Practice Philosophy   

 

Education, practice and personal experience have taught me that gentle, therapeutic touch and sound therapy can be highly restorative for the nervous system and, paradoxically, quite powerful 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.  

 

Much of my philosophical approach 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 so many wonderful mentors on this path and am so very grateful for all of them. I have come to believe that the organizing principle within each of us must also be honored as primary teacher. In cultivating presence and the capacity to listen to the stories our bodies want to tell, we can begin to access a more integrated, coherent version of ourselves and in doing so, life begins to take on new meaning and richness we may have never dreamed possible.
