Graduated from Portland’s East West College of the Healing Art’s in June, 2008. I have taken over 36 hours of continuing education credits, certified to perform CPR and a member of AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) and OBMT (Oregon Board of Massage Therapists).
I have worked in three prominent Spas, one in Beaverton, Downtown Portland and Happy Valley. For more than three years, I have worked in an alternative health care clinic with a Chiropractor, Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist. It was a positively wonderful experience to practice in such a busy clinic consisting of such a wide variety of client’s in varying backgrounds, ages, occupations and health conditions. Many of the client’s were recovering from a Motor Vehicle Accident. Other client’s I have treated suffered from :
ALS, Asthma, Bursitis, Chemical Dependency, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, Degenerative Disc, Diabetes Mellitus, Edema, Fibromyalgia, Fractures, Frozen Shoulder, Gout, Headaches, Hernia, Herniated Discs, Low Back Pain, Multiple Sclerosis, Seizure Disorders, Shin Splints, Sinusitis, Muscular Dystrophy, Myositis Ossificans, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Plantar Fasciitis, Post Polio Syndrome, Post Operative Situations, Sleep Disorders, Postural Deviations, Pregnancy, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sciatica, Scoliosis, Sprains, Strains, Tendonitis, TMJ-Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, Thyroid Disease, Torticollis, Varicose Veins, Whiplash and Chronic Pain.
I am a very compassionate and caring health care provider. My hope is to aid in the healing process of my clients until they have full range of motion and are free of pain. Also, to allow healthy people the chance to enhance their health with deep relaxation and enjoy therapeutic massage sessions with little or no talking. Peace and quiet is good therapy!!!
