I am studying to be a Massage Therapist at McKinnon Institute. I currently offer personalized Thai infused Swedish massage that focuses on releasing tension in both the body and the mind. Our bodies hold so much and by working the body, we also can work the mind. Through massage, we build awareness of what is going on in our bodies which can also bring attention to deeper aspects of what is going on in our busy brains. By spending time with our muscles and bones, we can learn more about ourselves, our holding patterns and hopefully walk away with a sense of release and renewal.
“Body is not marble. That is not its purpose. Its purpose is to protect, contain, support and fire the spirit and soul within it, to be a repository for memory, to fill us with feeling - that is the supreme psychic nourishment. It is to lift us and propel us, to fill us with feeling to prove that we exist, that we are here…”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
