"Be Excellent To Each Other." - Bill S. Preston, Esquire

I’ve had a number of professions in life, both corporate and blue collar. I’m happy to say that I believe I have finally landed on one that I can label as my calling. 


When I moved to Minneapolis I had other plans and I was going to MCTC to finish up some generals to enter into the sustainable agriculture program at UofM. I took an herbalism class to break up the stress of math, science and economics and then decided to concentrate on finishing the Herbal Studies program there. When I was close to finishing the program, I was unsure of just where I was going. I’ve always enjoyed using natural medicine and at first I thought I could combine it with agriculture but at some point I had an “ah ha!” moment and decided to go back to school for massage. I figured I could combine herbalism and massage for a well- rounded approach to healing.


I quickly found CenterPoint and signed up for their East/West Shiatsu and Massage A.A.S program and spent the next two years absorbing Chinese medicine theory, Western and Eastern pathology, anatomy, ethics and business and engaging in many hours of extremely formative hands-on time.


I began working at a chiropractic office in South Minneapolis about a third of the way through my program. There I had the pleasure of working on a very diverse range of clients; truckers, teachers, artists, construction workers, dancers, policy makers, wait staff and more than a few fellow bodyworkers. This meant that I got to work on many different types of injuries and I learned a lot about the unique issues that accompany these different professions. 


I am currently working at a spa in Maple Grove and it has also been a formative experience. I guess I can admit that I learned a bit more about how to be more gentle and nurturing. Rather than working mainly on injuries I have worked on many people who just want to relax and zone out and this has improved my “flow.” Still, I have carved out a niche at the spa as one of the few deep tissue MTs. I’ve also been enjoying helping people with recommendations for herbs and supplements to help with various issues such as muscle cramps, anxiety and inflammation.


I also have a small handful of private clients who I have been able to combine topical herbal formulas with bodywork to great and lasting effect, helping them with sprained ankles, knee pain, complications from whiplash, biceps tendonitis and various other issues. I’ve also had the chance to create a protocol to help induce labor for a friend of mine who was a high risk pregnancy.


Now I am here at Everyday Miracles and am pleased to be working in conjunction with the Traditionally Healthy Chiropractic team. I look forward to being able to blend all of my knowledge and experience to tailor sessions toward another unique group of clients and am especially excited to have the opportunity to work with many new and expecting mothers.
