I am a holistic health practitioner specializing in myofascial release therapies including Craniosacral, Arvigo Maya Abdominal, and Prenatal and Infant Massage as a Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner. ® I offer massage therapy, health coaching, pelvic steams and nutrition support for all bodies, especially those with menstrual, pelvic or low back pain, digestive conditions, or a sense of disconnect or discomfort around womb, sexuality, and reproductive health.My experience over the last ten years in femme and family health includes work as a birth doula and lactation counselor, yoga teacher, rape crisis counselor, women’s health program manager and public health researcher. Raised between Minnesota and Nigeria among traditional chiefs, woodswomen, midwives and herbalists, I strive to offer evidence-based care in warm spaces that are also affordable, consent- and trauma-informed, gender fluid, and ancestrally rooted.My coaching mindfully integrates African and other indigenous practices through modern forms of ceremony and circle, cleansing, altar making and dream analysis, and is rooted in a more indigenous pace of life - making space and setting boundaries around work and family in order to slow down, feel more, and honor our monthly cycles and need for rest.
