Years ago through shamanic dreaming, I began a path of inner healing to bring more joy to myself and others. After much growth and training, I offer three modalities to assist you or your child on your journey of healing and personal reclamation!
Sandplay Therapy combines my love of psychology, the meaning of dreams, symbols and fairy tales, with spontaneous play and the ancient healing medium sand. Kripalu Massage speaks to my love of body/mind/soul healing and the nurturing power of compassionate touch. Reiki brings together the ancient wisdom of universal life force energy and learning to trust in source. Choose a treatment that calls to you!
A Jungian approach developed by Dora Kalff in the 1950s for children and adults. "Through spontaneous imaginative play in small trays of wet or dry sand, clients sculpt sand and position miniature figurines and objects to create three dimensional scenes. In the ‘free and protected space’ of the therapeutic environment, these sand pictures express and mediate between the client’s inner and outer worlds, and promote healing and wholeness." (Canadian Association for Sandplay Therapy). Sandplay is especially effective for healing loss and trauma and is recognized by the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
A calming, blissful yoga based massage with many modalities including skillful medium to deep tissue Swedish techniques, guided breath awareness, imagery, Reiki , trigger points and elements of aromatherapy, reflexology and Trager Bodywork. Find peace, pain relief or transformation of physical/mental/emotional blockages. Feel nurtured from your head to your toes including a face and scalp massage!
An ancient Japanese technique for restoring the body’s natural energy and self healing abilities by a gentle placing of hands on or near the energy pathways. This clears and strengthens the weakened parts of the energy field and can be deeply relaxing and transformative.
