Massaging people makes my heart sing. Why? Because my clients experience tension, stress, pain, fatigue, anxiety evaporate when my skillful loving hands firmly sculpting their achy muscles, and soften their connective tissue. My massage also increases the level of feel good hormones oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine so that their whole body exhales into a deep inner relaxation.
They feel calm, centered, rejuvenated, nurtured, serene, transformed. Their minds become as expansive as the sky.
I studied massage to help people reduce the stress of overwork. I worked 75 hours a week for 12 years. Then I discovered massage. Every Sunday morning I had a 2 hour massage that released the whole week’s stress. I experienced the day totally relaxed.
I have trained 2300 hours in 14 modalities, including deep tissue, craniosacral therapy, pre-natal, reflexology, Reiki, hot stone, Thai, Swedish and myofacial release. I have a range of methods to suit the various and changing needs of clients.
Working full time at the Oaks of Ojai Spa, Spa del Mar at Fess Parker Doubletree Resort, The Pierpont Inn, and Massage Envy fine-tuned my skills over 15 years. Joining the Daily Bliss Yoga team has been very rewarding as yoga and massage are so closely linked.
I also work with chronic health issues as well as injuries.
