Graduate from National Holistic Institute – Sacramento

I customize my sessions to meet client needs by promoting relaxation and wellness. As a professional massage therapist I encourage clients to integrate massage therapy as a healing practice to achieve mind, body, and soul balance.

With over 1000 hours of education in Western and Eastern massage modalities I provide massages that are customized to achieve the best results for chronic muscle pain relief.

My clients benefit from my education and experience, however, more importantly, it is my goal to listen, recommend, and deliver the best combination of massage techniques. A customized massage will facilitate body healing and stress relief.

My Story:

After I graduated from College with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration I began applying for jobs. I always wanted to work where I could help people. I had been working in call centers and management when I started to feel the effects of stress, exhaustion, and overtime. My priorities had changed and the amount of stress I was under took a lot of energy out of me. I started suffering from debilitating migraines, thyroid dysfunction and I lacked a sense of well- being.

After seeking medical advice, undergoing CT scans, consulting with neurologists, and trying different medications with no answers or results, I was very frustrated and depressed because there was no improvement despite all my efforts.

Then I did the best thing I have ever done: I started to look into the natural ways to heal myself. One of natural ways recommended was to get a massage. I immediately felt the positive effects from the massage. After my experience I became very interested in the benefits of massage and how they aided in my pain relief.

I was so amazed with my level of relief that I researched the field of massage and various massage schools. While I researched what a career as a certified massage was all about I had the deepest feeling that this was my calling, and what I am meant to do in this life. Helping people to relax, restore, heal, and prevent pain is best reward I could ask for.

I was lucky to have found the best school in California – National Holistic Institute.  It was the greatest education, support system and community of encouragement I have ever been a part of. The school both educates you and guides you during the journey of becoming a CMT. NHI’s professionalism and support was amazing. The entire campus environment was more than I could have even hoped for. They helped us both individually and on a team level. I left behind all the factors that were negatively affecting my health, including my old career.I found new meaning in life with massage therapy. The best thing of all is that my 5 day long excruciating migraines and daily headaches are gone!

I am very happy to be able to help people that are in pain because I have experienced it first hand. I wish I had found massage therapy a long time ago to help with my recovery and prevent a lot of my reccurring pain.

I was selected to become an Ambassador for National Holistic. I am actively promoting massage therapy and have been volunteering at community events giving and 10 -15 minute sessions for people so they can experience the relief that can come from massage. I can also educate them on the many benefits of massage therapy.

I am located in wonderful Auburn, CA.  I am grateful own a business doing what I love. I love helping my community through massage therapy, leading to healthier and happier lifestyles.

Thank you for reading – have a wonderful day!
