I’m originally from Missoula and just returned home after two decades on the East Coast first studying and then working professionally as an actor. In the late 90's, years of running took their toll on my knee; I learned that I had developed a muscular imbalance from the very exercise I was using to maintain my personal zen. While physical therapy helped to heal my body, I found the most physical and mental relief from massage. Having gone through the recovery process, I was drawn to explore the healing arts further.
While I was acting full-time professionally in Manhattan and regionally, I started studying Reiki, a powerful Japanese healing technique, so I could work on myself while trying to manage the stress that comes from living out of a suitcase. But I knew that I had to go further: in 2003 I took six months to study massage intensively at the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, New York. My 1,000 hours of training included many massage styles and techniques: Swedish, shiatsu, sports, pre-natal, deep/connective tissue, and NeuroMuscular Therapy (trigger point work).
Since receiving my New York state massage licensure in 2004, I have worked in luxury spas as well as with private clients who have a large range of concerns. I’ve also become a Reiki Master Teacher.
Every body is different; with the right therapies, it is possible to achieve balance and strength. Sometimes it’s necessary to approach an issue from many angles, so I have a network of talented health professionals I refer to including chiropractors, acupuncturists, yoga and meditation instructors, personal trainers, nutritional consultants, counselors, and life coaches.
