In 1999,  I changed careers from international sky goddess (flight attendant) to opening my own business, Body Shoppe Therapies.  I have always had a passion for fitness and Pilates in particular.  Opening a Pilates studio was a dream.  After instructing for a number of years, I realized that if a client had injuries and consequential inhibitions, something more was needed to transition the body into good movement patterning.  After attending massage school and many continuing education classes, I developed a manual therapy methodology called The LIFT Method.  LIFT is an acronym for Ligament Influenced Fascial Technique.  The ligaments have a direct influence on the fascial system and how the body interprets movement patterning.  The LIFT portion of my business has grown to the point, that I instruct other manual therapy practitioners in how to use LIFT within their practices.
