VortexHealing® Distance Healing Sessions

Changed circumstances and unknowns are bringing up anxieties, fears, and deeply rooted survival issues for many of us. I’m supporting people to experience what’s arising with more ease and clarity.

Angelic Heart is one of my favorite tools from VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing, and I’m featuring it for Mini Sessions and Group Healings. Angelic Heart healings focus on a challenging situation in your life, to bring in peace, hope, clarity, new perspective, and new possibilities.

Mini Sessions

Find more ease in a stressful time. Bring clarity and new perspective to your current situation sheltering at home, or a personal situation of your choice. Features Angelic Heart healing. (30-40 minutes)

Group Healings

Small-group Angelic Heart distance healings, focusing on your biggest personal challenge arising from our current situation. Join my newsletter updates or contact me for upcoming dates. (30-40 minutes)

Full Sessions

Focused support for an issue of your choosing. Some results of this work: spaciousness and new awareness around the issue, increased ease in previously challenging experiences, a sense of being at the right place in the unfolding of your evolution. (60-70 minutes)

VortexHealing® Distance Healing Sessions are available for one-time support, or ongoing support in packages of 3 or 7 sessions.

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.

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).
