Welcome!


"The Lightcap Touch" is an integrated bodywork therapy that features Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®, Shiatsu, Therapeutic Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Unwinding, Geriatric Massage and Elder Care. The integrating of bodywork allows me to design treatments specific to each of my clients, from adolescent to geriatric needs. Long term illness, physical injury or emotional distress can result in muscle tension, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. Through the power of compassionate touch my desire is to help you relax, rejuvenate, and restore the balance in your body, mind, heart and spirit.


In the scope of my private practice I work with psychotherapists and family counselors at Building Bridges, an interdisciplinary healing context that sees the whole family as its greatest strength. The incorporation of touch therapy and psychotherapy can enhance the benefits of emotional healing, while helping the body heal.


The foundation of my work is Traditional Chinese Medicine, Five Element Shiatsu and Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®; treating the whole body as one system to balance and restore the natural flow of energy. Experience a treatment and rediscover the quiet within.


"Jin Shin Do" means "Way of the Compassionate Spirit."

Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release "armoring" or chronic tension, balance the "Qi" or energy, and improve vitality.  This clothes-on method helps relieve stress and trauma-related problems.  A unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acu- theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy, Jin Shin Do® acupressure was originated by Iona Marsaa Teeguarden.


Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® is not intended for the diagnosis, treatment or cure of disease. It is a relaxation therapy, and a useful adjunct to licensed, qualified medical or psychological care. For any persistent pain or symptom, even a seemingly minor one, the reader is strongly encouraged to consult a medical doctor. When used in conjunction with standard medical treatment, the Jin Shin Do® Acupressure technique can assist the healing process by releasing tension, decreasing stress and encouraging a sense of increased well-being.

Liked the explanations for how things work in your body with muscles, fascia, etc. Patrice's attention to details of what I said or what my body did!!

Patrice takes a personal interest in her clients. She is sensitive to the needs of the client and listens intently to what the client needs and uses her many techniques in order to address them. She is gifted in her skill and care. Very grateful I found her many, many years ago. I can not recommend her highly enough.

Patrice's exceptional skills have done what nothing else has been able to accomplish: After 1 month I am for all practical purposes PAIN FREE after a stroke nearly 4 years ago and a diagnosis of spinal stenosis/disintegrating discs last September. Her combination of methods and intuitiveness are truly amazing. I recommend Patrice without reservation to anyone having physical, stress related or ongoing health issues.

Patrice has a remarkable "intuitive" sense of what work to do and where. and it produces great results in my body in hard-to-impact things.
