About //

I’ve been practicing massage therapy for almost 30 years, a full decade before licensure became available. Hard to believe considering I’m only in my early 40s, but at the age of 10 I started working on my father after an accident left him in the hospital for a month and permanently disabled. 

Around the age of 12, I started experiencing a decline in my own health to the point that I had to drop out of high school for a year. After visiting several practitioners, I simply made the decision that I was going to get better, and I fought my way back to health. That’s when I first began to understand the profound power of the human mind. At the age of 16, I finally found an amazing chiropractor/healer who opened me up to our own energy systems. 

Then in 1993 I found myself graduating for massage therapy from Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, Arizona, and then moving to Los Angeles. While building my private massage practice, I enrolled in Yo San University and graduated from Emperor's College with a master's degree in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. 

I now practice a wide range of techniques including sports massage, myofascial therapy and scar tissue release, deep tissue massage, acupressure, pregnancy massage, Swedish massage, manual lymphatic drainage, acupuncture, and Chinese herbology. I work with cancer, post-surgery (both necessary and elective), and trauma patients, as well as those suffering from auto-immune disorders. 

Growing up with a family member in chronic pain coupled with my own health issues made a huge impact on me. It started me on a journey—one in which I intensively strive for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health every day. (Not that I never eat a candy bar!) It’s not surprising that my journey to health evolved into a passion for helping others by empowering them on their own paths to health. In turn, they have broadened mine. 

I’ve been fortunate to work with chiropractors, acupuncturists, a psychologist, mediums, healers, physical therapists, personal trainers, naturopaths, surgeons, and MDs who have made me a more well-rounded therapist and person and who I continue to learn from. I hope to pass on what I have been given.
