Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon. With the sound of the river and the waterfall. With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds.

Heal yourself with mint, neem, and eucalyptus. Sweeten with lavender, rosemary, and chamomile.

Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a hint of cinnamon. Put love in tea instead of sugar and drink it looking at the stars. Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain.

Stand strong with your bare feet on the ground and with everything that comes from it. Be smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with your forehead. Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier.

Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember...you are the medicine.

~María Sabina

María Sabina Magdalena García was a Mazatec curandera, medicine woman and poet who lived in Huautla de Jiménez, a town in the Sierra Mazateca area of the Mexican state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico.

ABOUT

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I am a Doctor of Integrative Medicine, Board Certified Structural Integrator, Manual Osteopath and Structural Yoga Therapist. I have been practicing for over 27 years in the healing arts since 1996.

I am a graduate of Manual Osteopathy and completed my Doctorate of Osteopathy in January of 2024 after ten years of study with osteopaths.  My thesis is on Trauma Informed Osteopathic Approach: The Art of Listening and is available in my blog.

EXPERIENCE

I consider myself a Somatic Medicine practitioner offering an environment to dialogue and access the Soma (Greek derivation is "body") and Rewyld ourselves through a process of integration of wholeness.

My area of expertise is in working with individuals with birth and childhood trauma, chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, scoliosis, pre/postpartum care for moms, and Neurocomplex individuals.

My lineage of training draws on Manual Osteopathy through my trainings and certifications in Structural Integration, Craniosacral, Visceral, Neural and Myofascial Release.

I have over 7,000 hours in continuing education/training in my field. I have over 30,000 hours of teaching bodywork and movement in a university setting.

Please see Healing Philosophy and Structural Integration to deepen your understanding of my practice. I do not prescribe or support the use of drugs, pharmacology or vaccines as stated in the tenants of classic osteopathy. Nature is the cure and supporting the human body, mind and spirit in integration and natural movement to heal in the wholistic systems of the body--circulatory, nervous and fascial.
