"Function maintains structure." - Thomas Hanna

I was born 1974 in Santa Barbara CA. I am a massage therapist who owns and operates a successful mobile massage business Central Coast Massage & Bodywork. I also work as an independent contractor for establishments in Santa Barbara and Ojai.

My singular goal is to help individuals young and old to understand that they are the biggest contributors to the quality of their health. That awareness of body alignment and its position in 3 dimensional space throughout the day affects tissue, muscle, bone and sensation.

In a nutshell

I combine the most effective elements of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu and Neuro-Structural Bodywork to tailor every treatment to each individual’s needs. With intuitive use of gentle stretches, acupressure points and firm, therapeutic pressure, my massage is deeply restorative, nurturing and refreshing.

I feel that receiving consistent massage therapy creates the opportunity and fulfillment for a more balanced life. Through understanding the human anatomy and each individual's needs, I am dedicated to helping clients reach their ultimate health goals with education, encouragement and compassion. I appreciate the importance in nurturing ourselves to sustain a balanced well-being and feel blessed to be a part of the process.

I received my training at Kali Institute for Massage & Somatic Therapies in Ventura CA. Areas of independent study and interest include song writing, cooking, hiking photography and web design.
