A talent for massage began at the early age of 11 years old when my aunt asked me to rub her neck and shoulders. She would teach me a couple of techniques, and shortly thereafter we would alternate working on one another. Little did I know, these sweet exchanges would turn into a foreshadow of a profession in touch therapy.
In 2001, I attended the esteemed Swedish Institute, College of Massage Therapy and Allied Health Sciences, a 1500 hour hands-on technical training and extensive educational study in massage therapy. I also hold Certifications in Reflexology and Perinatal Massage. In 2014, I completed a two-year certification in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST). BCST is a gentle and deeply restorative form of bodywork that focuses on assisting the body towards its own health. It calms the mind, relaxes the nervous system, giving it a “reboot”, and unburdens the heart.
Now in my 12th year of private practice, I am continuously humbled and honored to be a part of facilitating health and wellbeing for every single person I see.
