“To help empower each client with love, healing, compassion, warmth, and dedication to the best of the best in quality bodywork and energy work services.”
Patricia currently works at Terra Health and Wellness as a 1099 contracted practitioner in providing the best of the best to massage, PTSD massage, and energy work clients. She also works part-time providing massage to homebound, special-needs clients, and is contracted through the Utah Department of Health in providing special needs massage to high-needs children and adults with Down’s Syndrome, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and other critical medical needs. Patricia absolutely loves and adores each of her clients, and helping provide love, compassion, empathy, comfort and pain relief to this population is something that gives Patricia great satisfaction and meaning in life! Patricia is a professional, natural-born, healer through and through, and was born and raised in Southern California. She currently lives with the love of her life; her awesome husband of over 26 years in Northern Utah. She is dedicated and enthusiastic about helping others in discomfort or pain through massage, energy work, self-improvement, personal development, and inner healing. She walked away from the corporate world after over 25 years to fulfill her calling of being a healer to help others on their life journey. She feels her mission in life is to serve other people in pain.
Patricia always wanted to help others with bodywork, but timing was never right to go to school to learn this modality. She first learned energy work/reiki/meditation to help herself manage her own pain, and this soon naturally spilled into helping others with their own pain, and teaching meditation and reiki to others. Still, she felt something was missing, because during reiki and energy work sessions, she noticed an uncanny ability of being able to completely tune in to clients during sessions, and needing/wanting to also massage any sore/tense/tired muscles and fascia to further facilitate healing with her clients. Patricia decided to further fulfill her lifelong dream of helping others by going back to school to learn massage and bodywork, and graduated from Cortiva Institute, formerly Utah College of Massage Therapy, and is now a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Utah.
Patricia develops a session with clients in working with the body, and not against it, by a gift of completely and intuitively tuning in to her clients during bodywork and energy work sessions. Patricia has ADHD, and a superpower of hers because of ADHD, is being able to hyper-focus and completely tune in to her client’s bodies during sessions. Because of this, all of her clients have remarked how “she just knows” where to help them with their pain. Patricia says because of ADHD, she “becomes one” with her clients during sessions, and “giving bodywork or energy work is like a meditation in and of itself, because I get so absorbed and tuned in to listening to the client’s mental, emotional, and physical bodies. This allows me to be able to work with the body in a completely wholelistic/holistic, intuitive and focused way. Because of this, you will never get a cookie-cutter massage from me! ” This means she does not do a “one size fits all” type of massage, and no session will ever be the same as previous ones.
She graduated from Cortiva Institute (formerly Utah College of Massage Therapy) is now a Licensed Massage Therapist, and is excited to be able to help clients heal through even more powerful tools! Neck, shoulder, arm, hand, and back pain are her specialties, and many clients seek her specifically for the excellent work she gives to those areas.
Patricia also teaches personal development in the form of developing and practicing Reiki/energy work, and is working on online classes where anyone who wants to learn reiki, can take it online with her. Another superpower of Patricia’s because of ADHD is her ability to teach classes in a fun, engaging, personable, informative, compassionate, comfortable, warm, loving, and empowering way. She prides herself in being able to offer an engaging, life-changing experience for all her students, and teaching is truly a gift of hers! Please contact Patricia directly if you would like to learn reiki!
What is PTSD Massage and Bodywork?
PTSD massage and bodywork therapy is an adjunct therapy practiced in conjunction with the patient’s mental health therapist. Only patients who the mental health therapist deems ready for PTSD massage can be seen for this type of modality, and Patricia works directly with the patient and their mental health therapist for a treatment plan that is best for the patient. This is because we store trauma physically in our bodies, and painful emotions can come up during a PTSD massage. The patient needs to have the necessary emotional tools to be able to handle these emotions when they come up, so they can discuss this with their mental health therapist in their sessions together. The reason clients may have somatic emotional experiences is because Patricia will work with, and massage specific areas of the body that have been known to store trauma. During treatment, Patricia works with the patient’s parasympathetic nervous system in helping restore a state of homeostasis. This is particularly helpful for patients who seem “stuck” in their mental health therapy sessions. After one or more of these sessions, patients report that it is much easier to be in tune with their body where they store their trauma and emotions, so their mental health therapy can become productive once again.
Patricia bases her PTSD bodywork on the work of Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk. Dr. Van Der Kolk has done extensive research in the mind/body connection, and in his New York Times best-selling book, “The Body Keeps the Score” Dr. Van Der Kolk provides extensive education to readers about what trauma is, and how we store it in our bodies. He promotes bodywork in assisting the client to release the emotions and trauma trapped in the body, so the client can continue to heal.
Patricia offers a warm, compassionate, kind, and non-judgmental outlook in working with all her patients, especially her patients who are survivors of PTSD. Patricia understands that, depending on the trauma suffered, patients can be hesitant to let someone else touch their body. Her training has helped her work directly with the patient and their mental health therapist, in establishing when the patient feels safe in utilizing somatic, PTSD massage and bodywork.
Patricia is not a mental health therapist, and never goes out of her scope of practice as a licensed massage therapist. The emotional work is between the patient and their mental health therapist, while the somatic work is done by Patricia. Patricia is passionate about helping fellow patients who are survivors of PTSD, and complex PTSD, and feels her own healing journey has helped prepare her to help others with this type of work.
Patricia suffered much trauma and tragedy throughout her childhood and adult years, and feels these trials helped serve her to become a more compassionate, empathetic, loving, and caring individual. She had to hit rock bottom before she woke up and began the journey of healing the pain and trauma she experienced. It was through daily meditation, counseling therapy/EMDR , massage and bodywork, that she was able to help process, integrate, and heal the past. She believes something interesting that comes from struggle, is the powerful lesson of compassion. When we go through major struggles, we become very intimate with pain, and the shadow. At some point we begin to see this pain in everyone else, and it is then that our heart is filled with compassion and love for the struggle and burdens we all carry, and our desire then becomes one to help change the world for the better, because of what we have had to learn.
Why all this talk of compassion? When someone has love and compassion for others in their hearts, it translates into how they view themselves, others, and the world. This comes out in every aspect of their lives; especially in the services they provide. Patricia believes that when we have genuine love and compassion in our hearts, not only for ourselves, but for others, our clients can feel this, and it directly affects our clients through the healing services we offer. Patricia’s approach is one of love, compassion, warmth, non-judgment, and understanding. This gets translated in the professional and therapeutic healing touch of massage, bodywork, and energy work, we as healers give.
Patricia thanks God/The Universe/The Creator(s) and her spiritual guidance team everyday for the healing, and resulting abundance of blessings in her life. Gratitude for all she has been blessed with in this life is something she makes sure to express regularly because she says without gratitude, our souls are never truly happy.
Service is also very important to her. She loves to give back to the community with volunteer bodywork/massage/reiki to those in need, and can also be found about 2-3 times a month practicing Reiki with other Reiki practitioners as a service, in a night of Reiki for those who are recovering from drug addiction. She is a trauma-informed massage therapist, and has also worked as a volunteer with refugees from other countries who were survivors of unspeakable trauma. It is a proven, scientific fact that we store emotions in our body, and this can show up as pain in the body! Bodywork/massage by a trauma-informed massage therapist, is extremely effective in being able to work in conjunction with any mental health services to assist the client in releasing any stored emotions to offer long-lasting relief.
She also practices a free, healing, distant, Reiki meditation for anyone who might need it. Please email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, the City, State, and country where you live, and she will include you in her collective, daily, distant group reiki sessions at no charge to you.
