Beyond Bodywork

I have been massaging people since 3rd grade, but since they don't let you work that young, I had to wait until I was 18 to go to massage school. That didn't stop me from learning and practicing Reiki when I was 15, though, so I started massage school with a fairly solid understanding of energy.

I have been massaging people since 3rd grade, but since they don't let you work that young, I had to wait until I was 18 to go to massage school. That didn't stop me from learning and practicing Reiki when I was 15, though, so I started massage school with a fairly solid understanding of energy. I spent 18 months at National Holistic Institute, and graduated with a Professional Bodyworker and Health Educator certificate with honors in 2001. I started in sports massage - working at a gym, joining the sports massage team at the US Open Track and Feild Championships at Stanford University, and being the official sports massage therapist for the Cesar Gracie Fight Team out of Concord, CA. Throughout this practice, I began to specialize in Injury Rehab and Myofascial Release. I started teaching Kinesiology at ASIS Massage School in 2010 and later went on to teach Anatomy and Physiology, Injury Rehab, Neuromuscular Techniques, Chair Massage, and a handful of other classes. I am proficient in Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, Anatomy Trains, Resisitance and Release, Sports Massage, Injury Rehab, Myofascial Release, Shiatsu, Thai, and Reiki. I am transitioning into focusing on releasing the deeper ''issues in our tissues'' by doing a combination of Myofascial-Energetic-Emotional Release, aka "meta-massage" or "beyond bodywork".
