Where did you study? Oregon School of Massage
When did you graduate? September 2014
What do you like most about massage? I absolutely love massage! I am constantly fascinated by the body and how healing takes place within it. I am always learning new techniques to evolve as a therapist. What is most rewarding is making a difference for a client; helping them find relaxation or addressing an area of stress or tension and working it out. I am very present in that moment for them and feel it makes a huge difference in their massage experience.
What are your favorite modalities / specialties? Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Craniosacral and Relaxation.
Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective? Each modality has it’s place and can be very effective. I find it best to start out slow and then get deeper into tissues and work out adhesions from there. I often combine different modalities to get the best results.
Anything special you'd like to share about yourself? I grew up in Oregon, then lived in California and moved back here to the Portland area about six years ago. I am so happy to be home. I love animals and the outdoors. I have two beautiful daughters that bring such joy to my life! I am extremely grateful.
