Donna does wonders with her hands and I highly recommend you see her for both CranioSacral and massage therapy. I felt completely relaxed and zen after my sessions, and the pain in my neck felt so much better! I could actually move and turn my neck again. It's amazing. She is also really knowledgeable about nutrition, how to help people get healthy, and relieve pain. Can't wait to come back for more!

I posted on a Facebook group Im in and asked if anyone could help with a massage for my head pain and migraines. Donna was the first to answer on the post and I called her instantly. She booked me for 2 pm.She was caring, so thoughtful, listened to wear the described pain was and really wanted to release the pain Ive been having. She used cranial sacral therapy with massage. I was in a little bit of pain after my first appt, but afterwards I felt like a million bucks. I booked a second appt with her a month later. And again just amazing relief... Ive been to a couple massage therapists, but never have I felt a instant relief and just putting all trust into a stranger I just met. I did though and Im so happy I did. Now after two appts I can say the massages have really helped. In the 15+ years Ive had with migraines this is the first time I can say that I am out of the migraine fog, my balance is more normal, my body feels amazing after the massage and knock on wood no head pain!Its amazing what touch does to the body.I have my third appointment next month. So happy to have made the post on a FB group that day. I may have never met her if I hadnt.Thank you Donna so much!

Donna is my favorite bodyworker. She seriously has magic hands, and I leave feeling lighter and 'freer' in my body after a craniosacral & massage session. She's really good at listening and makes me feel cared for when I come in. Self care isn't a luxury in my profession, so this is an important part of my wellness care routine.

Birdie takes the time to understand your needs before your appointment. She adjust her technique based on those needs and comfort. She also greets each person with a smile and a positive attitude. Give her a try. You won’t be disappointed.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    All services require a detailed intake form. If you are seeing me for nutrition I first do a free 30 minute discovery call to see if we are a good fit. If we both agree to move forward the initial consultation is in-depth with several forms to fill out. Getting detailed information helps to form a plan for long term goals with your health. If you are seeing me for body work the process is simple. The intake form is completed. On your first visit we talk for a few minutes about your goal for the massage and I tell you about the modalities that may be used during the session. We talk about pressure and your specific pain points.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied functional nutrition at The Nutritional Therapy Association and received my certificate in 2017. I graduated from Irene’s Myomassology in Southfield, MI in February of 2020. I am currently enrolled in Upledger Institute for Craniosacral Therapy and have completed CST1. I will complete CST2 this March. I am fascinated with how the human body works and it’s innate ability to heal.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I got started in holistic wellness because of my own health issues. Conventional methods weren’t working for fibromyalgia and Lyme disease. So I turned to nutrition and alternative healing methods. I eventually added bodywork to my own protocols and decided I wanted to be able to support my clients with massage and craniosacral therapy as well.
