Health and healing have always been my passion. I attended my first nutritional & bodywork education class in 1990 in India and have since explored many resources in order to continue to learn and enrich my knowledge on how to improve one's quality of life through nutrition and therapeutic massage.

Nutrition Background

In 2014 I graduated from the Hawthorn University as a certified nutritionist. I also worked for a natural medicine doctor, assisting in creating holistic health protocols for her patients and attending nutritional seminars as part of my job. This gave me extensive knowledge and a good foundation even before becoming a nutritionist.

My goal is to empower my clients and learn how to listen to the innate wisdom of their own bodies. This is a wonderful way to facilitate healing and make empowered choices concerning one’s health.

In my own life I have found it immensely beneficial and valuable to take the time to learn about healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices. It has been the best thing I have done for myself in order to create a happy, healthy, long and productive life.

Bodywork BACKGROUND

Doing bodywork for over 10 years has enabled me to incorporate a wide variety of techniques into my work, making every session a unique and personal experience.

In 1998 I graduated from the New Mexico Academy of healing Arts as a certified Massage Therapist. Since then I have studied many healing modalities and combined them with my practical training in anatomy, pathology, structural integration and medical massage. This gives me the ability to intuitively discover the hidden pain centers in the body address structural issues as well as remove energetic blockages to facilitate exhilarated healing. Over the years I have acquired extensive knowledge, working for various health spas, chiropractors and doctors. This has enabled me to gain a lot of experience with acute & chronic injuries, specifically related to car accidents, carpal tunnel syndrome, back injuries and migraines among many others.

My training includes Swedish, Deep Tissue, Medical Massage, Cranio Sacral, Lomi Lomi, Structural Integration, Shiatsu, Spa Treatments, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Hot Stone Massage, Healing & Energy Work (Matrix Energetics).

I am also a certified LaStone Therapist and I teach Hot Stone Massage classes.
