journey from art to healing arts
In the 1980’s, I attended Art School in New York City. I love the arts, and at the same time, I have always been drawn to studying massage therapy.
In 2002, I went to massage school at the National Holistic Institute. After completing the school's required 720 hours of training, I was jazzed and ready to use my new skills, but I also felt that I had just barely touched the basics. Over the years, with hands on experience, I learned how to feel the ways in which the body communicates, holding patterns, restrictions, emotions, and trauma, all palpable through the refinement of attuning to the body.
In addition to traditional massage training, I have trained in Craniosacral Therapy with Upledger as well as Body Intelligence, Biodynamic Craniosacral and also Visceral Manipulation with the Jean Pierre Barrel Institute.
My style is informed by these schools, but also very much my own.
