What inspired me to become a wellness professional?

There is so much needless suffering in the world. I love to pursue my curiosity about how to make living in your body a wonderful experience.

How my clients describe their first visit?

Most clients are surprised how effective my treatments are and they say, "I feel so much better but it didn't seem like you did anything. It was so gentle!"

What I say to someone who has never tried

This treatment uses your body's own self healing mechanisms. You will feel much better but I can't tell you exactly how. Your body is directing me to the areas that need healing. It'll be a surprise to me too. What a marvelous adventure.
