Graduated Alive and Well's school of conscious bodywork in 2000. Practiced around the Bay Area, mostly in Marin county until moving to Santa Rosa, CA. Met with Shinzo in 2004 and studied shiatsu with him when I could for two years at Harbin's school of Watsu and Shiatsu. Shinzo, being of Japanese origin and being a black belt in Aikido became my like my Sensai and I consider my style to be known as Shinzokiatsu as it is a blend of heart(shinzo) energy(ki) pressure(atsu). In 2010 I studied NLP with the Dr Gary Daniels and 2011 became a certified Reconnective Healer as well. My five years working with Cafe Gratitude taught me sacred commerce, nutritive health, and integrity. 2015 still incorporating all my skills along with my new certification in thai massage and yoga. I've much to learn still for my own path of being a healer but am thrilled to be in this practice and share my skills with whoever is choosing the opportunity to step into their own health and wellbeing. Namaste, and Aloha!
