In my 13+ years as a bodyworker, I have had the privilege to work hundreds of different individuals in a wide variety of physical, emotional and energetic states. I have a natural curiosity about the amazing human body and how it works. This type of work continues to feed that curiosity.
To date, I have spent nearly 9,000 hours performing over 7,500 personalized Bodywork Sessions. The gifts that I have gained by working with my clients, along with the extensive training that I have received in many body and energy work modalities have taught me to trust both my natural intuition as a bodyworker. These experiences have developed what I have come to call "Intuitive Bodywork".
I started my bodywork practice soon after graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 2004. Together with my colleague Donna Bilek we opened the earthwalk Center for Wholeness where I continue to practice today, 13 years later.
Since completing my initial massage training I have had multiple Reiki attunements as well as additional training with the Upledger Institute & Chikly Institute in Lymph Drainage Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy as well as Visceral Manipulation and Kinesiotaping.
Practicing Yoga regularly since 2001, I completed a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher training with Bob Glickstein with a focus on the Iyengar Method of Yoga over 15 years ago. Through training in the anatomy of yoga as well as through my bodywork training I have amassed a deeper understanding of how the body functions during a yoga practice and am able to relay the information in easy to understand instruction.
Intuitive Bodywork combines my experience with multiple modalities, including Swedish & Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Reiki, Hara & Grid Line Repair, CranioSacral Therapy, Lymph Drainage Therapy and Visceral Manipulation to give each client a wonderful and effective bodywork experience. As a result of our ongoing dialogue, each of your sessions is a customized blend of modalities that best serve you at the time of your sessions.
My teaching style of yoga is based on a desire to challenge my students to play with their edges while being light and humorous and focusing on precision and proper alignment of poses as well as effective breath work.
