Meet Megumi

This page is under renovation. Please return soon for my fully updated introduction.

Roots in Holistic Health: My path as a healer started with Holistic Health Practitioner training in 2007. It was this training that inspired me to complete massage/bodywork training and doula training, and eventually to combine these fields to specialize in massage and bodywork for moms.

Foundations in Doula work: Early in my bodywork career, I simultaneously worked for two years as a birth and postpartum doula. These experiences gave me an intimate understanding of the experiences of pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Movement & Yoga: I added movement to my work with moms when I became a Dancing for Birth(tm) instructor in 2011. In 2013-14, I completed training as a yoga instructor with specialization in pregnancy yoga, through Laughing Lotus Yoga and Nine Moons Prenatal Yoga.

Energy Healing, Emotions & the Awakening Path: My healing work reaches beyond the physical – integrating emotions, subtle energy and the awakening path. I also teach small groups, and in 2014-15, co-led several workshops and retreats for self-healing and awakening through a co-founded project, Shakti Spiritual Health.
