For 23 years I have studied the mind/body connection through various paths, which include, psychology, yoga, and Vipassana Meditation. This path lead me to pursue Rosen Method Bodywork and massage. My purpose is to share Transformative Bodywork with others so they may experience a better understanding of themselves and improve their wellbeing.
I provide Transformative Bodywork as a path to greater awareness, easing the body to alleviate pain. Some of the conditions I have worked with are stress, musculoskeletal injuries, headaches, migraines, chronic pain and fatigue, cancer and insomnia. Each treatment is tailored to the individual. No two treatments are the same, similar to how no two people are the same. It’s the journey and process that matter.
