Over the years, my appreciation and trust in the therapeutic benefits of touch has grown exponentially. My aim is to help people to feel at ease in their bodies through facilitating their healing with caring presence and soothing hands. I received a thorough education at East-West College of the Healing Arts, and specialize in Deep Tissue, Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release and Thai Massage. I feel grateful to have the opportunity to help people to recover from injuries, as well as alleviate past traumas and day-to-day stress. In my free time I enjoy biking, hiking, dancing, making music, designing clothing and cuddling cats.
