Practice Philosophy: I believe your body is precious and this life is a gift. One of the ways we can enjoy life more is to take good care of our bodies. And receiving therapeutic, nurturing touch, such as massage, is important. Massage isn't just a luxury; it's an essential for optimal health, happiness, and well-being.
Why I do what I do: See my philosophy above.... Plus, I do what I do because I love helping others relax and feel better in their bodies. I believe that when we receive massage on a regular basis, we are better able to relax and enjoy life and befriend our bodies. And I love helping people get their touch needs met, especially the aging population or those going through times of grief. Touch is a basic human need that is too often neglected and forgotten. Professional massage is a great way to receive healing, soothing, nurturing touch.
A little bit about me: In addition to bodywork, I love teaching qigong (chi gong). It's a meditative movement practice, and the specific type I teach (Sheng Zhen, pronounced "shung jen") helps people feel happier, healthier, and more energized and relaxed. I'm also a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and in the process of writing my 2nd book. I love to dance. I'm a Mercer Island, WA native who has moved around a lot and recently returned to settle down in Seattle.
