Just as the water reflects the stars and the moon, the body reflects the mind and soul. - Rumi
Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force. - Lao Tzu
Art of Flow - Holistic Bodywork where East and West meet
My approach is to merge Eastern and Western modalities of healing that utilize the body's wisdom to heal itself. The various techniques I use integrate ancient eastern wisdom with western psychological understanding. They cover a wide range of body-oriented therapies from strongly physical, deep-tissue massage to the most subtle energy work.
Each of the practices explores the art of flow: the natural, effortless unwinding of our lives in a way that moves us toward wholeness and harmony. Its focus is to cultivate harmonious, balanced movement and flow rhythm on all levels such as physical, emotional, mental, energetic, and spiritual. Flow is central to my work because it is essential to our health and well-being. Communication and coordination between all of our parts require the smooth flow of biochemical and electromagnetic signals through our fluids, tissues, and bones. The fluidity of our emotions and thoughts enables us to harmonize our inner world and to be flexible and resilient in our dealings with the outer world.
Increased awareness in the art of flow invites us to connect with our inherent capacity to heal. Harmonious flow is relevant in today’s world, not only for our health, but also for our relationships, careers, and personal growth - we can become more healthy, connected, abundant, and energized.

Craniosacral Therapy is a Western holistic healing modality, based on osteopathy, that optimizes the flow of energy throughout the body. It is a form of gentle touch therapy that focuses on bringing the craniosacral system into balance by release any restrictions in the fluids, tissues and bones that surround the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system. The central nervous system sends and receives messages about how each system is working and what the body may need to regain and maintain proper function. A balanced central nervous system can access one’s inner wisdom and innate self-healing capacity to calm the mind, harmonize the emotions, and support physical well-being. The meditative states that occur with Craniosacral therapy facilitate a deeper mind-body-spirit connection that is healing and deeply rejuvenating on all levels.
Five Element Shiatsu
Five Element Shiatsu is an Eastern therapeutic form of massage based on the acupressure system of points and meridians (channels where the energy flows). Shiatsu means finger pressures in Japanese. It consists of finger and palm pressure, stretching and compressing to release muscle tension, toxicity, and the vital life energy (ki/chi) responsible for nourishing all aspects of the body and mind. An acupressure point is a point on the surface of the body with a high level of conductivity of electromagnetic energy. The energy flows through channels called meridians and spreads throughout the body right down to the last cell. This energy nourishes the internal organs, glands, muscles, nerves and vital centers of the body.
Five Element Shiatsu is based on Wu Xin (Five Element Theory) of Traditional Eastern Medicine. The basic principle of Eastern healing is that each individual possesses his or her own innate healing power...a power that arises from the balanced flow of the body's ki energy in harmony with the movement of universal ki/chi energy. Disease arises when this flow of ki (vital energy) becomes distorted and therefore treatment is focused along specific meridians to unblock and stimulate the flow of energy, and to harmonize Ki. Five Element Shiatsu is not only a deeply relaxing experience but also a truly holistic therapy, working on our physical structure and also on an energetic level to stimulate harmony in body, mind and spirit.

A combination of Swedish, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and acupressure (Shiatsu) to encourage your body's natural healing ability. Swedish and deep tissue massage lengthen and release the body’s multiple layers of skin and muscle tissue, and increase circulation of blood and lymph. Myofascial release warms and loosens the body’s fascia, layers of connective tissue that wrap around all of our soft tissue, which can trigger pain and tightness when restricted. Acupressure stimulates the flow of chi, or energy, and open tight or congested points along the body’s acupuncture meridians. Each session is guided by what the body is telling in that moment - sometimes it needs deep work, but without overwhelming the body or causing pain. Some sessions are a little more broad, a little less muscle-specific and more work as the whole. Some sessions are very specific, with detailed work focusing on one or two particular troubles spots. Some sessions are a combination of both. The structure of the session is always decided together by the client and the practitioner at the beginning and/or during the session by both spoken and unspoken dialogue.
Thai Yoga is a traditional healing modality which has been practiced in Thailand for centuries and it is based on Ayurvedic medicine, hatha yoga and Buddhist practice. Thai Yoga incorporates a traditional combination of assisted yoga stretches, acupressure, and energy meridian work to help the body return to a state of balance. Thai Yoga routine can be varied to suit a wide range of physical needs to aid in the increase of range of motion and muscle strength. It also stimulates the energy flow within the body and helps you feel relaxed, renewed, energized; more flexible and peaceful.

Cupping (add-on only)
$50 / 30min
Cupping therapy is a combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated for a few minutes or longer to create suction and, a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.
SomatoEmotional Release is a therapeutic process that uses the concepts of Craniosacral Therapy to free the body and mind of the Residual effects of past injuries and negative experiences. This work focuses on establishing a strong mind-body connection in order for the release of emotional trauma and the resolution of physical symptoms. As restrictions are released and the body begins to return to optimal functioning after a few session of Craniosacral Therapy, many possible sensations may occur. The release may be felt as heat, pulsing, relaxation, or in many other ways. Because memories of trauma and injury are often stored in the connective tissue of the body, sometimes the release is accompanied by emotion or old memories related to the original cause of the restriction. When this happens, the patient and therapist work together to allow the expression of these patterns of tissue memory, often dramatically reducing the level of pain or dysfunction in the area involved.
*minimum 2 sessions of Craniosacral Therapy is required beforehand.

When the therapist and the patient are not two, when the therapist is not a therapist only and when the patient is not a patient anymore, but a deep 'I-thou' relationship arises, where the therapist is not trying to treat the person, when the patient is not looking at the therapist as separate from himself, in those rare moments therapy happens.
When the therapist has forgotten his knowledge and the patient has forgotten his illness and there is a dialogue, a dialog of two beings. In that moment between the two, healing happens. And if it happens the therapist will know already that he functioned only as a vehicle of a divine force, of a divine healing. He will be as much grateful for the experience as the patient, in fact he will gain as much out of it as the patient. - Osho
