Hi, I’M RILEY MATTHEWS: LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST (ma77806), PERMACULTURIST, & STUDENT @ National Academy of Sports Medicine.
I offer three healing arts services to the community:
It was my own healing journey that brought me to work within these fields. –As a young person, I experienced quite a lot of trauma, and as a result, my nervous system was pretty fried.
Basically, I lived in a constant state of fight of flight. I was in survival mode 24-7.
Consequently, my entire adult life has been focused on rewiring my nervous system and brain– getting my body and mind back to a place of balance and homeostasis.
I have managed to do that by having a consistent practice of meditation, breathwork, movement and bodywork, and by working closely with Nature.
Having walked a healing path–and continuing to walk a healing path–I am uniquely suited to help others navigate their own healing journey.
Being Trauma Informed, I welcome and hold space for the emotional release that sometimes occurs during massage and somatic movement sessions. –See links above for a breakdown of the services I provide.
