I believe we can all feel at peace in our bodies and minds if we open up to change and learn to listen to what we really need. Lifestyle changes can be very challenging and I love to share with others how beautiful, simple and calming it can be to let go of our anxieties and worries and bring in a healthy state of mind and body.
I grew up as a competitive gymnast and put a lot of stress and strain on my body, but learned very much what it felt like to be completely present with what I was doing. I also struggled with an eating disorder and spent many years healing my body, mind and spirit. In 2004, I received a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science, became a Certified Yoga teacher, Pilates teacher and Personal Trainer. Later, I went on to become a Licensed Massage Therapist, Thai Yoga Bodyworker, and Ayurvedic Health Counselor. I love movement, healing, health and touch and enjoy combining a variety of knowledge, skills and training with intuition to create individualized experiences and healing sessions.
I have a lot of experience working with people of all ages; whether you sit at a desk all day for work, are an athlete or a mama needing some rejuvenation. I specialize in helping to decrease muscular tension and tightness, stress reduction, increasing flexibility, helping with injury prevention and rehabilitation, sciatica, back and neck pain, IT band syndrome, Tennis Elbow, anxiety, depression, headaches, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances and fatigue. It is a passion of mine to help others to figure out the root cause of their pain, and encourage people to look at habitual patterns that may be creating postural imbalances. At the end of your Massage or Thai Yoga Bodywork session, I love teaching you stretches, exercises and self-care practices to do at home to help increase the benefits of your massage.
Additionally, I love to help people feel better throughout their pregnancy, postnatal period and beyond using massage, thai yoga bodywork and individualized food plans based on Ayurvedic Medicine.
In my free time, I totally love rock climbing, dancing, yoga, swimming in rivers, mountain biking, gardening, my husband, my son, my cat and spending time in nature.
