Katherine de Shazer, LMT, CLT, is  Board Certified by the National Certification Board for Massage Therapy and licensed by the State of Wisconsin. As a graduate of Blue Sky Professional School of Massage and Bodywork specializing in Medical Therapeutic Massage, Katherine’s work integrates several massage modalities based on an individual’s needs into a session. Continuing education certifications focus on cancer, mastectomy therapy, congestive lymphedema and outcome-based therapies.  Her commitment to assisting people making changes and taking charge of their health life is evident in her style of massage which increases body awareness and movement, reduces stress, improves the immune system, promotes relaxation, and reduces tension.

MODALITIES PRACTICED

Cancer, Mastectomy, and Lymphedema Therapy—
Massage and bodywork cannot cure cancer but it can offer greatly needed relief and enhance quality of life and make a significant contribution to your healing process. Katherine employs many different massage modalities including Congestive Lymphedema Therapy, to safely nurture the body, mind, and spirit of anyone dealing with cancer.

Therapy helps:

Reduce Scar Tissue
Increase Range of Motion and Mobility
Manage lymphedema
Relieve Pain
Reduce Stress
Provide Relaxation and Comfort
Minimize Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation
Boost Immune System
Assist in Lymph, Blood, and Oxygen Flow
Remove Toxins from Body without Liver Overload
Decrease Fatigue

Cranio Sacral Therapy—
Cranial Sacral or Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on healing practice that works with the central nervous system. Widely used by osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths, physiotherapists and massage therapists a light manual touch placed on the body helps to release restricted tissue and assists the body’s return to its natural healing ability. Clients dealing with migraines, headaches, TMJ Syndrome, neck and back pain, emotional issues and depression, chronic muscle and joint pain, as well as, many other conditions will benefit from this therapy. Clients are fully clothed and lie or sit in a comfortable position during this therapy.
Kinesio Taping or K-Taping—
K-Taping is placed on the affected body areas after a bodywork session.  K-tape affects several systems (circulatory/lymphatic, neural, muscular, and fascial, joints) by changing muscle and fascial tone and stimulating and increasing blood and lymphatic fluid flow.  The tape is made from cotton fiber and latex-free hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive that mimics the thickness and weight of skin.  K-Tape differs from athletic taping in that it allows a full range of motion (dependent upon physical condition) and is left on for any period of time needed.  K-Tape is available for purchase in the office. You will be instructed how to apply for your specific issue for use at home between office visits.
Medical or Therapeutic Massage Therapy–
Medical or Therapeutic  Massage Therapy is integrative outcome-based bodywork targeting  specific problem(s).  With your help we evaluate, test, and narrow in on the soft tissue causing the discomfort and plan a course of treatment. The integrative soft tissue modalities used in a session may include any of the following: Cranio Sacral, Medi Cupping, Kinesio Taping, Myofascial, Precision Neuromuscular Therapy, or Positional Release Therapy.  Unlike a spa massage this type of therapy requires your validation as we implement the treatment plan.  However, you should feel relaxed when finished with treatment.  Many conditions are helped with this approach: back and neck pain, chronic pain, sports injuries, pre and post surgery, scar tissue (new or old), arthritis, and many, many more.
Medi Cupping—
MediCupping Therapy is a vacuum therapy that uses plastic cups and a vacuum machine to create suction on the body surface. As the cup moves over the tissue surface, the practitioner uses various techniques to help mobilize joints and release soft tissue. This suction works to mobilize inflammation and toxins (cellular debris) to the lymphatic system for elimination. Adhesions of tissue (muscle, fascia, scar tissue, etc.) are mobilized using cupping enabling increased range of motion thereby decreasing discomfort and pain.  Cupping is used to help reduce the dimpling affect of cellulite.  Many other conditions are helped with MediCupping, such as, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, loose skin from weight loss, lymphedema, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, COPD, and more.
Myofascial Therapy—
Myofascial Therapy (MFR) treats the immobility of muscles by relaxing and improving the connective tissue called fascia.  Fascia is an elastic, supportive connective tissue that surrounds most structures in the body.  Like muscles it can become restricted from overuse, trauma, inactivity, etc.   MFR aids in the release of the connective tissue and stimulates the blood and lymphatic circulation to support natural body healing, increase range of motion and reduce associated muscle pain.
Precision Neuromuscular Therapy or PNMT/Positional Release Therapy or PRT—
PNMT and PRT are outcome-based soft tissue manipulation techniques that focus on the evaluation, testing and treatment of the muscles causing the pain.  These techniques require your feedback during treatment to hone in on the areas of concern.  As with the Medical/Therapeutic Massage you should feel relaxed at the end of the session.
Raindrop Therapy/Aromatherapy—
Raindrop Therapy/Aromatherapy is a healing technique using essential oils, reflexology techniques, massage and moist heat to restore the body’s balance and harmony mentally, physically and emotionally. It promotes the structural and electrical alignment of the body for renewed health. It is a detoxifying process that helps to fight bacteria and viruses, while improving the immune system. Raindrop Therapy is very relaxing, and rest is suggested following this one and half hour treatment. Conditions helped by Raindrop Therapy include energy fatigue; depression and emotional issues; arthritis and fibromyalgia, colds and flu, immune system deficiency, body pain and inflammation. Raindrop Therapy serves to detox the body, improves Lymph System circulation, as well as, promotes and restores healthy cells and all over balancing of the body.

