About the Practitioner

I am a State of California Certified Massage Practitioner with over 20 years of experience.  I graduated from Prairie State College in Chicago Heights, IL with an Associate of Applied Science degree majoring in Mental Health with a minor in Psychology. I completed Basic as well as Advanced Therapeutic Massage training at the Body Tune Up School of Massage in Stockton, CA and the Central California College of Massage Therapy in Modesto, CA.  I use a variety of modalities and techniques including Swedish, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Aromatherapy, Passive Joint Mobilization, Hot Stone, Prenatal, Chair Massage and Reiki.

I have lived in Calaveras County for over 40 years, residing for the past 3 years in Avery, CA.  After 21 years in practice out of an office on my property in Douglas Flat, I moved into Dr. Thomas Richmond's chiropractic office in Murphys, CA., on May 1, 2016, at 481 East Hwy. 4, across the highway from El Jardin Mexican Restaurant.  What started as a way to care for and comfort an ailing loved one, turned into a profession.  I have always felt that I was on this earth to be of service to others and feel I have found my true calling in Massage Therapy.
