Why I do this work?
The heart of my work is rooted in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. My role is a facilitator of the body’s natural and amazing healing abilities by applying Therapeutic-healing modalities. I began my career performing, teaching and studying dance and movement for 25 years. Fascinated with Anatomy and Physiology of movement, I wanted to deepen my knowledge and transitioned into various Massage and Bodywork modalities collecting an array of training such as Deep Tissue, Swedish, Pregnancy Massage, Myofascial release, Sports Massage, Thai Massage, and energy work techniques.
After a few years of working with clients, I found that there was a major profound component to healing the body and that was the Body-Mind connection. As my winding journey spiraled inwards to self and my own journey into self-realization…. opened up a spiritual awakening or fire inside me and existence allowed me to open myself to see the passage in front of me which lead me to Mother India where I spent most of 6 years living up in the foothills of the Himalayas absorbing Vajrayana Buddhism among many other spiritual paths from my Guru and other Yogic Masters.
I immersed myself in Hatha, Ashtanga, and Tantric yogic systems. The blessings of my masters have given me the roadmap to connecting the body-mind-spirit connection in myself. I would like to humbly share what I have learned and offer my experiences, wisdom and healing touch through Bodywork to assist in each individual’s journey. Weaving all my training and life’s experiences together I offer to you a grounded, healing environment to facilitate a space for deep relaxation and connection with self.
