Medical Massage (MMP)
Seattle Massage School. Graduated 1995.
“Body work has taught me how important it is to care for ourselves. Stretching, water, movement, rest and relaxation are all important. Our bodies teach us so much about our needs if we listen. I learned from working with animals that self-care is essential to life energies. Life is full of daily challenges; fun, fears, faults, and faith. We are part of life’s energy forces here on earth and I try hard to be respectful of all energy forces, no matter how small.”

“I worked on my grandmother’s frozen shoulder. She was 96 at the time. I did a variety of techniques to reduce her pain & increase her range-of-motion. Slowly her pain lessened and her ROM increased. She lived to be 104 and I know the body work she received over 20 years helped her to be more active & live with less pain."
WHAT MAKES YOUR MASSAGES UNIQUE?
“I listen to what your voice tells me but I also listen to what your body tells me. My bodywork interest started with my horse. She had fears and anxiety. I learned to quiet her fears and she learned to calm down and trust me. I learned to watch her body & breath. She spoke without words and I work intuitively from that foundation. Animals are great teachers and so are people.”
