A ten year career as a surgical nurse offered me medical experience as well as understanding of the body an it's functions.
From 1999 to 2001, I trained as a massage therapist at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health and California College of Physical Arts; having attained my certification as Massage Practitioner.
To complete this approach with Energy work, I passed my 1st, 2nd and 3rd level of Reiki , and then learned the modality, "Body Talk System", and finally started a few years ago to train as an Access Consciousness Bars practitioner. I use different Energy Body Processes during my massages.
My favorite type of massage is a combination massage that combines techniques from multiple massage types from Swedish, Circulatory, Shiatsu, Thai, Acupressure, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue and Reflexology; that will respond to your personal preferences and specific needs. Which will relieve stress, tension and pain.
I have more than 8 years of experience as a clinical esthetician.My background has provided me numerous opportunities to work with clients of different ages with complex skin types such as acne, acne scarring, sun damage, rosacea, discoloration, lines and wrinkles or various skin conditions.
I will customize your massage to meet any specific needs. You will receive a wonderful, transformative massage. My specialty is the combo, which is both therapeutic-medium to deep pressure, but gentle enough to relax you and ease your stress. Have a wonderful day and I hope to see you soon!
