I started out learning how the body healed before becoming a massage therapist. First while
working with Dr. Jerry Tennant on the concept that less is more for the body, then moving on to
massage school to continue helping and learning about the deep healing cycles of the body.
My approach to massage is first for my clients to understand that I work with them to bring out the “guarding” of the body which sometimes “fights” against the work being done — then calming that reflex to relax the body in order to be fully open to receiving therapy. This addresses not only the issue at hand, but allows the underlying issues that may remain unseen to surface.
I have moved to deeper therapies working on all the levels of the human: body, mind, energy, emotional, and spiritual levels. Through MFR (Myofascial Release) and BCST (Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy), I have been truly honored to witness the healing of many who are finally able to release uncontrolled and unacknowledged shock and trauma .
I am honored to bring these skills so the Soma Massage Therapy team.
