As a graduate of the National Holistic Institute of Emeryville in 1998 I have been lucky enough to dedicate my last 20 years to a job that I love. I am passionate about helping people improve their day to day life by reducing pain and stress. Educating my clients in ways to maintain and improve their conditions is a fundamental part of my practice. The more you understand your pain, the more control you have in your personal journey.
My mother had double sciatica from a work injury when I was 12. With a 50/50 chance of successful surgery she was in constant high frequency pain and dependent on prescribed narcotics. Granted 12 massage therapy sessions by a progressive doctor, she was able to walk without pain and get off narcotics by the end of the treatments.
This was truly inspiring to me. By the time I graduated high school I knew I wanted to help people find a way to heal their pain issues in a holistic way when possible. When I graduated NHI I started my path as a medical oriented massage therapist. I feel so fortunate to have been able to dedicate my life to the care and health of others.
