Anatomy in Motion
I began my journey with holistic healing when my 3rd knee surgery left me with pain, limited mobility, and a fear of using my body in the ways I had once enjoyed. Years of conventional therapy failed to provide relief, and I felt scared and out of control of my body. I decided to quit a corporate job in New York City and began studying bodywork and holistic healing full time. I have trained with some of the world’s best holistic practitioners across a range of disciplines and am continually amazed by peoples’ stories about how these approaches have succeeded where conventional methods have failed. My sessions are designed to treat the root cause and unwind old habits that cause restricted mobility, chronic pain, and diminished quality of life. You will leave with a newfound freedom of movement and the sense of well being that comes from discovering your body’s natural balance.
