My journey on the healing path began in 2003 when I became a Reiki Master. Graduating from Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2006, I became a licensed massage therapist in West Hartford. I am now the proud owner of Therapeutic Massage Associates. I continue to add to my education by taking classes in advanced massage therapy techniques and alternative healing. I became a certified reflexologist in 2009. I have studied rock and crystal healing, aroma , music and color therapy. I believe in incorporating nature and what the earth has to offer into my work. We are Mind, Body and Spirit and only by working on all three can we become a healthy balanced Human Being. Things I like to do: Walking and hiking with my dog, camping, road trips, taking pictures of nature, traveling, and being outside. Special Message: I believe everything happens for a reason. Listen to your inner voice. Miracles happen everyday if you look for them.
I came to Connecticut in 1987 to study massage therapy, joined Therapeutic Massage Associates and never left. I enjoy working on people who have challenges whether they involve injuries, chronic pain or athletic endeavors. I describe my skill in massage therapy as a problem solver because I explore the mysteries of each individual’s problem: physically, energetically and emotionally. To that end, I have studied a broad range of modalities including Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Acupressure, and Myofascial Work to name a few. Most recently I completed four years of study in Energy Medicine and Spiritual Healing with Dorothy Neville at the Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences. When I am not at TMA I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking and leading dances and workshops in vintage dance, dances of the Victorian and ragtime eras, 1840-1925.
