My intention is to provide bodywork and sound healing to aid the individual in restoring and maintaining health and vitality, aligning BodyMindSpirit.  The bodywork, consisting of any combination of Shiatsu, Tui Na, medical Qigong, is based in the Eastern traditions. The energy channels of the body are used to support and reestablish the harmonious flow of the Vital Force or Qi (chi) and activate the natural healing force within.  Sound healing and vibration supports the optimal functioning of the body’s natural healing capacity through deep relaxation, bringing the body at the cellular level back into resonance.  Tuning forks, Tibetan bowls, crystal bowls, and chanting may be used.

 
 

I am a CT. licensed massage therapist since 1993.  I graduated from the Ohashi Institute in New York City where I studied Shiatsu.  My training in Eastern bodywork continued with Master FaXiang Hou, Dr. Ming Wu and Grand Master Fu Wei Zhong in Tui Na, medical Qigong, and the Emei Qigong healing system. My interest in well-being and healing also led me to study at the Hartford Family Institute of West Hartford, CT, which provides training in body-oriented gestalt therapy.  It is a system that sees human beings as whole in essence and addresses the multiple levels of being human - energetic, physical, mind/heart, and spiritual. In 1994 I began practicing Qigong, drawn to it for its natural balancing and healing effects. As a practioner of meditation for 30 years, I am deeply aware of its capacity for reducing stress and enhancing the quality of daily life. I am an ordained minister in the Circle of  the Sacred Earth. As a minister, I can provide spiritual counsel.  I also create and facilitate ceremony marking and celebrating the many life transitions we make as we move through life.

So, what is the relationship between energy and structure (body)? Cell biologists increasingly regard the body as an energy transmitter or a carrier of vibrational information.
