Massage Therapist, Yoga Instructor, Health Coach
Philosophy and Approach:I am a massage therapist, yoga teacher, and health coach with over a decade of experience in the health and wellness industry. I have a passion for helping others achieve greater health, balance, and ease in their lives utilizing many tools, including lymphatic drainage therapy, yoga, meditation, breathwork, and nutritional guidance. The principles on which I have developed my practice, and my own values, are very much in alignment with those of naturopathic medicine. I believe in the healing power of food, movement, nature, relaxation, our own bodies, and a happy heart.
Education and Training:
In addition to a degree in Psychology and licensure with the Oregon Board of Massage Therapy, I hold advanced certifications in both Hatha and Kundalini Yoga, Clinical Nutrition, and personal training. As I began work as a massage therapist, I was immediately drawn to the light touch technique of lymphatic drainage. I soon studied the Vodder method of lymph drainage therapy with Klose Training and Consulting, and continued my training at The Center for Lymphatic Health, with the wonderful Allen Mills. I love utilizing the technology of the Lymphstar Pro Fusion to greatly enhance the already powerful work that is lymph drainage therapy. Additionally, I love to teach my clients (and anyone I meet!) how to harness the power of their breath to improve their lymph and immune functioning, and promote healing in the body.
Most importantly, I am deeply honored to be able to hold space for my clients and empower them to relax, let go, and transform, inside and out.
