OTR-L, CST, LLCC

A Touch Above was founded by Colleen Pascoe over 10 years ago with the intention of assisting her clients on their journey toward optimum health and wellness. As a passionate bodyworker, she understands that healing must include all aspects of body, mind and spirit. She offers various therapies to assist individuals of all ages to clear, process and balance on all levels in a safe environment.

Colleen began exploring her interest in holistic healing in 1998 by studying CranioSacral Therapy (CST), and thereafter Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT). Her passions grew at the amazing healing she saw witnessed with her clients, and she became certified in CranioSacral Therapy Techniques as well as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist.

Throughout her journey, Colleen has realized how important the balance and connection between body, mind and spirit is to the well-being of her clients. She furthered her experiences with the amazing teachings of Myofascial Release, Brain Curriculum, Meridian Balancing, and Access Bars. Fulfilling her healing aspirations, she became a Certified Light Body Practitioner.

Today, Colleen works energetically and is uniquely tuned to assist others in clearing energetic blocks on all levels. She believes we can all shift and move forward given the right tools, facilitation and loving support. By working with clients of all ages, including children and infants, she is able to spread the scope of her healing to as many as possible.  She has also expanded her practice to include additional modalities such as the Far Infrared Sauna and the Aqua Chi Ionic Footbath to assist in detoxification needs and integrate with her specialized bodywork.
