Only after obtaining bachelor's and master's degrees in education, and after teaching in the public school system for over a decade, did I find my way into practicing the art and science of massage therapy.
After moving to Manchester, New Hampshire, in 2014, I enrolled in The North Eastern Institute of Whole Health and completed over 750 hours of training in both western and eastern massage therapy theories and modalities. Upon graduating, I studied with the founder of Structural Energetic Therapy, and received certificates in both Cranial/Structural Core Distorion Releases & Cranial/Structural Frontal/Occipital Decompressions.
More than a bodyworker, I am also a Level III Reiki Master in the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage, as well as a Certified Essence Healer.
It is my belief that we are more than an assemblage of bone and muscle tissues, and that we achieve optimal health when we are treated and replenished in a whole and complete fashion.
