My massage career blossomed out of a deep fascination with the body-mind-spirit connection. At university I earned a self-designed B.A. in Cross-Cultural Healing, focusing on universal principles of healing. My direct exploration of healing and consciousness was found through yoga and meditation. After traveling and exploring the world, I ended up falling in love with massage at Heartwood Institute, a residential healing arts school in the mountains of Northern California. My five years at Heartwood was a unique opportunity to study with excellent bodywork instructors, and learn many massage modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Polarity, Craniosacral, Somatic Emotional Release, Trigger Point, and Myofascial.
In 2008 I moved to Kona, Hawai’i. Living here in Hawai’i Nei is such a gift, and I am so grateful to be here. I have been blessed to study the Hawaiian healing art of Lomilomi massage with many different kumu (teachers). In the spirit of giving back to the Hawaiian culture, which has given me so much, I donate 5% of my earnings from Healing Alchemy to support indigenous Hawaiian causes.
I see every client I work with is a reflection of the Divine. When I work with you I am completely present, listening, and inviting you to open further to your own healing. What I offer is far beyond just “massage.” It is profoundly balancing and a catalyst for healing on all levels. I take care of my own health so that I can bring you the absolute best I have to offer. I am here to support you on your healing journey. Whether you are in pain and looking to find a way out, or you are already doing well and want to expand your capacity to embody bliss, I’m here for you.
