Liberate your Body, ease your Mind and soothe your Soul
My intuition and hands are my beloved gifts. I am here to use them in serving others and find great joy and liberation in extending my gifts through sacred healing, somatic therapy, and bodywork as well as in creating art.
The intention of my therapeutic offerings, classes and workshops is to help you heal and discover yourself and to allow you to live with more comfort, ease, and freedom. I’m here to help you to awaken to and access the wisdom that is inherently alive in the your body.
Some of us use traditional talk therapy* to engage the mind, to search for insights and meaning through storytelling and talking. Your whole body is a storyteller and in talk therapy alone we can miss a great part of our own story.
My approach is holistic, connecting heart, mind, body and soul. The mind exists throughout the entire body. Your body is where your emotions exist, where your thoughts manifest, your soul rests and your wisdom births itself. Your body is a genuine resource, ally and guide and we must learn how to listen to it, learn from it and love it. We look to the body as a wise resource, ally, and guide. Your body has been your companion through all of life’s events and it knows in its muscles, nerve fibers - its very cells - the story of YOU.
I have a treasure chest of resources to offer which include a collection of somatic mind/body/spirit healing modalities. The word “somatic” is derived from the Greek word “soma” which means “living body.” In our journey together, you will gain an awareness of how to recreate the dynamic energy of the body; learning how manifestation of symptoms can occur due to repetitive stresses in our physical, mental and spiritual environments.
Somatic healing involves present-moment awareness and explores bodily tension, gestures, and sensations through a combination of awareness, dialogue, movement, and/or touch. By connecting and listening to the messages carried in the body, you will be guided to the choices that will support you in navigating with more ease and freedom in your life; reducing discomfort, strain, and stress in the body. This allows you to come to know yourself and meet your still point, that space of void within where all things are created and dissolved. You’ll learn how to transform negative physical and emotional experiences, creating a greater sense of Self, building resilience and offering hope.
*My offerings are not a replacement for medical intervention or psychological, psychiatric treatments. If you are under the care of a medical physician or in mental health therapy my treatments are a wonderful support to the work that you are engaged in.

“I’m a passionate healer with a simple approach to help you access the innate wisdom of your body and soul. I am dedicated to supporting you in your journey to know yourself and your unique rhythms and cycles that support healing from the core out.”
Christine has been studying anatomy, physiology and the bioenergetics of the human body for over 11 years. She has gained vast experience in her practice, working with diverse groups, ages and acute and chronic conditions.
Christine believes that the disconnection and separation in today’s world is a result of our disconnection with the Earth and her natural rhythms and cycles.
Christine’s work is supported by years of training and study in bioenergetics, craniosacral therapy, womb shamanism, psychology, trauma informed healing and holistic health. Our true and sustainable healing happens at a subconscious level (core healing) so if there is a struggle in any part of your life in this moment, connect with her to discover how her unique practices can provide a deep sense of ease, peace and healing.
Christine specializes in women’s holistic health, womb healing and spiritual wellbeing. She has led women’s red tents over the last three years supporting women in reconnecting to their sacred blood cycles and healing their relationship with sacred menstruation, a rite of passage that needs to be welcomed back into this world for our girls and women. Christine works with women who have suffered trauma, abuse, mother/sister wounds, fertility issues and she helps support women on their spiritual path in life, into Feminine Empowerment.
She is a Shamanic Feminine Artist creating art as medicine in the form of sacred weaving and sculpting with clay creating ceremonial womb bowls (a gift reclaimed through spiraling in the apprenticeship). She finds grounding and inspiration in nature, destinationless strolls through the forest, swimming in freshwater streams, lakes and rivers, conversing with my body and the trees, stones, winged ones and four leggeds, time communing with the earth in my her garden cultivating herbs and flowers - many of them used in her art and medicine making for herself and her family.
