I originally hail from the rainforests & beaches of Australia and now call Truckee my permanent home.
My travels have taken me through-out Asia, sampling health treatments from Balinese 5-star resorts to blind Nepalese holy-men. I have practiced healed at natural therapy centres, sports clinics, medi-spas, ski resorts and my own home studios.
I enjoy massaging so much that I miss it when I don't do it! I give a truly deep tissue massage without the usual pain & discomfort people usually associate with this therapy. I beleive that the aim of massage is to get the muscles and central nervous system to relax & release so your body's self-healing mechanisms can work at their optimum. This is attained by finding that perfect pressure...go too deep and the muscles contract..the exact opposite of what we are trying to achieve!
A range of clients seek my services, including:
Professional athletes integrating massage into their training
Pregnant mothers supporting their bodies before & after birthing their children
High-stress business people keeping their sanity & avoiding heart attack
Birthday recipients getting a special treat
Injured clients wanting a speedy recovery
People in need of nurturing through a challenging period of life
Mature clients managing back complaints & degenerative ailments
Computer users wishing to correct their posture
