born to do this work, and the way that she transmits healing and wellness through her hands, her words, and her all around great energy, is a blessing for anyone who gets to receive a treatment from her. She is someone who you can trust to hold you tenderly and strongly in whatever you are facing from body aches to disease to emotional needs. Mo is a great combination of heart, mind, and hands, combining the knowledge she has gained from many traditions, with an innate healing instinct. Treatments with Mo are a space out of time where you can let go on every level, body, mind and spirit, and descend into the beauty of being truly cared for.
I had the great pleasure to work with Mo recently. A friend of mine had highly recommended her and I was in great need after suffering the death of my father followed 8 months later with the suicide of my husband among other challenges. My physical body fell apart. While I followed a healthy lifestyle I knew I needed some shamanistic healing as well as just allowing myself to be cared for. For three blissful days Mo cooked exquisitely healthful food for me, right for my constitution and delicious! Her hands on body work is the best I’ve experienced and powerfully effective on moving stuck energy. I found her depth of knowledge in healing with ancient wisdom traditions amazing and more importantly she used her connection with intuition to guide her. Mo is a lovely person to be around which made the long healing days fly by! She’s extremely generous and genuine with her work! I look forward to treating myself again to her gift of healing!
Words matter tremendously to me and I actually can’t say enough of them to describe Mo’s work. Yes: skill. Yes: study. Yes: experience. And. AND: deep patience. Deep kindness. Deep listening. Deep care. THESE are the things which magic the body and heart into spaciousness and true change. And Mo offers them, heart and hands, every time I’m on the table. I trust her with my own body and heart and would send anyone with any condition to her with that same trust. If you’re reading this, you’re about to be one of the lucky ones.
I’ve been getting body work in some form or another since I was 9 when my parents took me to get acupuncture. Fast forward 20 years, and it has become a big part of my self-care. I’ve seen a lot of different specialists and had a lot of different treatments. Since moving to Sebastopol, Mo has quickly become my favorite body worker in the Bay Area. Every time I see Mo is different, but the one thing I can count on is her ability to tune into what my body really needs. Her intuition and wisdom of the healing arts make her the perfect practitioner for me. I love it! She never applies a cookie cutter approach to my body. Her treatments are as relaxing as a traditional massage with the energetic clearing elements of an acupuncture treatment. Every time I walk out of her office I feel lighter physically, energetically, emotionally, and psychologically. She truly is one of the best holistic body workers I know. I’d recommend her to anyone!
Mo has a remarkable capacity to deeply nurture my body with her presence, her touch and her questions. I have gone to places on her table that I never thought I could go because I trust her ability to take good care of whatever we encounter. Her softness helps me to soften and her strength invites me to fall, knowing she will catch me. Thank you, dear Mo, for sharing yourself with me and so many others in these ways.
Mo is an exceptional, thoughtful and caring practitioner. She a brings a holistic view and is always expanding her knowledge. She seems to have countless tools to support my health and healing. I have been seeing her for years and will continue to see her for years to come.
Mo has intuitive hands and a generous heart, her body work sessions are deeply relaxing and nourishing. She brings forth a well-balanced integration of different modalities that leaves you feeling like you got worked on multiple levels. I highly recommend Mo’s sessions for anyone needing a body reconnection, a place to go where your whole being can feel deeply held for a moment in time.
Mo has a wonderfully gentle touch and yet is also really able to dig in when she finds an area of stagnation in the body. She is patient with my body and intuitively taps into what it needs in order to release. I’ll never forget the 3 hour session where she worked so patiently on my lower back and eventually all of this old lymph fluid was released. Amazing! I feel very held and supported by Mo and am so grateful to have found her. She is a gifted and soulful practitioner and healer.
Mo is a grounding spirit of light in my life. She is the person I think of and try to channel when I am not at my best, and, without judgement, she makes me and everyone around her feel calm, good and warm. She is truly, truly a very special person, and very unique in the world. Mo and I have shared many years of friendship, becoming closest in more recent years. She was our doula during the birth of our first child. She was someone I wanted in the room during my first birth experience anyway and I knew she wanted to be a part of a birth to learn and grow in her professional interests. She was the perfect birth support system for my husband and me physically and mentally. Her skills and passion for holistic health and body work surpasses many other practitioners that I have experienced, outside of her unique approach (one) because of her years of experience (two) because of her extensive training in various modalities and (three) because of who she is, the soothing energy she projects and her strength in character and as a health practitioner. Just her presence can help one feel at ease, and her work seeks to relax, release and restore.
Mo has the gift of touch and presence. Her genuine caring for your wellbeing is palpable throughout her work. A session with her is the best gift that you could give yourself or a loved one. Thank you mo for sharing your gifts with your community. We are all blessed by your love for life.
Mo is an exquisite practitioner of the body and spirit. I have had many sessions with her over the past 5 years and i always leave i a much better form than i arrived in. She seems to always be in tune with exactly what my physical and emotional states are needing and provides the care and connection required to caress and transform those needs. i cannot recommend her services and abilities highly enough. the is a wonder at what she does.
Mo Washburn has been my primary body worker for six years now because she is a thoroughly intuitive and caring practitioner with strong and thoughtful hands. Mo brings every bit of herself to the session and is especially adept at working out painful areas, slowing the nervous system down and grounding the body in breath and stillness. She has broad experience in various modalities and will always share new information as she acquires it. I have struggled with Lyme disease during my time working with Mo but I live almost pain free because I see her regularly to address any pain or stagnation. I also see her for her therapeutic affect on the nervous system. She works with presence, depth, creativity and respect for my body. No detail is lost on her and I trust her completely.
