Service through bodywork is my life’s work and it is my passion to help others move through physical and energetic obstacles, relieve them of chronic pain, clear old beliefs and patterns to help one become more whole and at peace in their life. My mission is to assist others in bringing the mind and body into balance, to increase their life energy force, and to aid in improving the functions of the body and energetic systems. I believe it is our right to be free and to love and enjoy one’s life. I work both technically and intuitively, listening to verbal, physical, and energetic cues. My therapeutic practice is based on individual needs to foster a healthier, more balanced life.”
