I discovered massage therapy later in life. I’d never even had a professional massage until I was in my late 30’s. Even then, I didn’t consider it as a career choice - I was too busy working in the financial industry. Then someone introduced me to Reiki, which still isn’t massage, but is such a quiet, powerful way of healing that I wanted to start sharing it with the world. I lived in Florida at the time, where a license to touch is required if you want to practice Reiki as a business. To get a license to touch, I could go to nursing school or massage school. Since I’m not fond of blood, my choice was clear. From the first day of Anatomy and Physiology I knew I’d found a new path and I was eager to follow it through. Along with Reiki, I learned massage styles including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and Thai. I graduated in 2010 and completed my Reiki Master training in 2011. After graduating I added certification in Nurturing the Mother (Prenatal and Postpartum); Bamboo Fusion; Lymphatic Detox; and Integrative Reflexology. Since embarking on this new path, I feel I have changed and grown in ways I never imagined. I look forward to meeting each new client and love seeing my return clients as they begin to relax, breathe, and heal.
The first time I work with a new client, I try to find out more than just what hurts today. You may have tension in your legs today, but what usually bothers you is your shoulders. So we will discuss your goal for today as well as your overall healing or wellness goals. Sometimes the way to reach that goal is to schedule more frequent visits for a short time, followed by maintenance sessions spaced farther apart.
Along with offering Reiki Healing alone or as part of a massage or Reflexology session, I offer Reiki Training to those who are interested. I teach three levels: Reiki I for self-healing; Reiki II for working with others; Reiki III/Master for teaching others.
