In-Person Wellness Services

This page is for those of you who find yourselves in my neck of the woods and wanting to work with me in person.  And to you, I say:  Yay!  I'd love to meet you and work with you face to face!  

Below, I've listed the services currently available for an on-site session, as well as a little information on what to expect from each.  The location(s) will be dependent upon a number of factors, including whether I'm in a nomadic or nesting period, as well as local licensing laws.  When nesting, I often work both with established local businesses and on my own - in a home office, mobile unit, or outcall situation, depending.  If you are unsure where I am at the moment, just shoot me an email and ask!

UPDATE:  I am currently relocating to Asheville, NC!  Check back soon for more information on where and when I'll be seeing clients.


The massage services I offer are customized sessions consisting of a mix of modalities.  My specialities are Myofascial Release, Structural Integration, and deeply relaxing Swedish, though I am also trained in lymph drainage, joint mobilization, sports massage, hydrotherapy, Nuad Boran (Thai), gemstone/crystal healing, and Reiki (level 2)*.  My work is highly intuitive, and can be deeply relaxing and therapeutically healing.

Reiki, a form of energy healing, can be described as a spiritually guided manipulation of the life force energy that flows in and around each of us at all times.  You should feel safe, nurtured, and deeply relaxed during the entire session. 

Gemstone healing is the practice of using gems, crystals, and stones to effect healing.  It can be powerful all on its own, or used in conjunction with other healing therapies to add a boost of healing where it's needed.

The yoga I teach does not belong to any particular lineage of hatha (yoga).  It is a culmination of my experiences studying, practicing, teaching, and working with my teachers and my clients over the past 18+ years.  It is always evolving, as I am always evolving, and life is always evolving.  One might describe my classes as an exploration of form and function through both movement and stillness.  I will invite you to really experience the structural integrity of a number of asanas, or poses, finding the best alignment that is available to you in your unique body.  Sometimes we explore the constants within a series of fluidly connected movements, or vinyasas.  Sometimes we explore the experience of being in a pose longer than we might be used to.  

I teach from an all-levels perspective.  Each asana, or posture, has an infinite spectrum on which to experience it.  This means that any body can do any pose ... it's just a matter of finding one's own current interpretation of the pose.  It is my aim to help my clients do just that.  There is a strong focus of alignment and form and free will in my classes.  There's also a lot of mirth and camaraderie.  It's good, healthy fun!

If you have any questions about any of these services, please feel free to email me.  I'd love to hear from you!  

It’s my great desire to make tarot readings available to everyone who wants one.  If you are interested in a service, but are unable to afford the cost, please message me with a brief description of what your current circumstances are, and we’ll try to find a way to make this work for the both of us.  Everyone deserves a happy, healthy life!
