CLAIRE STILLMAN

Ever grateful to family, clients, teachers, friends, guides and all that is as I participate in this work of body-mind-emotion-energy-spirit. Lucky mother of 3 extraordinary daughters, wife of my big-hearted bff, Eric Stillman, and matriarch of 2 doggies and a kitty cat. My family is at the forefront of my life while in service to community. I spent much of my adulthood full-speed in both entrepreneurial and corporate roles, eventually experiencing catalysts of profound joy & deep grief that steered me toward a community focus and the healing arts as a profession. Practicing professionally since 2014 and holding space for Big Heart Healing Arts, I’ve learned the balance range of effort and ease is the sweetest spot of all.

Available for Thai Massage with Acupressure, Tui Na, cupping, sound healing, CranioSacral Therapy, custom yoga and Healing Touch energy work.


 

CHUNCHIEH BRUCE SUN

With an ardent belief that maintaining qi balance is one of the best ways to relieve discomforts of disease, Chunchieh (“Bruce”)’s treatment methods of balancing qi movement in the body include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, cupping therapy, guasha therapy and/or moxibustion. He also believes that using a minimum of needles and/or herbs can reserve qi to help reach the optimum impact of qi balance. Dedicated to continuous learning, Bruce travels internationally to learn different Chinese medicine systems to absorb into, transform and enrich his style of healing arts.

ALISSA EFFLAND

Twenty years ago, Alissa met her decade-long mentor, Minga Lily, who, through Thai Yoga Therapy and health coaching, helped her experience healing from chronic illness, inspiring her study of Thai Yoga Therapy extensively in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The power of the Thai meridian work led to her study of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese medical massage (Tui Na). Personal experience with CranioSacral Therapy initiated her own healing to jump to a new level, leading to multiple and ongoing trainings with the Upledger Institute. Facilitating & witnessing her clients’ dramatic shifts and deep healing through a combination of the 3 complementary modalities, Thai Yoga Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy and Acupressure, is deeply rewarding. In her private life Alissa enjoys West-African drumming, yoga, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing and being in nature with her husband and identical twin daughters.

MARYA BRADLEY

Over the course of my life I have sought and dedicated myself to explore ancient and deep pathways of enquiry, disciplines and practices which open us to come into contact with the mysterious source and ground of our being. In such encounters, we are drawn to be present not only to the mystery of our own being, but to experience a healing and transformative recognition of the continuity of our being with the sacred source of life itself that supports us and connects us in the vast continuum of life. In my work in and practice of the subtly powerful and profound healing art, Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy, I offer to hold, witness and support others in their healing process of coming into contact with an embodied remembering of this deep ground and source of healing. It is beautiful and powerful work, I feel graced to support and witness.  

In this work I draw on my pursuit and experience of different pathways of healing, and on the ancient and living wisdom of many teachers, teachings and disciplines, including most recently a two-year training with Franklyn Sills and Cherionna Menzam-Sills at the Karuna Institute in England, as well as years of teaching, study and practice in various strands of yoga and meditation, purification and subtle energy healing. These include branches of kundalini and hatha yoga, shamanic yoga, SourcePoint Therapy® energy healing, and various forms of meditation including vipassana. In all my work I learn from and am inspired by the sacred presence of nature and all our creature kin, the gift of love and friendship, my life-long love of poetry, language, music, dance and the human search for meaning, justice and truth.

Available for Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and SourcePoint Therapy® energywork.
