Specializing in Clinical Massage Therapy and spa treatments

My goal is to ignite a healing process, whether from injury, stress, repetitive pain, or discomfort and get you back to doing what you do best.

Education and Work Experience
I am a licensed, insured Clinical Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner with almost a decade of experience.    I was trained in Clinical Massage at The Soma Institute for Clinical Massage Therapy in Chicago, IL.  While in school at Soma, I met my Reiki Master Teacher, and was attuned in 2007.  My second level attunement was a year later.
I have worked at a variety of award-winning spas and massage establishments, most recently, Kabuki Springs & Spa in San Francisco, as well as Mill Valley Massage in San Rafael, CA and Spa Space in Chicago, IL.  

Spa Treatments
In my years of experience in different settings, I have learned many specialty treatments along the way, including body scrubs and wraps, Abhyanga and Shirodara (an ancient Ayurvedic treatment), Lulur (an ancient traditional wedding treatment in Java), to name a few. 

Clinical Massage Therapy
I incorporate Clinical massage knowledge and Swedish moves with Trigger Point, Deep Tissue and Myofascial techniques.

I can help with chronic stress injuries, including (but not limited to) Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, TMJ, shin splints, Sciatica.  I can also help with chronic headaches and sleep challenges. I encourage correct postural habits to ensure the least amount of pain possible.  With healthy muscles, bones and blood flow with ease, making it easier for you to do all of the hobbies and active things you love in life.
