pinpointing and working through stress areas. Alleviating anxiety and panic disorders, namely, stress, is my forté.

Hypnosis is another natural modality offering for many symptomatic disorders. See Hypnotherapy below for further explanation.

In my bodywork, I am able to incorporate a host of techniques for the differing needs of the individual: Asian Body Work, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Acupressure, Trigger Point, Compression, and lots of stretching when necessary, to name a few. Through these massage techniques, tension and pain are relieved as blockages are removed. Restoring balance, health, relaxation and energy to the client are the results of this work. The massage therapy I offer incorporates a holistic approach – Through deep breathing, tailored pressure, proper healing is accomplished both physically and mentally. This is the holistic way.

Aromatherapy is part of all my massage treatments, and when necessary, hot stone, moist heat (hydrotherapy), hot and cold therapy, is interwoven with the massage to enhance the treatment. Steam treatments can be added.

Some of the many benefits of Massage Therapy, to name a few, are: relieves pain due to Arthritis, Migraine Headaches, TMJ, Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel, Rotator Cuff, Back and Neck Strain, Insomnia, Depression, Anxiety and Panic Disorder; relaxes muscles and alleviates muscle spasms, reduces adhesion; increases energy, reduces stress; Increases Joint Flexibility, Reduces Blood Pressure, Improves Immune System, Increases Circulation (a Diabetic concern). Bottom line Massage or any other intuitive healing modality, Gives Energy!

Further complementing massage, spa treatment offerings: facials, steam therapy (steamy wonder), paraffin hand and foot treatments, algae wraps (body wraps), dead-sea salt scrubs, combined with fresh herbs, detox and drainage oils are part of the relaxation menu. These treatments are often referred to as wet treatments or hydrotherapy using high-grade sea products rich in nutrients. Cellulite Treatment and Toning, (anti-aging treatments), while adding beautifying emollients to the largest breathing organ, your skin, are a few of the many benefits from these services.

The environment in which I work is quiet and peaceful, offering a temporary escape from the outside world. My promise to you is a refreshed and renewed body and spirit with a new mental outlook! My only concern is giving you the finest value for the value of your business.

SwirlHypnosis ~ a Complement
to Health and Wellness

Hypnosis Offerings: My training was under Anne King, a Hypnotist, of over 30 years' experience. Hypnosis is another resource to unlock the body and mind; hypnotism engages more in the mind for added and deeper relaxation as well as problem solving. Hypnosis is, like massage, an ancient and respected healing art, and is preferred by many who wish not to take drugs or seek long-term therapy for mental inertia.

Destructive behavior patterns such as smoking, overeating, negative thought patterns, etc. cease for many due to hypnosis. Hypnosis takes you to a relaxed state of consciousness allowing the conscious and the subconscious to be in a state of suggestibility. Concurrently, this increases desire and energy for positive wanted changes to take place for you, giving you a sense of control to make positive changes. Your goal to cease unwanted behavior and expand your creative abilities can be easily obtained whereas will-power alone is not enough. Quitting unwanted habits and bringing in creative energy and solutions ensues through relaxation and suggestions given in hypnotic sessions. Eating disorders or other addictive habits can be easily replaced by healthy choices. The extra desire and energy to accomplish your dream goals is realized through the hypnotic process.

People seeking more energy, wishing to quit unwanted habits, and who want to expand their creative abilities often find satisfaction in the art of Hypnosis. It is my belief, that with trust, together we can facilitate your innate healing capabilities.

Come Explore this mystical journey of Hypnosis. We are spiritual beings
learning to become more human.

In summation all things done intuitively well is art. It is my belief that the art
on this website comes from the same ‘stuff’ that leads to your healing and is shared
abundantly from the universe at large.
