While a particular type of bodywork may be most effective for certain conditions (or certain people), I believe that the best opportunity for healing happens when any modality helps the client reconnect with his/her self, on a deep level.

I usually facilitate this through Chi Nei Tsang only; or a combination of Chi Nei Tsang, Lymphatic Drainage and Shiatsu, tailored to meet your needs and preferences. I also delight in teaching self-care techniques (CNT, qigong, dry-brushing, castor oil packs, etc.) as part of individual sessions or in small classes!
