Covid-19 Update

In-person sessions (Intuitive Bodywork, Massage & Healing, including Pregnancy & Postpartum Massage):

are paused until Alameda County reopens massage (as part of “personal services”). When I resume in-person sessions, it will be for studio sessions only, until warmer weather allows for outdoor home visits.

For support without in-person contact, I offer:

Group Healings

Small-group distance healings to help you move from struggle to ease. (45 minutes)

Private Healing Sessions

In a private healing session, it’s all about you! You tell me what you’d like to focus on, or we simply explore what’s alive in the moment.

As I channel VortexHealing, I guide you in exploring together with breath and awareness. You may come to the session with a clear intention for where you’d like healing, or we may discover or refine the focus as the session unfolds. (70 minutes)

What’s a VortexHealing® session like?

During your healing, you may feel deep relaxation, experience sensations or awareness, or something else or nothing at all. Whatever your experience, know that the healing is working. The effects are often most visible in how things show up differently for you afterward. The healing and its effects continue to unfold in the next days.

For private distance sessions, we connect by phone (you can also opt for video connection). You may come to the session with a clear intention for where you’d like healing, or we may discover or refine the focus as the session unfolds. As I channel VortexHealing, I guide you in exploring the issue by tuning in with breath and awareness.

A VortexHealing® experience:

Shannon came to me deep in grief after the loss of her kitty. In her session, she uncovered a long-held sense of failure. She describes her relief as VortexHealing® unwound the issue:

My system went from feeling like it was on the verge of breaking to complete ease in a second – and it continued to improve. As you kept working, my neck relaxed, the pressure on my chest released. It was physically and emotionally easier for me to breathe than it had been in weeks. Instead of feeling mired in misery, I felt as though all the world was at my fingertips. I felt as though the ground beneath me was solid. I felt supported, and clear about my ability to relate to others, to care for them, and myself.

One of my favorite parts of receiving your Vortex work and other healings, is that I am rarely even able to recall what seemed like such big issues after the healing is complete. Being able to move on from an issue without retaining any friction around it is one of the best gifts I have ever received. I look forward to continuing my growth with your healing contributions. They make it easier to live.

– Shannon Hernandez, Intuitive Healer

VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing Sessions are available as individual sessions, or in packages of 3 or 7 sessions.
