I was born and grew up in Pennsylvania. I lived and worked in Ohio, California, Illinois, and Iowa before coming to Florida in 1995 to care for her father. My massage therapy career began in 1989 when I became an Ayurvedic Technician. Ayurveda is an ancient healthcare system of India. Several specialized massages are a part of its rejuvenation therapy. Since 1997 I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist in Florida, after having completed a training program at The Sarasota School of Massage Therapy, which included Anatomy and Physiology, and Swedish, Structural Swedish, and Connective Tissue Massage. My continuing education includes: Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, Sports Massage, Geriatric Massage, Prenatal Massage, Reiki, Hot Stone Massage, Orthopedic Massage, Arthrossage, and Structural Energetic Therapy.
