About Sacred Space

Monica Hansen R.N., B.S.N., CMT, RYT200

My healing work with women is born from a place of deep stillness and a desire to help you find peace and balance in body, mind and spirit. As a nurse/massage therapist/yoga therapist I blend a knowledge of the human body from a medical perspective with an intuitive sense of touch and the connection between body and spirit. I specialize and focus on women’s health issues through all stages of life from birth through aging. Healing touch is tremendously helpful and nurturing at all times in a woman’s life, and I feel that this work is what I have been born to do.

I have been sharing the gift of heart-centered massage with clients for over 25 years, and have taught massage classes for the Johnson County Community College program. I also teach yoga classes and offer assisted gentle yoga therapy and private yoga classes (see my yin and yum page).

Sacred Space is more than just the name of my practice – it describes what I create for our time together. I do this with specific intent and with the knowledge that creating a safe, nurturing environment helps your healing on all levels.
