Massage therapists use long, smooth strokes, kneading and other movements focused on superficial layers of muscle. Massage therapy improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
People get massage therapy for relaxation or for a variety of health conditions:
- Back pain
- Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and tendinitis
- Stress relief and stress-related conditions
- Headaches and migraines
- Muscle and related conditions such as spasms, strains and sprains
- Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Circulatory and respiratory problems
- Post-injury and post surgical rehabilitation
Massage therapy relieves stress. It is thought to help the body's stress response by lowering levels of hormones such as cortisol. Massage therapy also appears to enhance immune function.

Reflexology is similar to acupuncture and acupressure in that it works with
the body's vital energy through the stimulation of points on the body. Reflexology practitioners see themselves as working "from the inside out" --
stimulating the nervous system to release tension. Reflexology is "reflex" therapy in that works with points on one part of the body to affect other parts of the body. In reflexology, points and areas on the feet, hands, and ears correspond to specific organs, bones and body systems. Practitioners access these points on the feet and hands and the ear to affect organs and systems throughout the entire body.
Reflexology releases congestion or stress in the nervous system and balance the body's energy.

ThetaHealing® involves accessing the Theta brainwave through a deep meditative state. It is the same wave used in hypnosis. When the brain is in this wave, the cerebral cortex (critical analysis) is bypassed and we are able to access the subconscious. In this state, the subconscious is open to releasing beliefs that no longer serve you, grief, sorrow, loss (these things take up precious real estate inside your subconscious) and to replace these with Truths, positive beliefs, forgiveness, etc. (i.e. healthy relationships are possible, It is safe to love, I know how to listen to my body, etc). During this process, new neural pathways are formed and literally, new grooves of thought are introduced that are in alignment with your highest good.
We can address anything that is coming up in your life that's not working - physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. A session has two parts – the first being sharing story and letting emotions and deep feelings come up and be acknowledged. The second part of the session will be me leading you into a deep Theta space and shifting the energies you no longer want with your Highest Truths.
This work can shift a lot and is helpful if you feel called to it. You are welcome to send me further questions if you have them.

Reiki is working with the Chi (life-force energy) of the body and releasing stress, blockages, tension and pain to bring in healing. Going into the Alpha brainwave, which is a light meditative state – the body is able to relax in a deep way that is truly healing. As a Reiki healer, I channel Chi from the Source and bring it into your system, as extra “fuel” for muscle and body repair, emotional release and healing. This is the art of “laying on of hands” that was taught to the great teachers throughout history and has been a resource for healing for 2500 years. My natural gift of creating a loving, safe space creates a feeling of peace never felt before for some.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most dependable medical therapies used
to treat a wide range of health conditions. It is simple, safe and effective.
Acupuncturists use thin, sterile, disposable needles, which are superficially
inserted, into specific areas of the body in order to help the body's ability to
heal itself. Acupuncture has gained popularity in the US over the past 30 years.
There is an increasing amount of scientific evidence, which proves acupuncture
is not only extremely safe but also statistically effective.
Chinese Medicine is an holistic model of healthcare with a goal of bringing
the whole person into balance. Unlike Western Medicine, it does not merely treat
symptoms, instead it treats the underlying cause of illness. Acupuncture and
Chinese Herbal Medicine are helpful not only in recovering from disease but also
in prevention of illness. Some of the conditions I have seen the most success
Anxiety Low Immunity
Chronic and Acute Pain Migraines
Chronic Fatigue Neurological Disorders
Colds/Flus Skin Disorders
Digestive Troubles Sports Injuries
Gynecological Issues Stress/Depression

Yoga Therapy Personal Sessions
Yoga therapy uses the ancient science of yoga to enhance health and wellness at all
levels of the person: physical, emotional, and spiritual. Yoga therapy focuses on the path of yoga as a healing journey that brings balance to all aspects of life through an experiential awakening of our essential nature. Yoga therapy is useful both for people who seek relief for specific health challenges, as well as for people who want to enjoy good health, prevent disease, and slow the progression of aging. Yoga therapy is the therapeutic use of yoga, specifically to help alleviate or manage disease conditions.
In your personal yoga therapy session, you will receive a session tailored to your specific needs and health conditions. This includes personalized yoga postures as well as all or some of the following techniques: pranayama (breath control), meditation and guided visualization, energization, restorative yoga, and/or use of affirmations. At the end you will receive a home plan suited to your needs to target your specific health conditions including asanas.
Yoga is about taking little steps, consistently and patiently, to deepen your relationship with your body, to invite greater health and vitality into mind and body, to achieve greater balance of mind and spirit. It is exactly in this way, step by step, exploration after exploration, that yoga spontaneously creates its therapeutic effects.
Yoga is therapy because, ultimately, true healing must involve not just our body, but our mind, our emotions, even our spiritual life.
Many people who practice yoga continue to do so, because they find that yoga has
helped them to not just deal with a health issue like depression or back pain, but to develop a new and deeper appreciation of life, and a greater joy and happiness!

Iridology Assessment and Consultation
Iridology is the story in your eyes. Are the eyes really the “windows to the soul?” After more than 30 years of study and experience in the field of iris analysis, Linda has come to the conclusion that our eyes reveal the “journey” we are on to reclaim wholeness and that our soul mirrors that light reflection through the very fibers of our eyes!
If you look closely at your eyes, you will see certain patterns in the iris structure and color. No two irises are exactly alike. By understanding this “road map” or blueprint or individual characteristics, we find a rich source to increase our awareness related to not only our potentials for certain inherited health risks, but even deeper levels of imprinting that may limit or support our soul’s expression and purpose.
As these are brought to the awareness of the conscious mind and heart, we can learn how to attune to our core vibrational blueprint with positive choices and healthy lifestyles.
Our eyes reveal a kind of holographic picture of our mind-body-spirit connections
and even display trans-generational (genetic) patterns, passed down through the
generations. Through iris analysis we gain access to healing blueprints of the soul’s journey to help heal ancestral patterns, to facilitate conscious healing and address current issues.
The iris provides a treasure map of the precious gift and talents we have inherited
as well as the “toxic or lifestyle challenges”, which need to be transformed, forgiven and released.
Iridology assessment benefits:
Appreciate your wonderful body in new ways.
Tap deeper into your innate ability to heal yourself.
Discover vital nutrition principals necessary to help prevent disease, and support your
mind, body and spirit.
Learn how to radiant health, through cellular cleansing and regeneration methods.
Understand the foundational role of enzymes, natural probiotics, trace minerals, and whole foods.
Acknowledge the natural healing power within you and make lifestyle choices that will
support your personal health, your family health, and your community.
