After I graduated High School, I was not certain what path to follow in my life. I had always been sincerely interested in people and what makes them tick, so it seemed destined that I would follow a path that would lead me to work with people, but what did that mean?
I am by nature intuitive and connected to the body and spirit. It is not something I acquired, it is a gift that I was born with. I am curious by nature and I am always learning and investigating the effects of herbs and medicines on the human body and spirit. In my quest to help people live life with less pain and more fulfillment, I built a Massage Therapy practice, long before it became mainstream.
Along the way, I also learned that preventing injury is nearly as important as helping to heal injuries. I have worked with top athletes, physical therapists, chiropractors, and health practitioners of all forms in order to build a well-rounded scope and knowledge.
I realized by the time I saw many of my clients, they were already in pain. I needed to find a way to help them keep their bodies strong, and their minds clear. I learned Pilates for core strength, and Tai Chi, for mind and body health. I studied different supplements and tried herbs to help soothe the pain.
Like the clients I have worked with for so many years have begun to age, I have expanded the scope of my business to include helping them continue to have the best quality of life possible. I still work with them using massage, Pilates, and Tai Chi, but I also recognize there are things that bodies can no longer do as well as they once did, no matter how well we take care of them, so I help them do those things. My career continues to evolve and grow, as do I.
I am a thread in the tapestry of my community that has supported me thru thick and thin while dancing in the serendipitous path of love on this crazy road of the Happy Healer.
