Having experieced tremendous benefit from bodywork I myself am pleased to be able to offer such a powerful healing tool. I too was skeptical of the power of manual therapy, but having received treatment I then became an advocate. I then trained in what I believe to be the most powerful massage styles, mainly Tuina, Thai, Shiatsu, Craniosacral, and others. I have equipped myself with an array of treatment tools for all types of pains and discomforts, as well as stress related relaxation based techniques that treat the muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and even more importantly the energetic component of the body's/ meridians and energetic pathways. I enjoy helping people reach a better level of functional ability to be able to move through life with relative ease, and no pain. What makes me different is the approach is to the deepest part of the body, which is what gives the body the ability to be a form. Having graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine I was given vast training in perspectives not known to many Westerners, but have been practiced for thousands of years by others in the world.

Chronic pain conditions of muscoloskeletal origin are my focus, and through asian bodywork integrated with western modalities there is a chance for transformation for those in pain
