My mission is simply to help people. I have been doing manual physical therapy for 20 years and I can honestly say that no two sessions have been identical because every client's needs and body are unique. I am trained in an array of techniques that I utilize in an integrated manner to provide customized body care to a wide clientele of all ages. My clients often say that I just have an awareness of what their body needs.

As a therapeutic massage therapist my work integrates gentle yet deeply effective therapeutic modalities including Hawaiian lomi lomi, craniosacral unwinding, abdominal massage, cupping and more. I love using cupping mixed with other hands on therapies because it allows me to get more done in a short amount of time, as well as working more than one area at a time.

Some people in this industry use the word "healer" to describe themselves. I prefer facilitator - in bringing balance to the body and awakening the body's innate ability to heal - not only through manual therapy, but also by guiding you to continue helping yourself thru awareness, exercises and stretches.


Training & Experience

With over 20 years of experience and continued education... I’ve worked in high end resort spas, with doctors and chiropractors, and taught at a leading therapeutic massage school in Hawaii for many years. I've worked with clients as young as 4 years old and others in their 90s, helping a wide range of people from professional athletes to recipients of a hip or knee replacement to individuals with hip or back injuries and everyone in between.

Rather than offering an a la-carte menu of therapies, my diverse training in orthopedic and therapeutic techniques, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, as well as energy healing work and so much in-between all allows me to effectively integrate in a single session a variety of techniques appropriate for the individual client, including (listed alphabetically):

  • Active Isolated Release therapy
  • Acupressure
  • Body mobilization and PNF Stretching
  • Body mobilization techniques
  • Bowen Therapy
  • Cupping Therapy
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Emotional Healing through massage and bodywork
  • Energy medicine
  • Hot Stone Massage
  • Lomi Lomi Massage (Hawaiian)
  • Myofascial Plantar Fasciitis treatment
  • Orthopedic Massage

  • Scar tissue alignment
  • Side-lying Massage
  • Sports Massage

  • Therapeutic Grade Aromatherapy

Other Therapists

Occasionally I work with other therapists, for example for a couple's massage. I have a thorough and strict vetting process for selecting these partnerships to ensure their standard of care is as high as mine. If you schedule an appointment for which a partner therapist is required for any reason, I will notify you during the scheduling of the appointment and I can answer additional questions about the therapist at that time.
