After spending fifteen years working desk jobs in the corporate world, I went to massage school and found my life’s passion in massage therapy. I love to help clients reduce their pain and their stress levels. For me, it is a great feeling when I can help someone feel better by the end of a session. I consider myself to be a facilitator who can provide the space for healing, and a little help, support, and encouragement for your body and mind to come back into balance with itself. I also enjoy the creativity involved with doing massage. Each individual is different, so each massage is different, based on what the client needs in that moment. I really like to take classes and do research to learn additional modalities and techniques that I can use to get the best results possible for each person I work with.
Another part of the holistic healing world that I absolutely love is energy work. About a year after I became licensed to do massage, I discovered Reiki energy healing, and a couple years later I found Quantum-Touch. Both are amazing in their own right, but also work beautifully with massage. I am currently a Reiki Master Practitioner, a Level 1 Karuna Reiki Practitioner, a Certified Starlight Energy® Practitioner, and a Level 1 certified Quantum-Touch Practitioner. Energy work can help to balance you mentally and emotionally, as well as providing relief of pain. I have had and have witnessed profound spiritual experiences both giving and receiving energy work.
On a more personal note, in my spare time I love to read, spend time with my girlfriend, and my family and friends, and pursue all kinds of creative adventures. I enjoy walking (especially in the woods), riding bikes, doing yoga, and lifting weights.
I look forward to getting to know you as well!
