I have been providing therapeutic massage since 1998. I am a licensed massage therapist with the State of Iowa and a member of ABMP.
I completed 800 hours of training at the Shiatsu Clinic and School in October of 1998. The primary training was Focused Touch Shiatsu. I incorporate Shiatsu in every massage as I feel the results are extremely beneficial. I mostly use an integrative technique combining Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue Massage and Trigger Point Therapy. Since then, I continue to receive education to further my knowledge and add techniques that will benefit my clients.
I provide a safe environment for all my clients and I customize each massage to each individual. I provide services that I am qualified to perform and to the best of my ability. I respect all boundaries and follow the Code of Ethics for my profession.
Before my profession of bodywork, I graduated from the University of Iowa with a B.A. degree. I have two beautiful children and love the outdoors, cycling, hiking, and gardening.
I do enjoy being able to assist people with their path of healing and promotion of wellness in the body. It is fulfilling to help relieve a client's headache, neck and shoulder pain or just to help them have a quiet place to relax and renew.
