As an integral counselor and bodywork practitioner, I do my best to treat the whole person, not just symptoms. My hope is that by being present and authentic with a client, choosing to care for them, and unconditionally love them, that they will be relieved of some suffering and their inner light be polished by our time together.
Bodywork sessions include gentle, supportive and nurturing hands-on manual techniques that facilitate energy flow and the body's natural healing process. Tui Na / Qi Gong Massage is an active style of massage that disperses stagnation and opens the joints. Receiving a Yin Tui Na session specifically nourishes the blood, nourishes the yin, and calms the spirit. This means addressing physical pain, internal issues and conditions, and the spirit. As a result, blood circulates freely and every place in the body can benefit from its warming and nourishing function. In this way, the whole body opens, and every part of the body landscape can feel light and at peace.
I have been studying at the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, CA since 2008, when I began practicing qi gong. My training at the Acupressure Institute included 300 hours of classes focused on Tui Na, Emotional Balancing, Body Psychology, neuromuscular techniques and Yin applications of the work. Before that, I completed 150 hours in the energetic art of Reiki, including Reiki I, II, Reiki Master Training and Karuna Ki level. I also have certifications in mindfulness and mindfulness education from Mindful School and the Mindfulness Education Insitute. My studies have included workshops in other healing modalities around CA, at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, and have focused on educating children and adults in these practices.
