My life has been dedicated to mastering the art and science of healing by weaving together the roots of physiotherapy, a foundation of intuitive Thai massage and the heart of Shamanic Energy Medicine.
My first steps on a healing journey came in 1985 as I entered school for Physical Therapy. Although my intention at the time was to find a job with security, my body was desperate in its cry for healing. I began smoking at 11 years old. Fifteen years later as I entered PT school, my habit was up to 2 packs a day. Stepping into a field of health and healing was the spark that spurred the success to quit. How could I help others heal their body if I could not help myself? Not only did I quit, but the body I had suffocated with smoke and nicotine had gone on to run the NYC marathon in 3 1/2 hours just a few years later. The healing wisdom of the body awakened my path.
In the early days of my career I saw people with injuries in their body believing the problem was in the joint or muscle that was causing the pain. With time, evolution, and countless studies in contemporary and indigenous medicine ways, it became clear. Pain is a wake up call, a cry from the body to pay attention to something deeper. It is that something deeper I have dedicated my life to. It is that something deeper that keeps inspiring me on a healing path. It is that something deeper that calls to my soul. May you join me on a path that forever deepens.
