People usually find me through the world of massage, and over time, with a little exposure, end up incorporating skills and practices from some other areas within the realm of movement. Massage is a great way to have me help you get relaxed, but it is only a beginning. I haven't gotten a massage in over 3 years, despite having given many hundred of them. I know how to relax myself, and use my body skillfully so that i can solve my own problems.
Wouldn't you want to feel that good, and be that self sufficient?
One the way to helping you feel better, I will be drawing from a number of disciplines of which I am a skilled practitioner with 10+ years of experience in:
Massage Therapy: Trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofacial Release, Lomi Lomi, Sports, Orthopedic, Prenatal, Hot Stone, and a number of high end spa treatments
Feldenkrais Method: Working with people from a few days old (recovering from open heart surgery), to on their death bed (just to feel calm, and relaxed), I have been working with this method for myself for 20 years, and as a practitioner helping others for 10 years.
Personal Training: Worked as a personal trainer starting at age 20, helping people to improve their strength, flexibility, and technique.
Kinesiology: BS in Kinesiology from UMD focusing on Motor Learning, Motor Control, Human Development, Comparative Vertebrate Morphology, and Postural Control.
Martial Arts: Focusing mostly on Chinese martial arts, I am adept at Tai Chi, and Bagua. I hold medals at several regional level competitions, and fly around the country teaching workshops on how to improve your skill at martial arts.
Juggling: While this might sound irrelevant, I trained for about 10 years to be in the circus. I got to the level where I was juggling 9 balls. I learned a lot about how to learn, how to teach, and how to focus through the world of juggling and object manipulation.
Meditation: I have been practicing different forms of meditation to great results over the last 15 years
Neurolinguistic Programming: Having taken classes up to Trainer level in NLP, has dramatically changed my skill level with, and intentional use of language. Sometimes all you need to get a better result, is a better model, or a different way of thinking about the same problem.
