About Me

I graduated with honors, from the Soma Institute for Clinical Massage Therapy, in Chicago, in 2006.  The Soma program is 750 class hours, including extensive coursework in anatomy, pathology, physiology and kinesiology, an hands-on training in various modalities.  Hands-on work included protocols to address specific postural dysfunctions, overuse injuries and pain management, as well as practical experience at the student clinic and the Northwestern Hospital Oncology unit.  I compliment the clinical massage focus with continuing education in Reiki, traditional energy work studied at the California Academy of Healing Arts, in Cost Mesa, CA.

In Chicago I  worked at the  Galter Life Center, the fitness and rehabilitatative center for Swedish Covenant Hospital and I had a private clientele.  
Volunteer work includes massage for competitors at the finish line as well as the medical tent at mile 18 for the Chicago Marathon in 2005 and 2006.
Since returning to California in 2006 I have a private clientele in addition to a job in Corporate America.
