I attended Seattle Massage School, later known As Ashmead College in Seattle, Washington in 1993. I graduated with honors in November of 1994. I became licensed with the State of Washington in December of 1994.
My career of 17 years doing bodywork began with providing therapeutic massage in theoffice of Eastside Chiropractic in Olympia, Washington. Treatment centered around soft tissue injuries due to whiplash, sprains and strains related to sports and work stressors, and chronic conditions such as arthritis, degenerative disc disease and migraines.
Massageworks was born in 1996 when I opened my own private practice in Olympia, WA, sharing my office space with another massage therapist. I continued providing therapeutic massage services for all ages and for a variety of needs including health maintenance, stress reduction, elder and end of life comfort care and relaxation. I enjoyed a thriving practice in Olympia until November of 2013 when I moved to Lompoc for the small town friendly atmosphere, beautiful sunny mild climate, and pristine coastline and rolling hills.
I believe that healing and health is an integrative process that requires a safe, therapeutic and nurturing space for all individuals as they move toward balance and wholeness. I provide that space in the bodywork I do. I honor the place where each person may be when they arrive for a massage. I use a variety of modalities in my bodywork including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Strain Counterstain, Neuromuscular Techniques, Soft Tissue Release, and Hot Stone Therapy. I am proficient at combining focus work to a requested problem area or chronic stuck point within a full body session, always being mindful of the comfort level of my clients. I believe in finesse not force.
I am so excited about my new home and community in the beautiful, sunny central coast area. I look forward to being a part of the Magnolia Massage team of therapists.
