What I Do

In my healing practice, I incorporate several modalities.

Common symptoms that bring people to find me are:

irritible bowel, bloating, constipation, anxiety, fertility issues and stress.

Chi Nei Tsang

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is an Eastern healing arts practice developed by Taoist monks thousands of years ago. These monks understood that healing intention, energy, and skillful, physically applied touch helps the body to heal itself. It  addresses emotional and physical tension that might block digestion, filtration of blood, and absorption of food.  CNT treatments aid in the relief of symptoms stemming from conditions such as constipation, liver (qi stagnation), anxiety, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, digestive issues that are triggered by emotional intensity or stress.  CNT is also effective in treating auto-immune diseases such as chronic fatigue and fibromialga, and in relieving stomach pain.  As a cleansing agent, organ massage assists in colon, liver and gall bladder cleansing processess which help relieve the body of excess stagnation, improving elimination and stimulating lymphatic and circulatory systems.

Visceral Manipulation

Viscera relates to the internal organs, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines.  Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction.

Visceral Manipulation, or VM does not focus soley on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem.  VM is a soft hands-on manual therapy.  Underneath the pain or diagnosis is a compensatory pattern created in the body with the initial source of the dysfunction often being far from where the pain is felt.

The treatment is a gentle compression, mobilization and elongation of the soft tissues.  As the source of the problem is released, the symptoms will start to decrease as the body returns to greater health.  This may take several days after the VM treatment.

It is well documented that our emotions have a great impact on how our body functions, and this is greatly due to how receptive our organs are to our feelings.  Different emotions affect different organs.  Emotional reactions can translate into simple spasms in the gallbladder to heartburn, vomiting, feeling faint, ulcers, and serious diseases.  when the brain receives negative emotions it sends tension to the related organ, the organ then sends tension back to the brain resulting in a viscious cycle.  Conversely, a pysically damaged or imbalanced organ can stimulate emotional upset.

VM can break this cycle, enhance the health of the organ, and restore emotional balance.
