I got licensed to practice massage therapy in 2016, and have studied and practiced energy medicine since 2010. I became interested in massage therapy while noticing that during energetic balancing sessions I felt the urge to manipulate the soft tissues associated with the "stuck" energies on my friends and family members with whom I was practicing with. I went looking for new techniques and more education on the physical human body and how to apply therapeutic touch. After finding the beauty that physical bodywork brought my own life and becoming more familiar with the magic that human touch can bring to all living beings, I decided to further my education by attending "Sage School of Massage" in Bend, Oregon so that I could get my Alaskan massage therapy license and share my new techniques with my community in Fairbanks. The first thing I did when I graduated school was get certified in myofascial release, as this technique has been shown to be very effective for the treatment of chronic conditions and pain. I soon added craniosacral therapy to my toolbox as well, which is a gentle touch technique that uses the body’s own rhythms to restore balance and health to the central nervous system (CNS).
My goal as a therapist is to both educate and encourage my clients to learn how to heal themselves by tapping into their own innate healing abilities empowering them to live better and healthier lives. My approach is a combination of both eastern and western methods and usually includes some myofascial release and energy balancing with bodywork. If you need a positive energetic and caring massage therapist please don’t hesitate to reach out and find out how I can help you restore and revitalize yourself.
