You may be curious as to how all of this fits together. It has been my experience that therapy presents itself in many forms. At a very young age I was given a challenging physical diagnosis that was debilitating. I was told for many years that I was destined to be in a wheelchair probably by sometime in my early 30’s. That was devastating and frightening. For many years I gave way to that thought process.
Then decided in my early adult years that that just wasn’t acceptable and there must be something I could do. I had enjoyed movement and dance when I was able to and with encouragement from friends, decided to
give ballroom dance a try. Coupled with strength training, my conditionimproved continually. My passion grew and I taught ballroom dance professionally for years in the Tampa Bay Area. A great deal of my training was with former U.S. Latin Champion.
These life circumstances brought me into a study of various forms of bodywork to decrease pain and promote mobility and into a new health and wellness industry. It has culminated into a wonderful concept of fun exercise in movement and bodywork.I have been serving the central Pinellas County area for several years and am now located in Clearwater. My most recent quest is with Tai Chi for Arthritis. It is an excellent form of strength training, fun and easy to learn, and is artistic in expression.
