My love and passion for shiatsu runs deep. I hold a Diploma of Shiatsu Therapy from the Shiatsu School of Canada in Toronto, where I studied over 2,000 hours of shiatsu. However, my training began long ago.
Events in my early life threw me out of alignment with myself, and my journey has been to find my way back.
Through years of travel and seeking a place to call home, I have without a doubt come to learn that my home is really where I am deeply rooted in my body.
I have experienced many physical symptoms over the years and it wasn't until I approached these on a holistic level - through shiatsu- that I started to experience major shifts. Through years of discomfort and pain, I have experienced on a personal level how wellness really is of the mind, body and spirit.
I believe wholeheartedly that one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is the reconnection to the wisdom we hold within our bodies. I trust that everyone has the power to access this. I feel profound healing can happen when we really slow down and listen. Through shiatsu treatments, your entire being has an opportunity to release physical and energetic blockages, realign and tap into this inner wisdom. As your nervous system relaxes at a deep level, you will also see a shift in how you experience your body, as well as your inner and outer worlds.
My passion and commitment now is to share with others the experience of being in a body that feels safe and nurturing, and that opens the space for lasting change.
I also hold a Bachelors of Social Work degree and have been working with young people in various capacities for the past 15 years.
