* My studio is a comfortable, safe place for you to let go and receive healing in the best way that you need.
Ensoflow = To Make the Flow of energy WHOLE.
Ensoflow shiatsu is a profound mix of Eastern energetic movement and Western structural massage for therapeutic benefit and deep relaxation.
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.
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.
In any Ensoflow shiatsu session I do pull from other modalities such as cranio-sacral therapy, reflexology, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. I also include Chi Nei Tsang (profound five element organ massage).
My favorite sessions are energetically intensive 90 minute sessions where SO MUCH energy can move, but I also really enjoy working on chronic pain and structural issues as well and am very effective !

First, the wood meridians LOVE movement.
In fact, they rule movement, or what we like to call the “smooth flow of QI in the body.” When this Qi gets stopped up, or “stagnant” certain unwelcome symptoms may appear, including: frustration, irritability, anger, rage, mood swings, workaholic tendencies, difficulty digesting fats, cramps and difficulties around menstruation, insomnia due to pent up physical energy, and hip-leg-and low back pain. So your first plan for spring is to MOVE! Get out in the garden, get out and take a walk everyday, run, hike, workout, dance , sing, and PLAY.
Second, start eating the foods that are RISING during this time.
After the dormant winter, nature’s wood energy starts producing the early spring plants like dandelion, lettuces, green herbs, artichoke, asparagus, peas, and chicory. All the young spring greens have a cleansing effect on the WOOD organs, but in particular, DANDELION is wonderful liver detox and nurturing medicine, and ARTICHOKE has a cleansing and moving effect on the gallbladder. Add some butter or olive oil with LEMON (also cleansing to the liver)

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.”
