My approach to healing work and massage is to empower your body’s innate wisdom to transform your current aches and pains into relief and flow with life. You get only one precious body in this lifetime, so taking good care of yourself is a must.
Massage and Bodywork is so much more than just a manipulation of muscle tissue. Healing touch effects the nervous system, immune system, subtle energy body, and mind. For those who are seeking a life of empowered health and vitality, regular bodywork is key. Massage greatly reduces pain, increases energy flow, and connects you with your natural state of being: BLISS!
I have been a professional massage therapist, and massage therapy instructor since 2003. I am also a certified yoga teacher and holistic wellness coach.
