It is my curiousity and eagerness to learn about the body - its movement and emotions that has led me from my work in fitness, aquatic therapy and wellness to the exploration of massage and bodywork.
I am a graduate of the Body Therapy Institute in Chapel Hill, N.C. - a curriculum that integrates the Hakomi Method based teachings of mind, body, spirit and emotions with Myofascial Bodywork. I have pursued additional training in various therapeutic modalities to support my continued work with special population clients and workplace wellness programs.
My recent studies in Clinical Aromatherapy and Reiki Energy Work have renewed my passion for working in the areas of pain management, immune system health, sleep disorders and emotional stress. I look forward to sharing my new skills with the Columbus, GA community.
"a key to a vital life is an eagerness to learn
and a willingness to change"
Through massage and bodywork I encourage individuals to experience healing, relaxation and improved body awareness and to further their own abilites in self care management.
