TouchWorks
Ashland, OR

Welcome to TouchWorks. I hope our time together serves your personal development and health.

 

What is touchwork?

My work blends light-touch hands-on strategies from craniosacral and subtle-energetic therapies to help your natural self-healing resources to be active in you. My trust is that your underlying process will lead you in the direction you need to go. My job is to care for and facilitate—literally, to make easier—the process of healing and development that is already at work within you.

My practice is informed by the subtle energy therapies I have developed since 1983. While these subtle energy practices do not come with popular, recognizable names like Reiki or Polarity Therapy, they do partake of the same universal principles at work in the more familiar “brand name” approaches.

 

The other main stream of my work comes from my training and experience with Craniosacral Therapy and Zero Balancing®.

My work applies to a broad assortment of issues, including:

 

  • Recovery from illness and injury

  • Physical and emotional trauma

  • Processing life changes

  • “Jump-starting” meditative processes
