Reiki has become much more well known and appreciated in the recent years. I was trained in the Usui lineage, but in this course realized that I have in fact been self-taught in this healing style for years. Our intuition is often our best teacher.
With the unconditionally loving intent of healing Presence, this very simple form is profound in it’s impact. By holding space with you, your body can find healing for itself. With deep inner quite, you will be led and supported to follow into this deep, quiet place as well. Reiki is done clothed while laying on a massage table. Reiki can help speed healing post surgery, increase ones ability to Love (self and others), help move through or release grief and other difficult emotions, ease anxiety and provide longer term skill in managing anxiety. It is beneficial for just about anything. We all need Love, as well as relaxation to balance our nervous systems. In a world with much to rattle the nerves, Reiki comes in to bring us back to balance.
This style is my version of shamanic healing, though I don’t truly align with that term. I feel subtleties in the body. After almost 10 years of being a bodyworker, and a lifetime as an empath, I am sensitive to energy. What do I mean when I say ‘energy’? You know when you get a ‘feeling’, a sense? Some of us are better than others in trusting this ‘sense’. As a bodyworker, this sense can get quite refined over time, especially if you are someone who ‘listens’ really closely and quietly. This is what meditation trains us to do. Messages can then come through, in this open space, outside of monkey mind. Clients seem amazed that I just seem to ‘know’ what they need. This has become one of the most important tools I employ – intuition – as well as deep presence. It has taught and initiated me into the use of most of the tools that I use in my Transformational Healing sessions. And more seem to be coming to me with each new client I work with, based on their unique needs and presentation.
This session empowers and encourages you to participate and co-create your own self-healing session by practicing your own intuition. Guided visualizations, breathwork, vocalizations, sound healing, somato-emotional release, and conscious movement are some of the tools that may be used in such a session. This session can be done clothed or with standard massage techniques.
After a Transformational Healing session clients report feeling more grounded, energized, centered, and creative – simply more their true selves. The body becomes an ally rather than an enemy. A deeper trust of intuition provides more freedom and confidence in daily life, free from anxiety and over-thinking.
I believe we should all be healers. I look forward to a world where all adults and children are skilled in massage, meditation, and compassionate communicate for the empowerment and vibrant health of themselves and their communities.

Falcon Cove Hot Stone Therapy
Local basalt stones I personally collected from the North Oregon Coast are warmed to perfection and applied to the skin with oil to provide a deeply penetrating warmth that not only melts ones muscles, but also ones mind. Stubborn tension cannot help but to surrender to such delightful bliss. This is a favorite remedy for the cold, dark, wet months here in the Pacific Northwest.
Optimal Performance Sports Massage
This session helps to make sure that muscles are stretched and flexible, preventing injury, and boosting performance.The more spring in your step, the greater power in the dynamic of your sport – gain up to 20% increase of speed, performance, and strength.
Post-event, this session speeds recovery by bringing relaxation to stressed muscles and mind. Benefits include reduction of swelling and increasing or maintaining range of motion so you can find your best form possible.
Cupping is a tool that can provide fast relief to tension and myofascial holding patterns. Some people find the sensation of cupping utterly satisfying, and others find it painful. Please let me know if you are curious to try a cup and see where you land on the spectrum.
I use plastic cups that suction to the skin to provide an opposite effect to the downward pressure of massage, by pulling skin and muscle tissues up and away from the body. This helps create space between these aspects in the body, as well as helping bring fresh blood, oxygen, and energy flow to the areas addressed to renew and revive circulation and tissue health.
*Be aware that there can be a bruise-like effect to this treatment which may last up to about a week, depending the stagnation present in the area.
Hara Abdominal Healing Massage
The stomach is an area that is often avoided and overlooked, but is a common place of holding. I believe from many years of experience that we can hold onto tension, anxiety, emotions, and memories in our bodies. I describe it as an experienced that we may not have fully experienced through to the end. Perhaps we did not have the means, skill, or time to fully heal, release, or integrate the experience, or trauma in some cases. By returning to this holding, we allow ourselves to complete the experience through to completion, full healing, and integration.
Our abdomen is a place that is not only vulnerable physically, as it is the place we carry the majority of our vital organs, but also a place where we can store many of our vulnerable emotions. We gently visit and meet this area and it’s emotions with tenderness, attention, patience, courage, and care in order to release that which we are ready to let go and move on from. And this results in greater energy, lightness, and flow.
I believe this area is a very important area to nurture regularly, not only with a healthy diet and colonics or enemas occasionally, but also mindful meditation and self-massage.
