In 1988, on the recommendation of a friend, I registered for a class in Reiki. At the time I knew nothing about Reiki, but soon realized that this healing technique was somehow familiar—like coming home. I’ve continued to practice and be at home in Reiki ever since.
My interest in massage was piqued by two years of practicing Reiki and I was licensed as a Massage Therapist in 1990. In 1994, I became a Reiki Master and it has been my honor and privilege to teach others to use and share this energetic practice ever since.
I was introduced to Lomilomi through a therapist in Kauai who changed my life. The treatment I received from her felt more profound than anything I had learned or practiced. She referred me to her Kumu (teacher) in Seattle and it has been my great privilege to be able to study Lomilomi massage with her for more than 20 years.
My practice focuses on helping people heal; the techniques I use are Lomilomi (Hawaiian) Massage, Reiki, CranioSacral Therapy and Lymphatic Drainage. I also train in Dynamic Energetic Healing® affiliated with Dynamic Energetic Healing International™.
I offer personal treatments and couples massage; teach Reiki classes and workshops; facilitate, co-facilitate, teach and sponsor classes, workshops, and retreats in Salem and other locations throughout the year. I believe that learning never ends – life is changing all the time, and I feel it’s important to stay current. I continue to study the healing arts, focusing on the techniques and modalities that move me, and which I believe will make a strong difference in the lives of my clients.
