1997 Graduate of Synergy Massage and Wellness Center, Blue Ridge Summit PA

Master Samyama Practitioner, training 22 years with Sheila Foster, Temple of the Sacred Feminine

 

Practice Philosophy
You contain the wisdom within your own body for any healing you may feel you need.  The ancient practice of Samyama simply helps you become aware of this wisdom yourself.  With my touch and encouragement, facilitating your focus and attention, you will become more and more aware as well as more and more trusting in this inherent body wisdom.

Why do I Practice this way?
A survivor of developmental trauma, I have found practicing present moment awareness while receiving bodywork of all modalities provides the most affective and lasting relief from post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD).

Applying Samyama, bringing awareness to the triggers, tightness and pain in my own body while receiving bodywork, I can meet the latent trauma at the sensation level, without slipping back into the re-traumatizing nature of PTSD triggers. 

A little bit about me

Some of my interests and hobbies include road bicycling, fishing with my husband, trail bicycling with our daughter and friends, barbecuing, gardening and writing.
