Skilled touch is health maintenance, not a luxury.
Originally from Dallas, I studied cultural anthropology at Hendrix College, and medicine at the University of Arkansas, spent years in raising a family before realizing I was called to work with people, one on one, in the communication of therapeutic touch. I graduated with 1000+ hours from Healing Spirits Massage Training Program in Boulder, CO. I have done done massage in clients' homes, my private office, senior communities, many sports events plus onsite corporate chair massage and table massage, but my true calling is working with seniors in all stages of dementia in their homes, assisted living facilities, and memory care units where I meet the client where they are and focus on their overall wellbeing, finding joy in all circumstances. I also train caregivers for a prominent national home care company in Colorado and am a strong believer in the power of touch therapy with Alzheimer's disease sufferers, up to and including end of life.
I am certified in Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and use it to treat post surgical/injury/cancer treatment edemas, chronic heart failure edemas, lipodema, and diagnosed lymphedema in conjunction with a hospital-based Certified Lymphedema Therapist and/or Physician. MLD has also proven effective in the treatment of Tinnitus, Meniere's Disease, Chronic Sinusitis, and Fibromyalgia. For clients in need of deep relaxation with or without therapeutic treatments, I am trained in Phenomenal Touch (Bruder Method) which is a 3D approach to the body.
I am a certified Safe Provider, and do not discriminate on the basis of color, gender expression or identity, nationality, or religion.
