My training in massage Therapy started in 2002 when I completed the certification course at Pacific School of Massage and Healing Arts, run by Fred and Cheryl Mitouer, in Gualala, CA. This family run school taught me the basic modalities of Swedish, Shiatsu, Accupressure and Energy Healing. The course prepared me to immediately develop a private practice in massage.
After a couple years as a practitioner I continued my education in their advanced coursework in Transformational Bodywork in 2004. These courses were designed to give a better understanding of the human condition, that we are a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual beings and that these are not independently working systems but are interrelated, making us into who we are as a whole. As I completed their advanced program I also acted as Teacher’s Assistant for many of their courses and developed a mentorship and friendship with Fred that continues to this day.
I have also done extensive study in Biodynamic Cranio-Sacral, Eastern Reflexology, Kundalini Yoga, Kinesiology, Qigong, Tai Chi and Kung Fu.
Through these trainings I have amassed over 1000 hours of course work, and now have over 15 years of experience developing and maintaining a bodywork practice. I have created a unique heart-centered approach to facilitate healing. This is done through deep tissue bodywork, muscular and structural manipulation, opening of the breath, discovering and unlocking blockages in the mental, physical and emotional bodies. This creates the space for spontaneous healing to occur, giving relief to chronic and acute conditions that keep one stuck in old patterns of movement, behaviors and ways of being.
