Founder of Body-Matrix Specialist
Touching has been always part of my life. One of my favourite child games was Play Doh! I loved to squish, roll, press, scratch the colourful dough. I imagined how God felt as He created the world. I molded life in different shapes: animals, mermaids, houses, burgers and birthday cakes.
I believe the hand is an extension of the heart. It is through touch, that we can give, and receive. The hand is the chief organ for the sense of touch and it allows us to communicate our words, emotions and ideas and interpret the environment.
As a bodyworker therapist, I use my hands to interpret bodies and experience the power of touch every day. I could be working with a traumatic brain stem injury, a hyperactive child, or a dog with a hip injury, but it never seems like work. Everyday is different because every individual is different. Through touch, I create a dialog between my hands and the body I am working on.
For over 15 years, I have worked at sporting events, physiotherapy clients, at spas and hospitals. My clients range from athletes and everyday people who present with specific injuries, to anyone who simply wants to get physically unstuck; to improve their mobility, agility, balance, and strength. With mindful movements and a creative touch, I work with people to fix their scar tissue, old injuries and reduce their pain.
When I touch someone, I feel the movement, the rhythms, the density and the restrictions. Like Colombo investigating a crime scene. Led by my hands, I engage all of my senses to uncover any tension and pain points; even ones my clients weren’t aware of. My secret? I have scanners in my eyes and fingertips.
