"Monica is committed to providing her patients with the highest standard of care based on an attitude of gentleness, compassion, loving kindness, professionalism and respect. Her ideal client is interested in investing in a partnership with a goal of improved health and quality of life."
"I am moved by each person's path to open to their own healing. It is a great privilege to act as facilitator, co-explorer, witness and partner in this endeavor. Using various schools and methods of acupuncture and its related practices (diagnosis via the senses, touch, moxibustion, cupping, guasha, plum blossom, essential oils, crystals, magnets) we arrive at an understanding of the body-mind pattern and its treatment. I often prescribe Chinese herbs to address acute and chronic patterns. Modalities are selected based on your sensitivities and needs, as well as the levels we choose to address in treatment."
"My goal in treatment is to help you find YOUR path to healing with a personalized treatment. I have learned that NO ONE is the same; you may have the same symptoms but each of our bodies are unique. The techniques I utilize are done to find the specific treatment modalities and acupuncture points that will resolve your specific concerns and help your body be brought into balance. I practice a combination of Japanese Kiiko style, Traditional Chinese Medicine, 5 Element and Trigger Point Acupuncture. I utilize a unique Japanese style which I learned from world renowned Master Kiiko Matsumoto."
"I believe in providing therapeutic massage to clients that are in pain or under stress. I give relief to my clients much in the same way massage therapy did for me. After breaking my neck, I found that before and after surgery, massage therapy made me human again. I also help those clients that just need to relax. I use a variety of Techniques (Swedish, Myofascial Release, Spa Massage, Deep Tissue, Accupressure, Shiatsu, Stretching, Manual Traction, Lymphatic Drainage, Trigger Point Release, Energy Work, Cross Fiber Friction, and Transverse Fiber Friction) to make my massages more therapuetic and clients feel better."
"A craniosacral journey with me is a unique blend of physical assessment, energetic work, intuitive insight, and psychological support. My purpose is to facilitate release of physical, mental and emotional holding so that you can fully express who you are meant to be in this world. I am a trained holistic therapist who specializes in traveling with you through life's wounds and discoveries, expanding on the natural urge toward aliveness. I have practiced healing bodywork for over 20 years with advanced clinical training and certification with the Upledger Institute, Milne's Visionary CST and Biodynamic CST with Frankly Sills."
