My Training & Technique

After graduating from UC Irvine in 2005, I moved to the Big Island of Hawaii seeking knowledge in alternative living and the healing arts.  Living in the Puna jungles, I learned how to farm and steward the land while studying with Reiki Masters. These first experiences of working with energy and the earth ignited a deep knowing and calling from within. My curiosity lead me to the beautiful Bay Area, where I sought out teachers focussed on bridging the energetic with the physical. There I began studying bodywork at both Diamond Light School of Massage and the Berkeley Acupressure Institute. With a well rounded understanding and approach to healing the body, spirit, and mind, I began a private practice in Marin County in 2009.

I’ve continued my education over the last decade through various instructors and modalities, which eventually lead me to finding my current mentor of 5 years, Tom Gordy. Working with interosseous fascia, fluid pressure and his specific theoretics  & comprehensive approach to the body, Tom is teaching me the art of Spinal Unwinding (spinalunwinding.com)… which has greatly benefitted my clients.  I’ve worked hard to surrounded myself with a community of bodyworkers to consult with and learn from. Likewise, my depth of knowledge grows with every client I work with.

My technique has been described as a deep, lymphatic, meridian-flow massage with focus on troubled areas.  The session in relaxing and rejuvenating, thorough and specific to your needs.  My clients tend to feel a lasting affect that helps them to thrive in their daily activities.
