My interest in the
healing arts and sciences began with my discoveries for healing my own
injuries, traumas and illnesses, and later, for those of my family. These discoveries
turned into areas of research into natural healing, including nutrition,
homeopathy, psychotherapy and bodywork. My focus always came from the
understanding of the fundamental wholeness of life and of each individual.
I formalized my education when I began my studies and certification process
in 1998 with the Upledger Institute of Florida
and the Acupressure Institute of California. While I continually add to my
training from these and other excellent educational institutions, I am
still guided by my appreciation of the whole individual with untold facets.
My clients have been my most valued teachers, as I continue to learn how to
support each person's healing process, and find inspiration to deepen my
awareness and knowledge base. I've been fortunate to work with adults and
children of all ages, as well as animals.
I am diplomate
certified as a CranioSacral Therapist (CST-D) by
the Upledger Institute (UI) and I am also a certified Teaching Assistant for the UI.
My continuing education includes advanced studies in Lymph Drainage,
Visceral Manipulation, Brain Curriculum and other related courses. I lead
UI-sponsored Study Groups monthly for CranioSacral
Therapy practitioners. I am also certified as a Massage Therapist in
Acupressure (CMT), with a Specialization in Pain Management by the
Acupressure Institute. I have added the BodyTalk
System to my therapeutic skills, and I teach Tai Chi for Arthritis®.
