Like the ocean, life can be calm or rough. But even rough waters don’t last. Eventually those rough waters smooth out and once again the water is calm. Though these rough times are usually not permanent, the more support we have during these difficult circumstances provides us a better ability to cope.
Introducing Compassionate Care.
Compassionate Care is an adjunct to clinical or medical care and is to help enhance the body’s immune response by lowering the levels of stress hormones that create the “fight-or-flight” response, and is intended to boost the “feel good” neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, endorphins and oxytocin. Compassionate Care is a wellness approach to help those with varying levels of compromised health and vitality. Because the rough waters are temporary, these services are considered short term.
Who qualifies for Compassionate Care Treatments?
Anyone who feels that their health or vitality is in a compromised state.
What are some examples of people with compromised states of health and vitality?
Though there are no limitations on our suffering, some examples include those going through cancer treatment, post traumatic stress disorder, grieving the loss of a loved one, being a caregiver to a sick or dying loved one, or divorce. Though these are just examples, if you feel your health or vitality are in a compromised state, you qualify.
How long can I enjoy the benefits of Compassionate Care?
There are no limitations on how long or how often you would like to receive Compassionate Care Services. Compassionate Care is based on an honor system. You are welcome to enjoy these services until you feel your health and vitality restored.
How long are services?
Services are 60 minutes long and are intended to encourage relaxation and provide a sense of wellbeing.
Is there a cost for Compassionate Care services?
Yes, there is a cost associated with Compassionate Care services. My practice is not registered with the government as a not-for-profit agency, therefore there is a cost to these services, but because of my passion and dedication for helping others, the costs of these treatments are dramatically reduced to help you in your time of need. The cost of each service is the same, $65.

TRE Tension/Trauma Release Exercises
TRE is a series of simple movements to turn on the natural human shaking response that signals a return to safety and calm. By activating this therapeutic tremor, there is usually no need to actually talk about the original stress to achieve lasting, positive results. The TRE® mechanism, or shaking ability, exists in all mammals and humans. It is the body's most organic and natural way of unravelling contracted or tight stress patterns, as well as reducing the charge of stress hormones and unhealthy chemical build up, bringing the body back to homeostasis. (Up to two persons) 60 minutes
*Please note that if you currently have a systemic illness, a note will be required from your doctor authorizing massage.
