Thai Yoga Massage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
I attended Emerald Coast Massage School in Mary Esther, Florida and graduated as Class Valedictorian in February of 2007. I obtained my Florida Massage Therapy License in March of 2007.
I began my career as a massage therapist working for Gulf Coast Chiropractic and Wellness in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. There I performed therapeutic massages on clients with musculo-skeletal problems such as back and neck pain, rotator cuff injuries, sprains and strains, headaches, sports injuries and stress related conditions. I worked in conjunction with the chiropractor, assisting in maximizing the patient's recovery goals.
I then spent 3 wonderful years working at Adiva's Ageless Aesthetics Spa in Crestview, Florida. I provided a variety of massage services to spa clients to include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Bamboo-Fusion, Prenatal and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
My family and I moved to the beautiful Central Coast of California in September of 2010. For two years I provided massage services at A Natural Knead Massage Therapy at the Vandenberg Air Force Base fitness center, Blush Beauty Boutique and Spa in Buellton, and The Alisal Guest Ranch Spa in Solvang. Since 2007, my dream had been to open a therapeutic massage studio (clinic) and in 2012, Magnolia Massage's doors were finally opened in Lompoc.
In 2013, I received Thai Yoga Therapy training at White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. In 2014, I then received my Thai Yoga Therapy Practitioner Certification.
I began oncology massage therapy training in 2018 through Lighten Up Holistic Health Services with an Oncology Massage intensive course covering cancer pathology, treatment side effects, contraindications/indications, integrative touch therapies and hospice/hospital care. I then furthered my oncology training through a nationally accredited oncology massage course through Greet the Day in 2019, which is which is an approved provider for Society for Oncology Massage. I am currently enrolled in the Infusion Center Massage program at Greet the Day scheduled in October 2019. I currently provide oncology massage and manual lymphatic drainage at Magnolia Massage and will be offering oncology massage on a bi-weekly basis at Mission Hope Cancer Center in Santa Maria, California with both chair massages for patients, as well as hand and foot massages during infusion treatments.
I am very passionate about massage therapy and have seen over the years what amazing benefits it provides for the mind and body of each of my clients. Not only can it relieve muscular and joint pain with one session, over time with regular treatments, it can eliminate chronic pain. Massage also provides deep relaxation and an overall sense of well-being.
Massage is one of the very best things you can do for yourself!
