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 which 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 pain.
As 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.
I am Valentina Boonstra at your service!!
