I hope you are happy, safe and well following the past three years of pandemic and other challenges. I hope we have all learned to better care for ourselves and each other through it all. I’m keeping the air flowing at the office and masks are now optional for my clients. I still wear mine for your safety.
My needs to be extra super careful for my husband have thankfully passed. If you have need for me to be extra super careful, please do not hesitate to let me know. There are things I can do to help, including having you come first on the schedule or do extra cleaning.
October 24, 2022 marks 19 years since I received my North Carolina license for Massage & Bodywork Therapy in 2003.
During the pandemic, I made some progress on courses of study including achieving Reiki Master in April of 2022 (first initiated in May of 1992), so this is my longest healing modality.
I also started Ancestral Lineage Healing courses in April of 2020, and continue this still (check out at ancestralmedicine.org). It is an Animist course of study (I used to use the term “shamanic” but the term has been clouded of late.)
As most of you know, I do invite the help of your guardian angels & other benevolent & compassionate helping spirits for your sessions with me (whether or not you even believe in this, I’m not selling anything here). Please ask me more about this if you’re curious. I am hoping to add some classes along these lines in the coming year.

MAKING the MOST of IT
To maximize the benefits of your bodywork…
Begin to hydrate a day or two before (drink more water and eat hydrating foods). It will be much more comfortable to receive the work and the extra water will help your body eliminate any toxins stirred up by pressure and increased circulation
Get some movement. The day or so before bodywork is a perfect time to start a new activity (but don’t get too crazy) Any soreness from new movement will probably dissipate more quickly, and the extra circulation from movement will help your body prepare for and integrate changes.
Think about any positive changes you would like from your bodywork session (emotional, physical, existential, etc.) and share that as an “intention” or focus for the session.
TO DO AFTER
Drinking more water is important to do after as well, so I will get you started with a cool glass of spring water.
Planning a bit of down time or at least easing back into your day is a good idea. The surroundings of the office are quiet and woodsy, so just spending a quiet few minutes in your car can be perfect. You may be a little wiped out and hungry, so bring a healthy snack to bring yourself back into focus. If possible, take as long as you can to just relax and enjoy.
