I am a Massage Therapist who is passionate about holistic healing. Allow me to take you on my journey that led me to this career. In 2009 I became very interested in health and wellness, I joined a CrossFit gym that was owned by a Chiropractor. While training I also started Chiropractic care. I sought out care because as a child I was in multiple car accidents that as an adult I was still dealing with symptoms on a daily basis. I would get headaches, migraines and limb numbness and tingling.
While under care I learned I had Lumbar Scoliosis. CrossFit was great in complementing the Chiropractic care because it strengthened my back. Although even with Chiropractic and CrossFit I was still having symptoms such as headaches and limb numbness and tingling. So I sought out treatment from the clinics massage therapist. My symptoms diminished greatly, making my interests grow stronger in the search for health and wellness.
I then became a CrossFit level 1 trainer. I coached on a military base in South Korea for a year and a half while also attending to school online at IIN (Institute of Integrated Nutrition.) Once I graduated as a Health Coach from IIN, I combined the two backgrounds to provide a well-rounded plan for holistic wellness for my athletes and clients. Life then took some turns and landed me back in the U.S. where I continued my health and wellness journey.
I then moved to Tacoma, Washington and went to school at Cortiva Institute for Massage. Within the first week of school I knew I had found my passion. While in school I mentored under some amazing LMPs. One of my mentors was also a Contemporary Cupping Therapist (CCT.) While mentoring with her I got to learn how to use the cups and also received my first cupping treatment. From just the one treatment my symptoms decreased tremendously and I knew at that moment once massage school was over I would obtain my certification in Cupping Therapy.
One week after graduation I was in my Cupping Certification class with the ICTA (International Cupping Therapy Association). I also had the privilege to be an assistant instructor for an ICTA class. In my home practice as well as the Chiropractic clinic I worked, my clients saw great results from the combined treatments of massage and cupping therapy. My passion is to help promote healing and wellness in others and I have found massage and cupping therapy are the best avenues for my passion. I look forward to bringing quality care and therapeutic bodywork to those in need.
I joined Simbi while living in Saint Robert, MO where there was very little participates online. The community in Saint Robert was a very tight nit community due to it being such a small town. There for we developed our own ties off line and had a very good bartering community system. I enjoyed very much trading goods and services with others. It really brought us together and very quickly we all be came great friends. I hope to continue the bartering trend where ever life takes me. Join me won't you!?
