deep relaxation, lymphatic drainage, support in returning to homeostasis, alignment, intuitive healing, tension and muscular release
every session is an opportunity for my client and me to listen deeply and respond. each session is a collaboration. is nourishment needed? more movement and stimulation? release? the more awareness a client can bring to our sessions together, the more can shift in the physical and emotional planes.
ultimately my hope is that through our work together you will have the opportunity to connect to your inner well of healing energy as well as to your own inner guidance and have the ability to move through life from this resourced and informed place. this in turn fuels your connection to the greater web of life outside of yourself in the way you deeply desire.
what i offer is unconditional loving presence for you to come as you are and simply be. i provide deep, nourishing and caring touch.
bodywork: between 2-3 hrs
we start each session with a check-in on your emotional and physical body to understand what is going on in the present moment. you set an intention for the practice as a foundation for what is holding the session and your healing moving forward. this information informs the structure of the time on the table.
i utilize tools such as:
- lymphatic drainage techniques

- chinese cups
- Arvigo techniques of maya abdominal therapies

netra basti treatment: 1 hr
netra basti is a traditional ayurvedic treatment for the eyes. dough dams are applied around one eye at a time and either warm ghee (clarified butter) or castor oil is placed inside the dam. the client then opens the eyes, closes them, and then i proceed to massage around the eyes. this treatment can break down old built up tension, mucous, move debris, lubricate the eyes and clarify vision. other benefits of netra basti include:
- reduces tension and migraine headaches
- soothes dry, itchy, eyes
