I am a graduate of Just For Your Health College of Massage in San Jose. Since receiving my certification in 2001, I have gained a vast amount of experience in the field of massage.
I began my career at a Day Spa, where I utilized my skills by providing soothing relaxation massages as well as deep tissue techniques. I continued to gain experience by working for three different Chiropractic offices. This gave me the opportunity to develop and practice a clinical style of deep tissue, injury recovery, ART and sports massage.
The combination of relaxation and deep tissue massage skills have equipped me with the ability to identify specific muscle tensions and provide overall healing results that last. I continue to further my education in anatomy, physiology and the fundamentals of massage by continuing to take classes to provide you with the best treatment possible. I have a passion for the anatomy and study of kinesiology and muscle tissue. I believe if I understand how muscle works, what causes injury, and how it restores and heals, I can help empower the body to naturally heal through increasing blood flow, lengthening muscle tissue and restoring range of motion through stretches and muscle energy techniques.
Prior to pursuing a career in massage, I spent a few years working for the marketing department of a high tech company. There I learned first hand how challenging and demanding corporate life is, especially in the current economic climate where higher workloads and increasing responsibilities can threaten employee productivity and their sense of well-being. So whether you are in corporate America, an amateur athlete, a marathon runner, or just undergo stress in your daily life my work will be a benefit to you. My goal is to help individuals heal from symptoms of stress and reach optimal wellness in all areas of their life.
I have a variety of personal interests such as Rock Climbing, Skiing, World Travel, Camping, Cooking and Service Projects with my Church. I believe a well balanced life is a true blessing. hide
