Andrea Holbrook, LMT

Massage – Myofascial Release – Reflexology – Facial Toning – Aromatherapy

Hi, my name is Andrea Holbrook and I’m pleased to have the opportunity to offer my services as a licensed massage therapist here in Columbia with Lucy Drabek. I started my career out in nursing and soon became attracted to the healing powers of massage.

I’ve given massage in both medical and holistic settings and have seen profound changes take place in people who give to themselves in this way. I’ve spent the past years of my life raising a family and working as an educator in the public-school system.

While the work is rewarding, I see such a need for people, especially today, to rejuvenate and give to themselves. Healing massage is a way to help yourself continue to do the good work that you do, commit, and stay in the game.

The healing touch you receive not only touches you but has a ripple effect on those you come in contact with.

Michael Jernegan, Astrologer

Astrological Reading – Astrological Chart

To me, an astrological chart is a map of the heavens at the time and place of your birth. I believe that anyone born at a given moment is reflective of that moment. So in looking at the position of the planets when you were born I see this as the seed for potential that was planted at birth, I see this as the road map of your life journey, and I see this as your original choice upon entering this world, showing what type of experiences you will have in this lifetime. I believe an astrological chart can help us with better knowledge and understanding, gifting us with the ability to make better life choices.

I have been studying astrology for decades and offer people a view of their talents and lessons in life, as well as the karmic path their soul has chosen to follow in this lifetime. I view this work as an inspired session of spiritual life coaching. I give readings that include this information as it relates to your highest potential in career, relationships, health, creative expression, and spiritual growth. I offer a variety of services that include location maps to help you find the best places in the world to manifest your potentials, as well as composite relationship charts that show how you relate with another person in partnership whether that is a family, friendship, romantic, or business connection. I have taught classes and seminars, and been a guest on radio shows to talk about the effects of the planets in the world. My readings also include psychic channeling, with added guidance from the spirit world. I have clients around the world and offer readings in person or via telephone, with voice recordings sent through Email or mailed on a CD. I currently live in Seattle, WA, but also travel to New England (where I was born and raised) to give in person sessions at least twice a year.

My first training was as an art teacher and I have worked in many artistic jobs including production design for motion pictures. I am still a practicing artist; painting vibrantly colorful acrylic canvases, and weaving tapestries. I also write film screenplays, with the unique approach of giving each character a birth date, and therefore an astrological chart which gives me that special insight into creating their particular character.
