First, learn to follow the receiver’s body to determine the treatment strategy for any given session. Second, correctly applied bodywork therapies will help successfully restore health.

My path to becoming a bodyworker and healer first opened in 2002, when I stumbled into the movement aspect of Chinese medicine, Qigong, a wondrous gift that changed everything for me. As I became more aware of and sensitive to what was happening in my body, I became increasingly interested in how the body works, and ultimately, in how and why it sometimes doesn’t.
I graduated from the Arcata School of Massage in 2009, a program informed by the work of Moshe Feldenkrais. While receiving training in somatic therapy, I learned to approach chronic pain structurally, while also taking into account the role of the central nervous system.
