A Pivotal Point in My Life

My first memories of “touch” began on my 13th birthday, a very pivotal point in a young girl’s life! I came down with the flu! I was so depressed that I couldn’t celebrate my special day. My older sister, Dawn, sat with me and started rubbing my feet. She told me that once I was feeling better, we would have loads of fun. Her sweet touch and kind words made me feel better, and since then I realized the deep connection of human touch and how it can change the way you feel.

It always seemed that at some point during family gatherings I would end up rubbing somebody’s shoulders. I would create “massage trains” where we would sit one in front of the other and rub each other’s shoulders. One of my favorite pictures is of family and friends rubbing each other’s back and shoulders and currently hangs in my session room.

I Decided to Change My Life

In 1995, as I was sitting in my windowless cubicle, I was thinking to myself “is this all there is for me?” Literally at that moment, (remember there are no coincidences) a friend called me and invited me to an open house at a massage school in Culver City. I signed up that night and have never looked back. I continued to work at that job for the next two years until I married my soulmate in 1997. I can’t believe that was almost 20 years ago! My how time flies, and yes I continue to have fun!

Education

I am a graduate of the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing in Los Angeles, California. I also hold certificates in many different modalities and workshops completed at IBSP, The Massage School of Santa Monica, The Massage Center and Thai Massage from the Thai Massage at the Institute of Thai Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Most recently I received my certification in Reflexology through The American Academy of Reflexology. And in September of 2017, I passed my National Board Reflexology Exam. Once I complete my 90 documented sessions I will receive my certification as a National Board Certified Reflexologist. Click here to see how you can help.

I have been in private practice since 1997, and that is where I hold my commitment to, my private clients. I have also held several jobs at various chiropractic offices and spas. I am an educator at a local massage school and teach specialty massage classes in Business Practice, Aromatherapy, Chiropractic Massage and Thai Massage. I have a strong background in chiropractic, deep tissue, Swedish, Thai and therapeutic massage and love to use the therapeutic values of aromatherapy and hot stones to enhance my massage sessions. However, my specialty is to design a massage session that is specific to your needs at that time, always making your main concerns a priority.

Something Personal About Me

I have been very happily married to the man of my dreams, Tom, for 20 years this year! We have a wonderful life together doing all the things we love to do; hanging out at home in our back yard with our doggies and chickens, hiking together, cooking together, wine tasting together, traveling together.. well you get the idea, we like to be together! Tom has always been and continues to be so very supportive of everything that I do. Sometimes with raised eyebrows, but always behind me 100%!!! I am a happy girl when I am with my family and friends, dancing, hiking or doing yoga and of course when I am able to share my love and passion of massage and reflexology to others.
