She recently became a trainer in this revolutionary system called Resistance Flexibility and Strength Training, also known as the Genius of Flexibility. This is a subtractive method of removing dense/scar tissue from the body while being actively stretched (pain-free). It correlates with the Chinese meridians and has personality traits that go with each organ. It is a complete system that covers the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of a person. In addition to her private practice, she also worked with the Women's Tennis Association and U.S. National Soccer team.
She has a broad, yet specialized understanding of the body/mind/spirit connection and how to facilitate healing with each individual client. She is enthusiastic, extremely committed to her work, and conducts services professionally, with a high level of dignity and integrity.
