"I am often asked about my connection to geckos, and why 'Gecko Massage'?? The gecko is one of those incredible creatures who have the ability to regenerate, to regrow their tail if it is severed. I equate that regenerative ability with our own innate healing capabilities. We are more capable and powerful than often we know! Our bodies are always striving for balance and equilibrium, and the art and science of massage therapy is one tool for assisting us in this quest. Another comparison with the lovely gecko is that, as a chameleon, this lizard is wonderfully adaptable. Our bodies, too, have an incredible adaptability to new stresses and environments. Unfortunately at times these adaptations and compensations lead to dysfunction, which is where massage therapy comes in!"
