I believe in providing therapeutic massage to clients that are in pain or under stress. I give relief to my clients much in the same way massage therapy did for me after my car accident. After breaking my neck, I found that before and after surgery, massage therapy made me human again. This inspired me to study massage and give others the gift of healing that I was given. I also help those clients that just need to relax and forget about their worries for a little while and offer them a place and way to do that. In a session, I work with clients to help them connect deeply with their bodies, their minds, their needs and revitalize and redirect themselves on their path. I have found my true calling.
My massages are curative because they include the energy that emits from my hands. Some people feel this energy as heat, others as vibration, and still others as electricity. A Shaman told me that I have a "healer's touch" and most of my clients confirm this as fact. I have helped people with MS, ALS, Frontal Lobe Seizures, Parkinson's, Epilepsy, Frozen Shoulders, Neuropathy, Upper Cross Syndrome, Piriformis Syndrome, Sciatica, and a host of other ailments.
I use a variety of Western and Eastern Modalities in a creative blend of techniques to make my clients feel better. These include but are not limited to Swedish, Posture Re-Alignment, Reflexology, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Thai Yoga Massage, Cross Fiber Friction, Trans Fiber Friction, and Lymphatic Drainage.
I have reclaimed my life and continue to grow. I was an avid motorcyclist and will be again. I exercise regularly - lift weights (indoors), run, cycle and hike (in the warmer weather). I eat healthy food that nourishes me deeply. I meditate and pray as much as possible and have learned to love life. I believe there is always hope to live in joy instead of pain.
