Welcome!

Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you will come in soon for a relaxing, gentle, full-body/heart/mind healing session.

In the meantime, please stay safe and follow all the protocols regarding this virus. But don’t succumb to fear, panic, or hopelessness. These are the worst destroyers of health. We all need to relax and stay positive. To help with this, I’ve prepared a 17-minute Guided Visualization Audio. You can access it here.

About My Practice

I believe this is a benevolent universe, and part of what this means is that if you are hurting or ill and seek healing, the universe sends you exactly what you have asked for. But this is a world of vibration, and the help only comes in the form of vibrations — which we then have to allow into our Being and Body. Unfortunately, we are so filled with tension, stress, physical tightness and emotional negativity, that we often fail to allow healing vibrations to enter and help us. We then run from practitioner to practitioner, from diet to herb to exercise, and expect one of these people or things to heal us. But we are the healer, no one else. So while various medicines, remedies and practices may certainly help, they will never be as helpful as they could be until we let healing IN.

To do this, we have to release the tension and tightness in our bodies, hearts and minds. So my task is to help you relax, to “let go”, to become deeply soothed, open and receptive. I spend an hour and a half on each visit, working gently, never doing anything painful, and utilizing many techniques I’ve learned over the years, to help bring you into a degree of physical and psychic relaxation that you may not recall ever experiencing before. I work on your feet, legs, pelvis, back, abdomen, chest, arms, hands and neck, to totally calm the whole body. I then do some gentle cranial work to help quiet the mind, and end with a Guided Visualization to remove any last remnants of tension, and to suggest some healing images and emotions into your Being. I work mostly with my hands, aware of the amazing power of human touch, but I also take advantage of the healing vibrations of sound, music and voice: the soothing effects of mechanical vibrations and warm infrared light; and I may release points of tightness and tension in the back or elsewhere with a mechanical “tapping” device.

I don’t think of myself as a ‘healer’, and I don’t treat symptoms or diseases. I think of myself as a helper, helping you relax and allow healing (which comes from a much higher source than me) to take place.

[Please Note: My work is grounded in the great value of human touch. I ask that you wear enough for appropriate modesty, but to understand that I will be touching and stroking your skin. (For women, a two-piece bathing suit or something similar is ideal. For men, shorts. I keep some here.) If you feel this will make you nervous — and thus undo the whole purpose of relaxation — I can work through clothing:  but skin-to-skin touch is very healing, almost magical, so this is the preferred way. Also, the inner thighs and buttock area are places where we all tend to tighten up and hold a lot of stress, so working on these areas can be very important. But, again, if this will make you uncomfortable, simply let me know. My asking fee for the 90 minutes is $90, but I turn no one away for financial reasons.]

How to Awaken Your Heart

Remembering to be happy and full of love are so important for our health and overall well-being. But in our stressful lives, enamored as we are with the goings-on of the external material world, we tend to forget this truth and we leave our emotions at the whim of all the negativity that surrounds us.

Try to remember to be happy and loving for at least a few minutes each day. Here’s an ‘exercise’ that you can set aside a few minutes to do for yourself:

Take some slow, deep, gentle breaths, but imagine in your mind’s eye that you are breathing in and out of your heart. After perhaps a half dozen or so such breaths, continue the heart breathing while you go into your memories and find a moment or event when you were really, really happy, when life was wonderful and you were full of love, enthusiasm, and joy. It may be with a person, it may be an event, an achievement a kiss, a child, a pet – but find a warm happy memory — or, if you prefer, imagine a warm happy future moment! Then, as you continue breathing in and out through your heart, let yourself FEEL these wonderful emotions. Let yourself bask in the pleasure and joy for at least a minute or two.

“When your body, soul and spirit are in alignment…”

“When your body, soul and spirit are in alignment, wholeness is the result. It’s how you were created to live as your true self. It’s where your outer being is dancing to the same rhythm as your inner being. It’s where your ego-self no longer controls your life and you are at one with the Divine Source. And in that place of stability is also where the highest form of love exists, where healing for the body takes place, where the heart and the mind are in a harmonious state of emotional balance.

“Today it can be scientifically proven that whatever emotions you may be experiencing, be they pleasurable or painful, specific chemical proteins called Neuropeptides are released into your body. And simultaneously, a corresponding frequency is produced that influences the neural pathways in the brain. In a nutshell, your emotions can be working for you, or against you. And your physical body will react accordingly.

“It’s a fact that the human body will become weaker and open to sickness when it experiences negative or fear-based emotions over a prolonged period of time. These lower frequency emotions are debilitating, and are expressed as fear, shame, guilt, anxiety, anger, bitterness, hate, unhealthy cravings, and dissatisfaction.

“But the body will function at its optimum when it experiences love-based emotions, which is where the divine is allowed to flow through you. These higher frequency emotions are empowering, and are expressed as love, joy, gratitude, forgiveness, trust, compassion, acceptance, happiness, and inner peace.

“Every cell within your body is calling you to join the dance and be aligned with love.”
