Philosophy

I know that every human being is a mystery. A high tech marvel of physical body that has such incredible wisdom. It knows how to digest food, how to eliminate waste, how to distribute water molecules, all without the conscious mind thinking about it. It can heal the smallest of cuts and mend its own broken bones. It can make a baby! This body is a house in which emotions are felt. It has a mind, a memory, thoughts, an intellect. 5 senses! It dreams. It has intuitions and hunches. Such a wonder! It has the greatest ability to balance, to come out of balance, to find it’s balance again.

My job as the therapist is to soothe the symptoms of imbalance and dis ease, encourage you to relax (recovery becomes very difficult if stress or worry is present) and then provide you with some tools so you can access the potential inside of yourself to allow what it is you are needing to happen. Health, healing, understanding, relaxation, acceptance, peacefulness, strength, flexibility. What ever you need.

I am excited to meet you and look forward to being of service!

What my clients say...

I work with a 33 year old special needs individual who has joined me in the YogMed classes. It was amazing to witness this young lady’s posture improve from hunched over to almost perfectly erect in an 8 week time span, For myself, I found the classes to be very accommodating. Marthe would often adjust exercises I found too easy, to increase the challenge and as I have fibroids, she also gave alternative exercises to do that would not create pain in my lower belly It was a privilege to be in a class where I felt looked after. Marthe knows how to assess situations and uses her knowledge base as a springboard. Her classes are fun and easy going, but she makes us work so we can get the results we desire.
