During my massage therapy training at Oregon School of Massage we were encouraged to cultivate an understanding of the body/mind/spirit connection and apply this understanding to our bodywork. I accepted this challenge and pursued it with vigor. I have come away inspired and driven to engage clients to participate in the massage/healing process, whether it be to relieve stress, facilitate tissue healing, or maximize the body's potential. We will explore together to find the path that is right for you.
I utilize Swedish and deep tissue techniques along with stretching, movement, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, manual lymphatic drainage, some Thai and Shiatsu techniques to come up with a bodywork session aimed at each individual's needs for their body.
I will share some mindfulness coaching, guided meditation, and breath-work to reconnect, or strengthen, the mind/body connection. With this connection, we can better 'relate' to our body in a positive way. This is especially important for those dealing with chronic pain, stress and anxiety, or in an active healing process.
I will also encourage you to pursue your joy, your spirit, if you will. To have ease and comfort in your mind and body allows your spirit to roam freely.
Let's see where this path takes us... hide
