I started my training in Massage Therapy in 1993 and have been practicing professionally on the Peninsula since 1995. My approach to working with the body is to nurture the entire being (mind, body and spirit) with various techniques and modalities as well as energetically. I am trained in Swedish, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue/Sports massage, Shiatsu/Accupressure, Reflexology, Pre-Natal, Esalen, La Stone Therapy, Polarity and I am a Reiki Master. I encourage the body to let go and relax through stretching and range of motion if so desired. I am a good listener and will be sensitive to your needs.
I started my professional massage training at 16 years old, I am very comfortable with bodies. I've been told I am intuitive and have an ability to "Find the spots." My range is from relaxation to therapeutic/pain relief to myofascial deep tissue. I have training in physical and emotional trauma renegotiation and am available for mind body sessions if desired.
I have been a massage therapist working on the Monterey peninsula for over 30 years. Since 1991 I have been a member of The Massage Team taking care of our guests staying at the resorts and hotels here on the beautiful central coast. My massage is an eclectic blend of deep work combined with energy moves which helps to relax the body while addressing current issues. I draw on such modalities as; Deep tissue and trigger point therapy, Swedish, Cranial Sacral, Traeger, ,Shiatsu and Prenatal. I am a licensed Midwife as well and have worked with many women throughout their pregnancies. I look forward to meeting and working with you soon.
I have been a massage therapist since 1992. I incorporate Swedish, Trager. Cranial Sacral, Reflexology, and Aromatherapy into my work. I am also trained to give Pre-natal and Hot Stone massage and I have worked in a clinical setting. My hope is that my massage can offer you balance and relief from the daily challenges life confronts you with. Thank you.

I have been a massage therapist since 2003. I graduated from the Monterey Institute of Touch right here on this beautiful peninsula. I love being a massage therapist and being able to provide a nurturing and healing touch to my clients. I am trained in Swedish massage, Myofascial Relase, Accupressure, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Deep tissue, Hot stone massage, Sports massage and Prenatal massage. I have worked for the past thirteen years at the Spa at Pebble Beach as well as hotels and working with private clients. In my Spa work i have provided body scrubs, body wraps and facial treatment along with massage. I have many years of experience massaging golfers and working on their sports related needs. My goal is to provide you with a therapeutic nurturing massage. I tend to work very firm while still providing relaxation.
I received certification in 2005, culminating a life long passion beginning as a pre-teen when I would rub my mom's aching hands and feet after a hard day's work. My heart's desire to make the world a better place is funneled through the healing art of touch as well as a place for my meditative mind to kick in. I use a variety of techniques and modalities to "trick" the body to let go and create space. I also use my intuition to supply the perfect pressure to induce maximum tension release and relaxation. I care about every body I touch. I've worked at Carmel Valley Ranch, the Naval Post Graduate School and for local chiropractors. Check out my Yelp reviews under Sano Spa and Spa on the Plaza where I currently still work. I recognize the inherent trust that takes place with each massage. I see every massage as a dance of trust, breath and pulse. Shall we dance?
