Terrie helps you change your life by facilitating the access of your own intuition. She has the ability to ease you in the release of the pain from the past, realize more clarity in your future, obtain a feeling that life is easy or even improve the income you want.

Tiffani Pelleter-Bacquaert

Tiffani has been a massage therapist dedicated to health and wellness for over 20 years. She has experienced and treated many health challenges that have inspired a passion for a lifestyle committed to wellness. Although the foundation of her work is deep myofascial therapy, for the past several years she has been studying Cranial Sacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation (Upledger Institute) as well as Osteopathic friction (Ben Benjamin). Also, since 2008, she has been a certified yoga teacher, adding mediation shortly after. Currently her journey into authentically serving as a healing presence for others has led her to MUIH, the alternative medicine sister university of Georgetown Medical School, where she is nearly finished obtaining a Masters in Health and Wellness Coaching specializing in nutrition. Her foundational therapy involves deep, slow gliding strokes along the trajectory of the inherent postural orientation of the individual, which encourages the body to remember its natural disposition. This therapy opens the body to proper circulation and efficient movement, and, in her experience, is generally what people are looking for when they want deep tissue massage and pain relief. She also offers a 10 session protocol of Structural Integration, which is intended to completely reorient the body’s relationship to gravity as well as Cranial Sacral Therapy which restores the body/mind/spirit to harmony and balance through re-establishing proper fluid distribution throughout the body with gentle touch and intuitive dialogue which frees up the energetic blockages that cause pain and misalignment.
