Andrea McKinley, CLC
Andrea McKinley is a human with a desire to live wholeheartedly, to celebrate life in all its brilliant peaks and dark valleys... to create, connect, break through the myths of inadequacy, serve and expand aliveness- to be even more herself.
She is dedicated to women and men having great lives through being excellent to themselves and each other. Her devotion to feeding freedom and light, health and wellness and full embodied expression, improving birthing & dying practices, honoring life transitions, and bringing healthy rituals and practical relational tools into our modern lives has found a home at Restoring Balance. In bodywork and birthwork, she creates sacred space and utilizes simple healing modalities + practices that are nourishing to the soul; calling you forth into what is really real for you. Her clients leave feeling more grounded and enlivened, awakening to stillness at the center of their hearts... inspired by their own wholeness, expanding resonance, deep gratitude.
Integrative reflexology and herbal steams have brought about profound personal healing and illumination in her body, mind, and heart. It brings her joy to share these amazing restorative practices with everyone she can. Come steam and let her rub your feet, it's heavenly! Her vibrant professional doula practice and over 12 years experience supporting families of all stripes in all birth settings keeps her working knowledge current and her approach fresh. (Sassy sometimes, just for fun. All for love.)
Andrea's life radiates out from her home with 2 incredible, back-talking, ever-eating, teenaged boys and her taiji pup; lifelong soul friends and loving, patient teachers. A passion for growing community and walking the beauty way keeps her within reach. She loves simple pleasures-- morning coffee + Led Zeppelin, playing with clay, walks in the woods with her boys, moondancing with friends and fire.
In between births, you can find her in a little peaceful oasis at Restoring Balance, bringing tired feet to life, sipping tea, cooking up nourishing holistic care and creating dynamic classes for you!
