    Whether it is a physical, emotional and/or a mental challenge, we all seek relief. Shanna channels life force, or cosmic energy, where healing is needed, referring to herself as a 'facilitator' or 'director of energy'. Although most of us share the goal to recover from injury, illness, or disease, we are at the mercy of divine timing. Meanwhile, the ultimate attainment is to sustain a peaceful mind throughout the tidal waves of life. Shanna helps ease your mind, soothe your nerves, and harmonize the nurturing and cleansing water system within your body.

    CranioSacral Therapy

    CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on manual therapy that balances and revitalizes the fluid system of the body. Developed in the 1970's by Osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, CST encourages the healthy flow of cerebrospinal fluid within the hydraulic chambers of the spine. As the nervous system is lullabied into a parasympathetic calm, the body innately recovers from stress, injury and disease. CST naturally incorporates Myofascial and SomatoEmotional Release techniques which address the root causes of pain and suffering.

    Energy Healing

    Utilizing the ancient wisdoms of Meditation, Reiki, and Meridian Stimulation, Shanna uses her body like a magnet, pooling lifeforce through the instrument of her body and delivering it to the areas of your body that need clearance, healing and rejuvenation. Lifeforce, or energy from the source of creation, is made up of life-trons that fuel every cell of every organism in the universe. With compassion and care, Shanna supports your wellbeing with a unique blend of therapies, customizing each session to meet your specific needs on any particular day. In-person and remote tune-up sessions are available.

    Classes and Workshops

    In response to fulfilling her clients' requests to understand and apply what they receive during sessions, Shanna developed an 'Intuitive Healing' Curriculum to equip people with self-healing techniques and the skills to support others on their healing journey, on or off-table as well as on or off-body, including remotely. She offers one-on-one and group classes. 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 Energy Healing techniques, she finds great pleasure in sharing the wisdom of these powerful methods.

    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
    • Deep Relaxation & Peace of Mind
    • 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 is activated during a session and the therapuetic process continues afterward. Although there may be initial discomfort as the body releases physical and emotional tensions, your body intuitively moves toward health and natural alignment. If relief doesn't occur within 3 or 4 days after treatment, please call for a follow up session or referral
    • Our body stores the 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

    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. When challenging emotions surface, witness them as a gift, providing the opportunity for acceptance, growth and renewal.
    • 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 once per week until there is relief from acute or chronic pains. Thereafter, monthly or bimonthly maintenance may serve your wellbeing
    • 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

    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 (aka tailbone), 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
