Cameron first discovered alternative healing in Costa Rica and it was there she was introduced to energy work. Through her studies of the energetic realm she was inspired to learn everything she could about the human body.

Attending massage therapy school at Cortiva Institute in Chicago, she specialized in sports therapy and rehabilitation, with a focus on marathon runners. Later she moved into the spa industry, broadening her specialties to trigger point and myofacial release, manual manipulation therapy, infant massage, pre- and post-natal therapy, end-of-life therapy, and work and study with tensor maseter disease.

Cameron broadened her practice further, attending Blue Lotus Thai Healing Studies. Thai therapy allowed Cameron to effectively blend both eastern and western understanding into her bodywork.

With five year's experience Cameron quickly jumped to the top of her field as lead therapist at one of the top spas in Chicago, as well as an experienced and trusted reiki practitioner. 

Cameron's primary goal for her practice is to establish trust with the client and identify root problems, not just symptoms, within the body. 

Photos by Stephanie Jensen   Kiam Marcelo Junio is a licensed massage therapist, holistic healer and interdisciplinary artist. They were born in the Philippines, and have lived in the U.S., Japan, and Spain. Their research and embodied art work center around queering identities, creation myths, Philippine history, herstories, and personal-collective healing through collaborative practices and inner shadow work.    Kiam served seven years in the US Navy as a medical assistant and respiratory therapist. Their experience in oncology, critical care, neonatal, palliative, and emergency military medicine instilled a deep respect for the preciousness of life and the sensitivity of the body.    Kiam's personal healing journey began soon after separating from the military. Before moving to Chicago to pursue a career in art, they studied classical yoga at Mt Madonna Center, founded by the late silent Indian sage Baba Hari Dass. Nestled in the California Redwoods, far from war, Kiam began to unpack their memories and experiences, to shine a light within.    The worlds of holistic healing and interdisciplinary art have collided into a vibrant ecosystem of ideas, practice, teaching, and play. Some of Kiam's ongoing passions include Butoh dance and movement, poetry, aromatherapy, tarot, reiki, past life re-membering, craniosacral balancing, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Kiam's purpose is rooted in helping people come to a deeply felt understanding of their body, mind, and spirit - the total self - by cultivating self-knowlede, self-love, and self-expression.
