After a lifetime career in the health & fitness industry, I saw the need for deep, effective hands on treatments that bridged the gap between massage, physical therapy and chiropractic care. Although my work is grounded in anatomical, kinesthetic and musculoskeletal principles, my approach includes being sensitive to my clients physical and emotional life’s experiences and how the body translates those experiences.
