Welcome to Body Mind Essentials

**Please note that I am not accepting massage therapy clients at this time.  I am still regularly teaching infant massage, both group and private classes, and professional certification, and providing essential oil consultations.


Body Mind Essentials is a Buffalo based wellness practice that offers infant massage instruction for parents  as well as professional certification trainings for those that would like to become Certified Educators of Infant Massage (CEIM). I also offer aromatherapy education and consultation services including workshops on essential oil use for family health and wellness and professional use in holistic practice.

Infant Massage Instruction for Parents: Have a little one that you would like to embrace with nurturing touch? I am a Certified Educator of Infant Massage through Infant Massage USA and offer several ongoing community-based infant massage classes where you can learn to massage and communicate with your little one. Infant massage may help to relieve stress (parent and baby), enhance bonding, benefit sleep, and often helps with colic, gas, fussiness and more.  I have taught in our Buffalo community for over 5 years and am happy to share with families!

Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM): Wish you could teach infant massage classes in your community or as part of your work/practice in reaching out to families?  I offer the 4 day certification course through Infant Massage USA.  Please see schedule or contact me for additional details.

Pregnant and preparing for your birth? While I am not currently offering massage services (I am certified in pre and post natal pregnancy massage) I am available to teach ‘Comforting Touch’ sessions in your own home, to learn relaxation and touch techniques that you can use during labor.  I also offer an Aromatherapy for Birth Kit, a beautifully packaged kit of custom blended massage oils and inhalers for labor and delivery. Whether you are birthing at home, birthing center or at the hospital, this kit is perfect for fatigue, anxiety, and labor discomfort. Please click here for more information.  A beautiful gift for a soon to be mom!

Aromatherapy interest?  I offer private consultation where we can review your emotional, physical and spiritual needs, and custom blend essential oils for your personal use.  Have a recipe but not the oils?  I can create the blend for you, and charge by the drop.  Or, join a workshop including:

  • Essential Oils for Family Health and Wellness
  • Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Labor and Delivery
  • Essential Oil Blending for Massage Therapists
  • Essential Oil Use for Skin Care

Please see the workshop schedule for upcoming classes near you.

At such a precious, honored time in life, I am happy to offer services for you and your family!
