Meet the Team
This month we catch up with Paige Haber of the Selby Acupuncture Team. Paige is a licensed Massage Therapist and joined the team in July. We are excited to have her on the team!
SA: What do you like most about Selby Acupuncture?
- PH: .Honestly, I came to massage therapy due to a combination of being energetically open and learning to be in my body. While living on the East Coast, I had grown accustomed to the fast-paced lifestyle in which I lived primarily, if not entirely, in my head. When I moved to Minnesota, I was given the gift of space. While practicing yoga and with the support of mentors and colleagues, I began to discover the beauty of listening to the body. This new found perspective and the introduction of yin yoga set the stage for me to take the leap to study shiatsu and therapeutic bodywork.
SA: What do you like most about being a LMT?
- PH: I love discovering and gaining understanding of tension patterns, and brainstorming solutions to support the body to bring it back into balance. With my background in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Traditional Thai Medicine, I explore different pathways when approaching the body. With each session, I get to meet your body where it is that day, not yesterday or three months from now. It’s ever-changing and always interesting.
SA: When you’re not working what brings you joy?
- PH: I love exploring the diverse ecosystems of the Upper Midwest! I enjoy volunteering, especially seed saving in the fall with the local parks district. I enjoy crafting in the kitchen, whether it is making bone broth or whipping up a face cream with friends.
SA: If you could do anything you wanted tomorrow without limitations, what would that be?
- PH: I would move to rural Wisconsin and dedicate my energy to building a small regenerative farm and steward land for at-risk plants.
