HEALING ARTS STUDIO

Feeling A Little (Or A Lot) Wonky/Exhausted/Disconnect-Ed/Out Of Sorts/Un-Sparkle-Y/Just Plain Sore?

what sets me apart from other therapists?

1. I was a competitive athlete for a decade, a fitness instructor for two, A personal trainer for a half-dozen years, a dancer and cross-trainer through my adult life (so far). That’s to say. I know bodies. My own and others. very well.

2. I know energy, too. and bridge the physical and energetic smoothly and easily. One client said, “You’ve got this strong angelic, etheric quality to you but also this super grounded connection. it’s rare.” It’s true.

3. And I Offer A very unique combination of modalities To Help You Recover, De-Stress, Relax, Rejuvenate, Bliss Out, Or Reconnect To Your Self & Your Rhythm. Hands, feet, hot stones, cupping/Gua sha, Plant medicine, sound therapy…and more. For real. It’s a regular shmorgasbord over here in the healing arts studio.

so. 20 Years Into This Biz As A Wellness Practitioner And A Lotta Training Under My Belt. I’m Pretty Confident When I Say, “Whatever You Need, You’re In Really Good Hands—pun intended, of course—& really good feet…if you happen to come in for ashiatsu.”

A BIT ABOUT THE LOVE & RITUAL HEALING ARTS STUDIO

How did it all start?

In 1996, at the age of 21 (right out of undergrad), I went to a fitness/wellness training program on Maui. (For six weeks—it was amazing, life-transforming, and awesome.) The program took a mind/body approach to fitness and I was hooked. I took that training and certified as a personal trainer and fitness instructor and immediately started working in the industry.

I was building the foundation of my business as a young, female entrepreneur with a mind + body + spirit approach.

In 1997, I added massage to round out my business. While I thought I was learning massage for the sports and deep tissue massage to use with my training clients, instead I found that I was really there for the subtle work. I fell in love with it. Drawn to it like bees to flowers or Poo bear to honey. After finishing school, I quickly grew my practice.

And to this day, I incorporate both the deep tissue work and the subtle work with an eager and willing client-base.
(As a middle child, I aim to keep people happy.)

I moved to Boulder, CO in 2001 and continued massage, looking for and finding many trainings and ways to expand and grow my offerings.

My Gifts

One way that my gifts as a bodyworker show up is by how I easily move between multiple modalities, seamlessly bridging the practical with the spiritual/woo woo/alternative. Another, I think I have a knack for compassionately shining light on what needs weeding and what needs growing, so to speak, and really help to shift those things in the directions needed. And third, I think that my warmth and welcoming-ness makes balancing the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual easier and more fluid; by creating a sacred space where you feel safe and met, you can revive and rediscover your Amazingness.

Yay!

Additionally, because I made it to the other side of so many freaking health challenges (food sensitivities, chronic digestive issues, headaches, brain fog, periods of severe fatigue, Celiac disease, hypothyroidism and Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, a mold-related illness, to name just some), I think I understand everyone else’s suffering and challenges a bit better. You won’t have to explain how it feels because I know and I can fully open my heart to that struggle and place of suffering in you — you won’t have to do it alone. I’m not scared to see it or be in it with you.

And by the way, I am inspired to do this work because I have a deep desire for the innate goodness, health, well-being and spiritual evolution of every human, community, and the world as a whole. For real. We need more of this, right?! More love, more light.


I’m adaptable. I’m versatile.

Thanks to extensive training, I use quite the assortment of skills and modalities , offering a multi-dimensional, personalized, integrated approach.

This means that depending on what you need on any given day — pain relief, emotional release, grounding/centering, reviving  — I’ll use whatever modality is best and right.


Everything is in service to your self-care and brightest being.
The work is deeply healing, nurturing, and nourishing.
And everything is definitely done in the name of love...and ritual.
