About

I celebrate the wisdom of healing through touch, sound and the stars.

Providing hands-on healing has been a part of my life since childhood. In 1984, I experienced a 15-minute pre-event massage at a national masters swim meet that changed my life. In 1991 while on a bike tour in Door County, Wisconsin, I discovered that massage therapy was gaining in popularity. I graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 1992, and have completed thousands of hours of continuing education since.

The COVID-19 pandemic provided the opportunity to look for creative ways to provide relaxation and pain relief without touch. I found relief in the sounds of my singing bowls, creating supportive scents with essential oils, and diving into astrology. I have completed many hours of training in these old yet new things. I am loving how they combine to provide relaxation and a reduction in anxiety we all need. Astrology may seem an unusual way to approach relaxation, but you will be surprised the things that show up in a birth chart!

With these new additions, I am able to continue to provide integrated work to bring about deep relaxation both in person and over the internet.

My Story

As a little girl, I loved smelling things. I loved pansies and lily of the valley. Especially enthralling was the perfume aisle, where I would spray every perfume on me. And not just the perfume. The men's cologne too. I'm sure I smelled a fright after that but I had a great time.

In the spring when no one was looking, I would dig up lily of the valley and think up ways to extract its delicious aroma. It turns out that it is a plant that has no essential oil, but it started my journey towards creating scent.

Reflexology introduced me to the use of essential oils in bodywork. Once I started with that, I started helping clients create their own blends for their season. It was something that we both enjoyed creating, and they could go home with a foot oil or room diffuser of their special blend.

I'm excited to begin this new journey of creating custom aromatherapy products that solve the needs of my clients. I look forward to guiding you to your perfect blend!
