BA, LMT, Reiki Master, Jin Shin Jyutsu®
In 1984-5, I worked as a therapy technician at the Spain Chiropractic Center in Pensacola, Florida, where I was trained in several procedures including trigger point therapy. This work environment sparked my motivation to pursue further study in natural healing methods. I was certified in the first level of Reiki in Pensacola in 1985, then moved to Tucson the following year to study massage therapy.
I received my 1000-hour massage training at Desert Institute of the Healing Arts (now Cortiva Institute) in Tucson and was certified in December 1987. I have supplemented my education with a variety of seminars over the years, and I specialize in intuitive and specific work combined with a deeply compassionate core.
The desire to expand my involvement with energetic modalities of treatment led me to begin the study of Jin Shin Jyutsu® in 2003. "Jin Shin Jyutsu" translates as "the Art of the Creator through Compassionate Human." It is a profoundly relaxing treatment that helps bring balance and clarity to the body's energy system.
I received my certification in JSJ in November 2005, and attained the Master level of Reiki in June 2008.
