Instructor of Polarity Therapy, Chair Massage
I graduated from the NMSNT in 2004. I began assisting in Polarity once I graduated and currently teach Polarity in the morning program as well as Chair Massage for all three programs. Prior to coming to NMSNT, I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biochemistry and have held various jobs including restaurant server, color chemist, middle school teacher, wildlife technician, and trail crew member.
My first experience with massage came at the hands of a chair massage therapist that my former employer invited to our facility on a weekly basis. I was always struck by how differently I approached my colleagues and my duties once I had received a mere 10-minute massage. While this experience planted the seed of interest in a career in massage therapy, it took me several years to find the right school for me.
My practice includes both table and chair massage in a variety of venues, such as a natural foods store, hospital waiting areas, a downtown corporate work site, as well as my own office. Wherever I practice bodywork, I strive to provide a safe space for my clients. It is in this safe space that relaxation can occur and the body is able to do the things it needs to do in order to revitalize itself. My interest in this revitalization process is the basis of my practice and my continuing studies in bodywork and homeopathy.
The privilege of instructing and interacting with the students at NMSNT has been a real source of inspiration for me. I am constantly moved by the enthusiasm and growth process that I witness in each and every class that passes through the school. I am always amazed at how each student digests the material that is presented to him through the curriculum and weaves it together into his own unique pattern.
