Is This You?

You should be happy, but you’re just not.

Something’s missing in your life.

Maybe you’ve tried to power through this.

Maybe you’ve meditated, practiced yoga, gotten massages, or signed up for a program.

Maybe you’ve gone to the doctor, or other healing practitioners.

Maybe these things helped some, but you’re still not happy.

You want to be there for your kids, or the people who need you. And you want to feel complete as YOU.

You can.

Those who have the most success with me tend to share these values:

  • Inner experience is important to you. You want to feel good, not just look happy.
  • Self-care and growth. You want to get to know yourself better and see yourself in new ways.

If something in these words resonates with you,

I can support you to find balance and connection – in the midst of your responsibilities.

How I Work

My approach has developed through working with people for over a dozen years. It’s based in these principles.


Love is a powerful healer, softening resistance and tension. I gently guide you into compassionate awareness of whatever’s here in the moment, dropping beyond problem solving and thinking.

Inner Space

Compassion makes it easier to be in your inner space, which means you can connect more easily with yourself and others.

Honoring You

Our connection centers in what’s present for you, what your strengths are, and what you’re wanting.

Plus, a Powerful Healing Art

VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing holistically supports you on all levels, including emotional, physical, mental, spiritual and more. I combine it with compassionate listening and guidance, to support you to relax into your inner space, while honoring you the whole way through.

Each time we work together, you become more centered and peaceful – and you have the energy to be there for the people in your life.

Meet Megumi Burr-Tolliver

When I was a teenager, I knew that I wanted to “help and understand people and myself.” In hindsight, I grew up in a world where feelings, and other things that didn’t fit in a certain box of being respectable and intelligent, were not acknowledged. So some of my heart and spirit got tucked away, even from myself.

I got a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and started to uncover my heart through plants and intentional community. The next few years included biodynamic gardening and lifesharing with developmentally disabled folks in a Camphill Community, and earthen building and permaculture in Thailand.

I really stepped into being a healer in Holistic Health Practitioner training in 2007. Here I started supporting myself and others to feel what’s going on inside. From here I was drawn to continue with energy healing, massage, doula and holistic teaching trainings. 

I began Compassion Tree Mama Care in 2009, supporting pregnant and postpartum folks to build compassion for themselves and trust their innate wisdom. My roles evolved as a doula, massage therapist, and then yoga and movement teacher (after more trainings). Along the way I also led workshops and classes for a broader group of folks, nurturing their self-acceptance and trust of their innate wisdom.

VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing brought a way to deepen awareness of what goes on inside, and clear the patterns that keep people stuck. I’ve found this body of work to be amazingly systematic, while also continually deepening in the mystery of the Divine. I became a practitioner in 2015, and continue with trainings several times a year to deepen my tools and capacity. 

I love noticing little details in nature, like how a sprout develops, or the path water takes around rocks and sticks. I’ve lived in community most of my adult life, with housemates in urban and suburban homes, and working on the land together in rural intentional community.

Megumi is one of those individuals you meet and are instantly put at ease and feel like you’ve known her for a really long time. She is compassionate and takes the time to really focus on your needs and wants.
– Jeanne, pregnancy massage recipient

You are very good at guiding people to relax, receive and allow. And you have a really good grasp of spirituality, healing, living life as a Human Being and consciousness.
– Caleb, energy healing recipient

[Megumi] helped and guided me through this dark period of my life where I was grieving the loss of my father. She helped me seeing the importance of feeling all the emotions and releasing them as we worked together…. She listens with her open heart and guides with ease and gentleness that no one else has done for me.
– Chia R., mother

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.
– Shannon Hernandez, Intuitive Healer

Megumi works with individuals of any gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, spirituality or religion.
