I’m a certified Massage Therapist in Columbia Missouri. I am in the process of moving my license from California to Missouri. I received my certification in Colorado and have been practicing massage therapy for thirteen years. I worked at a premier spa in Denver for four years then worked at a Forbes five star spa in Pebble Beach CA for four years. Prior to studying massage I was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 17 years and have my MSSW.
I believe professional massage can add to our overall sense of well being and is preventive care. Massage eases and reduces the effects of stress. A quiet massage creates a deep calm. It has been shown that stress is a primary contributor to dis-ease and illness. The mental ‘drifting’ and relaxation that massage offers, is similar to meditation or light sleep and contributes to our natural ability to heal ourselves. Massage allows the body to feel quieted, neutralized; the mind may respond with more clarity after the massage. The more often we can do things that create this state – the better!
I relocated to Columbia, this vibrant college town, in order to take care of my mom and be near my grad student son and daughter-in-love!
Providing therapeutic massage has changed my life. With each passing year, my understanding of and love for this intuitive practice deepens. Doing massage connects me to the giving nature of life and helps me extend love into the world.
Please contact me with any questions you may have about your specific needs and my modalities or about massage in general. I hope to hear from you soon!
