THE APPROACH MATTERS

Kicki's interest in a natural approach to healing the body started at a very young age, while being a gymnast on the Swedish National Team in Rhythmic Sports Gymnastics. The intense training led to various injuries with chronic pain as a result. She has ever since studied and practiced natural healing methods that would avoid surgery.

LIFELONG DEDICATION

After Kicki had finished her studies to become a massage therapist in California, she worked on a team with physical therapists in Santa Monica. Later, she continued to explore and learn about the body/ mind/spirit through Feldenkreis, Alexander Technique, and voice work while in acting school in NYC.

In her free time she loves to dance, hike, and work out; especially in the Pilates or Bikram yoga studio. Learning about our existence as spiritual beings, neuroscience, and medical science, is an addiction. Taking a jog in the sun or the occasional rain is one of her favorite things to do. Helping homeless animals finding a home and keeping plants alive, keep her spirits high.
