Why Birch Tree Wellness?

photo of paper birch bark and leavesThe birch tree is rich in medicinal, practical and magical lore. In many earth medicine traditions, the birch tree is symbolic of spring, healing, new beginnings, and cleansing of old to make way for the new. It is often associated with goddess or feminine energy. Despite its outwardly delicate appearance, the birch is considered one of the hardiest of all broadleaf trees.

My love for the beauty of this tree, along with its blend of feminine strength, healing and renewal are what inspired me to adopt the birch tree to represent my business. Massage and energy healing are able to be both gentle and strong, and can help you to shed old stress and pain to make way for renewed wellness and well-being.
