Functional Nutritionist &
Structural Integration Bodywork Practitioner
BCSI, RWP3, RYT CPT
There are many paths to health and well-being. I have used a combination of several modalities of bodywork, along with nutrition, lifestyle modifications, supplements, and movement (strength training, yoga, cycling, running) to heal my own body from the many symptoms and stressors that had compromised my health starting at a very young age.
As a certified *Restorative Wellness Practitioner, I am able to work with your body’s innate intelligence and facilitate lab testing paired with symptomology to determine the main stressors- aka "root cause" and nutritional deficiencies your body is experiencing. Through a combination of nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and targeted supplementation we will work together to address the root causes of your symptoms and provide the fuel and essential building blocks that your body needs to thrive.
As a Board Certified Structural Integrator, I am able to assess how efficiently or inefficiently your body is moving and create a plan to manually and systematically unwind restrictive patterns in the body that have developed over time so that your soft tissue system is more supportive and adaptable for your lifestyle.
*Restorative Wellness Solutions is a comprehensive functional nutrition certification for qualified health professionals.
As a child, I hated to exercise or play sports. I ate a lot of sugar and other refined foods with little to no nutritional value. Later in my teens, I was prescribed exogenous hormones and over the next 12-18 months senior year of high school and into college, I gained excess weight, felt depleted of energy, and developed acne on my face. My doctors told me that there was nothing to worry about and that everything was as it should be. "It's the stress of school and the freshman 15. It happens to everyone." That didn't feel like a very supportive diagnosis or advice.
In college, I began to exercise in hopes of losing the excess weight. To my surprise, in addition to losing weight, it also helped me alleviate stress and my emotional eating. Later in my 30s, the weight returned and I began having lots of digestive issues, body aches, and pains in my hips and lower extremities, I developed plantar fasciitis, migraines, eczema, and uncomfortable periods.
Over about 10 years, I went to several doctors of all kinds who had no real answers or solutions to my problems. Deep down, I knew there had to be another way to heal from the inside out, so I took control, and found the answers!
Structural bodywork along with nutrition, lifestyle enhancements, and stress management allowed my body to heal and rejuvenate itself from the inside out. I regained my vitality for life and I am able to do all the activities that bring me joy and fill me up!
