“I am passionate about health and wellness and I have found great joy in sharing that with others. I love being of service and assisting others who choose to make their health and wellness a priority on their path to Wholeness and Healing. “

I always knew that I wanted to work at Healing One, and I am so thrilled and honored to be a part of this team and community of wonderful people as I start out in my massage therapy practice! I've been guided by whatever you would like to "name it" to become a Healer - an inner knowing, like a compass, that is connected to a greater source. The synchronicity and circumstances of life led to an inner knowing to express and embody itself more fully, which provoked me to make a change for the better and be of service, to create a career where I would feel fulfilled and be helpful to others. In 2015 I decided to attend my first yoga teacher training, and I began teaching yoga in the summer of 2016, graciously sharing that practice with others for the past three years in Reno and South Lake Tahoe.

 
 

A few years passed and my daughter Iris started kindergarten, so I decided it was the right time for me to enroll in massage school, inspired and encouraged by my dear friend Elena. I completed the 650 hour program at The Bodhi Tree of Healing Arts in Carson City, NV in about a year-and-a-half, from Sept 2017- Feb 2018. Here I gained knowledge and experience in a variety of massage modalities and styles, such as Soft Tissue and Accelerated Soft Tissue Release, Deep Tissue, Lymphatic massage, Reflexology, Sports massage, LomiLomi, Facial Freedom Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone, Floor Shiatsu, Tui Na, Cupping massage, and Aromatherapy. I also gained knowledge and experience in some energy healing modalities by attending classes and seminars such as Fundamentals of Energy-Medicine healing, Quantum Light Energy Healing, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Holistic Healing massage, Intuition Development, and Sound Healing. I also obtained my Reiki 1 & 2 certifications.

My goal is to provide each client with a positive experience of embodiment. A session with me is going to be both relaxing and therapeutic, customized depending on what the clients needs are that day or what they're working towards longterm. I feel it's important to educate my clients and offer them other helpful recommendations for self-care and stress management tips to continue their healing after the session ends.

I think the deepest healing occurs in many circumstances, however, I also believe being in a relaxed state is very beneficial to a more integrative sense of healing, by the use of bodywork and energy work. I have seen the deepest healing occur when we connect more deeply with and become more aware of ourselves, resulting in us becoming more aware of others. In this process, one becomes more aware of the habits, patterns, and fluctuations of life and the mind, causing deep shifts in our perception to help us see more clearly and more fully - gaining wisdom and understanding, leading to forgiveness, and ultimately love and acceptance.

Outside of work I love to spend time with my daughter Iris and our puppy dog Gemma. I love being outside gardening, camping, hiking, snowboarding - anything outdoors really. I have been blessed to live in the Tahoe-Reno area for all my life, and as a result I'm pretty into being out in the woods, on the mountains, on the lake, or on the river; you name it. I love practicing and teaching yoga, as well as flow arts such as hoop dancing - it changed my life! I love cooking and baking, and I love most all things health and wellness related.
