I was a computer software developer in my first career -- I have personal experience of your pain after sitting behind a computer all day. I study the processes that create pain and discomfort in your body, and I have made it my business to find the answers and the pain relief for you.

I celebrate the completion of 3,070 hours of training in the healing arts!

The more I learn, the more I discover that our physical and spiritual symptoms have many sources, especially the family system.  I use all of my training to help resolve these issues of pain and difficulty which sometimes seem to have mysterious origin.

People all over the world choose massage therapy daily for their aches and pains, and now you can too!

Shamanic Credentials

Please be very, very suspicious of any certification 'proving' power or shamanic ability: the Spirits alone confer the power and the abilities, not an organization.

My Personal Statement
I am a fallible human who claims neither perfection nor mastery. I am a man on my Path, committed to my own daily healing and growth and willing to support those who are on their own healing journey, physically and spiritually.

These are all of the trainings I have taken to-date. I continue to study, and I continue to talk to the Compassionate Helping Spirits daily.
