I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts in 2012 and started my business in 2013. I specialize in Structural Integration and Tuina, drawing from both the Eastern and Western approach to healing the body from pain and discomfort. I want people to live life optimally, helping their bodies feel better as well as their minds, removing stuck spots in their muscles and thinking patterns. I have struggled with injury, pain, negative self-image, and childhood trauma, and I want to help others find freedom through empowerment and quality massage.
Body work is my passion. I understand pain and discomfort and the frustration of injury. I was in my fourth season as a wild-land fire fighter when I decided I wanted to become a massage therapist. After massage school, I started my business in a Crossfit, Jiu Jitsu, and boxing gym. I joined all of the classes, but ended up doing Crossfit for six years and am a purple belt in Jiu Jitsu, both of which involved healing from the pain of injuries.
In 2022 I completed a Holistic Life Coach and Mind- Body Practitioner course through the Mind-Body-Food Institute, and understand more clearly how the body, mind and emotions are connected. In order to treat on a holistic level, I acknowledge the power of the mind, its connection to the body, emotional holding patterns, and the desire for balance between them all, so we can all live and move optimally.
I love the science of muscles and the brain, tied to the intricacies of our spirit, soul, and mind. We are all a constant shifting puzzle to understand and accept through life. It is a messy, confusing, enlightening, embarrassing, humorous, unexpected, difficult, easy thing, all rolled into one journey. I am honored to help you in any way I can, but especially though high quality massage, life coaching to reach specific goals, and mind-body work to reconnect the two, always moving forward.
