Therapist Certifications

In July of 2000, I attended Body Wisdom School of Massage Therapy. The school was excellent. Classes were taught in weekly segments a month apart. 500 hours of hands on training with instructors from all over the United States and Japan.

With employees downsizing, more pressure is placed on existing staff causing stress and anxiety. I have personally experienced this. As a result, I resigned from my full-time “corporate job” on April 15th, 2009 and decided to turn my passion into my career to help others that are feeling so much pressure in the workplace.

I am proud to announce after working part-time as a licensed & certified massage therapist, for 8 years I am following my inner voice and doing it full-time! We all need balance. I want to help you and your employees find balance! Less stress; less dis-ease! We need to get to ease!
