I've had a long-standing interest in how the human body works...
...as well as how to translate this knowledge into helping others. I started to take this passion seriously with my undergraduate study in pre-medicine, followed by a year of medical school. I quickly realized that I wanted to pursue a more holistic approach to health and wellness, and studied to become a massage therapist in 2010. This was the exciting start to my exploration of bodywork and movement.
I then stumbled upon Restorative Exercise in 2012. (I honestly don't remember how I found out about it, but I'm so glad I did!) After a few of years of self-directed study and practice, I was thrilled to complete the certification course and become a Nutritious Movement™-certified Restorative Exercise Specialist in early 2015.
Throughout this journey, my quality of life has significantly increased. The frequent migraines, low back pain, and tailbone pain that used to bother me constantly are almost completely gone. I also feel more energized and inspired to move on a regular basis, and delight in moving in novel and fun ways.
As I continue to learn more about how the human body works & moves, I discover even more tools to heal myself. I’m excited to share these with you so that you can also take your health and wellbeing into your own hands.
What my clients have to say...
"Finding Shannon has given me hope for an active future as a senior. She is a thoughtful practitioner of Restorative Exercise and helps translate Katy Bowman’s work to my body."
"Shannon was supportive and able to meet my body where it was at."
"Shannon worked with me in sessions both on ways to alleviate my immediate discomfort and on techniques to change my alignment and daily activities so that my healing would progress through habit. After my first session with her, I honestly noticed a difference right away when I used the alignment strategies she suggested."
