Ancestral Massage is what I call the work I do. In my culture it is known as a sobada.
Laying on of hands and healing through touch is the oldest form of health care belonging to our Ancestors the world over.
Skilled and intuitive touch helps to effectively re-balance the nervous system, increase blood and lymph circulation, reduce scar tissue and release mood elevating hormones.
It is a powerful way to process and begin to work through experiences our mind may have buried but our body and spirit has held on to.
Truly Ancestral work is not Transphobic or Homophobic.
In a massage session with me I will begin by listening deeply to you.
Based on our conversation I will form a plan of care for and with you. This may include incorporating moxa, gua sha, ventosas/ fire cupping, rebozo massage or limpias (energetic cleaning with fresh plants and smoke) .
After your session we'll talk about your experience and I will give you feedback on what I felt and suggestions for continuing to promote your wellness

This work can benefit someone who has just begun menstruating, has painful or irregular menses, uterine fibroids, scar tissue, digestive issues, is recovering from childbirth (vaginal or cesarean), recovering from abdominal surgery, wishes to become pregnant or is transitioning through menopause.
