Hey there!Â Thanks for visting my website.Â Below is a little background on how I came to practice massage therapy.Â
Â Â Â Â I began working in the horticulture industry after high school.Â Being in a greenhouse all day touching and smelling herbs sparked a fascination in medicinal plants and cooking with fresh herbs for health benefits.Â This also led to an interest in alternative therapies.Â When I wasn't working with plants I was reading books on reflexology, yoga and Ayurveda.Â After 9 years of horticulture, landscaping and nursery managing I was eager to dive into an alternative therapy and that avenue was massage. Â
Â Â I earned my massage certification in April 2009.Â My training included Swedish, deep tissue, MyoFascial release, Reiki, reflexology, Lymphatic drainage, Heated stone, and sports massage.Â Since massage school I have found a modality that blends my love of yoga with massage.Â I have completed over 112 hours of Thai yoga massage training at the Lotus Palm School of Thai Yoga Massage.Â In edtion to Thai massage I have also taken continuing ed in pregnancy massage, neck and low back dysfunction, Tibetian reflexology (vita flex), and most recently Structural Integration for the thoracity cavity, lower legs and feet.Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â In my massage practice I've had the pleasure of massaging women and men ranging in age from 92 to 9 years old.Â I have used my own journey with back pain to better understand and treat those experiencing chronic pain. I have shared massage and bodywork with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, and more.Â
Â Â Â Â I feel truly blessed to have found a calling in massage therapy and enjoy every opportunity to share it.Â I encourage you to experience the many benefits of massage therapy and I look forward to helping you incorporate it into your wellness plan!
