*The first session devotes more time to intake. Long term results work best in successive sessions and with the active participation of the student.
The yoga therapy components of my teaching are based on my ongoing studies of Yoga Therapy through the school of Integrative Yoga Therapy and from other advanced training, not derived from my status as an RYT/E-RYT with the Yoga Alliance Registry.

Reiki & Aromatouch Technique
Reiki is a form of energy healing that can help alleviate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual stress. It is a way to ‘tune-up’ your energy to it’s healthiest state allowing for the healing to take place. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
The Aroma Touch Technique includes four primary steps designed to minimize systematic stressors to autonomic balance. Each step includes the application of two essential oils or essential oil blends specifically formulated to support healthy emotional and physiological functions for well-being.
Aroma Touch oils are applied using relaxing massage strokes covering the entire back, neck, earlobes, and feet. AromaTouch is very effective and can be added to any Reiki Healing session to provide a deep sense of relaxation, balance and overall well-being.
The steps and oils used
Stress Management (Balance & Calm) The AromaTouch™ Technique begins with dōTERRA®’s Balance Grounding Blend of spruce, rosewood, frankincense, and blue tansy followed by Lavender to support calming, de-stressing, and relaxation.
