My journey began long before Sedona massage. The body’s ability to balance and heal itself mentally and physically has always fascinated me. I worked as a Social Worker for many years focusing on improving a client’s quality of life. After children, I chose a path of health incorporating yoga, self care Ortho-Bionomy therapeutic poses, qigong and fitness intertwining Eastern and Western philosophy’s focusing on a balanced life as we live to the fullest. I have been a certified trainer and yoga instructor since 2003, specializing in posture support, foam roller, functional training, water bodywork, and a holistic nutrition & lifestyle approach. This path provided a natural segway into Linda Olesen Bodywork and Sedona Massage. Using my background of yoga and fitness with a one-on-one approach supporting another in healing and improving health. It also allows me to give my clients tools to work on challenges in their body.
My greatest passion is being a mother to twin girls! I have taught classes at Western College on how we create balance in our lives spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually while incorporating dance, qigong, yoga, chakra awareness meditation and breath-work. As a yoga teacher I found my path into bodywork through Thai Massage. I loved the fitness movement element of the work. I love the Thai culture and the Thai people. I segwayed into a 1000 hour massage program at Mountain Heart school of bodywork. After the massage program I finished as a level 3 Reiki teacher and Ortho-Bionomy associate, a gentle but powerful bodywork. I stand apart from the competition because I am constantly challenging and educating myself and I am one of few registered thai therapist, RTT, in Sedona with extensive training in this area of bodywork.
