David Rosenberg

My name is David Rosenberg, I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and I practice Awareness Massage. My style was developed alongside the study of Tai Chi, beginning in 2010, through Eric Randolph at The Tao Applied in Oakland. I honed my technique with achieving a massage license in 2013 from the HR School for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork near Philadelphia. Since then, I have worked with many people to create the dynamic framework upon which my craft is based:

Massage is a conversation between the participant and facilitator; how the recipient receives a massage directly affects the outcome produced! My hope is to help promote observation-based body awareness and the development of a soft movement practice to support all avenues of functioning best. Don’t forget to breathe with ease!

Jason Price

Cuddle Brain

Jason is trained with Certified Cuddlers and offers, completely platonic, fully clothed cuddle sessions. Each session is customized to the comfort of the client and their needs. This is your time to receive the love and attention that you deserve. You may hold hands, chat sitting close, hug, read, lie and cuddle big spoon/little spoon style, or try some of the many poses available. The goal is to help us in those moments in life where we either need more touch or simply don’t want to take anything from the amazing people in our worlds to get what we need. We want you to know that you matter and you are loved without the guilt, shame, and judgement our culture can sometimes bring us when we try to reach out physically. This is in no way sexual, but is intended to give you the feeling that you are not alone, and that the world is a good place.

Ace of Earth, LLC
Jennifer Carroll


Jennifer Carroll is master in Kundalini and Usui Reiki channelling the energy of Mother Nature in chakra healing and balancing and in providing intuitive guidance as a part of the session.  Through her relationship with Gaia, she grounds and aligns chakra energies and uses her empathic gifts to feel, guide and teach others ways to heal themselves emotionally and physically from various forms of trauma, or deep seeded patterns from childhood programming and even past lives. She also works with balancing and interdependency of polar opposite energies that are commonly found in nature (birth/death, air/earth) and especially in the dynamics of the divine male and divine female energies that are within us all.

Liz Rollert
Moon Goddess Essentials


I began my spiritual journey at a time in my life where I could no longer deny the call to realize my inner truth. I knew that there was more about this mind, body, and soul I was living in. I was eager to experience how the depths of myself could be discovered. While doing this deep internal work for myself, I found that I was able to help others too. I’ve had so many teachers guide me along the way.
I know it is a part of my divine truth to continue to give that energy back to others in the form of chakra healing and life coaching.

I live to help people be the best versions of themselves. It is a natural part of the human experience to find ourselves feeling blocked from living within our true purpose. I work to harmonize energetic discord within. My purpose is to help you enhance your life.
By using sound, divination tools, and help from the spiritual realm I can aid in the balancing of the chakras.

Preanka Nanda
Sound Healing

Preanka feels that a healer is not someone that you go to for cure, a healer is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to heal yourself.

Her journey from the known to the unknown started 11 years back, in India, when she got initiated into the path of yoga and meditation by her guru, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. Subsequently, she started exploring alternative therapies and ways of holistic living. This exploration, and her tryst with destiny, led her to discover the magic of singing bowls. She was naturally drawn to the vibrations and considers herself fortunate to get certified with the International academy of sound healing in India. After moving to the US, she completed her training with master Don Conreaux and has been sharing the magic of the sacred bowls since 2015, in both India and USA.

Besides sound healing, Preanka can be found doing many many many things such as traveling, collecting crystals, reading, hiking, biking, volunteering, exploring raw/natural food recipes in her kitchen.
