Brenda has her own personal experience which drew her to the Healing Arts. Having suffered from Asthma and acute back pain for many years when she was younger, she found that both massage therapy and yoga were key to her recovery. Nowadays she is pain free and breathes easily. She wants to share this knowledge.
"I want people to know that they can take back control of their bodies and stop pain. I want to use massage therapy with people to help alleviate the pain but I want them to take responsibility too for their bodies by giving them the tools to do exactly that. These tools can be mastered through the practice of Yoga, breath-work and meditation".
