Certified Esalen® Massage Therapy  

Esalen® Massage integrates the entire body: your breathing pattern, your body’s response to the world, the famous “long stroke” creating a head to toe flow over the body much like the waves of the Pacific Ocean. My certification as a Esalen® massage therapist has enriched my career and passion in helping others reveal their true selves. Thai massage offers assisted stretching and range of motion while increasing both one’s energy and flexibility. My training in Thailand allows me to incorporate the Thai massage modality into treatment. Esalen® Massage is the melting pot of all modalities, a vast array of influences. Esalen® Massage is defined by the relationships we build. Shankara pre blended Aryuvedic Oils applied in treatment.

Healing I

The past twenty years of massage therapy has led me to offer this revolutionary massage treatment.  Previously we have all had treatment which have omitted the feet, glutes, abdominals, and the neck and face. This innovative two hour session is a journey of integration where the entire body is addressed using a range of modalities working in unison to provide a deeper experience of rest and digest. The peripheral nervous system is accessed through aromatherapy, reflexology, the techniques of Arvigo Maya therapy, Esalen massage, and sculpture lifting techniques. The stored pain and stress in all soft tissues is released allowing us to realign chakras, eliminate anxiety and surrender to our deepest subconscious. Addressing intraoral work releases the jaw and tension in the neck. In the Arvigo techniques your vagus nerve, diaphragm, and psoas experience greater circulation to support your homeostasis. By traveling this path in "Healing I" there is a physical and emotional release of stored memories in our muscle. This is for the person who is returning to life from chronic illness or trauma.

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®

The ancient therapy of ATMAT stimulates five systems of flow while gently guiding and supporting organs to their optimal position which allows optimal health and wellness. The ATMAT therapy is a modality to maintain balance and well being. ATMAT addresses misalignment or congestion in both male and female reproductive organs. Digestive disorders are addressed as well. The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction, improving total flow of lymph, chi, endocrine, nervous and circulatory systems.
