Born and raised in the Pacific NW, I received my first massage when I was still in middle school. Since then massage stayed a constant in my life, if not receiving massage than giving it. During my life I have had the privilege of receiving various styles of massage from different cultural backgrounds and each one has taught me something new. After finishing my Bachelor's degree I moved to South Korea where I worked for a number of years as an ESL teacher. During that time there were many happy, sad, and stressful moments. By the time I left I was both physically and emotionally drained. The job I had during most of my time there enabled me to meet many amazing colleagues and students alike but I was very unsatisfied. It had no feel of progress or growth - like there was not worthwhile change or effect. This feeling led me back to massage. I wanted to do something that can help others no matter if you see them for 30 minutes once or 2 hours every other week. Another therapist I know told me once that if you see a client once you don't just effect that one person but every person they come into contact with afterwards. So, I came back to Portland, OR where I attended East West College of the Healing Arts which provided me with an 800-hour program where I learned all about the human body and what massage can do for it. "Massage is my way of giving back. Of doing my best to be a positive influence on those around me and I hope I can continue to do so for many years to come."

Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy

25 hours “feet” on continuing education class in techniques and a bit of history related to Ashiatsu massage. Ashiatsu is a form of massage where the therapist uses bars attached to the ceiling for balance while using their feet to perform various techniques and massage strokes. By using feet instead of hands the therapist is able to achieve a deep, compressive effect for each client.
