What is Ensoflow Shiatsu?
Ensoflow shiatsu is a profound mix of Eastern energetic movement and Western structural massage for therapeutic benefit and deep relaxation. Shiatsu is a Japanese modality that has a threefold intention; 1) SUPPORT your core energy and vital force, 2) REMOVE any stressors or blocks to the full expression of your Vital Energy, and 3) RELAX the forces that you developed to deal with your original wounds.
Sound profound? Well it is. AND because this is experienced therapeutic bodywork; you don’t have to know any of this. What you need to know is that you will feel SUPPORTED and SAFE to let go and receive what it is that you need at the time of the session. Shiatsu is given traditional style on mat with bolsters with the receiver in comfortable clothing.
I came to Portland from NYC three years ago and am very excited to be offering my work to new clients. Ensoflow shiatsu does include other modalities such as cranio-sacral, reflexology, myofascial and trigger point therapy. I can treat injuries as well as general relaxation and chronic, hard to heal issues.
Ensoflow = To Make the Flow of energy WHOLE
My work is based on Five Element Shiatsu which attempts to open, release, and support the energetic flow of QI throughout your body. This is MASSAGE work; meaning that we will focus on your physical tensions. I look at the body through a structural AND energetic perspective. When you tell me about areas of holding tension and pain, my goal is to open those areas and allow blood to flow there to creating healing.
“Qi follows blood.” In traditional chinese medicine, Qi and Blood are the main factors in both health and dis-ease. When we open muscle tension and physical holding patterns, we also open the door for QI to flow throughout your body. When your QI is flowing, you will feel good and your body is able to create “homeostasis” which is a natural state of balance and health. Ensoflow shiatsu sessions result in that deep relaxed feeling that you experience after a good yoga practice or acupuncture session. And your body will continue the healing energy long after the session.
In every session, I will bring light (and ask you to bring breath) to the major areas calling for movement and release.
Depending on your needs and awareness in your own body, there are many other techniques and visualizations that we can do to help your body let go and heal.
Each session is unique and tailored to your specific needs and directed by where you want to go.
ENSOFLOW SHIATSU is:
Energetically Appropriate - I meet you where you are at and tailor the session to where you and your body want to go.
A Modern Take on Ancient Healing- Eastern Medicine and Five Element theory has been around for 5000 years!
Unlimited- The potential for healing is always based on our potential to open to it and receive energy.
Deeply Nourishing – Your body will receive presence and care in a way that will allow it to receive nourishment.
THANK YOU for visiting Ensoflow Shiatsu!

My favorite thing about this work is to listen to what you are asking for from a session, what your body is communicating with it’s symptoms, and the direction that your body wants to go once we start working. There is undoubtedly a transformation of energy that happens from the moment you walk into the studio, during the session once tension starts to let go, until that last moment when we have moved enough “stuff” so that I can sit with my hands on your head while you sit in calm meditation – feeling centered and calm in your body, safe in the universe, and nourished by the earth. This is the VIBRATION that I strive to find and share with you in Ensoflow Shiatsu.

Using Hydrogen peroxide in your ears is an amazing way to kick out a cold/flu/virus before it takes hold in your system. How does it work? Well according to the late Andreas Moritz, a renowned healer, colds/flus/viruses enter into the system through the EARS! So, adding peroxide to the ears can STOP these germs in their tracks and get it out of your system. The best time to do this peroxide trick is when you first notice any symptoms of a cold/flu/virus.
This involves you being a good health detective for your self and paying attention to your body. When a person first acquires a cold/flu/virus, symptoms like dry, scratchy throat, pain in the ears, headaches, stiff neck, fuzzy head, sniffles are all potential symptoms that your body is fighting something. If this is the case, try the peroxide trick and Don’t get sick!

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) is a centuries-old variety of healing touch therapy from China. It focuses on deep, gentle abdominal massage in order to “train” the internal abdominal organs to work more efficiently, which in turn is said to improve physical and emotional health. The words Chi Nei Tsang translate to “working the energy of the internal organs” or “internal organs chi transformation.”
