I am a CA State Certified Massage Therapist who has been successfully practicing massage therapy and bodywork within Sacramento and surrounding areas since 2005, during which time I have enjoyed providing much needed stress relief and a personalized massage therapy experience to Sacramento area residents and business professionals. In recent years I have had the privilege to work under Beretta Physical Therapy.
My education includes a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from California State University, Sacramento as well as the following accreditations, experience and knowledge in the field of massage therapy: Graduate of The Body Institute of Granite Bay, CA (2005) - approved by the State of California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Vocational Education. As a post-graduate, I was recognized for exceptional skills, and received an opportunity to demonstrate my techniques and ability for KQCA's morning news program.
I have studied massage modalities with local area experts who include Reflexology (Patricia Casey), Sports Massage (Rachel Lawerence), Deep Tissue (Ken Ross), and Advanced Orthopedic Massage(James E. Waslaski). Additionally, I am fully trained in Swedish massage, Shiatsu, Lymphatic, Stone Therapy, Trigger point, and Body wraps. I have also received specialized training in Thai massage from Eddie Chong, one of the last "closed door" students of Pan Nam, one of only a few great teachers to retain the lost treasure of Shaolin training.
I combine the love of the healing arts with a background of various martial arts disciplines which help bring the energy of mind and body into focus for direct and soothing pressure. I currently hold a black belt in Bok Fu (White Tiger style) and is continuing her study of the ancient Chinese art of Chi Kung. I have provided professional massage services to several upscale Spa and Massage Therapy establishments such as Dolce Vita Day Spa (Granite Bay); Skintopia Day Spa (Folsom) and Lincoln Day Spa (Lincoln). Since 2006, I have lent massage support to the American Cancer Society's annual "relay for life" events as well as the Pink Ribbon breast cancer support events. I have also volunteered massage services to benefit the Tour de Lincoln bicycle marathon.
Some of my more unique experiences have been working on the WWF team as well as Ringling Bros Circus performers. I look forward to continuing my education and working towards new goals within the massage Industry.
