BodyTalk Practitioner, Massage Therapist
Welcome to Moondance Healing Therapies. My name is Rosie Smith and my passion is supporting and encouraging people on their journey, as they heal their bodies and their lives. I would be honored to assist you as you work to discover and explore the joy of being in your healthy body.
I grew up in Texas, but finally found my way home when I come to Montana in 1986. I grew up rubbing my Dad’s back and knowing that I wanted to help people experience the joy my Dad seemed to feel when he got his back rubbed. My loving family provided me with a sense of safety and well-being, giving me a healthy foundation to assist you on as you seek the experience of joy and well-being.
I trained as a massage therapist, first as an apprentice with Stephen loane of Montana Institute of Natural Therapies in 1991, where I learned Swedish Massage. Then I was led to Big Sky Somatic Institute in Helena Montana where I learned Traditional Thai Massage, Tui Na (Chinese Massage), Shiatsu, and Acupressure. In addition, I studied the theory of Traditional Chinese medicine, finishing the Oriental Healing Arts Path in 1999. In 2004, I learned Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Massage. I have been using this technique since then and recently returned to certify in this powerful modality.
In 2006 I took the initial training to become a BodyTalk practitioner, and after extensive study and practice, took my exams in 2009 and became a certified practitioner in this amazing healing modality.
My toolbox is well equipped and my heart and hands are ready and willing to assist you in your quest for optimal health.
Call today for more information and to set up an appointment to see how we can work together to bring healing into your life and body.
