Certified Massage Therapist (CMTC # 37607)
I began my career as a massage therapist in 2006 after graduating from Brenneke School of Massage, in Seattle WA, where I learned traditional Swedish massage, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and treatment work. My continuing education has focused on studying Lomi Lomi, Hawai’ian heart centered massage. My Lomi journey started in childhood, while living in Hawai’i, I had the opportunity to study hula (Hawaiian dance) with a Kumu Hula (a master dancer). Through this journey I learned about Hawai’ian traditions which led me to take my first Lomi class. I have been studying and practicing Lomi ever since. I have taken many intensive classes in the Lomi tradition and very excited to share this gift of Lomi to Westlake Village.
Other modalities that inspire me are Trigger Point Therapy; Anatomy Trains, their myofascial meridians and how they affect fascial patterning; Chinese traditional meridians and Reiki. As a runner, I am also passionate about helping athletes recover from the pains of training. I understand the soreness and the tightness that effects athletes as I trained for three half marathons in the year 2013 –participated in the gold series! When I’m not massaging or running, I am practicing Yoga, dancing hula, and spending as much time outdoors enjoying the gorgeous California weather.
The ancient Hawaiian massage focuses on energy flow and connection. It is a harmonious massage, using long continuous, flowing strokes to connect and relax the mind and body. The session usually starts in silence with a chant as the practitioner quietly asks for whatever healing is needed along with asking the client to set an intention for the session. No two sessions are the same. To facilitate relaxation the room is kept quite warm, warm oil and hot towels are used. This massage will bring you to a place of harmony, tranquility and balance.
