I am the first of nine. I am a cancer survivor. I was the ninth documented case the first to survive beyond 26 months. I continue to develop my healing arts’ practice in ever-evolving ways. I use low-table myofascial release techniques, working with structural balance, chronic pain, injury recovery, movement, mindful awareness, improvisation, the mind-body connection and the resonance of our tensegrity structure. I work with athletes, dancers and runners, as well as the medically fragile, oncology patients and survivors of deep trauma.

Instructor in Myofascial Release and Human Sciences 2009 – present

I have been practicing a direct style of MFR (based upon Connective Tissue Massage with John Latz) as my main bodywork modality since I first received training in the technique in 2008. It is above and beyond the most effective modality I have ever encountered or practiced. My professional work focuses on aging populations and chronic postural issues, as well as post-injury/surgery recovery. I work in private practice as well as hospital and hospice settings. I have found great success in using MFR as a primary modality supplemented with deep tissue, trigger point release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and an intuitive approach to psycho-emotional balancing. I am also fortunate enough to teach MFR to beginning massage students as well as in continuing education settings. I find this an incredibly accessible technique to learn which can be taught through careful attention to body mechanics and learning to ‘feel’ fascia through one-on-one instruction. I am delighted to see the local proliferation of MFR practitioners using this technique effectively with diverse populations…

Training/Seminars Taken:
Advanced Myofascial Trainings coursework including whiplash, scoliosis, and headache seminars.

I have over a decade of experience working with people from all walks of life. I have had the honor of working with athletes, people suffering from chronic pain, musicians, and even a man who was catastrophically attacked by a grizzly bear in 2003. I take a strategic and planned approach to help people find relief from pain, and reestablish an active and mobile life again. I have a firm belief that the experience of pain and the therapy to help alleviate that pain is unique to each person. I don’t buy into the one size fits all mentality. I work closely with my clients and take their feedback so we can create a working space together that allows them to feel informed, comfortable, and inspired.
