Andrew believes that personal healing begins with getting back in touch with our bodies. Through loving touch, we can heal and grow emotionally and spiritually, as well as physically. Andrew's body work practice creates a space for clients to work on personal healing at their own pace. Sessions may focus on one of the modalities listed above or may blend several approaches, depending on individual client needs, goals and expectations.

Andrew's massage and bodywork practice is influenced by his experiences with body-mind psychotherapy (Hakomi), regular Qigong practice, ongoing study of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Tui Na massage, workshops of the Body Electric School, extensive training in shamanic healing, and a professional background in public health. Sessions are available in Chicago near Irving Park Road and Lake Shore Drive for 90 minutes or 2 hours.
