CranioSacral Therapy, LGBTQ, Mind, Body, Feelings, Reiki


Hello everyone!

I hope all is well with you. Things are exciting over here; lots of shifts and changes are happening, and it’s all good stuff.

First, I’m closing down the Holistic Center. It’s taken me a while to gather the courage to say it (because then it’s real), but HC has had a good run, and I have big things to do. Working with Earth Medicine has taught me that there’s a beginning, a middle, and an end to everything, and all of it deserves honoring. We will be moving from Traceland Drive the end of May, and we will be in our new spaces by mid June.

My cherished friend, Evanna Bacon, has been the best business partner I could have asked for, and I am so grateful that we were able to spend the last 4 years together. She’s absolutely hilarious, and she has saved my sanity on more than a dozen occasions. Ha. I’m excited for her, and for those of you who have seen her for massage therapy, she can be reached at the same number she has always had.

Next, I am moving to Conscious Healing Therapies in Tupelo, MS, and I am SO thrilled to be offering counseling services and psycho educational groups there!

If you have ever been my CranioSacral therapy and/or energy work client, you may be interested in continuing to work with me. Reach out to me at I have a very special offer for you. I am grateful for your support all these years. I couldn’t have done any of this without you.

For those of you who may not know me well:

I am a provisionally-licensed nationally certified counselor, under supervision with Miki Christy Bryant, LPC-S, NCC, ACHT, at Soulflower Healing Arts in Starkville, MS.

I am a licensed massage therapist (LMT 519), specializing in Integrative CranioSacral Therapy and Somatic Release. I teach CranioSacral Therapy workshops and offer a certification program.

I am a Reiki Master Teacher, and I regularly offer three levels of training, as well as an advanced class for Reiki Masters.

I am an Earth Medicine practitioner, and I train people all over the world in earth honoring practices. If you are interested in Earth Medicine and deeper energy practices, visit my other website.

In my clinical work, I blend evidence-based theory with Earth Medicine principles to create space for my clients to work with sensitive and often painful life material, cultivate embodiment practices, and restore lost power, so they can become more authentic humans. I specialize in somatic (body) issues, including nervous system dysfunction (PTSD, anxiety, and depression), and vagus nerve resilience. I also work with psychospiritual issues and I support folks as they recover from religious maltreatment.

Feel free to reach out to me if you feel that we can work together.

Not Your Normal Distance Reiki Session


If you are at all familiar with Reiki, you know that it is a beautiful, gentle healing energy that, when sent to a willing recipient, goes exactly where it needs to go in order to bring balance and healing to all aspects of that person’s energy bodies.

In a normal distance healing session, the practitioner and the client determine a time to have their remote treatment; when the session begins, the practitioner sends Reiki while the client sits or rests quietly and receives the treatment. Often, the practitioner may send feedback, sharing what was noticed in the client’s energy body while the treatment was given, and the recipient will share particular experiences and insights that occurred during the session.

My sessions are a bit different.

I combine Usui Reiki with Earth Medicine energy practices in order to address specific needs of your four primary energy bodies, so that these non-physical wisdom bodies can self-correct; when you’re balanced and whole in non-physical reality, your physical reality must shift in response.

When you and I schedule time together, the first thing I will have you do is tell me what is going on in a variety of aspects of your life. What’s happening in your physical body? What emotional challenges are you experiencing? Do you have specific things going through your mind all the time? Any particular worries or concerns? What’s your spiritual connection? Do you feel numb? Do you feel too much? Do you take on other people’s emotions/problems/energy? These are some things we will address together in order for me to have a clear picture of what we’re working with together.

Next, we will schedule time to meet up on a secure web based platform called Zoom for our session. You will receive confirmation of the time, and a private link for you to meet me in my virtual treatment space. If you’ve never used Zoom before, you will be prompted to do a quick, painless download on your laptop, or an app download on your phone.

Then I will prepare on my end by calling in our spiritual support, by asking for any insight and guidance that will support you in your healing process, and by creating a healing container for your remote session.

When we meet online, you and I will discuss your situation and concerns, determine what areas we will be focused on, and have our healing session. If there are any emotions, insights or energetic imbalances that need to be addressed and healed, we will address them. Imbalances may include any personal power loss, scattered energy, “soul loss”, lost energetic protection, or unhealthy attachments. Then we will clear your energetic field, restoring your energy bodies to their natural, vibrant state.

As part of the healing treatment, you will be given exercises to cultivate a healthy, strong energy body and energy container so that you can continue to live and interact with others in a good way. Keep in mind that it’s up to you to keep your energy bodies in healthy condition. You will be given simple tools to help you do this, but it’s an ongoing practice that requires commitment in order for you to experience lasting change.

Would you like to work with me?


Here’s how to do it.

Contact me in the form below. Let me know you want to schedule a Reiki/Earth Medicine energy session with me, and I will send you the registration link and intake form so we can get started!

At this time, all of my sessions are $80, no matter what we work on together; each full session is approximately an hour in length. If you are unable to afford the full healing session, but you would like to request distance reiki be sent to you for a specific issue, let me know and I will talk with you about it. At times I have availability for reduced rate and donation based sessions, so always feel free to ask.


Big love,


CranioSacral Therapy, Self-Care

About Dana




I am the proud and grateful co-owner of an integrative holistic practice.  I teach and I train, and I have daily opportunities to witness the healing and transformation of my personal clients and students.  I work part time in the ocean, and part time in other countries, but I am most frequently found at the Holistic Center in Tupelo, MS.

This is what I have found to be true.  I believe that my clients and my students:

  • are powerful, are fully supported, and are able to transform and blossom into their most amazing, authentic selves.

  • know exactly what they need in order to receive the highest and best experience while working with me.

  • are responsible for their own lives and life experiences, and are capable of changing or altering their lives at any moment.

It is my hope that, whether you are my client in my treatment room, my student in one of my trainings, or in the ocean with me swimming with dolphins, you will be inspired to express your radiance and carry your unique medicine into your daily life.

I have had many of you contact me and ask about the benefits of CranioSacral Therapy.

According to the Upledger Institute,

…by complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Motor-Coordination Impairments
  • Colic
  • Autism
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Scoliosis
  • Infantile Disorders
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Stress and Tension-Related Problems
  • Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Post-Surgical Dysfunction

Many of my clients have experienced great relief from chronic pain, headaches, and the symptoms that come with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue.  Clients who are dealing with stressful life issues have reported that CranioSacral Therapy helps them rest better and also helps them deal with crisis by restoring resilience to their central nervous systems.

Does any of the above sound like you?  Someone you know?  If so, please contact me for more information on how this wonderful modality can help you.
