Massage Therapist

My passion as a massage therapist is to help people in their pursuit to feel their best. I specialize in Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Sports Massage, CranioSacral and Myo-fascial therapies. I have a strong intuitive sense that is helpful in moving energy and addressing muscular issues. I also have confidence in my abilities to assist people in their healing process. Breath work is vital to a healthy, active and balanced body, and it is a key component of my practice. Massage and breath work are very important in the release of toxins and in bringing awareness to the body.

With a skilled therapeutic touch and a focused intention, I put others at ease while addressing their needs. I have an honest nature. I am a good communicator, and I consider myself a hard worker. My pursuit into massage therapy is continually reaffirmed by the impact it has on my clients, and I am eager to serve others in their journey towards optimal health.

Upon my quest for the right career choice, I reflected on my own experiences in receiving massages, acupuncture, and CranioSacral and naturopathic care. These therapies have been an important part of my self-care for over 15 years, and they have therefore lead me passionately into this field. My personal experiences have enabled me to continue to strive, and educate myself to be the best massage therapist possible. My clients know my commitment and it resonates. The impact that bodywork has had on my clients and my family is tremendous. The knowledge and awareness other health care professionals have provided for me in my lifetime is profound, and I am hopeful to give back as much as I have received through the years.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and I am the youngest of nine children. My personal interests include cooking from a variety of magazines and cookbooks, all forms of music and self expression, as well as health, exercise and nutrition. I am also a lover of the outdoors and enjoy exploring the many splendors that Oregon has to offer.

I am excited to have a career in something that I feel so well suited for and passionate about. I am equally excited to have joined the Dr. Dot team and look forward to working with you!
