Beyond my formal education, my studies are ongoing.  When I train in a movement technique, it's only the beginning of a life-long practice and inquiry.  As I study more techniques for longer periods of time, I bring them together in ways I could never have predicted when I began.  I regularly continue my education in various workshops, visits with my teachers and therapists, and through a personal movement practice. 

 

My movement practice helped me overcome severe chronic back pain.  After years of dissatisfaction with traditional methods of physical therapy and chiropractic care, I sought out the best teachers and mentors in the most cutting edge somatic techniques, and over time I learned a safe and sustainable approach to understanding, treating, and exploring my own physical challenges.  My movement practice now does much more than treat and prevent pain;  it gives me confidence to try new things, puts simplicity and comfort into my daily activities, elevates my mood, teaches me deep knowledge about myself, and stimulates my curiosity about the nature of learning and the human condition.  I am amazed by the benefits of my study.  At 40 years old, I'm more comfortable, mobile, capable, stronger, longer, confident, and present than I've ever been in my life.  My experience in particular with the Feldenkrais® method and John Barnes Myofascial Release has given me consistently effective tools for self-improvement and embodiment, and I believe it can do the same for you. 

I'm interested in giving a person the tools they need to feel that their goals are within reach and do the activities they want to do.  People who come to me for help are approached via their whole self.  No muscle or function is isolated, no body viewed as without a history, context, humanity ...  It is this outlook that I believe is most promising in treating the once untreatable and helping people realize their own unique and limitless potential.
