Having grown up in Brentwood, I moved to
southern California as soon as possible as a young adult. While
there I began to participate in cardio kickboxing for my health. I
would spend up to 2 hours a day, 5 days a week in the gym. As I was
seeing the âhealthyâ results I desired, my body was dramatically
wearing down. I begin to have trouble getting out of bed; sitting
and driving to work was becoming painful. And yet I still continued
to go. I consulted my general physician who prescribed an
anti-inflammatory and pain pill then sent me on my way. Medication
was not my first choice, but I believed there were no other
After 23 years in southern California, I moved home and finally made the choice to take care of myself. With the help of a local chiropractor my rehabilitation began. However, it was when I met a second chiropractor, Dr. Hubbard, that I began to really feel my body heal. During the initial consultation he suggested I include massage in my plan. I didnât understand why having a ârelaxing massageâ would help, but how could I say no? Dr. H had massage therapists in the office that partnered with him to help facilitate the healing process. So it began, I would see a massage therapist and get adjusted. Within a few months I was getting out of bed without hesitation and could drive my car for extended periods of time - pain free. Without both of them working on my behalf, I am sure that I would have continued to take unwanted medications to control my pain and discomfort.
Ultimately, this journey of self-care and healing led me to want to give back what was given to me: an awareness of my body with the ability to keep it healthy and balanced. If one person regains confidence in their bodyâs strength to live a life that is well balanced and cared for, and have a renewed sense of health, my goal will be accomplished. It is my wish to provide a compassionate and therapeutic massage to as many people as possible and help them get back what they thought was lost.
As a graduate of the National Holistic Institute, a nationally accredited massage therapy school, I completed 900 hours of a comprehensive massage therapy training program including anatomy, physiology, pathology and multiple modalities of hands-on bodywork training.
