After graduating from Western Career College in 2008, I have extensive knowledge of and practice in diverse massage therapies, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point, Pre-natal, Hot Stone, and Reflexology. My unique approach integrates the health and well-being benefits that Deep Tissue, Sports massage and Trigger Point therapy offer.
For me, working as a massage therapist was the next step in what has been a story of physical healing. I learned the benefits of massage therapy first-hand while recovering from a car accident in 2005. I suffered critical injuries – from head to toe, in addition to my heart and spirit. Like so many in this country, I had no health insurance, so I took it upon myself to discover alternative options to re-claim my personal health and well-being; part of that journey required self-exploration and self-acceptance, and part of it was inspired to explore natural, non-invasive ways to care for myself as well as others. Eventually, I decided to pursue a career providing direct client care for those suffering with various ailments, such as mental and physical stress, limited range of motion, and chronic pain, and I found my passion in life; through massage therapy, I have found opportunities to continue healing from my car accident, along with a powerful and holistic solution for supporting clients with physical complaints.
Part of the healing process, for me, has not only included overcoming my physical injuries, but also getting back to a place in life where I can celebrate all of life’s possibilities; that’s why I am a big believer in the healing powers of not only massage therapy, but also friendship, good food and drinks, and laughter.
