I am a Nurse Massage Therapist and I am mostly interested in helping people heal their bodies. I enjoy teaching my clients how to take a more active role in managing pain. In Western medicine, we often cover up a problem with medication to make life bearable until it gets so bad that further medical intervention is needed. Often surgeries are not necessary and can be avoided by aligning the body and developing healthier patterns of movement. I am very passionate about what I do. When I'm not doing bodywork, I enjoy hiking, yoga, live music and vegan cooking, I don't support the meat or dairy industries and my main goal in life is to encourage others to take responsibility for their own health and happiness, try to live a more sustainable lifestyle and play our part in healing our planet. I am currently living in downtown Colorado Springs with my lovely husband, Alex. We have an old, scruffy cat named Omar.
