How many years have you been a Massage Therapist?
I have been lucky to have spent the last 20 years working as a healthy and strong full time massage therapist.

Why did you become a Massage Therapist?
I knew I wanted a career that could help people and make them feel better. I needed a career that involved movement and working with people. I feel so lucky and privileged to have a career that provides me joy and pride. I receive so much enjoyment and satisfaction in providing massage therapy to my clients. It is a gift to make people feel better.

Do you have an area of special interest? 
I have a specific interest in fascia and how stress affects our entire body and mind. How everything we do in our movement and thoughts affects us in a positive or negative way. How amazing and resilient we are as humans and that we can live healthier and happier lives with small adjustments to our thoughts and movement patterns.

How does movement impact your life?
Movement brings me joy, happiness and is a crucial tool for my mental health. I love practising yoga, lifting weights, dancing, biking and running.

What does a great massage therapist look like to you?
A great massage session involves communication and respect. It is always about what the client on the table need to feel less stressed and healthier. That might mean less or more pressure, good music, more heat or less heat and different techniques. I always tell me clients that their appointment is about them not me and to let me know what they want from our appointment.
