My path to the healing and wellness field began with my own struggles with chronic pain. Feeling like an old man in my early twenties, experiencing pain that limited my movement and made my work in the restaurant and catering service industry difficult, I knew I needed to find ways to strengthen my body without creating too much stress and strain. I began learning Tai Chi in 2012 and found it to be a challenging but rewarding practice of mind-body cultivation. Around the same time, I also sought help from physical therapy and massage and bodywork. I first received John Barnes Myofascial Release in 2014, and immediately was impressed by the ability of the therapist to identify areas of restriction and help me release tension with only a gentle touch and occasional words of guidance.
Through the years of ups and downs in chronic pain, I was very grateful for the self-treatment techniques I learned from Myofascial Release therapists, and meditative movement practices from my Tai Chi teacher. My interest in fascia and healing deepened and I eventually realized that I wanted to explore further in these realms and use what I had learned to help other people also struggling with pain and other health issues.
In 2019 I attended massage therapy school at European Massage Therapy School in Las Vegas Nevada, where I was living and training Tai Chi with the Wantou Tai Chi Association. Immediately upon graduation I began attending Myofascial Release training seminars with John Barnes and fell in love even more with his profound healing methods, and gained a deeper appreciation for the complimentary synergy between his philosophy and that which I had been learning from my Tai Chi teachers. I also found that the foundational skills of body mechanics, sensitivity, and intentionality of touch which I had been developing in Tai Chi were directly applicable to massage and MFR.
As a therapist, I strive to bring my full attention and care to every treatment, employing my curiosity and intuition as well as my anatomical knowledge and bodywork experience. It is my goal to help people not only to alleviate pain but also to help people cultivate deeper awareness of their body and give them tools to unlock their fullest potential for embodied health and wellness.
I grew up in Centennial Colorado, and in my free time I enjoy cooking, spending time in nature, playing board games, reading and listening to audiobooks, music and dancing, appreciating and creating art, and exploring movement and embodiment practices.
