Lashanna (she/her) is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Washington’s own Northwest Academy for the Healing Arts. During a massage, her goal is always a flowing conversation between her hands and your tissue. “My touch is not a pointed deep touch, yet we access deep tissues without you leaving in pain. Causing pain is counter-intuitive to how I walk this life. ”
Her end of life work is rooted in a community death care model. Lashanna holds a solid grounded space for her clients, bringing a great comfort to a time that can feel out of control. Her knowledge, skill and experience allow her to assist people and their family in the time of dying. Lashanna not only works with folx imminently facing death or who have been given a diagnosis; she also works with those living their life fully and want a doula relationship in place for when death does come closer or an accident occurs.
As Board President of A Sacred Passing, Lashanna joins in community collaboration, creating engaging and productive death and dying educational opportunities for community and professionals. While instructing massage students or doulas, she is able to impress the importance of trust and honoring autonomy.
She is certified in MBSR-T, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens. Combining her formal education and experience with meditation, games and art, Lashanna has created an engaging 8 -10 week program for teens.
Lashanna practices from an in home studio that creates an environment that bathes you with light energy. The grounds are lush with herb and vegetable gardens, chickens and love.
