My Story

My interest in bodywork began at age 14. I was first attracted to energy work, Swedish massage, and Reflexology. I quickly developed a passion for anatomy. During my career as a university professor (Linguistics and Speech Pathology), i offered massage on a part-time basis to people in my family and among friends. 

In the last 12 years, i’ve received training in the following modalities: Craniosacral, Structural/Myofascial, Neurokinetic Therapy, Chi Nei Tsang, Karsai Nei Tsang, Thai Massage, Stretching Therapy (AIS & Ki-Hara), Foot Reflexology, Tantric Yoni Massage, and Reiki. I also completed a 200-hour Yoga Alignment teacher training in 2017 and partook the Compassionate Inquiry training with Gabor Mate. 

My work is at the moment in a legal grey zone. I occasionally use pleasure to move organs or stimulate the production of specific hormones; different pleasure areas brings different contractions and stimulate specific glands. When i work on sexual issues, the work sometimes involve pleasure, but only with very clear request from the client, and with the goal of healing and growth; I don't do pleasure for pleasure without a goal. I works exclusively with my hands, energy and breath. 

Since leaving from my university position, i’ve divided my time between Thailand, Korea, Sri Lanka, Berlin, Spain, Bali, and Vancouver, BC. Outside of my work, i enjoy practicing yoga, conservation diving, hiking, and traveling.  I have two amazing grown up children.

I now live in Vancouver, BC with my wonderful partner Ashley Rose (
