The body, like the earth, is designed to heal itself.
I came to study Acupressure and Shiatsu after my own health was remarkably transformed though Oriental Medicine. At the time I worked with adults and children who were experiencing the effects of mental illness, homelessness, developmental disabilities, and trauma. I had many opportunities to see how mental and physical health are intertwined, and how the cycle of illness, trauma and learned helplessness are perpetuated.
As my Asian Bodywork practice grew, I found myself going through my own life transformation, which informed and encouraged me to help others with their development. I find it especially rewarding offering support to people who are undertaking significant life challenges and transformations. I believe that when you bring the right people into your life, you create a dynamic and interdependent team, and good things happen.
