I am fascinated by the body and how it is inextricably connected to our thoughts and our emotions. I have been on a life-long journey to understand this connection and help myself and others live in the body with as much ease as possible. I have completed over 1200 hours of training with the San Francisco School of Massage, Upledger Institute, Hakomi Institute of California, and the California Institute of Integral Studies, and I continue to participate in specialized training, always striving to take my skills to the next level to serve my clients as best I can.
Combined with my formal training, I also bring a vast amount of experience in learning how to optimally utilize my own body through over 25 years of doing and teaching gymnastics, as well as years of training and practice in rock climbing, springboard diving, trail running, acrobatic hand balancing, and freeflying (an aerobatic discipline of sport skydiving). In facing and overcoming a wide variety of injuries in these sports, I’ve gained a vast repository of knowledge about how the body recovers and heals from specific injuries, and what can often impede this process from happening as quickly as we’d like.
