Be Free of Aches, Pains, and Stress and Be Healthy Again!
My practice is all about your better health. Helping you live a healthier life, improving the quality of your life, and relieving you of the aches and pains you may be experiencing. My philosophy is massage is not the only way to achieve better health; it's part of a balanced program of massage, healthy diet, and exercise. Massage is preventive maintenance for your body just as oil changes are preventive maintenance for your car or truck. The difference is if you neglect your car or truck and it can''t be fixed, you go out and buy another one. But if you neglect your body and IT breaks down, where are you going to live? You can't buy another body! Regular massage will reap many benefits such as better circulation, removal of toxins, expansion of breath, teaching how to relax, elimination of stress, and many more. When you stay with regular massage, every week or two weeks, the benefits will pay off for years to come. I'm also a Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach. I work with you to help you make smarter dietary choices.
Bio
I received my BA in Psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder with the intention of becoming a Psychologist. But life happens and I ended up starting my own lamp manufacturing business. Two aspects of this business stood out for me; working with my hands and working with numbers. I needed to learn how to track the numbers of my business so I took a crash course in Accounting and with the help of my father who had a degree in Accounting I was able to set up my books. After 3 1/2 years when the economy turned I liquidated my business and moved to Arizona. I wasn't sure what I was going to do and if I was going to continue with Accounting I needed many more courses so I continued to enroll in more courses. I worked in various and sundry jobs until I had enough Accounting education to get a paying job; I had done some volunteer work in bookkeeping so with two years of experience under my belt I went out and got a paying job. For some reason this professioin didn't seem to work out as I went through 5 jobs in 3 1/2 years through no fault of my own; these businesses were poorly run and for some reason my job was always deleted. I had taken an introductory course in massage many years earlier and I ran into an acquaintence at a grocery store and he was with his girlfriend who had enrolled in massage school and they both encouraged me to sign up so I did! The rest is history. I've work with chiropractors, health clubs, and upscale resorts along with my private practice which I started in 1989 after graduating.
