I am a healer in the truest sense of the word. I use a variety of styles of bodywork and energy work, counseling, hypnosis and yoga to help you heal physically, mentally and spiritually. My style of touch is nurturing, soothing, and deep on request. I use a table or mat and prefer to work at my West Village studio. I can help you to heal from injuries or just remove troubled knots. With craniosacral therapy (see below) we can work to balance your nervous system and release stress and illness. Or I can teach you to heal yourself through yoga postures, meditation, breathing exercises, chanting and deep relaxation. In addition I am a skilled spiritual counselor who can help you to remove core negative beliefs, phobias and mental and emotional blockages so that you can discover your true nature as an infinite, creative and loving being. Finally, I practice medical biomagnetism, a cutting edge system from Mexico for healing chronic and infectious diseases by balancing the pH of the body's tissues with medium intensity magnets.



Swedish / Deep Tissue combined with Thai Yoga (acupressure and passive stretching) with optional Reflexology and Neuromuscular Release or Barefoot Shiatsu
When your muscles are sore, tight or stiff, you have an injury or chronic pain, when you need lots of touch or when you need a full body makeover!

CranioSacral Therapy combined with Reiki energy work
When you are wanting to reduce your stress levels and heal your nervous system or immune system or when you are healing from wounds, surgery or illnesses and conditions discussed below.

SomatoEmotional Release
To remove emotional blocks stored in the body's tissues. This may include the energy "cysts" left behind by traumatic injuries sustained during accidents or physical attacks, sexual abuse, etc.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
(A type of behavioral kinesiology) helps to rid you of negative patterns, traumas and behaviors using a combination of affirmations, muscle testing, light tapping of acupressure points and neurolinguistic programming. It can clear mental, emotional, and spiritual blocks as well as money issues, relationship stress, and memories of abuse. It is useful with fear of public speaking, anxiety issues, school performance, self-esteem issues, weight problems, anger issues, sports performance and nightmares.

Private Yoga Lessons
Whether rigorous (ashtanga and vinyasa) or gentle and therapeutic (restorative) my lessons feature correct alignment in each pose, flow style sequencing for aerobic conditioning and detoxification, and strength building exercises to develop elastic muscles. I also teach meditation and breathing exercises to still the mind and purify the emotions, chanting to soothe the heart, and deep relaxation (yogic sleep) to bring the body and mind into perfect balance and overcome past conditioning, traumas and addictions or help you to recognize yourself as always connected to your inner source and ground of being.

Medical Biomagnetism and Applied Kinesiology
A revolutionary approach to fighting infections, parasites, gland syndromes and chronic illnesses (including diabetes, cancer and HIV) developed by Dr. Isaac Goiz Duran of Mexico. This technique of balancing the pH of the body's tissues using pairs of magnets of medium intensity can heal many mental and physical conditions without side effects (see below). By muscle testing the body during the session we determine where "polarizations" are occurring that correspond to places where pathogens are inhabiting the body. The magnets change the pH of those tissues, causing the pathogens to flee or die out in large numbers, allowing the immune system to do the rest of the work on its own. For more information please visit for English speakers and for Spanish speakers. During a session, we may additionally also ask questions about foods and supplements you might want to take or avoid, allergies you may have, the effects of particular pharmaceuticals on your health and much more!



CranioSacral Therapy is fast becoming one of the world's most powerful natural therapies and a ray of hope for patients everywhere searching for relief. Using a light touch, I can help to improve the functioning of your central nervous system, eliminate the negative effects of stress, strengthen your resistance to disease, and enhance your overall health. It is especially effective for treating:

*anxiety and depression *TMJ *chronic pain (especially back and neck pain) *arthritis *stress burnout *emotional disorders *systemic infections *general injuries *scoliosis *eye and ear problems *spinal chord injuries *neuritis *disability prevention *cerebral ischemic episodes (small strokes)

Reiki is hands on energy work to improve immune function, heal injury, reduce stress and reconnect you to your true nature. It can help heal addictions, emotional blocks and illnesses of all kinds, rebalance your chakras (energy centers) or just make you feel amazing! As a Reiki Master I have been empowered to send you high frequencies of healing energy that you will feel instantly.

CranioSacral Therapy and Reiki Energy can work synergistically to provide you with maximum relief from tension, imbalance, illness or negative emotion. SomatoEmotional Release work can be integrated into the session upon request. You will come off of my table feeling renewed and refreshed with your senses heightened and pain lessened. Usually repeat treatments are necessary for dealing with chronic or serious illnesses.
