About our Facilitator

August starting practicing massage therapy over 10 years ago at Centerpoint in Minneapolis where she completed her studies in a extensive program of Shiatsu and Western Massage. Her work has carried from that training and since followed in Ashiatsu Deep Feet therapy, Thai massage, and Yoga Practitioner Training. August thinks of the body as a whole organism with parts that are connected to ourselves like a map on all levels physical, mental, emotional. She believes that to care for one’s body and work with its limitations and freedoms with grace and patience is necessary and beautiful work.

Her work spans in depth – from light to deep, specific to broad – as session is adjusted knowledgeably and intuitively around the map of you. She can include rehabilitative work focused around such issues as rotator cuff injury, sciatica, and back pain as well as provide more gentle for supporting work for embodied symptoms that may come with insomnia, anxiety, grief, and depression.

June 2019 she will be registered as a CEIM, Certified Educator in Infant Massage, through IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage). She loves teaching Massage to parents with babies under one or up to 7 for those who have children with different needs. Teachings are focused around not just the strokes but most importantly around encouraging the bonds of early life between parents and their children. She is also ASL and tactile ASL friendly and plans to get her DONA certification in August 2019 and start school to become an O.T. in 2020.
