I have felt a deep need to help comfort others through massage since a young age. After caring for family members and sustaining serious injuries myself in a car accident as a teen, the desire to alleviate pain in others became a driving passion that led me to my calling. I became a licensed massage therapist in 2005 and since then I have been trained as a yoga instructor and in several healing modalities as noted below.
I am known regionally as a Sacred Lomi Lomi practitioner and teacher and locally as a yoga teacher and an intuitive treatment massage therapist using deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point, active isolated stretching, passive stretching, cross fiber friction, and origin and insertion techniques integrated holistically with all my training. My goal is to help my clients break pain patterns and support them in continuing their journey to a better quality of life. I believe my ability to understand and listen is my gift, and that all healing begins with unconditional love.
My sanctuary is Sukha Healing Arts Center in Des Moines, Washington. Sukha's goal is to support you where you are -- physically, emotionally and spiritually-- and to help you to be in alignment with your higher self. Sukha was created as a heart-centered destination to assist you in finding your divine truth from a dream-book my daughter and I created on our trip to Bali in April of 2011. The dream became a reality in September of 2011. Through the support of loved ones, we were able to complete an extensive remodel and were up and running in 20 days.
A little about me outside the realm of Sukha…I love spending time with my daughter, gardening, writing poetry, painting, jumping out of airplanes, music, dancing, yoga, spending time with family and friends, cooking, reading, remodeling, traveling, learning and continuing to check off my bucket list.
