From a young age, Kourtney has been fascinated with the human body and how it functions, an interest that led her to a career in health care, beginning as a respiratory therapist. Working in a hospital, she often treated patients who received massage and reiki/healing touch as part of their care plan. She was amazed to see the physical results of these therapies on her patients—stabilized vital signs, a decreased need for pain meds and sedation, and shorter hospital stays compared to other patients with similar issues. Witnessing these benefits first-hand is what motivated her to become a massage therapist and energy healer.
Also during her time as a respiratory therapist, Kourtney attended many births and saw how many women lacked support while birthing in the hospital. This sparked an interest in birthwork, and she became a doula to help women journey into motherhood with the knowledge and support necessary for a safe and healthy birth and postpartum experience.
Kourtney’s approach to therapeutic bodywork is intuitive and eclectic, integrating energy work and sound healing with modalities such as WATSU® (see below), Swedish massage, connective-tissue work, neuromuscular techniques, Craniosacral Therapy, and stretching. She blends her background in respiratory therapy into her work by guiding her clients through breathing techniques to aid them in feeling more grounded, regulating their nervous systems, and improving circulation throughout the body.
Kourtney finds it essential to develop a trusting and communicative relationship with her clients so that they feel empowered in their own healing and they can work together to develop a plan to address their specific needs. In her pregnancy and postpartum practice, her goal is to not only support women during and after pregnancy, but to also hold space for them to show up as they are in their healing and wellness journeys.
Kourtney grew up in an Air Force family, spending most of her childhood living overseas in Germany and Okinawa, Japan, before moving to Tucson in 1999. In her free time, she enjoys creating beaded and copper-wire-wrapped crystal jewelry and talismans. She also loves coming together with friends and family to cook, laugh, play games, or just have a movie night.
WATSU® (Water Shiatsu) Is a form of aquatic bodywork performed in warm water. The practitioner gently supports the client’s floating body and uses fluid movements, stretches, and acupressure, in sync with the breath, to quiet the autonomic nervous system and encourage deep relaxation. WATSU® can help reduce pain and muscle tension, provide more movement in the body, increase joint mobility, and decrease discomfort during pregnancy.
