Feel better today.
I've always been interested in personal and spiritual growth and healing even from a young age. After my first deep experience with meditation, I immediately wanted to share that with other people. Whenever I saw someone suffering I wanted to help. At 13, I began taking yoga with Shanti Desai and practiced daily as instructed. As I continued to practice, Shanti recommended that I learn to teach and I underwent a year long apprenticeship with him in 1979. I then began to teach for a couple of years. In 1984, I began to study martial arts at the ninja karate Academy. I did that for 11 years. In 1986, I began to teach yoga, meditation, guided visualizations in various settings, and have continued to do so ever since. In 1987, I began to study and practice massage therapy. I continued to study many forms of massage and bodywork including neuromuscular therapy which I have over 900 hours of training, in addition to many many hours of study. Some of the other things I've studied are; Myofascial release, and Craniosacral therapy, which I continue to study, visceral massage, Sports massage, Thai yoga massage, shiatsu, reflexology, various types of energy work such as polarity and Reiki - I am a double Reiki master in both the Usi and Karuna styles. Other things I'm trained in and practice are; transformational breathing, hypnotherapy and brain spotting. My specialty is in relieving pain, restoring posture alignment and healthy functioning, helping to reduce injuries, working with athletes to achieve peak performance, and just helping to improve the quality of life for people and their overall health looking at things holistically.
