What is Tongen Touch™?
Tongen Touch™ is my holistic approach to healing and well-being that combines massage therapy with yoga, breath awareness, and other modalities. I created Tongen Touch™ after years of experience working with clients from all walks of life. I found that a holistic mind-body approach was the most effective way to help my clients achieve their wellness goals. I help my clients to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, boost energy levels, relieve pain and tension, and experience self-love and connection.
I’m truly grateful to be able to help people return home to their bodies and relieve pain as I provide a listening ear, compassionate hands + heart, and a skillful mind that works in service to healing!
Devotion to Listening Makes My Life a Pilgrimage…
I learn so much when I listen! I love the process of healing that happens when I listen in service to reconnecting heart + mind + body.
I moved to Colorado in 2008 to live in a yoga ashram for 7 months, where I learned the value of working within community, singing, and meditating everyday. Ayurvedic health practices were my introduction to working with people 1-1 and I was hooked! I earned my 200-hr Yoga Teacher Certification at the Shambhava School of Yoga.
I officially moved to Boulder to study at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy for 2 years, where I earned my 1000-hr Certification in Massage Therapy and 500-hr Associate Degree in Occupational Studies. Manual Therapy and Integrative Massage Sessions are based on this work.
After studying Orthopedic Massage, I entered a community intent on healing not just the body, but the spirit. I studied with the Institute for Phenomenal Touch for 4 years, earning a Master Practitioner Certification in Phenomenal Touch Massage. Within this community I was blessed to experience the kind of compassion that is truly rare, and I’m a *much* happier person for it! The Ocean Session is inspired by this work.
I’m incredibly grateful also to the Ridhwan School in Boulder, where I practiced The Diamond Approach for 6 years. The capacity to slow down and sense the present moment allows me to provide space for your mind-body-spirit integration. All of my sessions are deepened by this work.
Since 2016, I’ve been in deep relationship with a partner, and in 2021 I returned home to Florida to reunite with my birth family. Authentic Relating and Nonviolent Communication has been invaluable!
Tongen Touch™ is a blend of all of these and more, from my studies over the past 30 years.
Being in community with massage therapists, yoga practitioners, acupuncturists, talk therapists, movement and meditation teachers allows me to experience the real joy of connecting within responsive environments where we practice being present with ourselves and others, and I’m so grateful for this life.
