"A "practice" has been defined as "the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method as opposed to theories about such application or use" and anything that you do regularly that nurtures you. I approach my massage as a "practice". It is something I endeavor to do consciously, with hopeful intent to benefit both people involved. Through massage and the act of human touch, we can encourage a progression towards a healthier, more whole state of being from which healing from within can take place."

"Struggling to manage IBS, migraines, arthritis/joint pain, eczema, or fibromyalgia? There is a common thread linking these types of pain and discomfort - inflammation. The work I do pinpoints specific foods your body is negatively reacting to. When these foods react, they cause inflammation. When we remove the causes of inflammation, my clients feel their symptoms significantly decrease - sometimes even disappear. I do this work using the MRT test and LEAP protocol; clients' reactive foods are removed and systematically reintroduced when appropriate. This method allows us to know exactly what to eliminate rather than play a never-ending guessing game."
