Breath Play & Gentle Yoga Class
Other than our normal, super AWESOME sessions together, my space allows for small yoga classes. I believe that yoga is an important, key part of helping the Neuromuscular work that I do, really stick effectively! It has helped me personally lose weight, and love myself wherever I'm at in my health journey. I am so excited about offering Breath Play & Gentle Yoga Class that starts @ 12:15pm, every Monday (in my studio space) starting August 3, 2015 for donation only. We will stick to a 12:15-1:00pm time for those who need to get back to work. From 1:00-1:30pm, we will continue with massage in poses and meditation. Space is limited, so you may sign up on clipboard outside of my Suite D, or text me to reserve your spot at 423.443.6861. Of course, you are always welcome to peek in & see if there is enough room right before the class as well. Everybody is welcome!
Yoga is for EVERYBODY & EVERY BODY. I truly believe this, and I am ready to live it out! After much meditation on my own, and guidance from a few Yogis that I respect, I have decided to start my journey of teaching yoga. Yoga means union or a joining together. To me it is about joining breath, body, mind, and spirit.
A wise Yogini once told me that Yoga is about creating space. Space in the breath, space in the body, and space in our lives for time on the mat. I am creating space in my own practice to help those along in the healing journey with the healing practice of yoga. Come join me on Mondays during lunch for a positive community practice.

For over 9 years I have had the honor of helping many different people along the path in their health journey. I have been a licensed massage therapist in the state of Tennessee for over 7 years and I have found that there are many therapeutic effects of massage. The therapeutic benefits of massage continue to be researched and studied. Recent research has shown the effectiveness of massage for the following conditions:
* Cancer-related fatigue
* Low back pain
* Osteoarthritis of the knee
* Reducing post operative pain
* Boosting the body's immune system functioning
* Decreasing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
* Lowering blood pressure
* Reducing headache frequency
* Decreasing pain in cancer patients
* Easing alcohol withdrawl
I specialize in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT). Specializing in Neuromuscular Therapy means that I help with the care of soft tissue pain and dysfunction. This means that I get to help all sorts of people feel great, move great, and live great.
Neuromuscular Therapy is an intense but very effective way of helping the muscles and surrounding connective tissues feel & function better.
I also practice Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese type of energy work used to balance and relax the body. It promotes healing. I am a Reiki practictioner of the Usui Shiki Ryoho system. Loosely translated from Japanese, Reiki means "life-force energy", "God's energy", or "good energy". Reiki can only be channeled by someone who has been attuned to it by a 3rd degree Reiki Master.
A full Reiki session involves balancing the body's energy through treating different energy points in the body called Chakras. Reiki may also be directed to specific areas as well. There have been studies done on the human energy field. One of the most exciting ones that showed some evidence of actual impact on the body's energy was done at UCLA in 1988. By hooking up electrodes during a Neuromuscular Therapy session, they were able to see changes in millivoltage signals from the body. Bottom line, some evidence that bodywork & human touch can affect energy in the human body!
NOW OFFERING REIKI FOR ATHLETES
Whether you are an athlete that experiences muscular stress from the high demand of performance, a parent that always goes the distance, or a desk jockey/ athlete of life that is hunched over a computer all day...your body can benefit from Reiki!

way for me to make my own totally natural, cleaning spray! I even use it

your skin if you do yoga in the studio! If you're
