I am a licensed massage professional in the State of New Jersey; certified with the American Red Cross in CPR/AED. I am also a member in good standing of the American Massage Therapy Association. (http://www.amtamassage.org)
I started my training at Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, MA. The 900-hour program focused on learning the Benjamin System of Muscular Therapy; a protocol pioneered by Ben Benjamin, a leader in the field of bodywork and professional ethics. My studies also included Swedish, sports, chair and prenatal massage, myofascial and trigger point therapy, Eastern bodywork among others. My work as a therapist intertwines various modalities as it may apply to each individual client.
After receiving my degree in 2002, I went on to study Reflexology and Reiki I and II. I was introduced to CranioSacral Therapy at a intensive workshop with Dr. Ron Wish of Nyack, NY in 2015. I continue to take classes in response to the needs of my clients and my desire for ongoing professional growth. My commitment to learning only grows.
I enjoy working in the vibrant, diverse and caring community of Montclair. There's no place I'd rather be...well, maybe France....but I'll take Montclair until then!
