I stand for healthcare that cares for your health. Instead of chasing symptoms we address the totality of your being - body, mind and spirit as one. 

I believe healthcare can be a life affirming path of discovery and growth. Healthcare can leave us feeling more connected and whole and even point us to our purpose.

I’m here to make sure you receive the precise and personalized care you deserve with sensitivity, passion and presence.

My goal is to help you rise above health challenges feeling more integrated and vital. This way you can live more fully and engage your absolute potential.

Instead of a top down approach to healthcare, your body calls the shots. You find balance on your own terms. You grow in awareness and learn how to harness the power of your consciousness.

This way you can optimize your performance and live your best life.

My story 

Prior to being introduced to Reiki in 2009 I literally felt crippled in my body. I suffered from chronic pain tied into scoliosis - a severe curve in my spine. I experienced massive anxiety and depression that was debilitating. Unresolved abuse and trauma was keeping me stuck and holding me back in my body, mind and life. 

My first experience of Reiki offered me a sense of support and connection I had previously not known. I was able to let down my guard. I felt held and supported. Cycles of pain, shame and hate began to unravel. My body and my life began to open. 

Shortly thereafter I began an extensive training in Reiki & Meditation. 

During my years of Reiki & Meditation training in Seattle I began to receive BodyTalk sessions. It was only my second BodyTalk session where my spine began to unwind. I walked out of the office nearly an inch taller! A new organizational intelligence began to assert itself in my body. It was as if I was coming back to my senses and feeling at home inside myself. I was on a healing path!

India called ...

Deepening my Meditation practice seemed the next logical step. I immersed myself in an 8 month residential meditation program in Pune, India. After several months of committed daily practice I was soon trained to facilitate meditation and teach others to do the same.

Being equipped with Reiki and Meditation gave me the skill, awareness and courage to face my pain and access greater inner resources for healing.

When I returned to the United States I began teaching Reiki and Meditation while studying and practicing BodyTalk and Yoga. I began practicing BodyTalk and teaching Yoga professionally shortly thereafter.

With BodyTalk my focus is twofold. I help clients address chronic and acute health issues including autoimmune disease, anxiety, depression and trauma. I also work closely with entrepreneurs to support purpose driven leadership. 

In 2013, upon moving to San Francisco, I founded The Touch Revolution - A Traditional Usui Reiki School rooted in yogic philosophy & meditation. I teach students to integrate these teachings with modern science and understandings of how trauma impacts the brain, body & nervous system. I provide education and mentorship to healthcare professional, yoga instructors and lay people seeking greater resources in trauma healing. 

I now write and present on Trauma-Informed Care for The Breathe Network. The Breath Network is a national organization that helps survivors of sexual abuse and trauma find holistic healthcare professionals equipped to support their unique needs. 

Our pain just might be pointing us to our purpose. I'm here to help.

Professional bio

Greg practices BodyTalk, a comprehensive & personalized healthcare system. We experience health when all parts of the body are functioning as a whole. Stress and trauma break down communication resulting in disease. BodyTalk identifies these breakdowns and then restores communication. This reboots the body's natural ability to heal. Instead of treating symptoms BodyTalk addresses the unique causative factors that rest beneath the surface of our health concerns. This way we receive the precise care needed to access inner resources for safe and sustainable healing. 

Greg is also the founder of The Touch Revolution - A Traditional Usui Reiki School rooted in yogic philosophy & meditation integrated in modern science and understandings of how trauma impacts the brain, body & nervous system.

Greg teaches Yoga & Meditation 1:1 and offers public classes, workshops & retreats. He draws from over 15 years experience sharing a unique and instinctual synthesis of the very practices that have helped him heal from trauma, chronic pain, depression and scoliosis.
