Megumi Burr-Tolliver

Intuitive Bodywork, Massage & Healing

  • Emotionally & Energetically Attuned Bodywork
  • Body Positive: Accepting of All Genders & Sizes
  • Compassionate Care for Your Whole Being

My sessions with Megumi are potent explorations into the depths of my embodied experience. I'm constantly amazed by how her intuitive touch reveals layers of sensation and interconnections that were previously unconscious. These sessions not only support profound energetic releases and healing, they're also facilitating a deeper and more attuned relationship with my body.

Megumi Burr-Tolliver’s intuitive bodywork, massage and healing sessions address the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of wellbeing.


Megumi’s nurturing massage and bodywork is tailored to your needs and integrates techniques to address the specific discomforts arising for you. She draws from her background as a yoga instructor to support your journey.


Sessions may integrate emotional support, deep listening, and guidance for resourcing yourself to meet emotional challenges.


Megumi supports your resilience through transformation and change. Intuitive bodywork, VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing, guided breath, and self-healing practices may be integrated with massage or the focus of the session, to support you to release and transform physical, emotional and energetic blockages, tension and pain.


Pregnancy & Postpartum

Support your journey through pregnancy, preparing for birth, and postpartum. This has been a professional focus for Megumi since 2009. Learn more at Compassion Tree Mama Care.

VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing

Bring clarity, remove blockages, and create more freedom. Uses divine light and consciousness to heal patterns that limit us emotionally, physically and energetically, and for awakening.

Sessions start with a conversation to identify the focus of the energy healing, and end with a conversation about what showed up and support for integrating and moving forward.

VortexHealing® sessions may be in person or over distance. For distance sessions, we connect by phone at the beginning and end of the session; during the session, you receive in a quiet space of your choice where you can relax with gentle awareness on your experience. Although there are a few VortexHealing® tools that can be only used or are more potent in person, powerful healing can occur over distance.

Meet Megumi Burr-Tolliver

My work is to support compassionate self-awareness – whether that’s through massage, supporting your resilience through change, or healing of deep conditioning.

Emotions, subtle energy and awakening have been integral to my personal and professional healing path since I started Holistic Health Practitioner training in 2007. I am a student and practitioner (since 2015) of the VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing lineage.

I teach to support self-healing and awakening. Collaborations Shakti Spiritual Health, Dharma Dinners, and Purna have been the major vehicles for my group teachings. Some of my guided meditations and teachings are available online on the Unconditional Love video channel.

For pregnant and postpartum clients, my work is supported by my background as a birth and postpartum doula (2010-2012), and as an instructor of Dancing for Birth™, pregnancy and postpartum yoga, and my own creation, YogaDance Mama (2011-2018).
