Hi! I'm Meredith. My passions and interests are the foundation of Peaceful Touch Healing Arts. I am so grateful to be in business doing what I love, sharing my passions and natural gifts to help support others along their healing journey. I believe the body has the innate wisdom to heal itself and I am grateful to offer my services to help facilitate and witness the unfolding and unwinding of your healing journey.
I have been practicing Massage Therapy, Yoga, and Reiki since 1999 and CranioSacral Therapy since 2014 which I now solely focus on as the prime bodywork modality in my practice. Over the past twenty years of working with clients through holistic bodywork I have learned so much about pain, injury, illness and the human experience. Equally I've learned the uniqueness and sacredness of each individual person and body I work with. Every body is sacred and holds a story and an essence. I am honored to be doing this work and to be trusted by the ones who walk into my office for support.
The work that I do is not just body work but is also soul work. More than a massage therapist I consider myself a holistic health practitioner because I treat the whole person. A holistic lifestyle is truly about integrating the body, mind, and spirit, honoring and listening to all parts of the self as well as nature. Humans are intrinsically connected to the earth and are nature. Connecting to this is therapeutic. I hold the earth near and dear to my heart and my work reflects this. I have found CranioSacral Therapy a bodywork modality that supports this along with energy work and yoga.
It is through nervous system restoration, releasing stress, trauma, and long held tension patterns in the tissues of the body that I help clients connect to their true essence and wholeness to find peace, balance, purpose and healing though pain, illness, injury, challenges, and struggle that is felt in the body, mind, and spirit.
My work is grounded in academics and guided by spirit. Every modality I bring to my clients I have personally dedicated my time to experiencing myself. I only practice and teach what has been profoundly helpful in my own healing process. I feel called to this work because of my purpose and passion to support the earth. I am dedicated to healing myself for my highest good, my children, my descendants, ancestors, and for the future of this beautiful planet.
About me personally, I am mom of older kids whom have been my greatest teachers and joy in life. I love cats and spending time in nature. I'm a life long student. I love focusing on personal growth and development. Health and wellness is one of the most important things to me other than my loved ones. Music is so amazing and soothes my soul. I just recently learned that I like to write and being creative fills me up. Staying clear and true to my heart is a necessity and everyday practice and intention for me. Life is a blessing and I am so thankful to be here on earth!
