I got your back! -The Muscle Whisperer

  • What attracted you to a career in massage?  I have always had an interest since I was a kid.  I remember during summer break I would go to the library and check out books about massage then coming home to practice on my mom.  My mom would always ask me to massage her arms and it peaked my interest to learn more so I can give her the best massage!

  • Which school did you attend and which certifications do you hold?  I went to Phoenix College to finish my associates degree and when I found out they had a massage program I went for it!  I enrolled in the program excited to learn more about my hobby not imaging a career in massage.  As I worked with people during clinicals I saw how much they appreciated it and felt how good it made me feel to help and felt like a healer! A light bulb turned on that I could actually make a living doing what I love as a caregiver and healer.  I have been in school since 2009 I have earned: A certificate in Therapeutic Massage 2010, Associates of Arts in 2011 and I'm currently in the exercise and wellness program at Arizona State University graduating in 2015.  I will be attending AT Stills in 2016 in the Occupational therapy program.
  • What techniques do you specialize in? What issues or conditions does your work help improve? I specialize in therapeutic massage treating each individual to meet their wellness goals.  I consult and assess what is needed and come up with a plan using different techniques to for treatment.  I treat a lot of people who perform repetitive motion daily which can result in tense muscles, limit range of motion, create pain and tension and sleepless nights.  Therapeutic massage is used to focus on a problem area but also provide all over massage because every muscle in our bodies are connected so not just one area is affected.  I believe regular massage is essential and self-care education is provided in all my sessions.
  • Where are you available to provide massage? (City name(s), business name(s)) I am mobile and service the entire Phoenix and surrounding areas, Kingman, Peach Springs, soon Havasupai hill top, Blue skye massage clinic, and serene life spa. 
  • What hobbies and other interests do you have? When I have spare time I devote it to my 2 daughters.  We plan to travel more and go to more concerts, we love live music!  I also like scrapbooking and karaoke!
