Her current work consists of working with the NMT training, Ortho-Bionomy principles, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, and an eclectic mix of acupressure and energetic unwinding modalities.

The benefits of the work can range from relaxation with a Swedish massage to addressing longer held patterns and body alignment issues with the neuromuscular therapy work and myofascial release techniques.
