I highly recommend Soteria Wellness. Dawn is genuine, compassionate and has a mastery of the modalities she incorporates into her healing space. I noticed a definite shift and felt lighter after just one session. Dawn’s research, training and expertise has allowed her to bring world class therapies and modalities under one roof where people can experience health and renewal.

CranioSacral Therapy 

Dawn CranioSacral Therapy CST Soteria Wellness

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle therapeutic method of assessing and balancing the body's craniosacral system: the system is composed of the membranes and fluids which surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

The craniosacral and nervous systems are connected to the rest of the body through connective tissue called fascia.  These connections allow CranioSacral Therapy to effect distant areas and organ systems of the body, especially impacting the nervous, musculoskeletal, endocrine, and vascular systems.  

Because such a light touch is used, CST is appropriate for all ages, from infants to elders, and for most conditions.

MediCupping™ Therapy


MediCupping™ vacuum therapy is a pleasant, non-invasive lifting and separating approach to bodywork that achieves powerful results through manual, machine-assisted, and/or magnetic cups. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles and fascial restrictions, encourage blood and lymph flow, and sedate the nervous system encouraging a deeply relaxed state.

Touch for Health

Touch for Health Service Soteria Wellness Appleton

Touch for Health Kinesiology is a safe and practical alternative therapy designed to balance the body's electrical energy system using muscle responses to the application of gentle pressure. By lightly testing/monitoring specific muscles for their response to gentle pressure, we will identify muscular and energetic imbalances and stress patterns that are occurring. Balance is restored by gently stimulating specific reflex points on the body that correspond with the impaired area.

I find that each session brings more layers of healing to surface. I feel balanced on all levels—emotional, spiritual, physical—after each session. I leave feeling energized with a smile from my heart space and a renewed spirit...

EFT Soteria Wellness Emotional Freedom Techniques

Emotional Freedom Techniques


Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or EFT TAPPING utilizes gentle tapping on specific acupressure points to clear energetic blockages which has the potential to promote stress reduction, pain relief, emotional healing, renewed clarity, and transformation on every level.

After only two EFT sessions with Dawn, my 55-year long history of anxiousness, triggers, and trauma about dental work dissolved by the end of the second session. What, in the past would have provoked a severe reaction even with lots of relaxation and self-talk just to make it into the dental chair, became a non-issue. My dentist was so amazed at the difference, he stopped twice during my appointment to acknowledge how well it seemed I was doing. Instead of leaving the appointment experiencing the backlash of anxiousness and tension generated by the appointment, I walked out giggling inside celebrating my huge victory!

Wellness Consultation


Not sure where to begin?

You’re not alone.

Sometimes clients aren’t sure where to begin. Sometimes we aren’t sure either! Sometimes we need more time to sit together and explore your situation and our options than the beginning of a massage or bodywork session allows.

This is a great first step!

A wellness consultation helps you customize and prioritize your care plan for the best bodywork, essential oil, adjunctive therapies and self-care options to move you forward on your health journey.


Please begin with a 60- or 90-minute consultation, unless you are very well-versed in essential oil usage and highly motivated to live a healthier lifestyle.
