“Arriving at the Embodiment Sanctuary haven in the woods is like stepping through a portal, into a magical time and place. Tented under beautiful trees, surrounded by rolling wooded gardens, their home is a Zen-like sanctuary. Perched above a running river, the sound of water spreads through the land like nature’s symphony. Ley lines of quartz outcroppings amplify the sounds and feel of nature, of space and of being home. Indoors the décor is inspiring and spiritual, a peaceful nest of beauty cradled in the woods. In this space

Mark and Alisa work their magic and alchemy. They are uniquely talented guides for a healing journey. Working creatively and intuitively in tandem, they meet you where you are to provide a transformation, healing experience.

They create the safest of containers, where deep work can be done with dignity and integrity. In this Sanctuary they provide gourmet healthy food that makes the body sing, and sleep here is deeply restful. They are warm charming, and attuned to your needs, each of them brings both talent and technique, coupled with spiritual and enlightened ways of understanding. Working with them is an unparalleled experience.”

Mark and Alisa offer their services to travel to your location, if desired. Alisa together with her husband, Mark Tanny, support your personal healing journey. Integrating holistic body, mind & spirit techniques with embodied consciousness and enlightened ways of understanding. We guide you towards balance, working creatively and intuitively to support your healing journey.

Dr. Mark Tanny, practices a transformational synthesis of bodywork with over 30 years of experience, providing both transformational bodywork and spirit-embodiment coaching. Body Alchemy is a transformative body, mind and spirit journey that Dr. Tanny provides from a highly attuned state of consciousness. It acknowledges that fundamental change can occur, both through a process of reintegration (structural, neuromuscular, myofascial, pranic) and through the release of beliefs and attitudes that maintain suffering, illness and dis-ease.

Individual sessions are several hours long, but are best realized through our personal weekend retreats, or in private sessions.

“With Mark, I felt an incredible sense of trust. It was as if my body it-self announced that it was ready and willing to heal. It was a profound opening and one I had not previously experienced with any body-worker before. Mark approached me with wisdom and a deep felt-sense of a shaman. I leave the Embodiment Sanctuary with a feeling of profound release every time.”

“Mark’s calm, playful and hope filled approach to life, healing and counsel has been unbelievabley helpful to me. I trust him entirely. His interest in people is sincere. His ability to find the core of an issue, be it physical or emotional pain, is quite astounding. It would be difficult to find a better healer or kinder soul. He is truly a gem.”
