Peaceful Relaxation

I was about five years old when I gave my first massage. My "daddy" used to lie on the couch and watch the evening news after dinner. I would stand at his head and give him a scalp massage.He would inevitably doze off which always ended up with me "fixing his hair".  My little red purse was always loaded with pink sponge curlers, bobby pins and various barrettes. I wish I had a photo of the end results, it is one of my earliest and fondest memories of my father.

I was about five years old when I gave my first massage. My "daddy" used to lie on the couch and watch the evening news after dinner. I would stand at his head and give him a scalp massage.He would inevitably doze off which always ended up with me "fixing his hair".  My little red purse was always loaded with pink sponge curlers, bobby pins and various barrettes. I wish I had a photo of the end results, it is one of my earliest and fondest memories of my father. 

From there I went on to be the in high demand at family campouts as I would go behind each person seated around the campfire and massage shoulders and necks. 
When my mom came home from a long day at work I would sit on a footstool and give her a much-deserved foot massage.
My first job in a therapy field was as a physical therapy aide. From there I decided to attend Massage Therapy School in Washington State where I graduated at the top 3% of my class. I got Nationally Certified and opened my own clinic. I gained more insight in my field by serving for three years as a volunteer on the American Massage Therapy Association, Washington State Board as 3rd Vice-President, Education Chair and Convention Coordinator. It was a rewarding and educational experience.
I now own "Massage Therapy". My practice is located in Hamilton, MT. A small town nestled in the beauty of the Bitterroot Valley. 
In my off time I enjoy family and friends, hiking, fishing and hunting with my husband, Michael. I make handmade books: journals, address, cookbooks to name a few. I enjoy pyrography and sketching and my most recent passion is owning and training two miniature horses. I have a wonderful dog, Molly and a reclusive cat, Sammantha.

American Massage Therapy Association, Executive Board Member

I so enjoyed serving for three years as a volunteer on the American Massage Therapy Association Executive Board, Washington State Chapter, as 3rd Vice-President, Education Chair and Convention Coordinator. It was a rewarding and educational experience. I attended the National Convention of the American Massage Therapy Association for advanced training in the field of massage therapy, held in Chicago, Illinois. I also had the privilege of attending the National Education Conference of the American Massage Therapy Association for advanced training in the field of massage therapy, held in Maui, Hawaii. Along with meeting many wonderful, skilled and talented bodyworkers, I furthered my training in the following: * Beyond Pain: Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist techniques * The Muscular & Structural Relationship of TMJ Pain * Advanced Techniques for the Trunk and Lower Extremities * Fascial Kinetics for Thoracic and Cervical. Independent of the AMTA I took an advanced course with Harborview Medical Center Departments of Occupational & Physical Therapy and University of Washington Department of Orthopedics: * Management of Flexor & Extensor Tendon Injuries. **Recently I completed: *Chronic Pain Syndromes: Current Concepts and Treatment Strategies

I enjoyed the whole experience

Not knowing what to expect the first session, I couldn't relax like I should have. This session was much better, felt more relaxed and enjoyed the experience. Looking forward to session #3.

Diana is the best masseuse I have ever had. She is sensitive and strong (all at the same time). The environment she creates is peaceful. Since going to Diana my body has felt so much better. I highly recommend her. If you are at all nervous about massage she will convince you that you are safe in her hands and you will never be embarrassed.

I liked the fact that she found the tight muscles and worked them out, very relaxing atmosphere, great job! Thanks
