Here is my background and training in bodywork, Chinese medicine, qigong and martial arts.
practicing massage therapy part time in 1984, after a period of informal training with other bodywork therapists. I began my formal training in 1986 with Dr. Mark Manton ND, in a small group setting. Dr. Manton was
setting up his school (The Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado) at the time, and was also on the faculty of the Florida School of Massage. Fortunately for me, he taught us some health building exercises from the
Chinese martial arts and highly recommended studying Taijiquan (Tai Chi).
I started Yang-style taiji in 1986 and was introduced to other qigong practices two years later. I am currently pursuing training in Chen-style
taijiquan and Yin-style bagua.
In 1988 I began a two year clinical apprenticeship in Acupressure and Chinese Medicine with Dr. Scott Graysmith, Dipl. Ac.
Most recently, in 1996, I began to study qi development
exercise and Yin-style bagua energy-bodywork with Dr. Xie Peiqi of Beijing. This training has greatly influenced my bodywork in recent years.
