Thank you for checking out M.C.'s Healing Arts!
I do not believe that healing and bodywork should be a "one size fits all" approach. Every person has their own unique thing going on, and therefore, I feel that an integrative approach to each individual is important. I enter a session with an open mind and heart, and by doing so, I get a sense for what can be applied to each person in order to enhance the healing potential.
Through my work, I believe my purpose is to help facilitate space to allow others to heal through relaxation, therapeutic touch, movement, and cultivating mindfulness. Through continuous studying and practice, I feel that I have developed a keen sense of observation, intuition and body awareness that is effective in my approach to working with others.
Whatever type of session you choose to receive, I like to sprinkle in other types of therapeutic techniques to help support a holistic approach to mind-body wellness. I believe this creates a really well-rounded journey for each person.
I have recently completed a 700hr training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with the Giving Touch School of Massage in Grand Junction, Colorado, and am a Registered Therapist through the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America. I am really honored to be sharing this gentle yet profound modality with my clients.
I completed Massage Therapy school in the Fall of 2016 through the U.S. Career Institute in Fort Collins, Colorado, and started training in Thai Massage shortly afterwards through the Thai Massage Institute in Denver, Colorado. Massage therapy is a path that I had been wanting to dive into for many years, and am so happy to be able to focus on it as part of my career.
I discovered yoga in 2006, and became certified to teach yoga in 2008 through Sunstone Yoga in Texas. Since then, I have taken many different workshops and trainings and really enjoy studying numerous styles of yoga. I love sharing the benefits of yoga with others and find my knowledge gets inter-twined with the other modalities that I offer.
No matter if it's a one time session you are treating yourself to, or if you are hoping to focus on healing a chronic condition through several sessions, I would be delighted to work with you!

you touch everything."

Thai Massage w/Restorative Yoga
This complete session has evolved to include Thai Massage and supported restorative yoga poses with hands-on massage therapy. It incorporates traditional application of acupressure, joint mobilization, rhythmic rocking, assisted stretches and restorative poses with the use of props. I use this combination to create an invigorating and balancing experience. It's great for stress relief and releasing tension in the whole body to help the client feel completely relaxed. It is beneficial to those who find themselves stiff, sore, and tired from over-exertion in work, sports, outdoor activities, or life.
By encouraging lymphatic function, this massage can also help detoxify the body, heighten the immune system, and prevent disease and/or injury by promoting flexibility. It's unique style and graceful movements bring well being to both the practitioner and the client. This session is done on a mat on the floor and the client is wearing comfortable clothing throughout the entire session.
This is a type of massage that is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and focuses on working with the internal organs and abdominal area. It is known to help cleanse and balance the energy of the organs, while helping to remove emotional/physical blockages and increase circulation.
The abdominal area is exposed and a variety of gentle and firm techniques are applied that focus on the entire area in general and on each individual organ. This is a very soothing and powerful treatment, as this is an area that we hold a lot of tension, but doesn't tend to get focused on during a regular massage. I offer this treatment in combination with table massage.

Therapeutic Table Massage
For each integrative therapeutic massage, my approach here is to listen to your needs and adapt each session to maximize the desired outcome. It can be a nice relaxing session to help relieve tension, or one with more pressure involved for some deeper release work. It really tends to be a combination of the two in order to create an experience that brings relaxation to the body and mind and helps release tension to a focused group of muscles. I tend to use a variety of techniques that I find very beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
I also offer prenatal massage for expecting mothers. I use the Earthlite Pregnancy Cushion, which allows women of all stages of pregnancy to be comfortably supported while getting to lay facedown. This cushion also offers a nice inclined support to be on your back as well. A nice treat for those in the later stages of their pregnancy! This creates optimal access and ability to really help bring relaxation, relief and circulation to sore muscles and tightness caused by the changes happening to the body during your special time.
Therapeutic Massage Add-ons
Hot Stones- heated smooth river rocks are a great add-on to any table massage treatment. The hot stones melt away tension and the heat penetrates sore muscles to help them relax, allowing the body and mind to release stress.
Cupping Therapy- cupping therapy is an ancient healing technique that uses suction with silicone or plastic cups. When applied to a "problem" area, such as shoulders/back/hips, the cups help to increase circulation, elasticity, and lymph drainage and can bring great relief to muscle tension. It is a great therapy to add to any table massage.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) has it's foundations in osteopathic medicine and is a gentle non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. It is very beneficial in helping to release held trauma that can be stored in a person's system. In the most basic sense, it is a therapeutic practice where a trained practitioner uses their hands to tune in and feel the natural rhythm of the client's central nervous system in order to stimulate healing. We are able to listen to the inner workings of the craniosacral system (the system comprised of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding both the brain and spinal cord), and can tap into the tide-like rhythms of it as well as the inherent intelligence of the body. This helps the practitioner to be able to recognize where the expression of health may be flowing and where there are patterns of restriction or congestion.
In BCST, we believe that health is never lost no matter what the ailment, and we bring our awareness to the “always available health" in a person's system. This allows the body to deeply relax, creating more balance in the energetic, emotional and physical body. This modality allows therapeutic change to happen at a deeper level, which creates more permeating results. Clients tend to feel very rested and centered after a session, with a greater sense of balance, wholeness and wellbeing.
The list of conditions which respond favorably to BCST is long, as they can be physical, emotional or spiritual in origin. Some of them are:
*Migraine and Headaches *Chronic Neck and Back Pain *Motor-Coordination Impairments
*Colic *Central Nervous System Disorders *Orthopedic Problems
*Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries *Spinal Cord Injuries *Scoliosis
*Infant Disorders/Birth Trauma *Learning Disabilities *Chronic Fatigue
*Emotional Difficulties *Stress and Tension-Related Problems *Post-Surgical Dysfunction *Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders *Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
* Neurovascular or Immune Disorders *Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
