Hello and thank you so much for reading our team page! I like integrate neuromuscular therapy, ashiatsu, aromatherapy, and reflexology to offer pain management and stress relief massage for chronic and acute conditions. Customizing your massage experience to suit your individual needs is my goal. My passions outside of massage are spending time with family, outdoor activities, Kundalini yoga, music, and learning new languages. I am nearing the completion of a master's degree to become a licensed professional counselor (MA-LPC) so I can integrate talk therapy with bodywork. I will need to make up my internship hours in 2020/2021 (delayed due to COVID closures) so my schedule will be limited to mostly existing clients for now. I will return with more availability for new clients after graduation and truly look forward to welcoming you to my space. I am also a certified Ashiatsu instructor for massage therapists with Deepfeet--the original source in the U.S. for barefoot massage training. You can see my schedule of classes for 2021 at deepfeet.com.
