Medicine Path Five Element Healing
While many forms of medicine focus on the treatment of symptoms and disease, in five element healing the focus is instead on the root cause. Whether symptoms are physical, mental or spiritual in nature, they are an indicator or warning signal that a meridian is in distress. By treating the root cause the practitioner is able to restore full Qi flow to the meridian system of the individual.
Five Element Healing is a form of Classical Chinese Medicine. Through keen observation ancient sages were able to understand the reflection of nature within the human mind, body and spirit. The foundation of Five Element Healing is the meridian system which holds our animating life force, commonly referred to as Qi (Chi). Each meridian has a unique function reflecting how we relate to and express our outer and inner worlds. The flow and function of the Qi within these meridians affects our organs, mental clarity, and connection to our spirits. The flow of Qi can become blocked or compromised leading to dysfunction and disease.

Throughout our lives many of us have been exposed to trauma or wounding that is experienced at a deep soul level. One of my most natural gifts is to be able to see the internal story of your soul, and can articulate and narrate the story to integrate any aspect of your being that has been compromised. This is often referred to as soul retrieval, and can be a deeply profound experience in returning to wellness.

The Altar of Creation
In 2019 I participated in the Altar of Creation intensive at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck NY with Osteopath Dr. Steven Weiss. This particular workshop was centered around chronic pain and trauma. Why after years of various treatments do some people seem unresponsive? This healing work is based on restoring fundamental, foundational, and inherent patterns of mind, body, and spirit. The same patterns that exist in the creation of all life. While this work is an integral part of my treatment approach. It is best understood in Dr.Steven Weiss's own words.

Integrative Manual Therapy
I continually draw on my many tools to assess and release restrictions through the soft tissues of the body. Pain and dysfunction can be a reflection of a limited range of motion from a variety of factors. Through gentle palpation, we can hone in areas most compromised and begin to release and unwind these tissues.
Visceral Manipulation focuses on releasing restrictions through the organs and associated connective tissue. I specialize in pelvic floor dysfunction, digestive disorders, and chronic pain.
Craniosacral Therapy works with the Central Nervous System, and connective tissue surrounding the brain and spinal cord called the dura. By releasing restrictions within the dura, the cerebrospinal fluid flows with more ease, providing nourishment to the brain and spinal cord. This modality is particularly helpful for people who suffer from headaches or migraines, concussion recovery, anxiety, depression, brain fog, insomnia, and sleep disorders.
Massage Therapy and Myofascial Release are used to release muscle tension and stress, increase blood flow, stimulate the lymph and immune systems, release toxins, stimulate the parasympathetic nervous systems, and create an overall state of relaxation and well being.
What to expect in a session
When you come in for an initial session it begins with a conversation where I get to know you, if we've worked together before then we spend some time checking in on how things have been since we last met. This is not only to hear what you have to say but this time is actually the beginning of the assessment, there is a lot going on (in our world, system, etc.) that we are not consciously aware of, unless trained to do so.
I believe the point of my work is to return people to who they are meant to be in this world. Each individual is different, therefore each session is different. During our session I may use one or many of the healing methods listed below based on what comes forward for you personally.
I regard providing healing for people as one of the most precious gifts I can give back to this world which is why I feel my training is never done. I am continuously learning more and adding to my "spiritual tool kit".
