As a former computer-jockey, I have personal experience in the agonies resulting from sitting hunched over a keyboard for long hours, and battling the stress of meeting project deadlines.


I have made a specialty over the last several years in helping people find solutions to soft tissue pain problems. I love having the opportunity to continue to utilize the skills in debugging I built up during the years when I was writing code.

At the same time, I have also had a lifelong interest and study of the mind-body-spirit practices of many cultures (such as Yoga and Taiji), and am a big believer in the impact on well-being provided by nurturing relaxation practices (such as a "simple" relaxation-oriented massage that is not trying to address a pain problem).
