Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist, Structural Integrator
Terri is a Healer, and a Dreamer, who uses Structural Integration, Massage and ancient shamanic teachings to help people create healing and self-awareness in their lives. She does her best to meet people where they are on their journey. Terri can walk between, and bridge, the worlds of the anatomy/medical model and that of energy healing. She believes in making things practical and grounded in our everyday world.
Terri has been doing healing work professionally since 1996 when she graduated as a Physical Therapist Assistant. She spent four years working in Physical Therapy with clients with head injuries, orthopedic and neurological disorders. As she was drawn to manual therapy, massage school and structural integration training were the next natural steps. She graduated from Medical Arts Massage School in 2000, began working with canines in 2005, and completed her KMI Structural Integration training in 2008. She is an instructor in the massage program at Wake Technical Community College and certified in pregnancy massage.
In 2009, Terri’s own healing journey led her to study ancient indigenous healing methods. Meeting Cherokee elder Will Rockingbear was life changing. He, and his apprentices, have helped Terri understand how to walk between the physical world, and the spirit world. They helped her understand that hearing, feeling and seeing things that others cannot, doesn’t have to be scary, nor does it mean that you are crazy. The increased sensitivity can be gifts that can offer access to deep healing for oneself, and others.
Terri has a great love of nature, especially trees and water. She enjoys spending time with her dogs hiking, and being creative. In her free time, she does wood carving, woodturning and pottery.
