Sometimes the world feels too busy, too hurried, too peoplely. Are you on auto pilot most of the time, multi-tasking and managing responsibilities when what you really crave is a bit of calm, a patch of peace? A woman needs to first be in her body to feel her body.
If you’re like me, you’re feeling a quiet call to reconnect with yourself & the natural world. To indulge in sacred pleasures – like wise women before us did. To savour the spray of rose water, the glisten of organic oil on skin & the joy of hand-grinding fragrant herbs. One of my core beliefs is keeping the treat in TREATment. Luxurious. effective. nontoxic.
I invite you to practice the pause. Wind down with a warm, foot soak & we will connect to what best serves you in your body & life. After your massage, there will be time to become present before reconnecting with the world. There are three focused signature massage rituals. Seasonal organic treats included by request.
1.Relax – breathe deeply. Spa elements such as steaming towels, therapeutic grade oils, dry brushing, warm bamboo or hot stones may be offered to heighten your mindbody awareness & sense of pleasure. The tension and stress that drains your energy and steals your enthusiasm for life is replaced by a sense of wholeness, contentment and calmness. Monthly or bi-weekly sessions are recommended for maintenance and the build up of daily stress.
2. Heal- treatment plans focus on supporting your body’s natural ability to heal itself. My clients report reduced body pain, ease of movement, lessened anxiety & deeper sleep. I work with each client to craft an individualized treatment plan to address functional goals, live with more ease and experience more pleasure in life. Chronic & acute health issues, limited mobility, new injuries or long standing unhealthy patterns often require effort and patience. My holistic approach will help sooth your tension and help you recover- clinical techniques are combined with nurturing spa elements to keep you motivated on your goals.
