“I was introduced to Nissa and her work through a dear friend and felt called to reach out. I had been feeling disconnected from myself and stuck but wasn’t sure how to go about changing things.  From our initial consultation, I felt instantly at ease with Nissa. She was easy to open up to, compassionate and knowledgeable.  Through a series of weekly check-ins in combination with assignments, Nissa has helped me create great shifts.   Through our work, I was finally able to take the leap to commit to an eating program that is clearing up the majority of my health concerns,  (something I had been wanting to do for years but had hesitated on). I’ve adopted daily routines that I believe will be with me for the rest of my life.  But more than the tangible concrete changes, the greatest gift from my time with Nissa was learning that little movements can have huge effects.  Previous to my work with her, I was trying to tackle certain issues in my life only when the solution was presented as a whole.  Nissa gifted me with the lesson that we don’t need the answer, just to be open.  Through a series of small rituals, routines and tasks Nissa taught me not only how to create space for myself, but how little energetic shifts can have huge impacts.   I used perfectionism as a crutch and excuse as to why I wouldn’t try something and through working with Nissa I was able to let go of so many negative thought patterns and just be open.  I don’t need to understand why a subtle change to my morning wake up ritual or daily shower shifts the energy of my day, I just know it does.  And knowing this has helped create so much more space for me to feel open to so many possibilities.  I’m so grateful to Nissa and look forward to seeing how these shifts continue to affect my life.”

“I have been seeing Nissa for treatments since 2016 — in that time I have experienced several (dozens?) of hands-on sessions incorporating the range of her highly skilled and sensitive modalities : massage, facial, biodynamic craniosacral therapy, manual lymph drainage. I experienced tremendous shifts in my awareness and body during that work together and was amazed at how my work with Nissa softly accompanied me on a journey of self discovery and illumination — sessions with her were akin to a gentle flashlight shining towards my inner world, without judgment, with patience, and with the touch of a kind and accounting angel, healing with a mutual grace that emerges through the intention of the practices at play.

“I moved to Los Angeles last year and was very excited at the opportunity to work with Nissa on a six-week program from afar. We began the day before my 37th birthday, two months into LA’s covid-imposed shelter in place had set in, and four days before George Floyd’s murder. I was feeling tense, anxious, and fatigued.

“Based on our weekly check-ins, Nissa offered ‘homework’ (simple, approachable, daily life practices) which noticeably cleared stagnant energy in my body, my patterns, and my relationships. The daily life practices I had slowly begun to incorporate into my routine had become quiet therapies, offering strength, gathering, and a way of ‘starting close in’ — noticing how my body feels and acting from that place rather than the place of reacting to the world and its current friction with time, rhythm, and peace.

“Within the duration of our six sessions, I : quit a toxic habit with morning coffee, confronted challenging themes with my partner, stated my needs in a professional relationship, secured my first art studio, and a second car for our family. All things that would have felt impossible or easily avoided before Nissa did her gentle flashlight magic from afar.

“This program is for anyone who shies away from programs, for anyone who can see and articulate the goal but the obstacles to get there feel too daunting to begin the first step. For anyone who struggles with discomfort around changing patterns, even though those patterns may not even serve any longer. What was under my casual questioning around my coffee habit was an ill and outdated belief system — and with simple deliberation and a swap of a warm morning liquid, the patterns tied to that outdated belief system, too, began to change. I can’t wait to see what continues to emerge with these tools in my kit. And hope Nissa will have me back for another six-week program soon! : )”
