||Prior to entering the massage therapy field I was pursuing a degree in psychology, and working as an adolescent Addictions Counselor. I enjoyed working with teens; guiding their minds and hearts to a loving power greater then themselves. These life changing results drove me to an even greater love for God and man.
In the summer of 2004, I went
on a two week spiritual retreat to Bimini in the Bahamas
to swim with the dolphins in the wild. This was the
hiatus of a life time! Here I began to fully open to
a divinely inspired path. I received an absolutely unforgettable
bodywork session by a woman named Amlas. It was on her
table that I began to see and feel the unprecedented
correspondence between the mind and body.
The moment I arrived back to
my home in Holland, PA I fervently began searching for
massage schools. Much to my dismay, I was unable to
find a school for massage therapy which focused on the
emotional aspects of massage, as well as the physical.
Finally, a little over one year later, in October of
2005 I had found a school whose mission was a perfect
fit for the knowledge I had come to know.
Located in breathtaking Algarve,
Portugal The Green Mountain Institute for Integrative
Therapy, is where I received a solid foundation in all
aspects of massage including but not limited to: anatomy
and physiology, theory, technique, ethics, psychology
of the body, emotional awareness, the phenomenon of
body armoring, and a wide array of modalities (Swedish
Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy (Deep Tissue Massage), Pregnancy Massage, Sports Specific
Massage, and Craniosacral Therapy).
My stay in Portugal was a profound experience! Not only
did I learn how to assist in ones healing, but I also
had the opportunity to heal some of my deepest wounds,
so that I may better serve the needs of others. I truly
believe in walking the talk and paving the way to heath
and wholeness. Leading by example is one way we can
change the world for the better - one person, one soul,
and one spirit at a time.
For the first two years of my
massage career I worked with five chiropractors in the
Bucks County area. I have much experience treating patients
with a wide variety of ailments including: Arthritis,
Bursitis, Osteoporosis, Herniated Discs, Bulging Discs,
Degenerative Discs, Frozen Shoulder, Neuropathy, Misuse/
Overuse, Chronic Tension, Poor Posture, Fybromyalsia,
etc. I have also worked with individuals to relieve
mental/emotional imbalances such as Anxiety, Depression,
OCD, ADD, ADHD, Addiction, and Post Traumatic Stress
I believe that at the core we are all crying out to be reborn! We were made in the image and likeness of God, but because of our human experience we become disconnected from God, and we begin to form untrue judgments and realities about ourselves, others, and the world in which we live. In turn we become emotionally over reactive or under reactive, thus causing the manifestation of discomfort, stress, illness, and disease. Through massage therapy our bodies can receive the nourishment it needs for us to begin to identify and allow God to heal the limiting thoughts and patterns that no longer serve our highest needs, so that we may thrive in His fullness.
Massage therapy is a beautifully
safe and non-judgmental platform that you may utilize
to implement and maintain balance, wholeness, health,
and happiness into your life. Oh and let's not forget,
it feels amazing and will give you immediate and long
I do hope that one day our paths will meet. Until then
may you be blessed with
