Russell has also completed a two hundred hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Program.

Choosing Massage

Clients often ask, “What got you into this kind of work?” Russell studied a variety of Martial Arts from an early age. The connection, or ambiguous line, between “mind” and “body” has always been of interest. While practicing Tai Chi, an instructor pointed out unnecessary tension in Russell’s abdominal area. “Why am I holding all of that tension in that area?”, Russell wondered. These extra tensions can exhaust us and pull us away from the present moment. A more relaxed and supple “body/mind” is a means to be more present in the moment. Russell has honed techniques that can help clients identify and release these tensions.
