Everyday is a Second Chance to create a new direction
no matter what you are facing. Never Give Up
Clients can be overwhelmed with their health issues. I have found that my first contact with a client begins with listening. So many clients complain that their health care providers don't do that basic thing. Each client is unique. I learn about them through being curious about their lives in my effort to understand their sources of stress and pain. Once I gain that information, I can craft a bodywork session to support their specific needs. These actions can include swedish massage, deeper massage to access a block, and stretches. Thai massage which looks at a client from a holistic perspective. Give me a call and we can discuss your specific situation and how I can support your healing process.

Bio
It started with a need to relieve stress. Back in 1995 I was aimless in life, settling for a regular job in a regular company. Someone recognized my high stress level and recommended I get a massage, take a Tai Chi class and do some yoga. I sought a Tai Chi class, which was being held in a massage school. I started taking classes there and now, 22 years later, have changed my life. No more work stress. I had wanted to be in the healthcare field yet the Western model of care didn't make sense to me. Once I found Eastern modalities, I realized I could be of service through stress reduction and prevention. It has been an extremely rewarding calling for me. Little did I know that I could be of service through therapeutic touch. I have been honored to work with clients from simple stress-related neck and shoulder issues to working with clients at many stages of cancer, HIV, diabetes, fibromyalgia, migraines, and injuries.
