Deep Healing Energy | 528Hz Ancient Frequency | Sound Healing Session | Zen Meditation

Today’s a national day of prayer...
Even if you don’t pray, listening to the music is calming. So much fight or flight going on it can be hard for most of us to hear an inner voice of clarity. Take a few minutes to relax at least... keep your energy balanced. Stress is depleting. I can’t give you a massage but the nature visuals and music may help. I won’t tell you to breathe but that sure does help. Even a little sigh will do!

There has been no guidance from the state medical board specifically for massage therapists yet, however, given practical and ethical concerns, I have chosen to close my massage practice for at least two weeks to help support everyone staying safe and at home. It is not worth the risk as you and everyone we know is important to me. Life is sacred and it’s a sacrifice we all have to make for the greater good. I appreciate your support and I will update you when it is safe again to return to practice. I’m sure we will all need some human touch when we get through this!!!


I am open for business as long as you and I are not sick and we both follow protocols for preventing illness! Thank you for you business!!!


Precautions I always make as Massage Therapist:
1) sanitize common areas with Clorox wipes before/after
2) bleach sheets 3) wash hands before/after 4) ask clients to stay home if have communicable illness


I have massage openings this Wednesday daytime and Friday morning if anyone wants massage therapy. 60-90 minutes!

Oprah Winfrey talks with Thich Nhat Hanh Excerpt - Powerful aside from massage I teach yoga and meditation as well as Ayurvedic counseling. I have many wonderful teachers and what connects them all is compassion and spirituality. One of my very first teachers on my path at 19 was Thich Nhat Hanh. While looking for books on herbal remedies I found his book ‘peace is every step’ mixed in. The dandelion on the cover called to me and forever changed the direction of my life. I hope he continues to inspire others that are familiar or new to his teachings.

Fennel: Getting to Know Your Herbal Allies

I have been enjoying toasted fennel seeds for awhile now and since my cleanse even more. Check out the history and healing properties of fennel:

As an herb with a long, rich history of culinary use, fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) doesn’t need much introduction. With a nutty, sweet flavor reminiscent of licorice or anise, and its strong, slightly sweet fragrance, fennel seeds have been a favorite ingredient in cuisine for centuries... But hav....

The Right Exercise Can Lengthen Your Telomeres | John Douillard's LifeSpa

People have often said I look younger than I am. I spent a lot of time doing yoga, meditation, nasal breathing and eating vegetarian food in my late teens and twenties. Could this be part of the reason why? Did you ever read the Delany Sisters book ‘Having Our Say’? They started yoga in their 60’s and lived to be into their hundreds, the oldest living to be 109! I am sure genes and other factors contribute but what if we can maximize our time and and stretch those telomeres and the time we have left in this body?

I am up for trying a little more! How about you?

What Type of Exercise Should I Do? New research once again points to health and longevity benefits of endurance exercise compared to resistance training. Now, no one is suggesting resistance (weight) training is in any way harmful— numerous studies tout its many health benefits, as they do with an...

If you live in #NorthAmerica or #SouthAmerica, or parts of Europe, Asia and Africa, the total lunar eclipse is visible tonight.
In the US, we have been going through an intense time with the government shutdown, political divide, racial tensions, feelings of us vs. them, etc.
Let's use this heightened energy to pray for something powerful and uplifting. Rather going outside, stay inside and GO inside yourself.
The #lunarecipse is happening in a star that has to do with nurturing and is very powerful for spiritual practices.
Let's co-create change collectively all over the world.
Here are some specific recommendations:

Om shanti shanti shanti


A friend forwarded this to me. pass it on:

On the dawning of the New Year,
I would like to ask for your help.

For the sake of us all.

You see, each year at this time,
we have a special opportunity.

There’s something about the psychology
of a new beginning that enables us to tap
a resolve that somehow escapes us the
rest of the year.

And I would like to work together with you,
to harness this special power...

For a common good.

Using kindness.

Please. Be kind.

Be kind to your friends.
Be kind to your family.
Be kind to strangers.
Be kind to yourself.
Be kind to those who love and support you.
Be kind to those who seem to be against you.

Please. Be kind.

Here’s why:

In each and every moment, we are creating.
We are creating the world in which we live.


And sadly, many of us are doing so without ever
asking the most critical of questions:

“What kind of world do I wish to live in?”

As a result, a myopic and dangerous obsession
with me and mine has seeped into our consciousness.

One that has spawned a culture permeated by a host
of poisons that none of us wish to live amidst.

Things like…


All seem more prevalent than ever.

It’s all so very unnecessary.
And most tragic of all, nobody wins.


And this why I’d like to join with you.

In rising up.
In solidarity.
To stand for the kind of world we do wish to live in.

A world of understanding.
A world of compassion.
A world of love.
A world where each of us does our best to help everyone around us.
A world where we are all nourished and nurtured and honored.

All the time.

Just imagine!

Now, I understand, it may at times seem futile...

The wheels of fear and greed and hatred
seem to roll on with such indomitable force.


Together, we are so much more powerful than all of that.
Together, we can unleash a seismic shift that changes the world.
Together, we can create a planet brimming over with love and kindness and beauty.

So please join me.
Starting now.
Be kind.

