Faye has lived around Riverton all her life. She was raised on a farm in Paradise Valley, graduated from Shoshoni High School, and obtained an AS from Northwest Community College.

After college she went to work for her dad on the farm, until she married Mike Hill in 1984, then helped Mike’s Dad farm until 1993.

Mike and Faye’s first son was born in 1990. He came into the world early and dramatically. Because of the response form the community, and the care she was given by the health care personnel, she decided to become an EMT. This was so she could give back what she had received.

Faye was an EMT for 19 years, nine of which were as the Supervisor for Riverton and four rural areas. After 19 years she decided she had given enough of herself and her family to EMS. A change was needed. She liked helping people when they were hurting physically and began a search for a career that would fill that need.

Quantum Touch Therapy is an energy based modality that caught her attention first but she knew that would not be enough to live on. If she put Quantum Touch and massage therapy together, that might be a good combination. Faye was trained in Medical massage, started working at Main Street Chiropractic with Dr. Jason Howard in 2007. While working there she added Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, which is based on the rhythm of the cerebral spinal fluid. This works on a level to support healthful changes in all the body systems. Some of the most important are the Nervous, Circulatory, and Musculoskeletal systems. It also helps with trauma of all kinds and is suitable for all ages. This combination turned out to be very helpful for the clients.

Dr. Mary Jo Jeffres was one of Faye’s clients and one day Dr. Jeffres asked Faye if her style of work would be a good fit with Dr. Jeffres business. Not only could Faye help with physical pain, but there she could help people with stress, anxiety, emotional and depression problems. There are a multitude of ways Biodynamic Craniosacral, Quantum Touch and Massage Therapy can help people return to a healthy life.