Crystal Healing

Maria Giordano, is a graduate of the Free Spirit School in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Maria established Healing Hands Integrated Energy Therapy in 2009 and  has studied crystal healing and Reiki I & II.  She continues to expand her knowledge of therapies to help her clients.

Healing Hands Integrated Energy Therapy uses the ancient healing techniques of Reiki, using the “life force energy” to heal by balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words “rei and ki” meaning universal life energy.

Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. Your Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki’s ki energies flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands while they are touching or suspended slightly above your body.

Benefits of Reiki Therapy
Releases stress and pain
Calms anxiety and depression
Enhances recovery from surgery
Helps your immune system
Helps relieve neck and back problems
Provides relief from chronic illnesses and cancer
Helps manage high blood pressure and diabetes
Helps deepen spiritual connection
Creates a sense of well-being

What Happens in a Session
When you visit us you will be asked to lay down on the massage table fully clothed except for your shoes. You may be asked to remove or loosen your belt so that your breathing is not restricted in any way. Therefore, choose loose-fitting garments to wear on the day of your appointment. Natural fabrics are always best (organic cotton, wool, or linen.) You may also be asked to remove any jewelry such as rings, bracelets, pendants, etc., prior to the session, so consider leaving these items at home.

I am passionate and compassionate about helping people. I enjoy working as a healer, assisting others on their way to a healthy life style with a variety of very safe treatments with proven success.

A deeply spiritual person, over the years I have learned a variety of methods of healing that are truly life changing. I do this work with a lot of joy, caring and love.  I am an associate with the School Sister of Notre Dame. I have 3 children and 5 grandkids and I enjoy spending my time with them as much as possible.  I enjoy reading, being with people and going on spiritual retreats.

 I look forward to meeting you — call for a brief complementary consultation!

My experience with Ragani still feels like a miracle cure to me.
After just one month of treatment, I was free from 25 years of acute pain associated with
endometriosis. I can’t even begin to describe what a difference this has made
in my life. Ragani is an exceptional healer who approaches her practice with
incredible knowledge, skill, wisdom and compassion. I am forever grateful.

sessions with Ragani and they went away and have not returned. Her gua sha
treatments have also worked well for me for other pain and circulation problems.
Ragani really takes time to listen to her patients and her holistic approach and
deep knowledge of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine gets great results for me.”

Looking to explore this further, she found The Grief Recovery Institute and Participated in The Grief Recovery Method® Certification Program. As a certified grief recovery specialist, Dr. Brin helps to provide a safe, supportive environment in which the client can explore old beliefs about dealing with loss, identify what losses have effected one’s life, and help the client to take the steps necessary to complete the pain associated with those losses and move forward. In addition to helping adults, Dr. Brin helps grieving children to understand and express their feelings regarding their loss and helps the parent/ caregiver learn how to best support the child.

Dr. Brin also has a very special interest in psychological oncology. A member of the American Psychological Oncology Association, Dr. Brin works to treat the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and quality-of-life issues associated with cancer.
