Andi Gherard, LMT
Andi first discovered a passion for bodywork as an industrial bread baker. Watching their coworkers develop long term and short term injuries fueled their desire to heal. Already trained and practicing as a sexual assault and domestic violence advocate, they felt compelled to study the healing properties of the human body and spirit. Andi attended massage school at East West Healing Arts College in Portland, Or. There they studied deep tissue, Tui Na, acupressure meridian work, and Gua Sha. Their love of braiding clinical western science with TCM 5 element work is displayed in their bodywork. Outside of massage, Andi is found cooking as a creative outlet and tending to their growing collection of plants.
