Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner

My education included Swedish Massage along with Certification in Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy. I also had classes in Reflexology, Thai Massage and Sports Massage. Shortly after graduating from massage school, I became certified in Reiki 1 and then Reiki 2. I'm able to trace my Reiki lineage back to Sensei Takata, Sensei Hayashi, and Sensei Usui. I was employed at Jessica's Skin and Body Apothecary for almost four years. There, I was able to learn Aromatherapy, Hot Stone Massage, Thai Poultice Massage and other luxurious Spa Treatments. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the states of Washington and Michigan. I am a member in good standing of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
