What if you could nurture yourself through the difficulties that come your way?
Whether it’s grief and loss, major transition, or exhaustion from overwork, our culture tells us to just muscle through. Or sometimes situations are so overwhelming that we avoid them altogether. It may sound counterintuitive, but taking time to be with yourself at such moments supports positive coping. Many people don’t realize the value of tuning in to themselves, rather than pressing forward or shutting down.
Losing my mom as a child impacted me in ways I did not fully grasp until awakening to grief in young adulthood set me on a path of self-discovery. Over decades, I learned to explore questions to reflect on my experiences, listen to my body’s signals about how I’m feeling, and offer myself compassion. This journey led me to become a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner and to write The Art of Reassembly: A Memoir of Early Mother Loss and Aftergrief.
Now I help people connect to themselves as a resource for clarity and calm.
One-on-one energy therapy sessions — Healing Touch uses gentle techniques drawn from many traditions around the world, with hands placed lightly on the body or just above, to create deep relaxation. I came to energy work unexpectedly and was quickly captivated by the inner clarity and calm that I experienced for myself and witnessed in others. I offer one-hour individual sessions at my office in Cincinnati and virtually. Learn more here.
Workshops — Gathering with others who share similar challenges or concerns creates a magic that far exceeds what we can discover on our own. I love to bring people together to explore life experiences using the approaches that have been transformative for me: energy techniques, body practices, journaling, and ritual. I offer holistic 60- or 90-minute programs around topics related to grief & loss, major transition, and self-care. Learn more here.
The Art of Reassembly, my memoir of early mother loss and lifelong grieving, explores how the past always informs the present, the healing potential of self-compassion, and the importance of remembering those we have lost.
I love talking with readers! If you’d like me to attend your book group, please use the contact form to get in touch. I am also available to speak on topics related to childhood grief and its ripple effects through adult life as well as writing, creative expression & ritual gestures as grieving practices.
Peg’s writing featured in:
I am a firm believer of Healing Touch!! A couple of weeks ago I experienced some distorted vision issues along with a bad headache while I was working at our food pantry, and it was enough to make me sit down and rest. Peg Conway was doing Healing Touch for our clients and offered it to me, and of course I said yes. I have experienced Healing Touch before and it always helped. I wasn’t sure how it would help my blurred vision and headache… but it did!!
Healing touch has given me a sense of the possible. Peg is such a gifted practitioner. When I leave each session I have a renewed feeling of peaceful but determined wellness.
I recently had a Healing Touch session with Peg Conway. Through the use of her hands, mostly a few inches above my body, stimulated energy fields and focused on the area of a recent surgery. The calming effects have been helpful in rebalancing my mental, spiritual and physical recovery.
Peg has always gone the extra mile for me. When I was diagnosed with Ménière’s Disease, she researched it so as to be able to meet my specific needs. She listens intently, and for the time you are there, she is focussed on you and you alone. I leave my sessions feeling healthier, happier, and peaceful.
