Located inside the Historic Barton Roller Mill office suites just north of West Bend, nestled between the Milwaukee River and the Eisenbahn State Trail.


Know your worth. 🙂

A violinist played for 45 minutes in the New York subway. A handful of people stopped, a couple clapped, and the violinist raised about $30 in tips.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. In that subway, Joshua played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.

Two days before he played in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out a Boston theatre, and the seats averaged about $100.

The experiment proved that the extraordinary in an ordinary environment does not shine and is so often overlooked and undervalued.

There are brilliantly talented people everywhere who aren’t receiving the recognition and reward they deserve. But once they arm themselves with value and confidence and remove themselves from an environment that isn’t serving them, they thrive and grow.

Your gut is telling you something. Listen to it if it’s telling you where you are isn’t enough!

Go where you are appreciated and valued.

Know Your Worth.

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

"Do you love Me?" Alice asked.
"No, I don't love you!" replied the White Rabbit.
Alice frowned and clasped her hands together as she did whenever she felt hurt.
"See?" replied the White Rabbit. "Now you're going to start asking yourself what makes you so imperfect and what did you do wrong so that I can't love you at least a little.
You know, that's why I can't love you. You will not always be loved Alice, there will be days when others will be tired and bored with life, will have their heads in the clouds, and will hurt you.
Because people are like that, they somehow always end up hurting each other's feelings, whether through carelessness, misunderstanding, or conflicts with themselves.
If you don't love yourself, at least a little, if you don't create an armor of self-love and happiness around your heart, the feeble annoyances caused by others will become lethal and will destroy you.
The first time I saw you I made a pact with myself: 'I will avoid loving you until you learn to love yourself.' "~

Trick or Treat!

I have carved 🎃 out some time to send a quick update. Due to my busy client schedule and exclusive availability, there are a few changes to announce.

1. I am only accepting new clients via $500 enrollment (with the exception of Discovery sessions or gift certificate redemption). Existing, lapsed clients who have not visited in over 9 months will be charged a $250 “re-enrollment” fee at their next scheduled visit. If this time is creeping up for you, be sure to schedule a visit soon to avoid the additional fee. That can be done online here (https://within-arms-reach.com/schedule-an-appointment-or-rates) .

2. I will no longer be selling gift certificates/cards. However, existing gift certificates/cards will always be accepted for redemption.

3. The sale of discounted massage packages will be discontinued after December 31st of this year. They will be available for purchase in person and online here (https://app.squarespacescheduling.com/catalog.php?owner=25007345&category=Package) up until that time.

As always, I do accept payment in the form of Health Savings and Flex Spending cards. I can also provide documentation for health insurance reimbursement (please check with your provider[s] for coverage details).

I’ve always been intrigued by the nervous system.



Very much so. 💯 As within, so without. 🌀Home improvement, design, and decor are my passions outside of the office. ☺️ And it’s expanding to gardening and landscape design recently, too. 🌱👩‍🌾🏡

Makes sense to me 🌻🌿



To my fellow survivors who are finding their way, while learning how to express themselves, and honor what they need. Brave work

The old healer to the soul:

It's not your back that hurts, but the burden.

It's not your eyes that hurt, but injustice.

It's not your head that hurts, it's your thoughts.

Not the throat, but what you don't express or what you say with anger.

Not the stomach that hurts, but what the soul does not digest.

It's not the liver that hurts, it's the anger.

It's not your heart that hurts, but love.

And it is love itself that contains the most powerful medicine. (UnknownAuthor)

This is usually the part of the massage where most clients fall asleep. 😄


We don’t transform emotional pain. Rather, we are transformed "by" it. It’s not a mechanical process; it’s an alchemical one we receive.

Believing that we transform emotional pain is a patriarchal, fix-it paradigm. Once pain has landed in us, trying to fix it usually makes it worse.

We fix physical wounds and broken bones. This is a linear, archetypal masculine process. Emotional work is the opposite: we have to fully accept and embody what we are feeling before it can clear. In the process, it transfigures us.

This is a circular, paradoxical, archetypal feminine wisdom largely lost on our modern age. Allowing our pain, past and present, to change us is how we integrate it. It’s “magic” precisely because we aren’t fully in control of it, and we don’t “do” it.

This way we become more than what we can think or imagine—because it’s not our mind that does most of the work. We surrender to what feels like a power greater than ourselves, in our bodies. This contrasts with deliberately seeking magic via beliefs in other, disembodied, fantastic realms.

The little bit that we “do” is to gently enter and discover our heartbreaks—the abandoned old and just rupturing new—so we can surrender to feel and move through them, which requires some skill and wisdom. This is how we spark transformation, while the fire and rising from the ashes happen unbidden in the dark, hidden chambers of our bodies.

This wisdom is the heart of psychological transmutation: clearing what impedes us in order to rebirth a more beautiful present—for ourselves, others, and the planet. It is the generation and evolution of embodied love.~

Be courageous. 💪 Keep growing. 💗


For everyone who strives for perfection, I suggest striving for messy happiness instead. Our bodies and minds prefer it, we just have to first allow ourselves to release the need to have a sense of control.

Happiness. ✨
