I am a highly skilled California Certified Massage Therapist License number 40283. I use a massage technique that integrates the many modalities I have studied. During a massage my clients learn that I can very quickly palpate areas of tension and utilise gentle techniques that effect a lasting release of tension and pain. I first became interested in massage therapy as a result of massage's role in my personal healing journey. I studied massage with Gerry Latal at the New Life Institute of Massage in Redding, CA. Prior to my coursework at NLIM I took part in a series of courses in Aroma Therapy and massage taught by Gary Young. I studied The KI Method under the tutelage of Dr. Glen King of The King Institute.
