How Can I Serve You?

Women are both strong and vulnerable. Our systems have developed to be able to nurture life, give birth, and be a mother –among many other possibilities.  Yet sometimes our lifestyles, histories or circumstances have led to our reproductive systems & hormones, our female powers, becoming out of balance. Our digestion is a root of imbalance- or health- and is a big focus in Ayurveda.  Helping you restore your balance is my goal.  You are the master of your body and I am here to educate, support and encourage you in giving your physical form, mind & soul what is needed to work as Mother Nature intended it to – as an energetic, vital woman with

Healing Resources to Serve You

Ayurveda teaches how to live a balanced, healthy life & promote longevity. Your history and symptoms give us clues to imbalances and where they came from. When in-person, pulse reading allows us to tune in to imbalance and then treat it before it solidifies into a more physical form.  Treatments include lifestyle, dietary, herbal, energetic, and purification techniques. Ayurveda knowledge informs all my work with clients, since it helps personalize care, making it more effective.

Midwifery was my life for years and is ingrained in my practice, even though I am not registered any longer and don’t attend births. What I learned about women and their bodies supports all my work now. I love to educate about healthy cycles, fertility,pregnancy & birth! I’ve written two books for pregnancy - Pregnant Feelings (with Rahima Dancy, as Terra Palmarini Richardson) and Ayurveda for the Childbearing Years - both available on amazon.com. Menopausal women also benefit from women’s health care.

Maya Abdominal Therapy (traditional techniques from Belize) promotes the flow of blood, lymph, nerve & energy for abdominal organs & body as a whole. If you’re at a distance, I can teach you self massage over webcam. (IMPORTANT NOTE: We don’t do the Maya Abdominal Therapy on the 4 days before your period or during the period (except for spotting at the end) to respect the heaviness of the uterus at that time.) Other Maya Therapies available include Vaginal Steams, Spiritual Baths, Energy Clearing

Energy Work includes Marma Point Therapy, Reiki ,& Flower Essence Therapy(FET also in Boulder), available in-person or at a distance.

Foot reflexology helps balance organs of the body through massage to the feet. This technique is simple but amazingly effective, especially when practiced over time.  It FEELS GOOD too!
