• Are you tired of being stressed out?
• Do you want to sleep better?
• Do you have pain that you wish would go away?

Imagine a Natural Solution that Doesn’t Involve Surgery or Drugs!

Experts estimate that upwards of 90% of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Stress contributes to poor sleep, tight muscles, never being able to turn “off” your mind, irritability, fatigue, easily getting sick, and many other negative impacts on your health. Stress creates its own health issues that can lead to additional stress! It becomes like a vicious cycle of the “chicken or the egg” that seems impossible to break. There IS a way to stop the cycle - with bodywork!

Most people already know that a good massage can help relieve pain, improve circulation, and improve concentration. Many people don’t realize how poorly they sleep, or have forgotten what a good night’s sleep feels like. Christy P. learned that better sleep is an additional benefit of massage:

“I went to Nadine because I had a stabbing pain in my mid-upper back that had come upon me 3 days earlier. When I left, I had the mobility back in my neck and the stabbing pain was gone!! I thought that'd be the last of the benefit but I got up the next morning feeling amazing - having slept better than I had in a long time! Thank you, Nadine!”

Reiki treatments and the AromaTouch Technique with essential oils have a profound impact on the mind and emotions, as well as the body. The US Army has used Reiki treatments to treat soldiers with PTSD. AromaTouch addresses stress, the immune system, pain/inflammation, and brings the body into homeostasis. Clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving bodywork. This emotional rebalancing can be just as important as the more obvious physical benefits. Bodywork also helps decrease feelings of anxiety and can lessen over reaction to a stressful situation. Renee L. said this about her experience:

“After four sessions with Nadine, I feel better than I have in years. I am now free from pain and her work has helped me learn how to deal with stress more effectively. This bodywork is truly healing. I would recommend Nadine to anyone looking for bodywork that addresses your mind as well as your body.”

Essential oils are 100% pure extracts from plants and have unique therapeutic properties. Oils work on the limbic system of the brain and at the body’s cellular level. They ease the symptoms without the side effects. Paul F. is a diabetic. He spent over 40 yrs as a lumberjack and meat cutter. After his first AromaTouch treatment, he had increased feeling and less pain in his feet and legs. Since he has been massaging essential oil into his feet and legs, the hair is growing back on his legs (improved circulation) and he has less pain. One day, he walked so much in the mountains, his knees hurt too much to sleep. After a Reiki session, he slept almost 18 hrs, his knees (and back) didn’t hurt, and he felt great when he woke up! Because of knife blades and arthritis, he had constant pain in his hands. He couldn’t straighten out his fingers or hold a cup with one hand. He started massaging a few drops of essential oil into his hands, daily. Within 2 wks, he could straighten his fingers, hold a cup, and his pain was minimal!

Health is a journey - the benefits of bodywork are compounded when used as a frequent therapy. Studies have shown that weekly massages increase the immune system.

Imagine Your Life if You Could Feel:
• Healthy and at ease in your body
• Energetic and excited about life
• Focused and “Present”

My clients come seeking relief and they leave feeling better – not just for the day, but for an extended period of time!

Bio
I specialize in pain and stress reduction. My practice is focused on providing you natural solutions like massage, Reiki, and essential oils for health and wellness challenges.

Becoming a massage therapist was never in my original plan. I graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Russian Language and Soviet Studies with plans to make the Air Force a career. After a few years of active duty military service, I transferred to the Air Force Reserves and began working as a management consultant.

I loved horses and wanted a “horsey” job. I learned about the field of equine massage (yes, there is such a thing). The equine massage school I initially wanted to attend required students to be either vets, chiropractors, or massage therapists. I decided my best option was to become a human massage therapist.

Once I started massage therapy school, I realized how much I loved doing human massage! I graduated from massage school in Nov. 2002. Initially, I was trained in Swedish/deep tissue work, but then continued to get training in advanced massage therapy techniques including Reiki, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Bowen and more (including equine massage). In March 2003, I started practicing as a licensed massage therapist in northern Virginia. I had my own private clients and also worked part time at the Army Navy County Club.

I personally experienced how healing Reiki treatments can be when I broke both of my arms in the middle of massage school! I was my own test case for does it “work?” I healed very quickly, was back to doing full body massages, and graduated on time from massage school. I completed my training as a Reiki Jin Kei Do Master/Teacher in 2004.

I relocated to the Huntsville, AL, area in 2008. I ran my massage practice part time while working full time as a management consultant. In March 2014, I opened a permanent location in Huntsville for Bodywork for Healing.

I live on a small farm with horses, chickens and cats; I am a Christian.

I am the only Reiki Jin Kei Do Master in Alabama. I offer classes in Reiki, essential oils, and mediation.
