I began my career in the healing arts by pursuing my interest in Aromatherapy. After receiving my certificate in Aromatherapy from the Australasian College of Herbal Studies, I wanted to find an integrative modality in which to apply my newfound knowledge. Having received years of bodywork as a professional actor and dancer, my background in the performing arts naturally led me to pursue the art of massage.
My work consists of a wide range of skills and techniques that I bring to the table in each session. Besides my work in Aromatherapy, I have also trained in several Eastern Bodywork techniques, including Shiatsu, Thai Yoga Therapy, Jin Shin Do Acupressure and Reiki Energy Healing. In addition, as a graduate of the Swedish Institute, I have a very strong background and years of experience doing traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue massage.
My focus during a session is to help my clients acheive a state of deep relaxation in order to completely receive the therapeutic benefits of their massage. My attention to detail is ideal for anyone suffering from the discomfort and pain of an acute injury as well as those who have been dealing with long-term, chronic muscular conditions. My massage sessions combine the specificity of muscle tension release with intuitive, energetic balancing and relaxation therapy that truly makes each treatment a holistic healing experience for all of my clients.
I am a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist, a Nationally Registered Bodyworker with the NCBTMB, a Nationally Registered Aromatherapist with ARC and I am a member of The American Massage Therapy Association.
