I began my career over 35 years ago with an art degree (BFA) coupled with an interest in art, holistic and movement therapy. I continued my education through studying Eastern Medicine, Yoga, Meditation, QIgong, and the body/mind practices of Asian Bodywork Therapy and Energy Psychology.
My treatments address all aspects of health. The goal is to look at the bigger picture and seek out the root cause of an imbalance, which may be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual in nature. It is my experience that the power of touch, creativity and movement is profoundly healing. It has the capacity to access ones heart, soul, inner truth, unique expression and creativity, which is a vehicle to living a healthy, joyful and fulfilling life.
My style is a fusion of Eastern & Energy Medicine combined with heart centered bodywork and therapeutic dialoging/coaching. It has been described as a meditation in motion, a dance of energy and vibration, a balancing of the body and the mind and a vehicle to create awareness and a new realm of possibility.
My coaching style is a listening ear, a sharing of concepts, and the ability to gently guide by asking the right questions so you can find the answers from within. The bodywork I do is multi-faceted with technique, cadence and flow determined by your personal body type, level of flexibility, state of health, layers of tension and type of imbalance. I do not work “on” you to manipulate or fix anything. I am working “with” you to awaken the inner physician and body wisdom. This leads towards global healing and empowers you to be responsible for your own health as well. The holistic approach includes looking at long range goals and solutions. Wellness is a process of balancing the ever changing state of reality as life shifts. Developing inner awareness and educating yourself around healing naturally is a clearing for empowerment in life.
I use my knowledge and intuitive ability to work out an individual treatment approach and plan. My clientele varies greatly from the healthy person who is interested in prevention and relaxation, to those seeking spiritual development and life purpose. I work with individuals with terminal illnesses seeking pain relief and inner peace in transition. I am experienced with all types of dis-ease from structural problems, physical illness, injury, chemotherapy detox and cancer support, fibromyalgia, emotional issues, PTSD, bipolar, ADHD and depression. Techniques are chosen based on my assessment of an individual situation. There may also be suggestions for life style modifications. Your life is defined by the choices you make. May your choices bring you health, happiness, healing and harmony.
