Welcome! 

I am a graduate of fitness pioneer Bonnie Prudden's  School of Myotherapy and Exercise Therapy in continuous private practice since 1998.  Not too many people knew of this technique so I cross trained in Massage Therapy at The Desert Institute of Massage Therapy and Licensed in 2004.  i also am trained in LaStone hot and cold stone massage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and am just starting to learn about SMRT (Spontaneous Muscle release technique), a very effective non-invasive deep tissue modality. My goal is to teach people how to control their pain so they may live happy and pain free lives.  

  I am a Former EMT and medical and chiropractic assistant, spinal rehabilitation technician.  I love to help people, help themselves.

Sacred Lomi - Hawaiian Temple Bodywork Seminar

This 3 day workshop both Greg and I took 9/14 was incredible. It is a fluid, forearm massage that is both relaxing yet addresses pain issues on every level. We do full sessions and as part of our custom massage.
