I have been a Certified Massage Therapist since 2004. I graduated from the Midwest Academy of Healing Arts, which required 500 comprehensive hours of massage. I then returned to complete the requirements for the instructor internship, requiring an additional 500 hours. In 2007, I became a national certified massage therapist through the Board of National Certification in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCTMB).
As a massage therapist, my overall goal is to promote wellness, encourage balance and harmony, and assist in helping the client experience an overall sense of well-being through therapeutic massage and bodywork. I also specialize in other modalities such as Aromatherapy, Raindrop Technique, and Reiki. I actively listen to my clients and ask questions, which allow me to cater each session to the individual needs of that client. It is such a wonderful experience to witness an individual achieving their desired result.
Having the opportunity to share the various benefits of massage, and serving the needs of others is a gratifying and humbling experience. I am continually grateful to be a part of a profession in which I am able to make a difference in the lives of others through the gift of massage therapy.
