I am a California Certified Massage Therapist (#75666). I am trained in many types of massage, making my work unique and effective. My training includes Pregnancy, Hot Stone, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Lomi Lomi.
Acupressure Facelift, Indian Scalp Massage, Cupping and Trigger Point Therapy may be less known, but I have found so much value in these. I love incorporating them into my normal massage practice, though it's worth mentioning that they are wonderful as a massage of their own!
I have been working in healthcare since an internship in high school got me on my way, and recently added Massage Therapy to my resume.
I absolutely love massage. I love owning my own business. I love serving people who find value in what I do. I love meeting all sorts of people through my work. I love the look people have when they walk out of my massage therapy room, eyes droopy and relaxed, mumbling a thank you and a hug while they shuffle off to bed. I love getting feedback from clients telling me that they had the best night of sleep after receiving my massage.
I believe that our bodies are constantly communicating with us. When we are in pain, or have an ache or tension, our bodies want us to notice and address it.
This may mean taking a walk. Deep breathing. Drinking more water. Chiropractic. A drink with friends. Massage. Or a combination of all of the above!
I believe that Massage Therapy is a fantastic way to care for ourselves. I have found that it can have the biggest impact when used hand in hand with other self-care techniques.
