About Me

Massage therapist Paso Robles CaliforniaHow I Got Here

I spent many years working in a chair in the computer world. I know the dangers of sitting and living with a lot of stress. Now I work to relieve pain and stress for my clients. I have a special place in my heart for knowledge workers, those of us who sit in front of (mostly) a computer all day long,  using our minds while neglecting our bodies. I also like to work with anyone that is getting older… as we get older, we start to feel aches and pains, stiffness and soreness. Massage can really help to keep that to a minimum! And I’ve seen enough evidence to know now that regular massage keeps us younger… my 80+ year old mother gets massages weekly and she’s in amazing health!

So I went to school to learn about bodies and how they work… which, by the way, is still a mystery in so many ways.  I have earned my California Massage Therapist License (#53469, for those who care) and now I am a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT), professionally trained with over 700 hours of instruction at the California Holistic Institute in San Luis Obispo, Upledger Institute and other providers. I am certified through the California Massage Therapy Council and a member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP). I’m proud to be able to offer this important service for healing, relaxation, relief and blessings to my clients.

As I see it, every massage is a moment in time where healing can occur and peace can be expanded.


Why Massage?

What I know is that just about anything is better… plus massage! Massage is good for you… it relieves pain, lowers your blood pressure, helps you sleep at night, encourages healing and builds immunity. Bodywork can adjust and correct little problems that create annoying pain, making your daily life that much easier and more enjoyable. Massage can improve your ability to relate to others, as well as to your own mind, spirit and body.

Massage brings healing and understanding… Let’s face it, if everyone got a regular massage, the world would be a better place. Yep, you guessed it… massage can save the world!


Let’s Meet!

While we are working towards a better world, it is important to take care of ourselves. I can give you an appointment any day except Sunday. If you work all week, take an hour on the weekend to take care of yourself and get a massage, or start your week out right… do your part for world peace!

I can’t wait to meet you!
