Your body is your home. It is the vessel you use to interact with life. The way your body moves, or doesn't, is it's unspoken language. A picture paints 1,000 words while a posture informs a lifestyle. We can hear what the body is communicating to us when we slow down and listen. Listen not with your ears, but with your senses, how you feel. Your body understood a language beyond words before you were born; your sense of Touch was the first sense to develop inside your mother's womb. Massage allows us to connect with our body using it's most primitive and innate method.
I attended the University of Florida and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology. I began my own study of the human body as an exercise specialist, helping people prevent and rehabilitate and manage the symptoms from injuries, surgeries, illnesses and problematic postures. I enjoyed that and desired to continue seeking information about the body and how to contribute a more direct influence. I then attended The Florida School of Massage and graduated in 2015. After graduating, I immediately began practicing massage therapy in a physical therapy office with PT patients and those seeking massage-only treatments. I have worked with people from all types of backgrounds and whose demands imposed on their bodies vary greatly including: office workers, athletes, researchers, artists, runners, dancers, nurses, doctors, pregnant women, seniors, and college students.
While it brings me delight interacting with a broad range of people, my particular area of interest is in working with pregnant clients. I obtained the 32-hour MotherTouch™ Prenatal Bodywork Training & Certification with instructor Leslie Stager. By working with expecting mothers I am able to make a greater impact on the community at large; I can reach two people in one session! When a mother feels more comfortable in her body throughout her pregnancy, she sends the message to her baby that all is well on the outside of the womb.
