Born and raised in the state of Florida
I attended the Spectrum Center School of Massage from September 2016 to June 2017.
Graduated with 740 hours, education in Swedish techniques, Deep Tissue, and Injury Treatments. Along with special classes where some sparked my interest in continuing or being certified into: Reflexology, the work of hands and feet to stimulate other parts of the body. Polarity, the work of another persons body energy to correct its flow and alignment. Manuel Lymphatic Drainage, a technique used to clear the human body's lymphatic system of toxicants and wastes.
While I was in school, I came across having the experience of Cupping. Honestly I was in complete amazement of how much it helped with my own muscle problem. Rather than pressing down on the clients muscles, massage cupping uses suction to to tug the skin, tissues and muscles upwards. Promoting the flow of blood to the muscles and tissues, and removing stagnation. Softening the tightened muscles, and loosening of adhesions and knots.
Even though Cupping was not an extra learning class, it's definitely an addition I am adding to my practice.
Along with my interest in Massage Therapy, I came across essential oils that other massage therapists have used in their practice. Not just the oils, but also the creams, lotions, salves, and tea. So I decided to do some research into the herbal world. I discovered that a lot of common known herbs are used in oils and lotions as massage lubrication to stimulate (or stir up) the human body's natural healing ability, and some are used for more specific type of healing, such as migraines, muscle relaxation, etc. So I decided to enrich my know-how in the area of herbal uses to add into my practice as well.
My drive is to find ways of helping the human body heal itself as naturally as it possibly can without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.
The way Nature intended for body to heal, and the way Nature wanted to help in it's purest form.
