Providing professional, therapeutic massage therapy for 12 years and teaching yoga for almost as long, Cheri’s deepest joy and passion are to help you with your stress relief, relaxation and healing. Cheri has a career of partnering with other health care practitioners like chiropractors, physical therapists and medical doctors to help her clients stay committed to their own health and wellness. Throughout her massage therapy career Cheri has worked in chiropractors offices, day spas and with medical doctors and physical therapists. This in addition to having a private massage and yoga practice in Redding, where she has lived now for over 6 years.Healing in the body is not just physical, but also emotional and spiritual and they are all linked in with each other. Cheri enjoys finding that space in herself and with others to open to grace of what area in the mind/body is ready for healing and transformation. A feeling of healing.
By deeply listening and being attuned to you and your body Cheri creates a safe and sacred space for your massage experience. She feels that now with so much stress in our lives, it makes a difference being listened to in mind, body and spirit, as that is where we all experience deep relaxation and true healing.
A practicing yogini for 15 years, Cheri is enamored with alternative health therapies, especially mind/body medicine and healing. She uses her own body as a tool for creative expression and inner guidance. Her personal life is filled with refining ways to lovingly relate to her own mind/body. Shakti dancing, yoga, massage, meditation and regularly communing with nature keep her grounded, inspired and loving life! You may find her walking barefoot along the rivertrail or hugging trees as nature is deeply healing. Also, physical fitness and healthy eating keep Cheri in a healthy place in herself so that she can offer that to her clients, something Cheri believes is of utmost importance when being a health and wellness practitioner. This is something Cheri has had to train herself at after early years of living on sugar, soda and fast food.
In addition, anything that has to do with the deeper levels of the human body is always interesting to her. She enjoys studying and experiencing quantum physics, spirituality and the powerful mind/body connection. Most anything to do with knowing the mind/body inside and out is what Cheri has created her life for, as she is here is to help raise consciousness through her own healing and through helping others heal too. She loves learning anything that brings her closer to a divine understanding that there is more to our human experience than meets the regular eye. Massage and Yoga are more than many people realize and she loves teaching that to the all the wonderful people in Redding and beyond. We can massage ourselves with our minds through awareness and this is true yoga on a deeper level and healing massage therapy for yourself at the deepest sense.
Cheri believes God gave us a body for us to enjoy being in it. Her philosophy when she teaches yoga(and with massage too) is simply bringing people into their bodies powerfully focused on their own unwinding, relaxation, healing.
