Regular bodywork has positively affected all aspects of my life, including areas that I hadn’t anticipated. I look forward to assisting others through their healing journey by connecting to their bodies and finding relief from stress and pain.
What keeps you engaged in your profession?
The fact that everybody and every body is different. What may work for one client’s concerns may not work for another with similar concerns. I enjoy the systematic but flexible problem-solving that is needed for positive results. I also enjoy guiding clients to ways that can help them be active participants on their road to feeling better.
What kind of clients do you like working with most?
I enjoy working with individuals that are looking to reconnect with their bodies in a positive way. This may be due to prior abuse or addiction or just the rigors of modern life. I also enjoy working with seniors. For me, the body-mind-spirit connection is a foundational necessity in healing at any age.
What are you currently working on in your professional life?
My next major goal is to achieve National Certification as a bodyworker through the NCBTMB. I’m also interested in deepening my knowledge of Aromatherapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong and Yoga.
What is your favorite breakfast item/vegetable/meal?
Scrambled eggs with veggies. When feeling sassy, I add salsa and eat with corn chips. It’s a good way to get protein and a serving of vegetables right away in the morning.
What is your favorite beverage?
How do you spend your free time?
I’ve enjoyed making art for many years. I mostly paint, although I also enjoy drawing and making dioramas/mixed media pieces. My favorite painting subject is a life-sized plastic skeleton that I acquired years ago. I also like to camp, take long walks with my dog and read.
How do you celebrate living in your body?
Practicing yoga and meditation has been a great way for me to celebrate each day. By practicing, I have become much more aware of what my body is craving each day. It has helped me move towards balance in my life, as well as, find contentment during imbalance. By becoming more connected to my body in this way, I have been able to learn about my personal cycles in relation to the cycles of nature. This includes eating seasonally, embracing energy and sleep level changes throughout the year, etc.
