I finished my initial training at the Oregon School of Massage in 2007. My studies centered on the Eastern style modality of Shiatsu.
I have training in Deep Tissue, Orthopedic Massage and Trigger Point relief techniques, along with other therapeutic modalities. Additionally, I hold certifications in AIS (Active Isolated Stretch), Massage Cupping, Gua Sha, Thai Herbal neck and head recovery and Jade Stone facial rejuvenation techniques.
I provide thorough treatment using many modalities for clients with chronic pain and postural deviations. My focus is on assisting clients to understand and utilize self-help techniques and their body's ability to heal on the musculoskeletal level.
I also provide AIS and Trigger point relief education to the public as well as Qi Gong. I am licensed by the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists. I am nationally Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and adhere to the NCBTMB Code of Ethics.
The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) is an independent, private, nonprofit organization founded in 1992. The mission of NCBTMB is to define and advance the highest standards in the massage therapy and bodywork profession.
