Her approach to healing is a holistic one that merges the philosophies of the East and West. She looks at the Mind, Body and Spirit as a whole in order to address the root cause of discomfort instead of focusing on only treating symptoms.

These workshops consist of mini prenatal massage sessions or tutorials.
