Integrative Massage for Whole Body Wellness

I have been studying and practicing Therapeutic Massage since 2003; first building confidence and trust in my hands,
heart, and intuition at The School of Healing Arts in San Diego, then further developing my clinical and anatomical
knowledge here in NY, through the guidance of my inspiring teachers at the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca. I
have had the amazing opportunity to obtain intensive/advanced training in Zen Touch Shiatsu with its founder Seymour Koblin, and deeper work of the Head, Neck and Jaw with Tammi Sweet, an Anatomy and Physiology Goddess and co-founder of Heartstone Herbal School. I spent several years working as a Massage Therapist and Shift Supervisor for a 17 room Massage Clinic in San Diego, CA while volunteering in a Chiropractic office, as well as a Pain and Allergy Relief Clinic & Acupuncture office, to enhance my education.

In 2007 I returned to New York to be closer to family, and soon thereafter supported both parents through their end of
life transitions. My 3 year journey with them shed new light on the way I viewed Massage Therapy -- its positive
influences on the bodymind/mindbody connection -- and prompted me to move forward in obtaining my NY License. I
have been serving the Rochester community since 2012 and have since been certified in Advanced Prenatal Massage,
and as a Hospice-Second Degree Reiki/Hemi-Sync Therapist. I am currently working toward certification as a
Myoskeletal Alignment Practitioner through Erik Dalton’s Freedom from Pain Institute. 


Despite all of the education and training that are so important in this field, what I am most proud of, and excited to share, is the gift of presence; holding a space where we work together in creating sacred moments of relaxation and peace.

Philosophy on Wellness:

Start where you are and I will meet you there. Be who you are, and set realistic goals that resonate with your spirit. Do
something for yourself every day, something you love that lights a spark, there you will find wellness. I set an intention
before each massage session, honor each unique body-mind, and integrate all modalities in that respect, to create a
space in your day that holds opportunity for healing.
