I've been in the field of health and wellness for over 28 years. In 1988, I was certified in massage by Michael Eakin at Body Tune Up School of Massage in Stockton, CA. I continued my education in reflexology and served on the Board of Sacramento Valley Reflexology Association from 1989 to 1992. In 1993, I was one of the first to be certified by the American Reflexology Certification Board.
My interest and education in healing and wellness led me to discover hypnotherapy and Neuro- Linguistic Programming (NLP). I attended Advanced Training Institute and in 1991 became certified in both Hypnosis and NLP.
Throughout my wellness journey, I have come to know and understand how important the spiritual component is in health and healing. In 1986, my spiritual quest led me to India, where I travelled, studied and spent time in an Ashram, .
Following my trip over seas, in 1991, I travelled to Mt. Shasta, California to study with spiritual teacher Dennis Adams.
In 2006, after 20 years of practice, I experienced a back injury. In addition to massage, a major part of my rehabilitation was GYROKINESIS ®. Upon healing my injury and feeling stronger than ever, I decided to pursue training and certification in GYROKINESIS ®. The following year, I traveled to Germany and was certified in GYROKINESIS ®. I currently teach several times a week and continue with my own personal commitment to wellness and fitness.
In 2011, I found my way back to my first massage instructor, Michael Eakin, to study Tuina. Following completion of my course work, I traveled with Michael and my class to China. We spent time in Huanghou studying under Master Chin. I've incorporated my Tuina training into my practice to facilitate health and wellness with my clients.
