San Diego, 2017
Originally from San Francisco, I grew up near the mountains in Oregon, have lived many places across Canada and the States, and settled in the Niagara region in 2010. I’ve been practicing bodywork informally since about 1988, and professionally since 2007. See My story: how I came to Rolfing.
Structural Integration is not massage. But I am also trained in both relaxation massage, using the modalities of my “spa therapy” certification from Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage, and therapeutic massage, using deep-tissue techniques plus standard RMT training from Ontario College of Health and Technology. Read more about my massage styles at wintersbodyworks.com. See also my official pages at RMT Find and the CMTO.
My past training includes a B.A. in Buddhist philosophy (1994), an M.A. in Islamic and Baha’i studies (1997), and a certificate in internet technologies (2003). My volunteer work includes serving on the RMTAO Publications Review Panel. See also my personal project Baha’i Library Online, where my theses and papers are online. See also my CV and qualifications.
I’ve worked at homes for seniors and those with low disabilities, group athletic or cultural events around the city, and in-house treatments. Now I work from home in St. Catharines 3 days/week, and am the staff RMT for The Spiritual Spa in Niagara Falls 2 days/week (see an overview of the Spa). I’m trained in compliance with the Ontario Disability Act.
I also run an independent web-hosting business, which predates my massage career by 10 years. I’m certified in “internet technologies” and sell customized web design and personalized web hosting. For RMTs who want a website or online services, I can offer custom client management / charting software. See WintersWebWorks.com.
