After receiving monthly massages for nearly 20 years, I decided it was time that I study massage to be on the other side of the table! I trained at the Sebastopol Massage Center in Sonoma County, California in 1999 and practiced there until returning to my native New Orleans in 2004, where I repeated schooling for Louisiana licensing. I’ve been fortunate to practice in a wide variety of settings including Northern California spas, fitness centers, chiropractic offices, corporate events/settings, and clinical offices where I worked on those who had suffered from various worker’s compensation and auto accident injuries. And, lastly, I’ve been able to set up my own offices, both in California and now here in New Orleans.
My style has developed over the years into an integration of the basic/foundational firm Swedish massage, and the deeper work including trigger point therapy, myofascial release and soft tissue release. In all massages, energy work is blended into the session. I am a Reiki Master and use Polarity Therapy and Healing Touch energy work as well. Additionally, I am licensed by the State Medical Board in Acupuncture Detoxification. This is applied to the ears only.
I provide a relaxing environment where you can trust that I will do my best to assist you in ‘turning your muscles off’ so that you can experience a deep sense of rest.
