My goal is to help you break free of your chronic pain cycle and feel better. I want you to get the relief and solution that body re-patterning and massage/bodywork can offer so you can stay active and live your best life!
I can empathize because we all experience physical pain at some point in life. My own journey began in high school with bodily aches and pains, daily tension headaches and digestive issues. Young and spritely were not the adjectives used to describe my teenage self. These issues continued well into my Cal Berkeley college years. The years rolled by and I obtained a Masters in Acupuncture from the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Tucson. My studies in acupuncture, Chinese Bodywork (Tui-Na) and cupping therapy began the ascent to heal myself using complimentary medicine with the ultimate goal of helping others.
Then, I hit the pause button on my professional course, took time off to get married and raise three children. As they grew older, I reclaimed some of my time and eventually graduated from California Holistic Institute (SLO) in 2018, became a California certified massage therapist and opened up shop. The path that began many years ago in acupuncture school in Arizona and then moving to Idaho, Montana, New Mexico and back to California, finally culminated in me finding my niche! My passion is resolving chronic pain.
As for my own health journey, my chronic pains have shifted; some have resolved and others have surfaced. The key to pain management lies in the variety of of therapies I seek out, doing Pilates and striving for optimal alignment through corrective exercises. I love regular treatments of acupuncture, chiropractic, cupping and bodywork of all types! Not to mention, emotional and psychological issues that the body stores must be addressed.
When I'm not working, you can find me hiking in the Irish Hills, listening to podcasts on business development & self-growth, reading, learning and watching British crime mysteries. Not to mention, I love a lively philosophical debate. Most of all, I plan to age gracefully, stay super active and be globetrotting!
My goal is to help you break free of your chronic pain cycle and feel better. I want you to get the relief and solution that body re-patterning and massage/bodywork can offer. When you feel less pain, you move freer, sleep better and stay active.
You can get back to strolling on the beach, hiking that challenging but gorgeous trail, walking up and down that steep neighborhood hill, gardening and weeding or taking care of your cute and active grandchildren.
I look forward to our partnership. Good health to you!
