I have been working in the world of the healing arts since 2004. In 2003, I began the accelerated Massage Therapy Diploma program at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy (CSMT).
Upon my graduation, I became licensed as a Massage Therapist in the State of Illinois. I have been thoroughly trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone and Sports Massage techniques, and am also certified in pre-natal massage.
My experience is vast as I have worked in both clinical environments (chiropractic offices) as well as spas where the environment was more relaxing and/ or holistic in nature. In addition to my work as a massage therapist, I also worked in the fitness industry for over 20 years as a Certified Personal Trainer which allowed me to grow as a healer.
In 2006, I began my studies in Reiki at the Mystical Sciences Institute in Evanston, IL, and in 2021 I completed my Reiki Master/ Teacher 1st Degree program. Most people describe a Reiki session as being an incredibly relaxing experience that leaves them feeling rejuvenated and restored.
