Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) Readings
See your life-course revealed through the ancient “science of light” that relates it to the planetary positions at birth. I offer general life readings, as well as Relationship, Career, Moon, Psychology or Current Transit evaluations. I can also help you choose auspicious times for events and business planning. Learn your “birthstar” and see how your Vedic chart is different than your Western “Sun sign.” I am a Level 2 graduate (BA) in Vedic Astrology from the American Academy of Vedic Art and Science (CVA and ACVA accredited).
Ayurvedic Wellness & Therapies
Ayurveda is a unique health science for understanding and managing wellness in the body, mind, and spirit. It is an integral sister science to yoga and Vedic astrology. Ayurveda respects and focuses on the uniqueness of each individual body-mind in addressing health and wellness. By emphasizing prevention, Ayurveda empowers everyone to take responsibility for their own well-being.
In an individual Ayurvedic Wellness Coaching session, we will begin by discovering your unique body-mind constitution (by observing patterns in body and mind, mostly through a simple questionnaire). With an understanding of your individual constitution, I will offer general dietary guidelines and help you to understand what foods, herbs, and spices best support your unique path to balanced health and wellness. We will work together to develop a simple protocol that you can integrate into your life and daily routines to improve your quality of living and feeling.
For additional support as needed, I also offer Abhyangha (Ayurvedic oil massage), Shirodhara (warm oil application over the third eye), Svedena (herbal steam or bolus treatment), Marma Point Therapy, and Basti treatments (oil or ghee bath over the eyes, heart, back, or organs). We can also work together to develop a personal seasonal cleanse regime, or a Panchakarma protocol (a deeper level of Ayurvedic cleansing and treatment). Please inquire for more information.

Somatic Emotional Clearing
This special modality works with the nervous system and transpersonal psychology, facilitating the client with a deeper awareness of physical blocks, and thereby releasing them by increasing presence in the body in a safe space. Assisted by some gentle holds, this clothing-on therapy can feel like a guided meditation, as I ask questions to guide you deeper into awareness of your own physical sensations while offering support. When a trauma occurred in the past, it may have caused a body armoring, a chronic tension in a certain area, that can cause emotional and physical pain and discomfort for years. By bringing your attention to these areas in a safely held container, they can begin to dissolve, and you can come more fully into being present, whole, and happy through your entire being. This therapy is client-led, and there are many tools we may call upon during the session. I’d be happy to talk with you more about this powerful technique.
Polarity Therapy – Energy Balancing Sessions
Polarity therapy Core, Pelvic and Diaphragm Release sessions can help facilitate your body’s release of emotional holding and armoring (sometimes life-long) in the sympathetic nervous system and specific centers on the body, to improve digestion and structural alignment, reduce stress and promote overall well-being and re-alignment with the universal life-force. Incorporates the ultrasonic gift of toning to invite more coherence and clarity at a molecular level and throughout the organs and tissues. Sattvic presence, with attention on polar reflex points and nerve cell clusters, is offered to allow the free-flow of energy currents so your body can to return to more wholeness, peace and well-being.
A gentle modality offers very subtle pressure to the head, face, spine and sacrum to address restriction in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, calming and nourishing the central nervous system. This is clothing-on treatment, unless combined with other modalities.
I love giving massage to mamas-to-be! I’ve specifically studied pre-natal massage, and know about what your body needs, and also the contraindicated points and conditions. I do pregnancy massage frequently and love nourishing you during this special time.
