I grew up in Colorado right between Denver and Boulder. I started skiing at the age of 10 and loved to hike in the mountains during the summer months. I was always drawn to water so I moved to Oahu in 1985 to enjoy the ocean. I still love to hike and swim, and have learned to paddle and scuba dive. I studied massage therapy at the American Institute of Massage Therapy in Kailua HI in 2003 and have been licensed in the state of Hawaii since.
I was struck by a car in 1988 while riding a bicycle. I waited 2 years before seeking any type of body work and feel that this delay caused permanent damage, leading to symptoms that persist to this day, almost 30 years later. I strive to educate my clients of the importance of massage and self care, such as stretching and proper body mechanics, to improve their health and well being.
My philosophy towards massage and bodywork is the sooner any dysfunction in your body is addressed, the sooner and easier it will be to get back to optimum health.
