“...I approach each body, each soul with reverence...”
My approach to bodywork is based on the premise that humans are divinely intelligent organisms, persistently seeking balance and peace; even our compensatory, and sometimes painful, patterns show the innate wisdom of the body in maintaining health in the face of adverse conditions. Therefore, I approach each body, each soul with reverence, asking for guidance and employing my own intuition and palpatory skills to craft the right session from moment to moment. Two crucial components of each session are safety and negotiation between patient and practitioner; while the impetus for healing is always present, the capacity to do so is unleashed only under the right circumstances. In order to foster a productive therapeutic relationship, I empower patients to share their experiences and provide feedback, encourage compassionate body awareness and develop trust through safe, non-judgmental engagement.
I received a dynamic education through the Massage Practitioner Program at Whatcom Community College. There I trained in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Techniques, Myofascial Release and much more, all founded in a deep appreciation and wonderment for Human anatomy and physiology. I have since pursued a plethora of continuing education opportunities, equipping me with a diverse array of techniques to meet client's unique needs including Intraoral Therapy. I am committed to a dynamic and evolving practice for the more I learn about the body and its systems, the more passion and information I have to share with clients who face the weight of pain, dysfunction and trauma.
My latest educational journey has been with the art of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, a subtle yet profound approach to the body and its relationship to healing potentials, internal and external. This practice focuses on the inherent movements in the body or rather the embryological forces that organized us. They are still at work today helping to reorganize and heal us in the face of repetitive stress, injury, emotional trauma and whatever else inhibits grace in our lives. This reorganization offers clarity to weighty chronic ailments, releases trapped vitality and allows for emotional integration when the body and mind are freed from the conditions of past experiences. On a spiritual level, this modality allows us to connect with our authenticity by witnessing who we are beneath the patterns we have adopted. In this way, client and practitioner forge a container through which holistic healing may take place.
It brings me great joy to offer these gifts to my community. Whether you come to my table in pain or simply in curiosity, I look forward to our creative exchange.
