  • Ceremonial Transpersonal Bodywork - With respect and reverence to the roots of Polynesian techniques and an ongoing love affair within the field of the transpersonal. With ongoing guidance from within entheogenic medicine, transpersonal bodywork offers treatment and experience that is profound and rich in ceremony and rite of passage. Grounded in the basic principles of Yin and Yang and the cycles of destruction, creation, embodiment, preservation, and release the application of touch, sound, rhythm, motion, breath, clear intention and focus bring about a heightened awareness and deep connectedness unfurls within both the giver and receiver. Approached as a whole body meditation and a practice in turning one's gaze inward the receiver is facilitated in exploring the complex layers of the body, mind psyche, and interconnected beliefs, emotions, and memories. It is with courage and commitment to using the mind to travel within the many layers of the body system that a profound deepening and unification of all parts of the human experience unfurl. Our breath is our anchor and our breeze from which we captain our vessel, our inner landscape and the many layers within is the infinite ocean from which we must learn to navigate with presence, courage, and commitment.
  • Thai Shiatsu Bodywork - A fusion of Thai and Shiatsu massage, this treatment is therapeutic in nature and is offered as a clothed treatment. Delivered on a shiatsu mat on the floor the practice involves gentle stretching, cradling, rocking, rubbing, and shiatsu trigger point therapy. The treatment has been likened to receiving a 1.5-hour yoga session without you having to do anything except breathe and let go.
  • Thai Shiatsu Floor Massage - a 90-minute whole body meditation. With this technique, your body is invited to find its own parasympathetic nervous system release. Thai Shiatsu Massage offers a deep rest of the entire body and nervous system.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