Be kind in this moment.

And this one.
And this one
And this one.
And again.

In this one.

Be kind to those who seem to deserve it.
Be kind to whose who don't seem to deserve it.

It will cost you nothing.
It will reward you with everything.


I'm wishing you a year overflowing with wonder...
and abundance
and happiness
and health
and so much more.

(and I'm here to help you make that a reality in any way I can).

Love, love, and more love!

Happy New Year

How are those New Years Resolutions working out for everyone? Did you see the study that said January 12th is the Day most people give up on their resolutions or whatever you may choose to call them!!!

Have no fear!!! According to Ayurveda this is Kapha time!!!
That translates, in some ways, as hibernation time. Innately this is not the time of year (truthfully) to be making those big changes and that’s why typically only little changes work for most people.

Kapha is ruled by still, slow cold water and earth and can be a stubborn time for the body and mind to make such big changes because, for most of us, it is not the natural cycle to get moving and active. The cold and still of winter is upon us. We are naturally gaining more than losing weight, for one because it’s cold and our bodies are telling most of us that this is what it is supposed to be doing. I am not saying become the potato and binge on potato chips and don’t get off the couch. I suggest that we should be kind and understanding of and with our bodies.

So really, don’t feel bad. Our bodies naturally want to shed fat and detox and become more active when spring is closer and things are finally dethawing outside (as without so within!!!)

I will suggest one thing you can change though, coming in for more regular massages. I have hot stones and warm oil and a heated bed waiting to help encourage you through the new year without the stress of major or unreasonable daily habit changes. (Not that I want to discourage anyone from following through with exercise, yoga or resolutions but, don’t be too hard on yourself or go to much against the slow flow.)

I have a wonderful one time-last time deal for bulk massages for you and the family.
12 massages for $500. That is $45 each for an hour. It is the last time I will be offering this special special. You have one year to use them. This generous offer expires the end of January 2019 and will melt like the snow. (Note a small fee if you buy this on c.c., so check/cash best).

Normally massages are $60/hour. 90 minutes $90.

In love and gratitude

Happy new year!!! In some ways a new year is arbitrary given we can start again at any moment any time of the year however what I personally love about new year is the momentum, the hope and intention individuals from around the world give it. We can energize the new year simply with our intention and attention and focus!!! Wow! Let’s start the year off with some self care. Come in for those yearly, quarterly, monthly and even weekly massages you have promised yourself to get year after year and didn’t follow through with. It is never to late ever and since the momentum is at hand let me help you with my healing hands!!! 330-940-9629 looking forward to helping you achieve some self care goals for this new year of transformation!


!January special special!I am constantly amazed and grateful that the work I do makes a difference in people’s contentment levels. To see someone walk in burdened with physical discomfort and or tension and stress riddled throughout their facial expressions and then walk away with less or no pain or a relaxed smile on their face is so rewarding. I am pleased that people get to walk away carrying the rewards of my hard labor and human touch!

I want everyone to start their new year with massages 💆🏼 with the dedication to their sacred vessel of the body and the precious mind and energy residing within with monthly massages.

This one time only special special special special is $500 for 12 sixty minute massages or 8 ninety minute massages. That’s $45/hour instead of the usual $60!!! That’s a molten hot hot hot special special!!

It is available only for the limited time of January 2019. You will not get this chance again!!!

It’s good for one year from purchase.

It can be paid with check or cash only. credit card can be done but there is a $20 charge for using plastic.

People haven’t asked much but did you know I offer massage packages for frequenters.

3 one hour for $165
6 one hour for $300
4 ninety minutes for $300
Currently i have a 12 one hour or 8 ninety minute package I will no longer offer it after December 31, 2018.
Again! After January 1, 2019 I will no longer offer the $500 12 one hour or 8 ninety minutes massage deals so if you want that for the new year or a gift this is last chance. After that it is $600.


I still have gift certificates for massage available. If you feel awkward just handing a certificate by itself for $10 more you can pitch in a massage oil or oil blend or castor oil pack. That’s $70 for a massage and a little self care oil of your choice while supplies last lol. Choice of oils as follows: castor oil pack starter, Krishna blue, Himalayan Forest, Masala chai, Mahanarayana, sesame, sunflower, coconut or neem all in 4 oz bottles. Normally i charge 15-20 for the fancy oils but i am making the gift have a special and personalized touch depending on your needs and desires.

Gift certificates alone: $60 hour, $90 hour and half. They are good for a year and I customize every massage depending on requests and therapeutic needs.

Many of you are healthy and spiritual types. Please check out my friends website for jewelry with intention. She broke her arm and can not easily get to her seasonal shows for a few more weeks. You may find a gem of a gift from her:


The family and students at sacred ground are so fabulously awesome. I met some new amazing people and some old friends too when I subbed on Tuesday. I am honored and delighted to substitute one more class this week. Tomorrow, Thursday at Sacred Ground Barberton 930am.


Just gave an emergency client a massage suffering from lower back pain upon rising, standing and walking. Did gentle stretching with trigger points and used castor oil and mahanarayana oil on problematic areas using hot stones to rub and press the healing oils in. Client stood up without pain and walked away without pain. That is what a I call a good day at the office.
