Traditional Midwifery and Birth Advocacy
with Mayumi Miller
Mayumi practices reiki and vibrational energy work. Both are hands-on forms of healing. A typical session with her looks like sitting face to face and discussing the reasons for coming, what the client’s intentions for healing are followed by the hands on energy work which takes place on a massage table.
Clients come for physical ailments, emotional and spiritual distress. During sessions we explore the client’s emotional and physical state, as that gives clues to where they may be feeling stuck. Once we uncover their pain points we are able to sync up energetically so Mayumi can hold space for them to shift.
If trauma has occurred we are able to unpack the stories around it and understand the trauma in new light, with new awareness so the client may experience more agency in their relationship to it. The hands-on portion of the healing session is an opportunity to reset and restore the energetic and physical body so the client can experience more peace and ease in their life.
Healing sessions are $150 per session and last approximately 1.5 hrs.
