"Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself." Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

My path as a practitioner is a by-product of: learning, healing chronic pain, and a desire that others may also heal. I was ordained as a spiritual healer by Gloria Bennish in 1996, and have attended natural healing and energy healing workshops for 20 years, including permaculture, nutrition, aromatherapy, foot reflexology, and community ceremony of many types. I honor all paths.

My path as a practitioner is a by-product of: learning, healing chronic pain, and a desire that others may also heal. I was ordained as a spiritual healer by Gloria Bennish in 1996, and have attended natural healing and energy healing workshops for 20 years, including permaculture, nutrition, aromatherapy, foot reflexology, and community ceremony of many types. I honor all paths. 

I am former faculty of the Brenneke School of Massage, and Massage Practitioner since 2004. In 2011 I began my Cranio-Sacral Therapy studies with Ursula Popp here in Seattle, and certified in 2015. 

My background includes: teaching Re-Evaluation Counseling, Vipassana Meditation, Yoga, organic gardening, and co-founding and managing sustainability organizations. Over the years I've received many kinds of natural therapies from many talented practitioners and teachers. I continue to do so and hope you do too.

I am also certified in Pregnancy Massage, and the mother of a 9 year-old boy. 

In my spare time, I play with my son, enjoy family and friends, meditate, write, do yoga, cardio or walk. I love to pick blueberries while camping in the mountains or to be on big open water. I love Seattle because of the climate of healing; so many people practicing and sharing healing ways.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

I had a lovely massage. I felt relaxed and light by the end of it. I'll come back soon.

What a wonderful treat of a 90 minute massage, so deeply relaxing. Broehe instinctively knew the places of holding tension and sore muscles without me having to direct her to them. Feels like such a gift to have a deeply relaxing and therapeutic treatment.

Broehe's space is really comfortable and she's very attentive. She is generous with her time and the care she provides, and she has great insights to share that are beneficial to my overall wellbeing.

I really enjoyed the craniosacral treatment by Broehe and hope to return again for more treatments. I felt very relaxed upon leaving and better able to cope with my busy life and chronic pain issues I have.

It was a great session. I'm glad Broehe focused on helping my congestion, that made a difference. I was so grateful to get the Yoga Therapist information also, exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!

My time at Rosewater is always healing and reflective and valuable.

Broehe has the magical talent of allowing her client to rest into her support, while encouraging breath and awareness with sensitive areas of pain. She is incredibly intuitive, as she can sense where pain and discomfort are stored, and warmly helps her clients explore the source of discomfort with curiosity and empathy. It's always a joy to visit with Broehe, as I walk in sometimes feeling unbalanced or simply "off," and walk out with a gentle wave of relaxation that I carry for weeks afterwards. Thank you for what you do!

She's an intuitive gem

I made an appointment to see Broehe because I've been experiencing a rattle noise in my ear. The room where the appointment took place was very peaceful and relaxing with pleasant natural smells and gentle music. Broehe herself was extremely present, understanding and compassionate. When I unexpectedly became emotional explaining a health issue, Broehe allowed me to "come undone" and didn't rush the process but rather sat with me until I felt ready to move on. I felt she was sincere in expressing empathy for my situation. The whole session was handled with the same respect and care. I'll definitely continue to receive treatment from Broehe until it's no longer needed.

This was my first appointment with Broehe. I cannot say enough good things - she is an extremely talented massage therapist - I was so delighted with her intuition and skill! She got to know my body, honed in on the problem spots, and gave me a glorious 90-minute relaxing and healing massage. Her manner is lovely - for my style, she interacted just enough to learn what I needed and then left me to breathe and interject when I needed her to know something. She has a calming presence and such beautiful energy. I made an appointment for nest week and intend to keep going back!
