Co-Creator of River Family Wellness, Acupuncture, Bodywork, Herbs
I find inspiration from all aspects of holistic healing. In 2010, I received my degree in Massage Therapy from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. This laid a strong foundation in a therapeutic, western style of massage. This included deep tissue, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, sports massage, and injury & pain management.
I'm also a graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, where I received a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in 2017. As an acupuncturist and herbalist, I'm able to treat a variety of conditions: ranging from musculoskeletal pain, mental-emotional issues, digestive issues, women and men's health, addiction/recovery, and more. My patients can expect to find a balance of deep relaxation, while also receiving focused and detailed therapeutic work on areas of concern or pain.
Along with my knowledge of western massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine, I have a deep appreciation and interest in eastern modalities and energetic healing. These studies include yoga, qigong, traditional Thai massage, tuina, quantum shiatsu, and Reiki.
These studies help support my commitment to practice truly holistic therapies- enhancing and uplifting physical, mental and emotional states, while contributing to an overall sense of well-being.
