Thank you for visiting my Vibrant Being website.
Because all healers are different, I'd like to tell you a little about my work so you can decide if my approach is right for you.
Therapeutic Massage is one aspect of my healing practice. I have been licensed as a massage therapist (#4492) in North Carolina since 2004 and I taught hands-on anatomy to massage students for several years, so I know my way around the muscular and skeletal systems. I will work with you to look for the source of your problem: postural patterns, how you use your body, where you tend to hold your stress, and even how patterns of thought might manifest physically. While I'm locating and treating the specific muscles that are in spasm and that need attention, we are likely to enter into a dialogue because I have found that the physical body tends to hold memories, and when we really listen to it, the deepest and most long-lasting healing can begin.
I am a 4th year student (in a 7 year program) of NIASZIIH (pronounced Ny-a-zee-EYE), a nature-based tradition that promotes healing through deep contact and awareness of the wounds we carry. These wounds, although generally hidden to us, have likely been running our lives like "the man behind the curtain" in the movie The Wizard of Oz. Once we bring awareness to them, we often find that the body can stop attempting to communicate with you through pain and dysfunction, thus freeing you to live your life to its fullest.
I also attend to your energy body (aka the bioenergetic field), the part of yourself that extends beyond the limits of your physical body. Energy follows thought, and physical health follows energy. For example, depression often shows up as a contraction in the energetic field, and a contracted or blocked energetic field can limit the body's ability to create optimal physical health. My interest in this work led me to become a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP) in 2005.
It is a rare session that does not tap into all of these modalities to some degree. I am by nature a curious person and I love the challenge of getting to the root of what's troubling you, wherever it leads us.

I am also one of the healers in a monthly donation-based Niasziih clinic in Winston-Salem. In the clinic, clients can experience a healing with two or more Niasziih students or practitioners working synergistically. If you'd like to participate in our student clinic, here is more information about how to book an appointment there: https://www.niasziihhealingclinic.org/
It's worth mentioning that the kind of therapeutic work I do is not the same as a "deep tissue massage". While I understand that some people enjoy massage with really deep pressure, that's not my thing (but I can refer you to several good deep tissue therapists who love to do that sort of work!)
Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!
