Thai Yoga Massage Therapist, Reiki Master and LMT
Like so many people, I found massage, yoga and reiki in response to a physical health crisis. In 2000, I was diagnosed with a chronic disease found because my kidneys were on the verge of failing. Every system in my body was in the process of shutting down, my muscles tightened up so much it took 6 months before I would walk with my feet flat on the ground. I had to wear heels to walk because my calf muscles were so tight.
It didn’t take long to figure out that conventional doctors had the technology to save my life, but not the answers on how to live well with a chronic disease. My quest for health and wellness led me to reiki, yoga and massage within the first year of my journey; and I used all of them to regain my physical health. Daily yoga asana practice, clean nutrition, consistent exercise, meditation, regular massage and learning reiki energy therapy are the reasons for my vibrant health and wellness today.
And so I practice what I know helped me. When we work together, each session always begins with a ‘check-in’ or consultation time. Based on your needs and goals today, I’ll pull different tools from my toolbox.
It was from a place of profound gratitude for my rebirth as a healthy person that I decided to work with people at a deeper level by becoming a reiki practioner, then a massage therapist, then a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist. It is my experience that yoga, nutrition, customized exercise, energy work and massage offer hope for improved lives; they’ve completely changed mine. It is an honor to work with everyone who is ready for some change or improvement in his/her life.
