As a practicing therapist for the past 20 years my present style of bodywork incorporates varied skills and experience garnered over this period of time.

My trainings include the following:

Fascial Counterstrain (Jones Inst.) ​ CraniosacralTherapy (Milne Inst.),
Buteyko Breathing (Patrick McKeown) YogaTeacher Training (Ana Forrest)
Continuum Movement (Emile Conrad) Golf Range of Motion Analysis (TPI Institute.)
Polarity therapy (Gary Strauss),​ Thai Massage (Saul Ray)
Foot reflexology, Indian head massage and PanchaKarma Treatments.

My desire is to provide hands on bodywork, educational options about the body, and an overall resource for my clients and community at large.
