Lian graduated from the Scherer Institute of Natural Healing in 2001. She opened her private practice and has been working in the field ever since. Her style is based in a solid Swedish Massage but may also incorporate other modalities as she works, such as Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial, and Acupressure.
She studied Ayurvedic Polarity Therapy and Nutrition with Amadea Morningstar and was privileged to be a teaching assistant. Amadea’s approach to Polarity Therapy informs part of the energy bodywork that Lian does today. The Marma Point therapy also taught by Amadea informs the Acupressure technique used by Lian in her sessions. Her Energy Bodywork Sessions are a combination of this training as well as her training with
Robert Schrei in Sourcepoint Therapy.
At Scherer, Lian learned a form of connective tissue bodywork that is in the family of myofascial bodywork now being taught by Tom Myers and his team of instructors.
Lian’s instructor, Peter Ehlers now travels the country teaching Tom Myers’ work. She is very grateful for what she learned from Peter, and feels this has grounded her myofascial bodywork sessions.
She utilizes what she learned over the years in yoga, meditation and breath to bring a sense of calm to her work. Lian completed a 250 hour certificate program in Herbal Medicine with Milagro Herbs and plans to use this information to help others create a
healing lifestyle for themselves.
