Healing requires movement and stillness
I believe that healing, in all its forms, requires movement and stillness in a safe, gentle, and heart-centered environment. As a Reiki Master Practitioner, Healing Touch Apprentice, and Certified Massage Therapist, I use my heart and hands to tap into and gently support the wellness residing within each of us.
Our bodies are amazing! We each have innate systems of health, detoxification, and renewal working constantly to try to keep us in balance but stress, emotional and physical trauma, illness, and a host of other maladies can tax those systems into overwhelm. Heart-centered bodywork helps to support and promote those systems of health so they can do their jobs and get your energy moving and flowing into balance.
I love this work and look forward to every opportunity I have to practice it - at the Sacramento VA counseling center on Howe Avenue, the Davis monthly Reiki circle, and in private sessions.
My private sessions focus on cranial sacral balancing, Reiki/Healing Touch, and therapeutic massage to address issues such as:
- Emotional and physical trauma
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Neck, shoulder, jaw strain
- Pre- and post-surgical situations
- Pain of unknown origin (idiopathic pain)
- Grief and loss

From time to time, I lead, co-create, or participate in local health and wellness events and always welcome new opportunities.
On the first Sunday of the month, you'll often find me at the Davis community Reiki circle hosted by my wonderful friend and colleague Elizabeth Fulmer, RMT, KMT, HTP-A.
In July 2016, I participated on a panel of Reiki practitioners and receivers to introduce Reiki and talk about this fascinating and health-promoting practice. After the brief period of talking, we got to the good stuff - experiencing Reiki! The format included a seated, guided visualization session and light refreshments. No experience or belief was necessary and all were welcome. Look for another Reiki evening to happen in early 2018.
In December 2015, I taught a Self-Reflexology class to UC Davis faculty and staff. We learned reflexology principles and techniques to practice stress reduction while waiting in line, at your desk, on the shuttle, anywhere! Please contact me if you'd like to arrange a similar small-group activity for your home or office.
In November 2015, Elizabeth Fulmer and I offered a workshop on Creating a Meditation Altar. This was a fun and creative evening with time devoted to contemplation as well as crafts. Please contact me if you'd like to arrange a similar small-group event for your home or office.
