For the Body
As of November 2017, I am a licensed massage and bodywork therapist in the state of North Carolina. I’ve also completed programs in holistic aromatherapy through the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies, life coaching through Achology Academy of Modern Applied Psychology, and qigong and food-based healing through the Supreme Science Qigong Center. I hold professional memberships with the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA).
Presently I see clients out of a healing arts studio located in my home. Massage, aromatherapy treatments, and wellness consultations can all be scheduled online at your leisure. My life coaching practice requires a little more one-on-one planning, and can begin with an email to me expressing interest or as a topic you bring up during a wellness consultation. Learn more.
For the Planet
Our health (or lack thereof) is not solely a problem requiring individual solutions like taking better care of our bodies, booking a massage, or eating healthier food. There are real social design injustices which offset the benefit of choices like those or even make them impossible for us to access to begin with. And this relationship between our health and the design of our society often expresses itself in toxic and destructive ways for the environment too.
My own pursuit of alternatives to both these structural and personal toxicities has coalesced around this idea called permaculture. And in recognition of those economic and other social injustices which sometimes keep solutions out of reach, I’m dedicated to making as much of my work in permaculture as open-source as possible.
This is an evolving area of my practice, but for now I am offering back to the community blog posts on permaculture or related topics, as well as regular reports on the growth of my homestead or developments with other ecological experiments I am undertaking. Check back in the future for new ways I am helping permaculture take root in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
