Oh goodness that feels like a big question. I've been really grateful recently that the thing I am known for by others is resourcefulness, making helpful but not obvious connections, problem solving, and being a sounding board. I feel joy knowing that what I love to do is also what others appreciate about me.
Anti-racist communities. Racial and environmental justice is where I most commonly put my energy towards dismantling shitty systems.
Listen to audio-books. Go on walks. Power lift. Cook. Maybe the unusual thing I like is being in silence and letting my thoughts wander.
Coffee motivates me, but only in the morning. I'm easily inspired by talking to folks about what they like or are looking forward to in life.
A quarter life crisis and I thought there was a chance I could be good at it. It was a massive leap of faith. I had one massage in my life at that point and I hated it. But as a practitioner, it combined my knowledge of biomechanics and my kinesthetic/problem-solving nature. Bodies and how the nervous system, fascia, and muscles interact are a puzzle for me. Which is probably why I specialize in sports, acute and chronic injury, and rehabilitation.
That folks feel able, but by bit, to do the work to feel safe in their own bodies. It's been a rough ... couple decades.
It's queer owned and theres an explicitly anti-racist element. I actually wasn’t planning on coming back to massage after rehabilitating my hip until I heard about Auroraflow.
That they should say hi to their pets for me. And please make sure to remind them that they are perfect. Thanks.
Two things: Rest is a requirement, not a reward. And you cannot recover at the same intensity that you live or train.
In all seriousness? I love everything about doing massage and working with folks.
Make tomorrow easier for someone else. And yourself. Ideally both.
