@ In Forma Pilates Instructor
Terra has 34 years of training and experience working with clients to strengthen bodies, relieve pain, transform stress, and improve their overall quality of health.
Her unique combination of expertise includes Rehabilitation Pilates, Therapeutic Massage, Homeopathy, medical intuition, rehab massage therapy, and nutrition.
Terra began training in Therapeutic/ Rehabilitation focused massage after she discovered that her six-year-old, Ian, was 1.5 years behind in his bone growth. The doctors had no explanations or solutions for this. As any concerned mother would, Terra wanted answers. She began to question if his diet, or rather, the chemicals and preservatives found in certain foods, had a negative impact on Ian’s growth. She eliminated milk, refined sugars, preservatives, and food dyes from his diet. Within 6 months, Ian’s growth caught up and surpassed his age group.
With further study in nutrition and supplementation, Terra found that Ian wasn’t alone in how certain food, and the chemicals in it, can interfere with physical and emotional health. This was the beginning of what has turned into a very fruitful and rewarding career. Terra then began training in rehab massage training in 1981, Homeopathy in 1991, and Pilates in 1995.
Massage helped her to restore health to injuries. Homeopathy showed how each individual heals differently according to his/her specific chemistry and genetics. Pilates demonstrated that when the body moves as it is meant to, chronic pain is relieved and unhealthy movement patterns can be reversed. She was also born with a strong intuitive gift that has aided and enhanced every aspect of her work.
Terra’s success rate for restoring health in clients has consistently been in the 90th percentile and above. One client has even referred 18 new clients to Terra!
