ShamanIntegrated Bodywork is a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach to massage that combines bodywork techniques from a variety of disciplines for a holistic healing experience, balancing mind, body, and soul.

Ulrike holds a Certificate in Integrated Bodywork from The Healing Bodywork Centre in Vancouver, where she was trained in Swedish massage as well as the basics of lymphatic drainage, foot reflexology, Shiatsu (Japanese acupressure), and Polarity (balancing the body's subtle energies).

Please note that massage is not a substitute for medical care. If you have any health concerns at this time, please contact your doctor.
