PEACE OF MIND
AT A TIME
Your body is an archive of your past and a bridge to your future. We hold memories of past experiences, emotions, and thoughts in our physical structure. This often leads to postural and movement patterns that over time have an adverse effect on our physical and emotional health. Massage therapy addresses pain and dysfunction in the body. It creates the potential for releasing those obsolete, negative thoughts and emotions. You experience a reduction in physical pain and less restricted movement patterns.
I have practiced medical massage therapy since 2001 and hypnotherapy since
1992. Drawing on a wide range of clinical experience and training, I am informed by mentors and master-level teachers. My spiritual masters deeply influence my work, as do the Cajun traiteurs from whom I learned spiritual healing arts. My training includes Eastern and Western forms of massage therapy, as well as spiritual and herbal folk medicine and sound healing.
Exploring the Unconscious
You and I explore possible unconscious emotional patterns that may be the cause of a physical pain or a negative behavior. Your session includes massage techniques combined with hypnosis techniques. When you learn to reframe your thoughts, it leads to the release of the associated physical issue. When you re educate the body it can release old negitive emotions.
Therapy means homework!
Therapy is a process that continues after your session. I almost always give my clients additional homework. Your homework might be something as simple as a stretching exercise. It might be something fun and curious, such as an old folk medicine ceremony involving affirmations and perhaps herbs. In return for your hard work, you experience valuable, tangible rewards.
Making Positive Changes
Mind-body integration therapy engages all five senses in a positive way to create change. It's the therapy most often requested by my regular clients. They find it very satisfying to discover the link between a thought and its physical manifestation. You'll be empowered to make the changes you want to take place in your life.

you touch everything."

THERAPEUTIC AND MEDICAL MASSAGE THERAPY
Receive a combination of Western massage techniques to increase your range of motion, relieve your pain, and balance your posture. I've been a licensed massage therapist since 2001, and I'm certified in medical massage therapy. Medical massage addresses chronic tightness, ongoing pain, and postural misalignment due to repetitive stress and injury. A 60-minute session is $175 and a 90-minute session is $210.
FIVE ELEMENT SHIATSU MASSAGE
The five elements are fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Each of these elements has associated organs and energetic pathways in the body through which chi (energy) flows. Each of these elements also has an associated emotion. Your energy pathways can be assessed through visual observation and palpation. This process gives me an understanding of how your emotions are affecting your body and how your body is affecting your emotions. Individual session is $175.
Reiki is a Japanese word that literally means universal life energy. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch. This activates the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restores physical and emotional well-being. I'm a sixth generation Reiki master in the Usui lineage. I offer private sessions for $175, and teach group classes to those interested in becoming certified practitioners and eventually masters.
Sound is vibration. It vibrates our bodies and moves our minds and spirits to respond.
Using the sound of musical instruments, percussive instruments and the voice, we can change emotions, thoughts and ultimately behavioral patterns. Together, you and I will use these tools to fine tune your goal and personalize it with your own vibrational signature. $210
Hypnotherapy allows you to dive deeply into your hidden emotions without the interference of your critical mind. You can explore connections between how you feel and how you behave without fearing judgment. Your subconscious mind can hold you back or move you forward. Learn to free yourself from negative feelings and unhealthy behaviors with the power of your subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is an excellent treatment for addressing many challenges, including:
• Managing Stress & Anxiety
• Physical Pain Management
• Overcoming Fears & Phobias
• Understanding Negative Patterns
• Discovering Unused Skills & Talents
• Releasing & Removing Creative Blocks
• Managing Addictions including Smoking, Drug Addictions and Sexual Addiction
It's my personal belief that we're always in one state of hypnosis or another. We're constantly moving from one trance into another to accommodate the various aspects of our personalities and the various roles in our lives. For example, the emotions and behaviors we express when relating to our parents are very different from the emotions and behaviors we express when relating to our bosses. I teach you how to utilize this dynamic to work for your benefit.
Consciously and creatively shaping the fundamental ways in which you relate to the world, learn, and take in information is part of hypnotherapy. You and I together create lasting, even permanent, changes in your life. Individual private sessions are $250.
