I’m happy to become a part of the team here at Peninsula Chiropractic. I use a wide variety of modalities to create a custom session for my clients. I obtained my massage training through a medical based program in Blackfoot, ID in 2010. This program is located inside a small, privately owned, hospital where each student completed an internship to gain hands-on experience in multiple departments. We worked in dialysis, same day surgery, extended care, and my personal favorite, maternity. I gained an appreciation for modern medicine and the medical field we live in today.
After completion of the program, I was asked to return as a teaching assistant, which I did for years. One day, a golden opportunity was offered to me. I accepted a position as the head hands-on Instructor at the College of Massage Therapy in Blackfoot, ID and remained there until 2015. My years of teaching had an enormous impact on my life, personally and professionally. I have deep gratitude for the time I spent at the school and the life lessons it gave me.
In summer of 2015 I spent a month in Rishikesh, India where I completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. We studied anatomy & physiology, philosophy, asana and meditation. I wanted to challenge myself, mentally and emotionally, and I’m glad to say I received exactly what I was asking for. From lost luggage and 104 fever, to roof top monkey attacks, it truly was the trip of a lifetime.
My most recent years in practice were in Jackson Hole, WY at the Body Sage Spa located in the Rusty Parrot Lodge. I had never been interested in working in the spa industry, but I was lucky to find a spa that had a strong wellness focused business model. The menu we offered was intended for healthful purposes rather than esthetics. It was at the spa that I truly fine-tuned my style and gained the fullness in experience I had been looking for. I look forward to working with you along your wellness journey and am excited for this next phase along my ever growing practice and career!

When embarking on the path of healing work over twenty-five years ago, Chandi's education led to a certification in massage therapy at Boulder School of Massage in Boulder, Colorado. Continuing her journey she received a four-year Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement certification in Evanston, Illinois, studying the science of movement and how to move with greater ease and efficiency so that she could help her clientele's level of comfort. She then pursued a B.S. in sustainable Living at Maharishi International University, and training, as well as work as an ayurvedic technician in the Mid-West at the premier ayurvedic health center, The Raj, to further aid in her client's quality of life. She also studied transcendental meditation, TM, while there, spending several years in the largest TM community in the US, Fairfield, IA. Practicing twice daily in a group of several hundred, fulfilled a strong yearning for knowledge, and the truths of life which gave her more foundation and sense of peace, helping to create a one of a kind experience for all.
Chandi has spent time working at massage clinics as well as chiropractic offices seeing patients with a variety of issues including chronic pain or sudden trauma such as work or car accidents.
When not helping people to move better, Chandi is an avid cyclist with the local Sequim Spoke Folks cycling club. She is a lifelong equestrian enthusiast and has a love of the outdoors and nature.
She deeply believes in massage therapy’s restorative powers and profound ability to bridge the connection between one's emotional well being and one's physical discomfort or pain. Massage can reduce and eliminate painful soft tissue conditions. She believes her job as a healer is to help guide her clients back home to their bodies, and let the healing begin.
