Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Certification in therapeutic Cupping
I took a 3 day course going over the basics of cupping modalities and their uses. This course shifted my view of massage and has given me a valuable tool that I use on nearly a daily basis to help my patients get out of pain.
Beginner Reflexology Course Certification
This 2 day course gave me an initial understanding of reflexology and how important the feet are to the relaxation and therapeutic massage.
Hot Stone Certification
This online course gave me a deeper understanding of contraindications and uses of hot stone massage. I use stones in nearly every massage now - they are so amazing for relaxation and loosening muscles so I can get deeper without damage.
Table Top Thai Massage Course
This 2 day course taught me many stretches and I appreciated the information about how massage is integrated into the Thai culture and appreciated on a level that we don't understand.

Valerie always does a great job. I had some areas that were really tight and she did a wonderful job at working them out. I immediately felt better, and even more so the next day.
