My interest in the body began with my involvement with several sports. I was a competitive swimmer for 13 years and also competed in basketball, water-polo, field hockey and triathlons. I coached athletes for 15 years from little tykes to national level collegiate athletes and gained invaluable experience. With my athletic lifestyle has come many injuries and their rehabilitation using my experience and knowledge.
I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a B.A. in Physical Education. I came to massage as a career with a strong knowledge of anatomy and function of the body and how it relates to movement and is prone to injury.
I am also a Reiki Master and find that the use of energy work is vital to complete the process. Energy work combined with the power of crystals has an amazing effect on the body and the energy systems, or chakras. By scanning and checking for areas of inbalance, I can use crystals and Reiki to bring balance to the body, affecting deep levels of emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Through continual study of bodywork, herbs, crystals, flower essences and energy work, I add to my base of knowledge and strive to make my treatments the best possible for each client.
