Other Services

We also offer some alternative healing modalities such a Bio Dynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy. DCST is a very gentle hands-on therapy that works with the subtle energy of the body. It is an extremely relaxing and healing modality. At the same time, the client remains fully dressed and reclining comfortably on the massage table. Beneficial for headaches, neck pain, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc.

Spiritual healing is also available here in the form of Shamanic Healing. Shamanic healing is an ancient form of healing. It addresses deep underlying spiritual causes of problems or troubles one may be experiencing. It works by connecting the client to powerful spiritual guidance and healing to help with personal growth, overcoming addictions, negative thought patterns, depression, anxiety, and other unhealthy behaviors and conditions.

All Massage and Healing work is by appointment only. With this in mind, you may schedule your appointment online through the website, or call, text, or FB message. Occasionally same day appointments are available, but it is best to schedule ahead of time.
