BRIAN

Massage therapy was a passion brought on initially by Brian's congenital joint problems and accumulative stresses of more than a decade of commercial fishing. Brian felt energetically drained and anxious of the potential consequences of the chronic pain issues that had for a long time limited him. His body had become a source of dread of what the future might hold.  However, a fateful meeting with an accomplished massage master led to a transformative bodywork session, at the end of which Brian knew that he had to practice massage himself.

Many bodywork sessions later and with the aid of numerous physical practices, Brian now has greater strength and less pain than at any time in his life.  This success is something he would like to share with clients, many who like himself may fear the degradation of their bodies due to stress and aging.

She believes that you are your own best healer and her role is to help facilitate the shifts that help you live your best life.
