I've been giving people massage since I was five years old, but I became a licensed massage therapist in 2002 after attending Ashmead School of Massage in Seattle. I have attended numerous continuing education courses over the years. Some of which include medical massage for the neck, low back and extremities; trigger point therapy, sports massage, zero polarity therapy, thai massage, pregnancy massage, cranio sacral therapy, lymphatic drainage, professional ethics, and animal massage.
I also went to school at the Northwest School of Animal Massage and became a licensed massage therapist for large and small animals. I am a nationally board certified massage therapist and I am licensed to work in Washington, Montana, and Virginia. I love to travel and help people as often as I can.
After traveling around the United States for four and a half months, I landed in Charlottesville, Virginia and made it my primary residence in February of 2021. I have strong hands and a warm heart. I love to make my clients laugh, but I am also happy to be quiet for the entire session. It's really just about meeting people where they're at and providing the best service possible. I am in network with Regence, Aetna, Cigna and United in Washington State, but will be a cash based practice in Virginia.
As well as being a massage therapist, I have been an elementary and middle school teacher. I have a BA and Masters in education as well as a Waldorf teaching certificate. I also have a post graduate degree in equine assisted learning. I've used this knowledge to begin a transformation coaching program for equestrians which focuses on increasing their connection to themselves, their horse, and other people. I can also help people who don't own horses. For more information on what a transformation coach is and how I can help you; check out www.dreames-lifecoaching.com. Thank you for your time and interest. I look forward to meeting you soon.
