Deep Tissue

As I began my career in massage, I realized that more and more people actually required deep tissue deep pressure massages. I always sought simple yet effect ways that would give clients what they needed without me injuring myself in the process. This led me to Barefoot Ashiatsu - an amazing deep tissue massage applied with barefeet. I experienced it for the first time in San Antonio with Jeni Spring at Heeling Sole in San Antonio and fell in love with the feeling! My body didn't guard in the usual spots that a typical hand massage would trigger and not allow previous therapists to go deep enough for the relief I needed. I decided I needed to offer this kind of experience to my clients and have taken Barefoot Basics and Sidelying/Anterior Ashiatsu courses.

Other

I've always been drawn to creating a space for the body to heal itself and massage is a perfect outlet for that to happen. I have taken several massage courses including an orthomassage course from James Waslaski, lymphatic drain massage, TMJ/headache relief, facial sinus massage and unique deep tissue techniques from a master massage therapist, Sergio Meza. I have learned a lot of my technique from great massage mentors that have been in the industry for over 20 years. Ms Naomi, a dear mentor and friend that passed away in 2015, was my massage instructor and guide until the day she passed away. She was a pioneer in massage here in Texas. She helped establish massage and was recognized in the World Massage Festival as a leader in the field. She shared her compassion and wisdom with me over the years and reminded me to be my own kind of therapist and always lead with my heart.

Physical Therapy Technician

I applied physical therapy modalities under the supervision of a Licensed Physical Therapist and Orthopedic Surgeon. Modalities included ultrasound, e-stim, massage, work conditioning program, therapeutic exercises to rehabilitate several injuries mostly low back, rotator cuff repairs and post knee replacement care. My own father suffered a back injury at work that caused him lumbar disc ruptures and unable to work. Seeing how one unexpected injury could affect the entire family and what my father went through (physical and emotional pain) drew me to helping others recuperate from injuries and even more reeducate them so they can prevent further damage or another injury as well so they can maintain a high quality of life as independent and pain free as possible.
