Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!
Here's a little about me, why I love what I do, and why I would love to work with you.
Why Traditional Thai Massage & Reiki
I have been in the healing arts for over 20 years.
While in Thailand to study Thai Massage my teacher looked at me and without touching me, pointed at my body and proceeded to tell me every place my body either had pain or had an energetic block causing an emotional imbalance and physical dysfunction. This was the first time my energy and my emotions had been talked about in a bodywork setting. While studying with him he emphasized listening to the body under my hands, rather than focusing on what I thought I should do next. My mind was blown, my Thai Master changed my entire approach to bodywork.
Emotions and energetic imbalances can lead to the manifestation of physical pain, as well as impacting our mental wellbeing and the ways in which we navigate our day. Because of this, my massage sessions are centered around a relaxation style of bodywork, with the nervous system at the forefront of my approach. This also explains my passion for reiki energy balancing as energetic sustainability isn't something we often consider outside of the physical sense.
I don't believe that healing occurs in on specific area, as the experience of the body isn't to be approached as parts and pieces. I believe that healing is a mind-body-spirit balance. I encourage my clients to be active participants in their session. Often life becomes overwhelming and we can detach from ourselves, I encourage everyone to learn how to tune into your body-mind-spirit and take the steps outside of the office to give yourself what you need. Learning how to tune into our needs, and utilize the tools is empowering.
Sustainability, authenticity, self-awareness and confidence are the words that motivate me and my work. My passion lies in walking the path alongside my clients on their individual healing journey, utilizing my certifications in:
