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.

He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
Romi (Prague Dotbot) came by, arrived early, was very well prepped (had her own table, scented candles, oils, towels) and had the brightest smile we'd seen in days!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
Thanks Romana, def will hit you up next time round.
