About Our Icb Program

The CranioSacral Rhythm is the sacred rhythm of life. Circulation is life. Life is movement. Bones & tissue need to move. This rhythm is produced by the cerebral spinal fluid circulation around the brain, within the brain and around the spinal cord. Using strategic bony handles, fascial systems, unwinding, and energy techniques, we teach you how to log onto the innate intelligence of the person – as a whole.

We believe in having a strong foundation which is the technical part of our program.

The foundation of our program includes anatomy, neuroanatomy, basic energy boundaries, craniosacral, craniofacial and intra-oral bodywork techniques. Techniques are taught so that each participant is verified and validated for their application. This is to enable you to confidently apply the techniques into your practice and to move through the levels.

We create the safe and sacred space for you to not only to learn techniques but to also be able to delve into your own healing. The way we do this is to ensure the class size is small (8 students: 2 teachers), and the material content is not overwhelming so that there is sufficient time and space for processing and personal transformation.

Our program is about reclaiming our own hearts, bodies and spirit guidance. This is a set up for inspiration, hope, and miracles. Departing from protocol, paradigm, dogma, and symptom-based treatment.

Thank you so much. I loved it. It was 3 days of miracles and also hard work.


My calling has always been with me. It has appeared in many forms, throughout my life. In my early childhood, I did not understand it. In my youth, I did not feel comfortable with it. I naturally wanted to help EVERYONE. I enjoyed my years practicing as a physical therapist. Somehow, I was different from my peers. The best part of healing for me was connecting to people. My education did not get into much beyond physical symptoms and presentations.

My introduction to CranioSacral Therapy was a doorway to Listening to Innate Intelligence and personal transformation. I finally found a vehicle to access my calling organically. Other trainings such as Visceral manipulation, peripheral manipulation, energy healing, Gestalt Therapy, and Shamanic Journeying broadened my access to healing the Whole.

When faced with my own trauma, illnesses and seeking alternative bodywork, I began to understand that we are much more than our symptoms, our stories, our experiences. We are all of it and more. Our Heart, our Soul Speak, hold the key to our Health and Spiritual Guidance. I was seriously committed to my own self-cultivation, self-love, and honored more deeply this notion of Community and the Oneness of Spirit.

I owned my gifts as a privilege of service and showed up authentically and joyfully. My professional and personal life were no longer separate. Luckily, when I met Natalie, we melded through osmosis our beliefs, practice, and learning. Our deep connections empowered our creative juices and we created what we were intimately passionate about. A Spiritual, heart-based Integrative Bodywork program with sound, didactic, foundation. And…a heartfelt, Spiritually Guided way of Life. “Health is the Challenge to Be Yourself” and most importantly, I do indeed believe in Magic & Miracles.

“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence…” – Thich Nhat Hanh


“Believe in your heart that you’re meant to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles.” – Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

I am a walker between the worlds, using my skills to help you weave together your fragmented parts in order for you to live a more joyous authentic life. I invite you to explore and release all that is keeping you from living your fullest expression of Self. Learn to listen to the part of you that still believes in healing, miracles, and magic. Taoist Master, Dr. Jeffrey Yuen, has taught “that all illness is an invitation to change”. My healing practice embraces that concept.

I am a Mystic, trained by guides and teachers in dreams and visions from childhood in different healing traditions. I have spent years training in classical Shamanism (not to be confused with Neo-Shamanism and the new age movement). I use this training in all of the work I do. I am accredited in a number of different modalities to help you heal the trinity of body, mind, and spirit. Through CranioSacral therapy, Visceral Mobilization, Somatic Emotional Release Work, and Spiritual cultivation, together we will release trauma. Pain is often how our body communicates with us. It lets us know that something is not right. I invite you to come with an open heart, and a willingness to delve into what might be keeping you from healing. We will unwind your tissues and release old constructs which no longer serve you, allowing you to heal on all levels.

It is my commitment to help you to become reacquainted with your own personal magic, your own inner light, your own gift, and abilities. Our work together will feed the embers of your flame that still believes that everything is possible.

When I met Annie, we instantly connected, and after three years of knowing and working together, we were called to teach together. When we began our partnership, it was a beautiful collaboration between ourselves and spirit. We feel joy in creating a safe place where everyone is encouraged to be themselves. Our goal as teachers is to facilitate a transformative process to shed old beliefs and heal trauma. Annie and I are always digging deeper into our own process and transforming our trauma so we can help others go deeper.

The craniosacral rhythm is the sacred rhythm of life, and I intend to listen, follow, and dance with joy.
