" Meeting Paula was like meeting a friend for the first time. She is so incredibly intuitive and speaks my astrological language. She understood exactly what I needed healed, probably more so than I did! I wish I could visit her more often, but I was just in town for a short time. I will definitely be reaching out to her for virtual sessions in the future. Thank you Paula!"

"We absolutely LOVED the Despacho Ceremony with Paula. It was the perfect way to kick-off a transformational retreat. Her kind and open-hearted energy translated into the ceremony and long thereafter. Each participant has been raving about their individual astrology readings as well! We're so lucky to have worked with Paula and I highly recommend her if you're leading a powerful healing retreat in Sedona!"

"I know you're so very familiar with the outcomes of your shamanic work, but I just had to drop you a line! Although I expected change, I didn't expect to feel this good and relieved already! I expected many more sessions to be at this level. I can still feel that we have work to do, but I just wanted you to know how much improved I feel already. I feel so much lighter and have so much more energy today. I know I shouldn't be amazed, but I still am. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!"

"Paula is an exceptional practitioner in the world of holistic healing.
There is nothing like a body whisperer who can read the needs of an individual like she does. Paula read my energy field like a novel and applied her masterful skills to unwind my tightly guarded posture and deeply held disappointments. Paula’s peaceful nature, soothing words, and respectful presence filled me with peace and tranquility. I feel light as a feather and happy. I highly recommend Paula for the best holistic experience in Sedona!"
Holly H, Sedona, AZ 2019
"I found my treatments with Paula very healing. She sent me onto a path of betterment. Paula enhanced my ability to make dreams come true with her fine tuned healing crafts, helping make recovery life long and lasting. She has the gifts of a modern day medicine woman."

Sedona has been attracting people on a path to healing and even enlightenment for many generations. Situated in the heart of sacred Native American land, it is also home to many earth-based energy-medicine practitioners or Shamans. Shaman is taken from the word “saman”, meaning “one who knows”. This originated in ancient Siberia and was used to describe the members of their society who performed the medicine role. The term has caught on and now refers to someone who works with energetic practices in an element based, native tradition to bring about healing. Going back as far as 12,000 years, Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. They treat trauma/ailments/illness by mending the soul. This can be done by alleviating damage affecting the soul or spirit which then restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman’s path is a path of power. It is about owning who and what you are and establishing your own presence. By doing this, spirit can work through the practitioner to allow the client or community to heal themselves. The shaman is there to facilitate the goal to recover health and well-being. It is not about fixing – it is about holding the highest intention for the best outcome possible. Our health can be affected by both internal stresses such as negative feelings, trauma, life-long patterns of behavior and low self-esteem or external stresses – work, family, relationships, environment, accidents etc. Shamans know our bodies are a miracle of engineering and true healing can only be accomplished when the individual(s) tap into their natural ability for the body to repair itself
That is the role of the shaman or energy-medicine practitioner. How is this done? It begins with creating a sacred space where healing can occur, using certain archetypes to define the area. It is establishing an energetic boundary that allows the shaman to step in and own the space so there is no other energetic influence to interfere. Shamanic practitioners may also journey/travel to different realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the individual or the community. Medicine wheels and ceremony are used to engage the individual in setting intention and allows them to call in their own strengths and gifts and/or acknowledge challenges and disruptive patterns. Shamanic practitioners may bring back power animals, soul parts or gifts to support the person/community and use divine spirit guides to assist them.
The true goal is the restoration of balance in mind, body and spirit, which can result in a full or partial return to health and wellness. It can also help to bring acceptance and peace to the inevitability that we are all part of a cycle of life with a beginning and end. Much depends on the willingness of the individual to work with their practitioner and trust in the outcome.
In Sedona, a variety of different shamanic traditions can be found, including Native American, Andean (South America) and Mayan (Mexico). Many Western teachers have worked with the native medicine men and women where these traditions originated and have adapted those practices to work as a compliment to allopathic medicine here. Modern day shamans use similar fundamental approaches. They work in concert with the elements of earth, water, fire and air. They move to the rhythm of Mother Earth and call in Father Sky. They are here for the healing of all their relations. They use their ability to tap into the incredible energy of the local vortexes and sacred places to provide the individuals and community with a way to employ this new approach from a timeless tradition.

Craniosacral Therapy Benefits People with Chronic Neck Pain By Jerrilyn Cambron, DC, PhD
"Approximately 30 percent of the population will experience neck pain in any given year. Half of these cases will resolve quickly with or without treatment. However, the other 50 percent will continue experiencing pain or will have recurrent symptoms. Common scientifically based treatments for neck pain include epidural corticosteroid injections, exercise, facet joint radiofrequency denervation, muscle relaxants, and surgery. Even though these treatments may be beneficial, many also involve potentially serious side effects. Fortunately, new research focuses on less invasive treatments such as craniosacral therapy."
