My Philosophy on Healing: Our bodies are always being torn down through work, playing hard, injury, accidents, surgery, sickness and even sitting too long. Our bodies also have a tremendous capacity to be rebuilt. In 2012 I was in a motorcycle accident that broke my femur and pelvis. I was unable to walk for months. I am a living testimony to how much the body can endure and be renewed. I believe that massage is a one of the best ways to recover from an injury big or small, prevent/manage chronic pain and relieve the stress of everyday life.
