I have a great respect for the healing profession and believe a well-rounded approach is highly effective. To this end, I have trained in a wide variety of techniques over the years and am flexible in my approach to health and healing, tailoring our sessions to best suit your needs.
I began with energy healing in 1999 in Glastonbury, England at the world-renowned Isle of Avalon Foundation. I received my Esoteric Soul Healing certificate after completing the 1 year program with Kathy Jones in 2005. I next took the 3 year Integrative Energy Healing program from Langara College in Vancouver BC, run by Ruth Lamb RN, one of the first holistic nurses in Vancouver, and became certified as an IEH practitioner in 2008. Needing to deepen my practice even more I then took the 3,000 hour registered massage therapy program at North America’s #1 school for massage therapy, the prestigious West Coast College of Massage Therapy and graduated with honours in 2010.
Two years later I was offered a job teaching in the practical department at WCCMT, overseeing the students applying their practical skills to real-life patients in need of medical massage, where I now work in addition to my full-time massage therapy practice. I have completed several continuing education courses and am certified in Manual Lymph Drainage, Osteopathic techniques and Ligamentous Articular Strain Techniques (L.A.S.T.).
I try to practice what I preach and to that end I live a very healthy, active lifestyle. I am a Crossfit athlete and competitor so I know the rigours of intense workouts, I trail run, am a yogi and regular meditator, I eat healthy food, get plenty of sleep and generally live a balanced life. I am also an artist and very spiritual. I try to bring that vibe to my work so what I do it is more an extension of myself rather than a job to go to.
My practice is continually evolving as I grow both as a person and a therapist, where I employ a very orthopaedic, technical approach to massage therapy as well as an intuitive blend of both energy and massage for clients who request it. I will love to work with you to rehabilitate an injury, reduce chronic pain, improve your health and wellness and help promote an optimal state in your body.
