Welcome To Madrona Services
Madrona Services grew out of my desire to offer multiple facets of care. I have developed the following areas of care, experience and knowledge over a lifetime. I love all of the subjects listed below (also in the drop down menu) and each expresses an aspect of myself which I have nurtured and cherished.
My philosophy of life is closely aligned with my philosophy for healing.
I believe that we are here on this Earth to help each other; to heal, to nurture, to become more of who we truly are and to express whatever that is creatively and with joy. So often we feel so very far from this sense of our True Self and that causes us and others immense suffering. My intention is to offer what guidance and support I can, gleaned from my own personal experiences as well as my studies, to assist others on the path of healing and self-discovery. I do so with humility, humor and compassion.
“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.” Mary Oliver
Qigong (pronounced ‘chee-gong’) is an ancient Chinese healing practice of movement and breathing. The qi (energy) is cultivated/practiced/developed (gong) over time to bring healing, balance and vitality to the body. There are three main applications of qigong: Medical Qigong, Martial Qigong and Spiritual Qigong. Tai Chi is an example of Martial Qigong.
My focus is Medical/Healing Qigong. One way to think of it is as a movement therapy. It is a gentle method but subtly powerful.
Pain Relief Coaching (PRC)
Whether you have a niggling old injury that just will not abate, or you have a history of chronic pain, I can help you improve the quality of your life and coach you toward greater healing and pain reduction.
My research and continuing exploration of healing and the body as well as my own personal experiences in healing have led me to offer Medical Advocacy.
I am a strong advocate for the patient and at the same time appreciate the challenges of providers, having an inside view into their world.
