License Massage Therapist
Certified Health Coach and Nutritional Therapist
Certified Personal Trainer
Qigong & Meditation Coach
I have been working as a Massage Therapist since 2010, with certifications in Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular, and Swedish therapies.
The work has been most rewarding, and life changing. Assisting others with their transformation to that of better well-being, ignites a spark in most Massage Therapists, that makes us really love our jobs. It fuels us to continuously learn and expand our craft. We strive to provide our clients with a truly holistic approach to Health and Wellness. It becomes a passion.
The first 5 yrs of my practice consisted mostly of working in a clinical setting with Chiropractors and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. Therefore I specializes in Medical Massage with a concentration on Myofascial Release. I also work with athletes of various levels, providing customized maintenance, and performance enhancement massage and training services. Along with my medical experience, I have always maintained Spa work, in order to provide balance to my technique. Deep tissue therapy, delivered in a relaxing manner is my modus operandi. I recently completed training in level 1, Craniosacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute international. Most of my sessions consist of multiple modalities, in the attempt to adhere to my clients’ present wants and needs. Understanding the patterns of Healing, I know the importance of approaching each client as an individual, and connecting with them vibrationally. Therefore, all of their sessions are extremely customized.
This is especially true with my Strength and Conditioning classes. I have developed a program called Foundation Fitness, which is a 3 phase program, beginning with Deep Core Activation. It is a precise sequence of building blocks, rooted in the development of postural integrity and mind-body connection. As a Health Coach and Nutritional Therapist, I help guide clients through the barrage of health information available today, in order to making safe and healthy choices.
I have been practicing Qigong and Meditation for over two decades. It has provided me with enormous, personal health benefits, and adds immense value to my massage therapy work. I am very pleased to be offering private, and group instructions in this profoundly healing art. My training comes from authentic Chinese lineage dating back twenty-seven generations. The forms I pass on have been specifically designed to develop balance and coordination, and present the basics for an on-going, qigong and meditation practice.
My offering is assistance with creating a lifestyle of Well-Being.
