Notable Experiences

Chair Massage
I was the second therapist in New Mexico to offer chair massage following my studying with David Palmer, the originator of chair massage. I was interviewed by The Albuquerque Journal regarding chair massage. I was also interviewed by Massage Magazine regarding chair massage.
Thai Massage
I spent several months in Thailand in 1995 to learn Traditional Thai Medical Massage. I studied with several teachers to learn several different approaches to Thai Massage and have been offering this bodywork style to clients since my return to the states.
Spa Director
In 1990 I opened the first day spa in Albuquerque at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Offerings included herbal wraps, salt glows, facial massage/acupressure face lift, clay wraps, seaweed wraps and special foot bath reflexology sessions. I trained all the therapists in the techniques and oversaw the running of the spa.
