I have been practicing massage therapy since 2010, however, my interest in massage started in the early 1990s while studying and traveling in Europe. The sense of vitality and well-being I felt after my first massage experience really left an impression on me. In 2009 I decided to make a big career change from the corporate world into the field of massage therapy. To me, massage therapy is science, art, and philosophy, guided by experience and intuition. I get to help and inspire others, teach, learn, and facilitate positive change in peoples lives.
I believe the daily juggling of our careers, family, friends and personal responsibilities combined with constant bombardment of text messages, emails, and big city life cause emotional and physical stress on our bodies. Most of us go through the day living in our heads and forget to pay attention to our physical self. Beyond the benefits of manipulating soft tissue, massage has the ability to connect our body with our mind to live with freer movement and greater self-awareness.
