I believe that every physical being has within it the capability and the desire to self heal, but sometimes we need some help.  Life today for people and animals is very stressful, often unnatural, and our bodies show the strain of this lifestyle.  I strive to combine science, bodywork, and philosophy as appropriate to provide an opportunity for the mind and body to heal itself.  I do truly believe that we are all lit from within, but sometimes we need a window cleaning to help that light shine.  Consider me your personal windshield wiper to help you clean the glass and see in and out more clearly.
