Health and fitness have always been a passion of mine. From a young age, my mom encouraged me to participate in many sports and outdoor activities like swimming, rock climbing, horseback riding, martial arts, volleyball, and hiking. For years I treated my body rough and with very little forgiveness which ultimately lead to injuries, some of which I am still dealing with today.

I discovered the physical and emotional healing benefits of yoga after a weightlifting accident in high school that left me with a compressed disk. My body was never the same and I was hard on myself and hated the body I was living in, but yoga saved me. Through yoga I created new strengths and learned to love myself again, it also helped me to regain mobility in my spine that I thought I would never get back. These events helped me to discover my true passion and life’s purpose: helping people through bodywork.

It can help with

Worried woman
Mental Health

A study done of woman between the ages of 60 and 85 showed that incorporating a combination of yoga and massage into their week greatly reduced their symptoms of depression. 

Flexibility

Through a regular practice, the muscles are stretched and strengthened improving their flexibility and range of motion. Massage and Movement can help the muscles use their natural abilities to lengthen and contract creating stronger, longer muscles.

Posture 

A common discomfort that many people tolerate is Kyphosis of the spine, also known as tech neck or a widows hump. This posture can be caused by tension in the muscles that are causing the bones to move out of their natural position. Many have found relief from this and other ailments with massage, exercise, and stretching.

Stress

Both Yoga and Massage allow the body to enter a state of relaxation encouraging the body to release hormones that help repair and relax the body.
