“I love being able to make a positive difference in other people's lives in some meaningful way, and work best in environments which promote empathy, harmony, and wellness. My six years of bodywork experience have enabled me to sharpen and fine tune my ability to connect and communicate with clients to determine and provide the best therapeutic care possible.”

“I once had a client with a torn rotator cuff, and having experienced this injury myself, determined that the best therapeutic massage technique would be soft tissue manipulation and range of motion within my client's pain threshold. Within a little over a month, we began to see major improvement and my client's full range of motion was restored. It felt very fulfilling to help facilitate his recovery process from such a painful injury.”
