I love networking and am passionate about women helping other women. There are so many wonderful women in Austin with small businesses!
Here is a list of the fabulous women I know and the businesses I love to support.
An entire team of amazing birth and post-partum doulas. They offer sessions to explore which birth options might be best for you, prenatal support groups, post-partum “mamas blooming” groups and so much more, in addition to the traditional doula roles.
PHYSICAL THERAPY & PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPY
Alicia Poche, PT, MPT, CIDN, CECP
Physical therapy plus NET (neuro-emotional technique to address the emotional layer)
Stephanie Hahn, DPT
She does pelvic floor, regular PT and also pilates!
Lady Bird PT
Pelvic floor physical therapy
PREGNANCY RESOURCES / BIRTH CLASS
Dr. Laine Morales
Pure Light Chiropractic
She specializes in the whole family but my most important referrals are my pregnant and post-partum mamas – your hips will thank you.
SOMATIC EXPERIENCING (MENTAL HEALTH)
Miranda Jane Counseling
Miranda gave me some very valuable tools to help deal with my anxiety around stressful situations. She gently guided me, in the most compassionate and wonderful way, as I discovered how my body manifests stress, how transient these sensations are and how I can work with these sensations to regulate my nervous system and make myself feel safe again.
Upper Star Acupuncture
NEUROKINETIC THERAPY & KI HARA
This is the perfect therapy for figuring out dysfunctional movement patterns, due to its incredible specificity. Shannon analyzes your gait and has you do a series of resisted movements until she finds the muscles that are “offline” and the ones that are compensating for them. That glute medius that’s been asleep for a while? She’ll wake it up .
The Voice Clinic
Icy doesn’t only teach you how to sing, she helps you “find your voice.” She takes a functional, whole body approach to voice lessons, addressing structural elements, emotional traumas, hormonal changes and many other factors that can be affecting your vocal folds. Her knowledge of herbs and natural remedies allows her to provide support in between lessons. She has a great e-book available on her website.
INTUITIVE TAROT READING
Miss Melinda’s Metaphysical Services
If you find yourself in a challenging situation, Miss Melinda can help you find clarity. I have used her for candle magic for years – IT WORKS!
PSYCHIC INTUITIVE, HUMAN DESIGN READINGS
Lauren Kay Wyatt
I have worked with Lauren since 2017 – her guidance has been invaluable to me. She is like me in that she incorporates a variety of different modalities into her work; she references your Human Design, astrology, Akashic Records and many other things I don’t need to understand. I just know her guidance has never steered me wrong.
Tune My Biofield
We all have a biomagnetic field that is beyond our skin but a part of us. We often hold trauma and detrimental energy in this field, but a tuning can help us to feel more in balance with our naturally preferred resonance. Working with Shannon made me feel more harmonious within myself and supported me in letting go of some old “noise” that was no longer serving me.
WILDCRAFTED HERBAL REMEDIES
MotherHylde Etsy Shop
I use multiple products from this lovely shop – most notably Brigid’s and Sacred Union Massage Oils, but also the Bliss Elixir, Beyond the Veil and other tinctures.
BODY CUPPING SUPPLIES
This is a small woman-owned business that only sells cups and cupping supplies – I buy my glass bells for lymphatic drainage here, as well as the two types of silicone cups for myofascial release cupping.
HANDCRAFTED SOAPS, BODY BUTTERS AND ROOM SPRAY
I am convinced that every woman on earth needs to have the Coastal room spray in her life. Plant-based and made with the highest quality oils and botanical ingredients.
Whenever I am not massaging, I am always wearing long, flowing earrings by Moonlit Ritual. In my fantasy, I look like a mystical curandera, although I probably just look like a woman who dressed up a boring outfit with some really awesome earrings. Shay makes a variety of styles, but the Selene collection is my favorite. They look like long feathers but they are actually made from cut silk and leather. Definitely “conversation piece” jewelry so be prepared.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE CURIOUS AS TO WHAT MY PARTNER DOES …
GENETICS EXPERT AND HEALTH COACH
It’s hard to describe exactly what Ryan does, because it’s so interdisciplinary and all-encompassing. You might just have to visit the website to really get a sense of what he can offer you. What he has done for me: genetics analysis, homeopathic medicine, bioregulatory medicine, autoimmune support. His consultation takes a couple of hours – he really works together with you to tease out the FULL picture of what is going on with you: lifestyle analysis, diet, genetics, methylation, hormonal imbalances, birth and other traumas…the ultimate self-discovery tour.
