Practical and personal experience has taught me that gentle bodywork, acupuncture and sound therapy can be highly restorative for the nervous system and extremely effective at alleviating a multitude of health concerns, chronic or acute, spiritual, mental, emotional or physical in nature. I am deeply passionate about all forms of gentle, non-invasive medicine and when it comes to working with the body, I feel consistently awed by the change that can arise from doing less and listening more.
My approach to working with the body is inspired by the foundational writings of Osteopathic Doctors, A.T. Still, William Sutherland and Rollin Becker as well as my teachers of Craniosacral Therapy, East Asian Bodywork, Classical Chinese Medicine, Japanese Meridian Therapy and Sound Healing Technique. I have been fortunate to have many wonderful teachers on this path and I am very grateful to them all.
“The more I think I know about the living human body, the more I realize how vast
the mystery is that holds that knowledge together. The longer I observe and listen to the
body, and to the context in which it lives, the more I am in awe of all aspects of life.”
