  • Energy Healing

    In-person and remote sessions

    Physical, mental and emotional forces block the flow of energy. Shanna serves as a mirror, helping her clients gain insight into the what, why, and how of restrictive patterns which inspires the body and mind to transform. Shanna helps by concentrating life force energy (aka chi or prana) where change and recovery is needed. At times there may be no improvement in physical health, yet a positive mental and emotional state can help us accept our experience and even bring us greater joy.

    As a Reiki Master, Shanna utilizes the support of ancient knowledge in order to best serve her clients. Founded by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in 1922, Reiki has been known to reduce stress and promote healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Shanna also draws from Polarity Therapy techniques, which utilize the science of stimulating and balancing the flow of energy. She offers a unique blend of energy healing therapies in order to address your specific needs. Book an in-person session on Maui or a remote healing session via Zoom.

    Advanced CranioSacral Therapy

    makawao location

    outcall available for a fee

    CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on manual therapy that helps to revitalize the fluid system of the body. By encouraging the healthy flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the craniosacral system, this comprehensive modality aims to calm the nervous system and encourage the body to recover from stress, injury and disease. Developed in the 1970's by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, CranioSacral Therapy helps to activate the body's innate healing mechanism which brings the body into balance and alignment. CST naturally incorporates Myofascial and SomatoEmotional Release techniques which address the root causes of pain and suffering.

    Intuitive Healing Classes & Workshops

    Ignite self-healing

    then help others

    In response to fulfilling her clients' requests to understand and apply what they receive during their sessions, Shanna developed an 'Intuitive Healing' curriculum designed to equip people with tools and techniques to break free from restrictions and to live in a state of surrender.


    Everyone is blessed with the ability to harness and direct life force energy. Shanna's one-on-one and group classes provide you with powerful self-care techniques and tools to support others, on or off-table as well as on or off-body. If you are a beginner or advanced bodyworker, Shanna's curriculum may boost your confidence and broaden the spectrum of your offerings. Deeply grateful to draw upon CranioSacral Therapy and her own version of Energy Medicine, she finds great pleasure in offering such teachings.

  • About Into the Healing

    Faced with physical and environmental stresses as well as family and financial responsibilities, we may find ourselves coping instead of enjoying the day. We need healing, whether it is from a physical trauma, negative emotion, or limiting thought. What does it mean to heal? Although recovering from injury, illness, or disease is quite a feat, Shanna believes the ultimate attainment is to sustain a peaceful mind through the pains of life.


    Dealing with chronic nightmares and traumas accumulated throughout lifetimes, Shanna sought professional support. While living in Santa Cruz, California, she received a series of CranioSacral Therapy sessions that helped her spring back from chronic headaches and long-held stresses. Although she paused her career as a massage therapist to pursue other endeavors, CranioSacral Therapy gave her a reason to return to the healing arts. She began her studies with the Upledger Institute and continues to take advanced level courses as well as to serve as an assistant teacher. 


    With over 20 years of professional experience, Shanna offers an intuitive blend of mostly light but sometimes deeper pressure techniques which support the body and mind connection in order to heal itself. In 2019 she became a Reiki Master and now offers Energy Healing as the foundation to all her offerings.

  • FAQ

    Healing is Our Evolution

    What does a typical session look like?

    • Consultation Time-The first part of the session includes an intake and consultation which acknowledges your current state of being and helps Shanna to assess how she can best support your wellbeing
    • Table Time-As you comfortably recline face-up (typically for entire session) on a massage table, Shanna continues the session with a focused intention to support your highest good. A CranioSacral Stillpoint Technique is offered to calm and balance the nervous system and jumpstart your self-healing mechanism. Tuning in to your body wisdom, she intuitively assesses your priority needs and implements subtle yet sometimes deep touch to release restrictions and improve wellbeing.
    • Integration & Conclusion-As your body integrates positive changes, Shanna gently guides you to return to the present setting of the room. She includes time to share about the experience, to answer questions, and to allow you to ground and hydrate before you leave.

    What are potential results from this therapy?

    Although Shanna does not guarantee any results from her therapy and is not a substitute for proper medical attention, she has received feedback from her clients reporting their experience of positive changes including:

    • Pain Relief & Ease of Symptoms
    • Clearance of Brain Fog
    • Healthy Immune Function

    • Recovery from illness, injury, trauma
    • Spinal Alignment & Increased Mobility
    • Confidence & Sense of Purpose
    • Heightened Intuition
    • Feeling lighter & more Joyous

    Is it normal to feel sensations such as pain, illness, soreness, fatigue, & heightened emotions during & after a session?

    • Your body's healing mechanism becomes activated during a session and the therapuetic process continues after a session. Although there may be initial discomfort as the body releases physical and emotional tensions, your body intuitively moves toward health and natural alignment
    • Our body stores the energetic impact of past traumas and injuries into its cell structures and develops compensation patterns to support itself. When negative imprints are released, you may experience pain or discomfort in other regions of the body, perhaps where pain never existed. 
    • As tissues unwind and release, trapped emotions may surface and a  SomatoEmotional Release process begins.
    • If relief doesn't occur within 3 or 4 days, or if pain feels unbearable, please call for a follow up session or referral

    How can I make the most out of a session?

    • Ask for what you need ie...blanket, pillows, tissue, less or more pressure, touch or no touch in a specific area, bathroom break etc.
    • Feel free to ask questions and express what feels natural. You may wish to share memories, images, thoughts, and epiphanies. You may desire to move your body and express yourself through sound. You may experience heightened awareness or enter a meditative and dream-like state. Perhaps being silent for the session is your best medicine
    • Twitching, gurgling, burping, sneezing, coughing etc are all signs energy is moving
    • Allow yourself to observe pleasant and unpleasant body sensations from a neutral perspective
    • Trust in your healing process
    • Avoid scheduling work or other appointments after a session. You may wish to walk and unwind before driving. You may want to go home and sleep.

    How many treatments will I need?

    • Every individual is unique and responds to Shanna's sessions differently. Although you may experience a positive shift from one session, Shanna recommends her wellness programs to achieve sustained results. 
    • The effects of Shanna's sessions tend to be cumulative, meaning one ​treatment builds upon the next. It takes time for the body to integrate healthier ways of being. 
    • After receiving a foundational or comprehensive series, monthly or bimonthly maintenance may serve your wellbeing

    How can I best prepare for the session?

    • Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended. Since, with your permission, Shanna may use techniques that require her to place a hand under your sacrum, she asks that you refrain from wearing a skirt or garments with buttons or metals.
    • Please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne as Shanna is allergic
    • Inform Shanna of allergies or special needs at time of booking
    • Refrain from being under the influence of intoxicating substances
    • Drink plenty of electrolyte- enhanced water to flush out extra waste and lessen side-effects of detoxification
    • Eat at least 1-2 hours before a session so you are neither hungry nor too full
    • Consider results you aim to achieve. Clarify an intention you wish for Shanna to help you support
