I graduated from the International School of Shiatsu in 2008 and am always continuing my education. I am licensed as a Certified Massage Therapist in the state of Virginia and am trained in shiatsu, swedish massage, deep tissue, cranial sacral therapy, fascia release, structural alignment, reflexology, lymphatic drainage, prenatal massage, and natural spa treatments. I have apprenticed with acupuncturists, herbalists, and a podiatrist. I work with all-natural ingredients; harvested locally and minimally processed.
My intention is to de-mystify health-care and empower clients with self-care skills. My role as a bodyworker is as an assistant to the body’s innate self-healing processes. Natural healthcare should be affordable and accessible to everyone. I help people find their personal basket of home remedies to maintain daily wellness and vitality.
RESPIRE Healing Arts is based on the farm in Panama, but I practice Shiatsu wherever I am, so please check the website’s homepage to see if I am traveling to your area.
