Here at Guiding Hand, it is my intention to provide manual medicine for the rehabilitation of structural dysfunction and the improvement of overall health & well-being. Utilizing a combination of Jin Shou Tuina, CranioSacral, Structural Integration and Visceral Manipulation to aid clients in their path to greater comfort, stability and function.
This approach integrates both Eastern and Western modalities – drawing on the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acu-point and meridian theory to approach the client as an energetic whole – while also maintaining a strong foundation in the complex anatomy and structure of the body to provide a multi-faceted and holistic method of assessment and treatment.
I have studied and practiced manual medicine since 2007 as an extension of my training in Chinese martial arts and Qi Gong. Licensed in 2014, I transitioned from working as a carpenter to becoming a full-time clinician and teacher of both martial arts and manual medicine. Currently, I split my time between my clinical practice and teaching Eastern studies and Tuina at East West College of the Healing Arts.

JIN SHOU TUINA
Rooted in Classical Chinese Medicine, Tuina is a hands-on, movement-based approach to manual therapy. Works to clear the fluid-energetic pathways of the body to improve well-being.
Focuses on the nervous system and subtle body by engaging the axial skeleton and fascial planes. Craniosacral is gentle but deeply effective restorative work.
Employing strong knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology, we strive to bring about greater efficiency of movement and stability through bringing balance to the body.
Health and wellness are deeply dependent on the healthy movement of the internal terrain. Using a subtle but direct approach, we bring greater mobility to the organs and viscera of the body.
