My interest and passion about health and wellness has been a lifelong passion. As a personal journey navigating my own health challenges and chronic pain, I have studied various forms of healing for both mind and body.
Education includes a B.S. from the University of MN, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts as a Master Level Massage Therapist (LMT), & Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT).
I have many techniques to draw from when I am working with a client to help meet their individual needs. My experience and training has allowed me to develop a customized system for assessing, treating, and preventing soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. It is my goal to help my clients find a sense of well-being through relaxation, reducing stress, eliminating chronic pain and increasing flexibility.
Specialty techniques of study and/or certifications include: Massage Cupping, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myoskeletal Therapy, Postural Restoration Integration, Myotherapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Biomechanic Restructuring, Neurokinetic Therapy, and Pre- and Post-Natal Massage.
I am an Arizona native. I completed my education at Arizona School of Massage Therapy over 12 years ago. I am passionate about my work. Clients consistently give me 5 star ratings and and say I am a gifted massage therapist who is detail-oriented. I believe in helping you find the source of your pain, not just what hurts at the moment, giving you a longer lasting feeling of relief. My work history includes work at both medical settings and day spas. This combination of experience has helped me to be able to incorporate both relaxing and therapeutic styles to my personal massage technique. I love assisting clients in their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Some of my favorite techniques include: Medical Massage, Massage Cupping, Sports Massage, Swedish/Relaxation, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue, as well as some Thai and Shiatsu methods.
