Through gentle and strong hands, I look forward to providing you with a relaxing and therapeutic healing session designed to meet your specific concerns and personal needs.
As an athlete, professional singer and dancer, and mother to three children, one with special needs, I am passionate about the benefits of massage and healing touch to help aide the body self correct, relax, and return to a state of balance and wellness.
I specialize in Swedish Massage, Oncology Massage, Myofascial Release (MFR), Cranial Sacral Therapy, Somatic Emotional Release, Energy Healing, Pre-Natal/Pregnancy Massage, Certified Pediatric Massage for Special Needs/Medically Complex Children and Typically Developed Children, and Geriatric Massage in the San Fernando Valley, CA.
As a Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist with Pediatric hands, I specialize in working with children with complex needs. Whether that be medical or developmentally delayed, I have experience working with kids. All children and teens benefit greatly from massage.... stimulates regularity, deeper sleep patterns, relaxation, increased range of motion and better body awareness are just some of the benefits of massage.
A Pediatric Massage will look very different from an adult/spa massage depending on the child's needs and development. It might include stories, games, stretches on the floor, and possibly traditional table massage. Typically a Pediatric Massage will last between 30-45 minutes. As a Massage Therapist at UCLA Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, I also have experience working with children with complex medical issues. (Organ Transplants, Cancer, Cardio Myopathy, Hypotonia, Intubations, Feeding Tubes, Cerebral Palsy, Seizures etc...)
I have worked with adults and children with severe and mild medical issues, injuries, sports strains, migraines, neck discomfort, spinal issues, healing fractures, Cancer patients in treatment and/or in remission, as well as general wellness bodywork. I have also worked at Buena Vista Hospice as a Massage Therapist offering Palliative Care for end of life patients. I believe strongly in heart centered touch to help the body heal, self correct, and offer comfort.
We're all busy in our daily lives and neglect to take time for ourselves. I invite you to relax and restore your body, mind and spirit to a new state of wellness and health. I look forward to meeting your personal needs to help your body heal, feel restored and relaxed.
