Welcome to Joyful Healing Arts!  This is a safe place to unwind, relax and let go of the daily stresses of life.  Please take off your shoes, take some deep breaths and feel your body sinking into the massage table.  This is your time to fully relax.  Open your heart, drift off to the music and feel your fascia unwinding and your muscles loosening.

Our bodies are miraculous creations.  Our fascia interconnects every muscle and fiber in our body.  However, because of stress in our environment, sometimes our fascia gets tightly wound and our muscles become knotted.  I'm here to intuitively find those knots and gently guide your body to unwind your fascia.  My goal is to bring your being back to centeredness, joy and wholeness.  That is why I named my business Joyful Healing Arts.  I want you to get enough bodywork that you feel more joy every day in your body!  I want your aches and pains to melt away and for you to have more joy to do the things you love and care about.

All craniosacral and massage sessions are equal prices, include tax and can be blended craniosacral with massage therapy. In addition, all sessions can conclude with a customized sound therapy bath which may include voice, singing bowl, or reverie harp.  Allow my intuition to decide which customized body treatment is optimal for you.  Welcome to Joyful Healing Arts!

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.

- Lao Tzu 



Therapeutic Massage

Let your muscle pains and tensions melt away with a relaxing oil massage.  Each session is intuitively designed to rejuvenate and renew.  

Craniosacral Therapy

Light touch, clothing on bodywork that helps unwind fascia and helps the cerebral spinal fluid to connect the sacrum with the cranium.  It is very beneficial for ear problems, neck issues, TMJ, headaches, and so much more!

Postpartum Doula Services

I provide in home help to new families.  This includes holding the baby so the parents can get a break, cooking nutritious meals, providing light house work, breastfeeding support and helping out with other siblings. I also can offer craniosacral therapy for an extra charge.

Placenta Encapsulation

The placenta is full of vitamins and minerals and is perfect for helping new moms feel their best self!  I lovingly dehydrate your placenta and encapsulate the powder into easy to swallow pills.  Finally I shape the umbilical cord into a keepsake heart.

"I recently had some body work and energy work done by Alexandra. She has a gentle compassionate touch and channels the Angelic Light well. She helped me move some energy out that was stuck behind my heart chakra. I would definitely recommend her."-Michele D.
