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.

Bethamie Wyatt, an experienced Certified Emotion Code Practitioner and founder of Healing In Motion, provides emotion release therapy, as well as, health education and  NIA movement wellness dance classes.

ABOUT NIA HOLISTIC DANCE BASED MOVEMENT
As a certified and licensed NIA instructor, Bethamie creates a space for healing and choosing joy. NIA, or Neuromuscular Integrative Action, is a sensory-based movement practice fusing nine different movement forms from the dance arts, martial arts and the healing arts including yoga. As a cardiovascular exercise, NIA builds flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability. It is effective for weight-loss and is known to help many conditions including depression, asthma, diabetes, arthritis and fibromyalgia to name a few.

Bethamie balances the joy, excitement and fun of Nia with its calming, healing components and offers dance classes to women, men and teens of all abilities.

“Nia came into my life as a gift and I am so grateful to be able to share this healing experience with others,” she says. An instructor since 2008, Bethamie facilitates Nia classes and workshops that encourage community and connection among class participants. Impressions from her cultural experiences in Senegal, West Africa and Belize, Central America can be felt in her classes through the sounds and rhythms of these musically rich places. Each gathering with Bethamie is a unique experience with a blend of broad influences that allow her to provide a quality education around health and movement wellness while building a rapport with a diverse group of participants. After a class with Bethamie, you are sure to step into your day on the “Nia cloud” – strong and determined yet relaxed and rejuvenated!

ABOUT EMOTION CODE THERAPY & WOMEN’S HEALTH EDUCATION
Bethamie is also a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner. The Emotion Code is a bio-energetic healing technique that frees the body of the weight of trapped emotions. This simple and gentle technique, using kinesiology or muscle-testing, releases years of built-up emotions that are often at the root of many physical ailments and emotional disturbances. Releasing these trapped emotions (with the use of healing magnets) often results in transformational experiences, allowing people to live a life of more clarity and balance, unstuck on their life paths and happier.

Bethamie holds a Master’s Degree in Women’s Studies with a concentration in women’s health education from Eastern Michigan University.  For over a decade, she has provided health education workshops focusing on the physical, social and emotional health of girls and the women in their lives. Through health education and movement, Bethamie creates a supportive and safe environment that allows a space for girls and women to explore their personal growth and development.

HEALING HANDS INTEGRATIVE ENERGY THERAPY

Maria Giordano, RM, CHT (Usui Reiki Master)

Services:

Reiki Therapy
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!

deep knowledge of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine gets great results for me.”

MELANIE MURRAY, MA, LPC-S, SEP, BCST

Melanie Murray, MA, LPC-S, SEP, BCST

Services:

Body Centered Psychotherapy
Somatic Experiencing Therapy
Attachment & Relational Trauma Therapy
Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy

Melanie Murray, LPC, SEP, BCST is a psychotherapist that specializes in Somatic Experiencing Therapy. Melanie’s work is influenced by her mature nature as an empath, and intuitive healer. Somatic Experiencing touch work, her studies in Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy, a Masters in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, an apprenticeship with a world class healer, and study at Sufi Spiritual Healing School, have enhanced her natural ability to feel into others physical and emotional experience. This allows for a deep connection to the unconscious and energetic levels of psyche.

Melanie is a mediator, yoga teacher, former professional ballet dancer and professor of dance. The body has been her life-long study. Melanie is a student of Consciousness, “The Work” of Gurdjieff, Advita Vadanta, Christian and Sufi Mysticism, Chakra Energy Healing and Authentic Movement. She remains curious and open to exploring how our energetic/spiritual anatomy and nervous system inter-relate.

“Does your life lack luster? Is there a stream of unease, boredom, anxiety or fear running underneath the surface? Do you find yourself numbing out with sugar, alcohol, shopping or sex?

We are living in an increasingly secularized world. The pressure to achieve success, accrue more material goods and experience sensual pleasures associated with bottomless desires, is at the level of societal addiction. All of this frenzy is rooted in the avoidance of feeling the emptiness, grief and frustration caused by a lack of sacred presence of our soul. We are lacking a connection to the real meaning of sacred purpose in our daily lives, and we experience life as hungry ghosts.

My work is rooted in turning your wiring inside out. It is about embodiment or living from your center, your essential nature or soul. Through the tools of somatic experiencing therapy and biodynamic cranial, I can assist the unwinding of your nervous system, from the automatic hyper-drive setting you are living, to experiencing a sense of well-being and connection to an intimate and purposeful life.

I use psychotherapy, as well as, touch skills to facilitate a body-centered process of healing. This is a multi-dimensional process of unlayering the disturbances that keep you separate from your true nature. One layer is that of Coming out of the noise of the mind by learning to orient to your inner world of sensation, intuition and feeling. Another layer is softening your defenses and habitual ways of avoiding the fears and beliefs that have gotten you this wound up and numbered out. There may be layers of trauma that create anxiety that you fear unleashing in rage or a panic attack. All of these layers keep you from feeling really alive and available for true vulnerability and intimacy. A life of grace that we are wired to live but need help accessing.

As an empath I can tune in to places in your body where blocked energy is inhibiting your access to love. After all, love is what we are here to experience, both for ourselves, others and our home, the universe. Love is the evolutional force of our existence.

I have assisted hundreds of clients in the process of unwinding the layers of personality identities and defenses, energetic toxic loads that create illness, and trauma that inhibits life from being expressed in its full magnificent preciousness.

I guarantee at the core of your being is goodness and your body has the fuel you need to heal.
