Meet Miriam, LMT at TK for 11 years!
From a very young age I learned to love all living things. Especially, horses. Being introduced to the world of horses at the age of five was a gift that has encompassed most of my life. I also was given the gift of music in the form of piano and then flute lessons. With the influence of growing up with a psychotherapist-mother, while studying music in college I developed an interest in music therapy. So, I studied psychology. I loved psychology, but there was something tangible missing. Noticing my intention to help others, my mother suggested taking a massage intro class at Chicago School of Massage Therapy. It felt so very right! After attending massage school I became a licensed massage therapist in July of 2007. My very first massage interview was later within the same month at Therapeutic Kneads and Sandy hired me. Helping people heal, relax and reduce their pain was amazing!
As much as I loved massage, I felt there could be something more that I could do for clients. Soon after, I heard about a type of bodywork that used slow movements to change brain pattern to facilitate change in the muscles, improve posture, and fine-tune and correct movement. My first experience with Hanna Somatic Education came in 2009 during a visit with some friends in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. My two-hour session left me floored, more relaxed and more connected with my body than I’d ever felt before. My training in Hanna Somatics started in 2011 and was completed in 2016. Hanna Somatics has changed the way I see people’s body structures, of all ages, and enhanced my massage treatments in the way I am able to plan, prioritize and execute techniques for the clients’ needs and expectations, bringing the mind and body together.
