I work with the individual to relieve their symptoms based on how they present at the time of their appointment. I tend to do a therapeutic massage by employing all the skills I have for the best outcome for the client.

May 2010 - November 2013
I have worked in many venues and many towns as a subcontractor honing my skills as a massage therapist. Over the years I have attended many classes to improve my ability to help my clients. In 2003 I attended schooling for Polarity and achieved Associate status in the Polarity field. This lead me to the Upledger classes in Craniosacral, Lymph Drainage, and Visceral Manipulation. I learned much but still felt like I was missing something and rediscovered Polarity years later. IHHC had developed a degree program called Holistic Healthcare Practitioner/Coach and I am currently enrolled in this program. I am also finishing courses for Holistic Health Adviser and Corporate Wellness Coach. Upon completion, I will be working with my clients in a much more comprehensive manner to better serve their individual needs. In this symptom-based healthcare society, I feel the "whole" person is being missed and thus the "well-care" part of healthcare. My goal is to put myself out of business by encouraging my clients towards a lifetime commitment of well-care that they can manage themselves. It is a win-win situation when I can help my clients towards a healthy lifestyle. I feel I am providing a valuable service, my clients improve in their health, and health costs go down for them and everybody else.
Expansion of business
My partner, Amanda Conn and I are preparing to move into larger space at the Sutton Center in Port Clinton, Oh. This will allow us to do more consulting with our clients to set a standard of more comprehensive management of our clients "well-care" needs through the use of our skills achieved through the Institute of Holistic Health Careers in Columbus and Cleveland, OH.
