I am a present, sensitive LMT who works with strength but gentleness. I have studied 5-elemental framework and use this to address the layers of the human body, from skin inwards to muscles, tendons, nerves, tissues, to bones, and internal organs.
Deep listening practices, including listening to the body, as well as to any symptoms or imbalances you are experiencing are used to modify the approach towards homeostasis. Eastern practices such as thai massage gently nudge you back towards homeostasis by allowing you a space within which to listen deeply to your own body as well as engage the energy, increasing daily ease and comfort within one's bodymind.
I am also an experienced birthkeeper who has attended births in person, even doula-ed via the web to provide support internationally to families during birth experiences, I have attended numerous trainings ranging from DONA's physical hands-on support techniques in Seattle, Washington at Bastyr's campus, to Birthing From Within's archetypal journey and birth labyrinths, to my journey with Dar a Luz in Copan Ruinas, Honduras, third world hospital adventures, to attending 24-hr births, high-risk births, natural, unmedicated deliveries with hands-on birth support and assistance, Hypnobirthing fan, belief in a woman's ability to listen deeply to herself and her own body in order to birth for the highest grace of both herself and her offspring in the most comfortable possible, including various positions, techniques, breathing, visualizations, and hands-on birth support for the greatest possible outcome : a celebration of new life.
