Reiki-Ma Healing Therapy
Reiki is an ancient laying on of hands touch healing system. All living things are made of energy. This energy is our life force. In Japan the energy is termed Ki. It is from this word Reiki is named. Reiki energy heals the whole person and acts on many levels; emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. All of us have this energy within us. We hold the power to heal ourselves. Reiki sessions open up a person's chakras and allow the energy to run freely again through the body. Most people experience Reiki healing as very relaxing, warm and comforting. Reiki energy acts in subtle yet powerful ways to allow a person to heal themselves.

Reiki-Ma focuses on awakening the bodies own inner healing ability. Reiki means "life energy" and "Ma" is derived from the concept of "self" or "Goddess within". Reiki-Ma incorporates energy sensing, Chakra work and Reiki to tune in to your body and move towards a state of balance and wholeness.

Reiki for Children and Women's Health
I have special interest in the use of Reiki specific to Children, Women's Health and the Childbearing years. Throughout my time working with women as a midwife, childbirth educator, and doua, I have explored the use and affects of Reiki during birth, pregnancy, fertility issues, menopause, premenstrual, with times of healing. Reiki treatments are wonderful for pregnancy and for healing with young children. I also teach private Reiki I classes for parents who would like to learn to use Reiki for themselves and their child.

Chakra Balancing
The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel or disk. There are seven basic energy centers in the body. Each of these energy centers also corresponds to a major nerve ganglia coming from the spinal column. Each chakra corresponds to different stages of development, levels of consciousness, bodily functions, colors and elements. Chakras are centers or "gates" where energy flows and receive life force energy in the body. When a chakra is blocked or wide open this can manifest as, or be a symptom of, a mental, emotional or physical imbalance. By working with the chakras we create healing and balance. Chakra balancing is done full clothed in a comfortable warm room.

Homeopathy is a gentle system of healing based on the principle that any substance that can cause an illness can also be a cure. Homeopathy strengthens the body's life force and reduces stress. Treatment involves giving very small doses of substances called remedies that would produce the same or similar symptoms of illness in healthy people if they were given in larger doses. Homeopathic practitioners select remedies according to a total picture of the patient, including not only symptoms but lifestyle, emotional and mental states, and other factors.
Treatment in homeopathy is individualized. This system of healing is based on observing the whole person and developing a symptom picture based on mental, emotional and physical symptoms. Through homeopathy a sense of well being and balance: physical, mental and emotional can be acheived.

Balance work & Yoga
Yoga postures, movements, balance exercises, and breathing help children and adults develop self-balance, posture, body awareness, and spatial orientation, all in a gentle fun way. One-on-one sessions build confidence and allow individuals to focus on their specific needs.

Homebirth Midwifery
My midwifery practice is based on the knowledge that birth is a sacred and natural process. Women already have the wisdom within them to give birth. Women can become empowered through birth. It is my belief that women give birth with their hearts and bodies NOT with their head. I strongly encourage and assist women to educate themselves about birth options and make choices based on their knowledge and intuition. I have been attending homebirths for the past 10 years and in private practice in the Pioneer Valley for the last 6. In addition to working in homebirth, I have also attended births at a Port Maria Hospital in Jamaica, in several free standing birth centers and practiced as a doula for 8 years. I also train and teach student midwives as the director and lead instructor of the WomanCraft Midwifery Program.
