Shamanic Cranial Sacral Therapy
Beneficial for infants, adolescence, teenagers, & adults in healing physical ailments, emotional and mental imbalances.
Throughout the journey of life, we encounter and endure stress, strains, and trauma that become trapped in our bodies. When our body holds onto the stress, strains, and trauma instead of releasing it, our tissues and fluids are no longer in harmony, thus our core body system becomes compromised. When there is disharmony in the body this will result in dis-ease in our body and symptoms of pain, discomfort, emotional, physical, and behavioral issues will arise.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, no force, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease. CranioSacral Therapy releases restrictions around the brain and spinal cord, thus allowing our body to self-heal and self-correct. There are no side affects from CranioSacral Therapy; the practitioner creates a loving and safe environment for the client to begin their self-healing process.
Restores autonomic nervous system’s flexibility and adaptability
Enhances flow of blood and fluids throughout the body
Improves the internal environment for the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system
Rejuvenate the mind. Balance the body. A Raindrop session is a non-invasive, revolutionary way for helping restore harmony and balance back to the body! The Raindrop Technique is the art of dripping unadulterated, therapeutic-grade Young Living essential oils onto the body from a height (like rain), so that the oils interact with the physical body as well as the energy field. These oils are then feathered in using an gentle light-touch technique. This was inspired by the Native American belief that raindrops falling from a height may purify and cleanse the body and spirit. Because the essential oils easily penetrate the skin and muscles, the technique works on deep levels of the body without requiring hard pressure or force. The Young Living® essential oils used most commonly in the technique are Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen or Birch, Marjoram and Peppermint, and the blends Valor, Aroma Siez, and White Angelica. However, other oils may be added or substituted as appropriate and as needed, including oils for supporting emotional and spiritual support.
Want to learn the Raindrop Technique? Contact me for more information. Private and group sessions available.
This is a gentle yet powerful session using the energy of your body and intuition to find your emotional blocks. We then clear these blocks by applying Essential Oils to the body point related to this emotion. Finally, we will use Affirmations and Declarations to shift the negative blocked emotion into positive energy and forward movement!
Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet. The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. In a Reflexology session, pressure is applied to these reflex areas to promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways. You may choose a Reflexology session if you want to reduce stress, improve circulation, increase energy or boost immune function.
Your session will be customized to meet your needs.

AromaDome & Reiki Energy Session
During a session, you lie, fully clothed, on top of a comfortable padded massage table in a tranquil environment. The AromaDome is placed like a tent over the top half of the body, while a specially designed aromatherapy diffuser distributes the essential oil of your choice. REIKI is given at the feet though-out the session. Generally, mellow music is played to help you relax. Some clients find it helpful to establish and focus on their own affirmations and intentions. Positive thinking, meditation and visualization can offer profound cumulative benefits to the body, mind and spirit. It’s also completely okay to relax and just allow your mind to drift off.
A session consists of energy balancing and healing focused on each of the 7 Chakras: A pendulum is used to determine which chakras need special attention, a full chakra layout of crystals are placed on the body while the practitioner facilitates Reiki to aid in the balancing. A pendulum is used to communicate the results of your session. Essential oils and their high energy frequencies attribute to rapid results while offering support to your self-healing process. An Aura Cleansing Sweep and Smudging with sacred herbs is included at the beginning, middle and end of your session. Your experience being a lovely relaxing journey towards Chakra and whole Aura Harmony.
