I have updated my hours of availability on Thursdays as of August 3, 2017. I will be providing massage for guests at Caring House in Durham where I will be working with cancer patients and their caregivers. I love all my clients but this group of people hold a special place in my heart since I've been where they are now.
I completed the Spirit of Learning course and wow did I learn a lot about myself in addition to learning about teaching. As an extension of that course I will be taking Somatic Education Leadership later this year.

Since the last news I've completed an additional course in lymphatic massage titled "Working with a Compromised System". Now better able to work with those who have their lymphatic system compromised.
I am also enrolled in a program called "The Spirit of Learning". Although I don't know if I will actually teach massage but I feel this will help me in working with all people.

In my work with oncology clients I find many with lymphedema. In order to better assist these people, I completed a 3 day continuing education course entitled "Lymph Massage: Protocol for Detoxification and Minor Pathologies". What wonderful work. I learned that there are other medical conditions other that lymphedema that can be helped by lymph massage. The training was based on the Vodder technique.

In February of this year I began to work as a provider with Cornucopia Cancer Support Center in Durham, NC. I work there on the first and third Thursdays of each month giving massage to their participants which include people with cancer and their caregivers. I feel this is an awesome opportunity to be able to give relief to those who are touched by the various forms of this disease.

I forgot to post in advance but now I would like to say I had a wonderful time providing chari massage for those at the NAMI NC Conference last weekend.
I am also working on my first newsletter and hope to get it emailed out by the end of the month. I have "subscribed" all my current and past clients as well as those who said yes to the mailing list at chair massage events. You may also sign up yourself from HERE.

I am happy to announce that I am now Certified in Integrative Reflexology®. I just love hands on classes where I get to feel the effects of the bodywork I am learning. Reflexology alone can have some powerful effects. I will most likely be adding some amount of this work with all massage sessions. I will also offer Integrative Reflexology® on it's own as well.
I am also now adding Reiki Healing sessions to my practice as well. Reiki is a Japanese based technique accessing a universal life force energy. Reiki is good for stress reduction, relaxation, and general life balance.
As of this time these sessions will be charged at the same hourly rate as a massage.

The Rock for Hope event was fantastic.
