I also help young adults with learning disabilities such as Autism, ADD and HADD.

I incorporate CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Balancing, MyoFascial Release, Depth Hypnotherapy and different styles of Eastern bodywork modalities such as Shiatsu, Thai Massage and Tui Na. The bodywork I offer helps the body heal at a core level and releases old emotions which no longer serve us. Please be aware I DO NOT offer is oil-based deep tissue and Swedish massage.

I recently completed the Visceral Manipulation and Neuromeningeal Manipulation curriculum at the Barral Institute. As I began taking a deeper interest how our subconscious mind is a key player in deep healing, I completed my training in Depth Hypnotherapy. The visceral (organ) work brings my clients many benefits. These areas are rich with nerves, blood and fluids. Organs can store and express metal and emotional tension. Visceral Balancing can release emotional and physical tension that can eventually leads to disease. The Neural work is also an important layer of bodywork. Our nervous system’s first order of business is to protect us. Many times a muscle will tense to protect an impinged nerve. By treating and freeing the specific nerve instead of all the tissue around it, the muscles can then relax. Releasing restrictions in the Fascial connective tissue give old restrictions a deeper, more permanent change, unlike many styles of body work that just focus on the temporary softening of the muscles. The Depth Hypnosis helps the client get answers from a part of them that they normally don’t have access to.
