Meet Andy

 A bit about me:

Ever since I left my job as a research biologist in 2017, I have felt a call towards creating a space for wellness that is intentionally inclusive of as many bodies and experiences as possible.    

 

As a queer, polyamorous, neurodivergent trans man and trauma survivor, I have struggled on my own wellness journey to find spaces that felt like home-- that knew how to hold my body and my experience with the tenderness it needed. At the same time, resources like meditation, bodywork, and community have been necessary tools of survival for me as I moved toward a life of embodiment and well-being.  

It's a dream come true to be able to help people feel better in their bodies, whether that's recovery from an injury or surgery, or holding compassionate space for people to receive care for their bodies and spirit, every body is welcome to receive care on my table.  

My massage practice: 

My practice is trans-positive, fat-positive, neurodivergent-positive, trauma-informed, and believes that black lives matter and deserve to be held, seen, and cared for with radical tenderness and compassion.

I studied massage at Midwest Institute in 2020, where I learned about various useful massage techniques such as Swedish massage, deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, hot stone massage, lymphatic drainage, and reflexology.  I've since continued my training as a massage therapist and studied scar tissue release, reiki, and sound healing.  

Through my own journey in understanding my own trauma and developing a positive relationship with my body, I have also cultivated my practice to be a place for all bodies and spirits to be seen and cared for in a way that serves their needs most.
