Ready to heal, but don’t know where to begin?
Let’s fix that.
1) Trying to explain weird symptoms to your physician who is looking at his watch, or worse, like you are crazy.
2) Medications that you are worried about because of side effects, potential addiction, or that just aren't working for you.
Here, my mission is to not only give immediate pain relief, but to dive down into the root of pain and stress-related illness.
I hope you will enjoy the many resources provided here to dramatically change your health and your life.
WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE TODAY?
Seeking A Safe Space?
Need pain relief but worried that your practitioner won’t understand your needs around anxiety, depression or trauma? No Problem.
Tabitha brings her background as a former Counselor into her Mind-Body practice, which enables her to understand your needs, create a safe space, and even to incorporate support directly into your treatments!
Individuals from all backgrounds, cultures, and sexual orientations will find a welcoming space here.
Do people call you “too sensitive?” Maybe you get overwhelmed easily, feel deeply, or are empathic — for some, to the point where they may feel it in their body or get sick when overstimulated.
Although these traits are normal for 20% of the population, they are often misunderstood. As a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) herself, be assured that Tabitha understands your specialized needs for mindful touch & presence.
If you have been a “doer” and a “giver” your entire life, being laid flat by chronic pain or illness can be especially painful.
Let Tabitha help support you in rebuilding the healthy habits and lifestyle changes that can not only bring you lasting health, but a new sense of self-esteem, self-care, and self-fulfillment so that you can serve others from a sustainable place for years to come.
Do You Work With Children?
Children get tense and anxious just like any adult -- and are even more likely to hold their feelings in their bodies. Tabitha has pediatric sessions available for ages 4-12.
KIND WORDS FROM THE AWOB COMMUNITY…
SUPPORT FOR CANCER"I have always felt safe, comfortable, and at ease when Tabitha is administering a healing massage or an acupuncture treatment....referred to me by a long-time friend...I was so impressed with her caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable personality and massage technique, that now 14 years later, I continue to see her , and have referred her to others seeking an excellent massage therapist...
Prior to my cancer surgery, she provided me with...deep tissue, shiatsu and acupressure that relaxed me and allowed me to be more calm and prepared for my surgery...I continued to see her after the surgery, to enhance my healing and well-being. She...always checks to see how I am feeling, and is...respectful and thoughtful as a healer.
SPINAL STENOSIS & NERVE PAIN"I had reservations about acupuncture, but not anymore. Tabitha has greatly helped with the pain in my back and subsequently helps with the nerve pain...
I do have to take pain meds but before Tabitha I was having break-through pain just 2-3 hours after a dose. Now I can go longer, which my pain management doctor appreciates.
I would highly recommend Tabitha as she really asks questions about your diagnosis of your problem areas and also does research to see how she can help. She has made a difference in my life with the acupuncture and massage. Just wish I could have both every day!"
STARTED AS A SKEPTIC"I make no secret about my distrust and skepticism regarding 'alternative' medicine... However...Tabitha Marsh...is honest and genuine in her approach to her acupuncture and massage treatments and I and many other people I highly respect have benefited from her ministrations enormously...
People: If you suffer from chronic pain, she may be able to help relieve it, and if not, guide you towards other effective treatment, Eastern, Western or whatever in between…I promise that even chatting with her will start to reduce some of those aches, pains and stress.
SHINGLES AFTER ONE TREATMENT & LOW BACK PAIN"The shingles improved dramatically. I only have one little bump. WOW! Amazing stuff, thank you.
I didn't take the Acyclovir, am just keeping a close eye on it...
My back was also MUCH better after Sat. treatment."
LIFE HAS CHANGED"When I started seeing Tabitha so much in my life has changed. Not only am I healing through massage but I have learned to listen to my body in the process which is huge not only for healing but living a healthy life...
She is a great listener and makes it easy for you to talk to her about your treatment...I highly recommend her."
10 YEARS OF NIGHTMARES GONE"About 10 years earlier I had dived into a swimming pool that turned out to be only 4 feet deep...In the years that followed I had several bad dreams about this episode and would wake up shaking.
After discussing this with Tabitha she offered a…reset via her acupuncture/massage therapy. It is amazing how successful it has been. I do avoid thinking about the trauma, but haven’t had a bad dream about it for a few years now."
THANK-YOU!"You've been wonderful and I feel honoured to be among your many thankful patients...
Thank-you for giving so much care so tenderly, so expertly."
