Put Your Mind & Body At Ease
Relax, Release, Unwind
PRACTICE & PHILOSOPHY
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist with training and experience in a wide array of healing technologies. As a graduate of the Swedish Institute and the Upledger Institute, I was blessed to meet and study with some of the greatest Healers of my lifetime. After many years of maintaining a private practice in Manhattan, I am now seeing clients out of my comfortable home office in Hortonville, NY. Outside of my private practice I am a Permaculturist and raise much of my own food as well as maintain various gardens and pets. I enjoy the local fields and forests astride my beloved Tennessee Walker.
Over the years my personal journey has led me to study and practice some of the most cutting-edge therapies available for the physical body as well as in depth energy body therapy and traditional Shamanic healing ceremonies which are highlighted at my other website, Catskill Mountain Spirit . In my practice today, I offer all of these and more to those seeking relief, awareness, prevention, and autonomy.
“I believe I am here not to “fix” the problems of others but to assist them in their journey towards wholeness and health.”
