Individual & Group Sessions for Adults
As your somatic practitioner, midwife, and herbalist I will approach each session specifically to meet your needs. Healing sessions incorporate somatic experiencing and craniosacral therapy to gently explore, re-pattern and resolve early trauma and imprinting. It is my joy to support you in this transformative work. In-person, Skype and phone sessions available.
"I've had many years of body work, everything from acupuncture, deep tissue massage, chiropractic, reiki, craniosacral to zero balancing. One of the main things that I appreciate about Chanti is that she's able to combine several of these techniques into one treatment that is personal and customized for what I need at any given time. Her ability to do this is seamless, compassionate and effective. Chanti works on a higher level and the results are truly synergistic. It's a pleasure to experience Chanti work and to learn from her in the process."

This supports your ability to resolve stuck patterns, obstacles, fears or past trauma keeping you from having the joyful life that you desire and that is your birthright.
Somatic Experiencing® is a body-oriented approach to healing trauma. This approach is based on a deep understanding of nervous system physiology and is grounded on principles of sophisticated trauma healing. As a Somatic Experiencing® practitioner and a midwife trained in pre and perinatal birth therapy, many people come to see me to heal trauma from conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and early childhood. Early developmental trauma can create a template for later challenges, and healing these core imprints can allow one to find greater freedom, ease, resiliency and actively engage in present life. Sessions can include hands-on bodywork, utilizing biodynamic craniosacral therapy. I am also offer Somatic Experiencing® sessions via Skype or phone.
This workshop is an opportunity to explore early imprints around conception, birth and postpartum time with a small group and skilled support and presence. When you are given the space to explore early imprinting, in connection to a present day intention, you are able to understand and integrate how your nervous system developed and how this affects you today. A Birthing Yourself Womb Surround includes experiential work as well as cognitive learning based on the latest research in neurophysiology and bonding and attachment. Conception, birth and postpartum is an important time in our lives. This is a space where you can safely and gently access early imprints for deeper understanding of how you meet your life and challenges, in a supportive environment. You will have the opportunity to re-negotiate and resolve early patterning to experience deep healing.

Flower Essences, Herbs & Homeopathy
Flower essences are safe and gentle solutions using the extractive power of the sun to diffuse the essence of a plant into a solution of water. Each plant has a signature, the shape or way it grows shows us how to use it, for example, asparagus grows in shoots and pushes up through the ground, and it supports spinal alignment and clear focus. I utilize The Lily Circle Flower Essences and Bach Flower Remedies. The Lily Circle Flower Essences, created by Julia Graves, are the archetypal feminine flower and are particularly apt for use in fertility and conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenting. They are also useful for supporting relationships, releasing fears, healing from trauma, and finding your purpose. Herbs can support your body in many ways, adding nutrients and minerals to your diet, balancing reproductive health, supporting healthy sleep, reducing inflammation, and promoting healthy functioning of all your body systems. I have studied Western Herbalism for twenty years with master herbalists all over the world. I specialize in using herbs, acute homeopathy, and supplements to support reproductive health, including: fertility, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and newborn/children's health.
