Head Heart Hands Healing
CMT, CST-D, MS Ed
I have been practicing massage and manual therapy for twenty years and have completed diplomat certification in craniosacral therapy through the Upledger Institute. I am a certified mentor and study group leader for UI, as well as a graduate of The Acupressure Institute and The McKinnon Institute with CMT licensure. In my therapeutic practice, I specialize in craniosacral therapy for all ages while incorporating acupressure and massage when warranted. I am also a Waldorf and educational support teacher and enjoy working with children and adults of all ages.
I believe that wellness and education are deeply related and love to find ways to bridge both the therapeutic and educational arts in support of clients. For returning clients wishing to book regular or weekly appointments a discounted fee is available.
CST is a deeply relaxing and gentle manual therapy that works with the whole body through the myofascial, (connective tissue) system. I will work over your clothing. My practice is located in Westside Healing Arts Center, a lovely multi-therapist clinic space in Westside Santa Cruz.
Facing my own health challenges in early adulthood led me to explore paths in the healing arts while an interest in education led me to Waldorf schools and trainings. When I crossed paths with craniosacral therapy, it was clear to me that this was the therapeutic modality that I was meant to be practicing. I have continued to study, practice and overlap both therapeutic bodywork and education throughout the past two decades.
