I’m a highly sensitive person committed to compassionate loving self-care and growth.
I don’t feel like a “normal” person… I’ve been challenged with chronic tension and pain a lot of my adult life, digestive issues, and overall sensitivity. It took a long time to come to value the gifts of being sensitive, but now I am grateful because my life feels so rich because of it.
My passion now is to support others to get in touch with the joys and pleasures of subtleties, and to get to know their bodies better. Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned… it’s that the body doesn’t lie. It tells us what it wants, what it needs, what’s working in our lives and what isn’t. That’s amazing insight to have if we know how to listen.
My journey has been one of discovering who I am, what I need, what I want: Why do I have pain? What should I eat? How do I want to feel?
I’ve explored many paths, and devoted a lot of time to studying a myriad of things over the past 15 years - gender, sexuality, culture, social justice, emotional intelligence, embodiment, dance, yoga, cooking, diet and health, nutrition and lifestyle, aromatherapy, meditation, bodywork. My work now is a pooling together of these resources to be of service to you, my other sensitive brothers and sisters, and the world.
My main practice and healing art now is a gentle, quiet form of Craniosacral Therapy and bodywork - a kind of body meditation where you have space and time to feel, to notice, to listen to your body for messages. Its focus is to give your nervous system time and space to really relax and let go of whatever you need to, to support your healing process, whether that is physically recovering from an accident or injury, or moving through personal or emotional healing and growth.
The body knows how to relax, how to find balance, how to heal. In this crazy modern world, it just usually doesn’t get the time or space. It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself (and the people you care for and the world).
Supportive, super relaxing, deep, wow... "I feel really different."
It's kind of like reflexology for your head and spine... it helps your whole body reset, release, and relax (your tension, patterns, stress, injuries, etc) by unwinding you from your nervous system out.
