Training Credentials/ Work experience
I have been in private practice in one form or another since 1996. From 2000- 01 i briefly worked as a teacher for integrative massage at the Boulder College for Massage Therapie.
Since 2001, i have been involved in studying/experiencing/practicing earthhonoring ceremony, most of it originating in the traditions of Peruvian curanderismo , more specifically, the Pachakuti Mesa tradition. It has been a great adventure to experience the transformation through the work and to basically have the initial understanding of the World as an intelligent Web of Life validated by it.
Training for the cranio-sacral work i received from the Polarity Institute in Boulder over a period of 2.5 years b/t 2000-2002
Training as a massage therapist i received in Boulder, CO, graduating in 1995 at BSMT.
For the Manual Lymph Drainage , i received the full 4 week training with the Vodder Institute. However, i do not provide the complete medical treatment [which includes bandaging] but only offer the manual sequences that cleanse and flush the system.
Additionally, i have a 4 year degree as a dance/movement therapist that i completed in my native country, Germany, in 1988.
Dance / movement therapy is a body-oriented form of psychotherapy . .
Part of my movement training has been in martial arts and, as another great teacher and teaching , contact improvisation - a dance that was pioneered in the 70/80ties in a melding of martial arts and dance /gymnastics
