I left a job I didn't like in 1997 and opened my practice in 1998. I fell in love with how I felt after a yoga class and trained to teach it in 2004 and 2005. Then came Reiki where I experienced the profound relaxation it could add and eventually made my way to Glastonbury, England, where I became a Reiki Master. Of all the education I have had and all the places I have been, there is no way I could choose just one as my favorite. They are all like my children so I love them all equally. And I love blending my skills to give you the best massage experience.

Continuing Education

Over the years I have made continuing education a priority. I always look for more ways to help you feel better. My studies have taken me from Atlanta to San Francisco, Denver, Phoenix, and Albuquerque, and from Greece to England and Switzerland. I have had training in hot stones, Thai massage, breast care and mastectomy massage, medical cupping, craniosacral, Rossiter coaching and more. Rather than list the dozens of classes I have taken, let's just meet and make a plan just for you while I search for the tools in my toolbox that can help you the most!

Yoga

Dynamic Gentle Yoga

Yoga is something everyone can do--if you can sit in a chair and breathe! I have trained in Hawaii, Peru, Spain, and around the eastern states. I went to Florida for Dynamic Gentle Yoga Teacher training and now all my classes are geared toward feeling instead of thinking, which means not having goals but just enjoying the experience and the journey.

Wellness

Holy Fire Reiki Master

I have taken quite a few Reiki courses over the years including Usui Levels 1 and 2, Rainbow Reiki, and then was so thrilled to go to Glastonbury, England, and complete my Master level with William Lee Rand. The profound relaxation that Reiki brings allows the body to relax so that healing can occur on a deeper level.
