Massage and Bodywork Therapy Certification Program
To further my technical skills, I attended trainings in Medical Massage through the LMT Success Group and NMT for Headaches, Whiplash, and TMJD through the Western North Carolina School of Massage. I have also been a Reiki practitioner since 2009, trained by Bonnie Hassan in Pittsburgh, PA. As a mom, I realize that massage is an invaluable tool for communicating with and caring for our children. Massage helps them sleep, relieve constipation and congestion, and offers many more health benefits. It's also a wonderful way to bond and nurture our children. In order to promote and share this gift, I became certified through the internationally recognized Liddle Kidz Foundation as a Pediatric Massage Therapist and Infant Massage Instructor. I then received additional training in working with children on the autism spectrum and with cancer. Prior to becoming a massage therapist, I was a counselor for traumatized and mentally ill youth and their families for 6 years, as well as a researcher in the field of social work for 3 years.
