Earlier this year, I mentioned to you that there were changes afoot. One of those changes was to re-name my practice, going from Chinese Abdominal Massage/Chi Nei Tsang, to Transformational Abdominal Massage (TAM). To my surprise, there were more to come and all are pretty exciting!
I’ll start with San Francisco. As most of you know, I moved to Santa Barbara from SF, my home of 18 plus years, in November of 2012. What lead me here to Santa Barbara was a Vipassana Meditation (link below), 10 days of meditation in silence retreat earlier that year, where my internal voice/higher self spoke and told me to move to Santa Barbara. For four of those ten days of the meditation, I was given explicit details of how to make this happen. Once I left the meditation center in Joshua Tree that March, I did precisely what I was guided to do. In my mid-forties with no contact (friends or family) here in SB, I had changed my entire life and it all came together!
Even with specific guidance, this task was mentally daunting at times. The stress alone of not knowing anyone and not knowing if my business would take flight physically debilitated my body at times, including a frozen shoulder, weird adductor strain. These maladies are what inspirational speaker, author and student of illness Louise Hay, attributes to being burdened by life and resisting moving forward.
Meanwhile, my practice in SF helped to support this endeavor until Santa Barbara landed on its feet. I’m happy to say that after 3.5 years that the time has come! SB is soaring and I’m letting go SF--at least work-wise, for now. I will make visits for fun of course, as I’ve left my heart in San Francisco. So if you have friends in the Bay Area that you think would benefit from TAM, send them my way! I’ll be there Oct 8-9 and Nov 12-13.
What does this mean for SB? I’ll have more days to offer treatments here, and am also exploring opportunities to work in places like Ojai and LA. I’m already weaving together potential prospects and am immensely excited about what the future holds.
Another change is the expansion of my practice to include remote healing. I’ve been treating several people without the necessity of physical touch, and after a string of successes, have decided to incorporate this recent “gift” into my practice! This is a much-welcomed gift, because I can now work beyond the scope of an office and experience less wear and tear on my physical body. More about this next month, stay tuned!

I'm on a mission to finding my true self. Letting go of the old identity I've created to find the new. I would love to have you there to witness and to share the experience.
