After recovering from a serious car accident that led me into a year of chiropractic and physical therapy - little did I know this event would change my life. I graduated from the National Holistic Institute a few years later in 2002.
Yoga, meditation and massage is what helped me recover - physically, mentally and emotionally stronger than before and continues to be my holy trinity as I navigate through this practice of being human.
I have been a caregiver all my life. From caring for my grandmother with cancer as a young child, to taking care of my mother in my early 20's recovering from heart surgery, then working as a professional caregiver to a quadriplegic client while in college, working in various hospitals, caring for sick friends who have been hospitalized and always returning to massage between it all.
Being a caregiver is the core of who I have always been and I am grateful to be of service to all of those in need.
Specializing in relaxing, deep and effective bodywork utilizing a flowing mixture of swedish, ashiatsu, thai stretching and acupressure meridian work with your preferred amount of pressure. Incorporating seamlessly the use of cupping, gua sha and hot stones as desired.
As a certified yoga teacher, meridian yoga therapist and Zen Buddhist practitioner, I love to share simple meditation and breathing techniques and help educate you with easy at home stretches to ensure proper alignment and posture - resulting in healing and preventing new injuries, both physically and emotionally.
My style of bodywork has been described as a relaxing yet very deep tissue massage with yoga-like stretching with the flow and meditativeness of Qigong.
As a empathetic queer person and trauma survivor, I understand that ALL bodies deserve bodywork and self care. I am trauma informed and have experience and skills in modifying for your unique body, comfort and safety. I will always listen to your needs and respect your limitations, regardless of what body you are in.
I enjoy cooking up new recipes, learning ASL, plein air painting, yin yoga, elaborate picnics, drinking tea in the forest and reading with cats.
