I offer massage to people with a variety of conditions: cancer, emphysema, fibromyalgia, lymphedema, MS, neurological problems and others. It is my desire to give a comfortable massage to people who may have chronic or severe physical illnesses. With more than 2000 hours of training, I will help you to get the maximum benefit from massage or manual lymph drainage (MLD). As a Certified Lymphedema therapist, I can offer manual lymph drainage or complete decongestive therapy. It is useful for a variety of conditions including post trauma, post surgical edema, and primary or secondary lymphedema.
If you want comforting and caring massage or Reiki for recovery from illness or injury, maintenance or for relaxation, I can help.

Bio
I graduated from the Oregon School of Massage in 2002. Shortly after graduation, I was certiifed as a Neuromuscular Therapist. I am a Board Certified Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworker (BCTMB) and a Certified Lymphedema Therapist through Klose Training and Consulting. I have additional training in Breast Rehabilitation for people who have had breast cancer which resulted in axillary web syndrome or radiation fibrosis. I volunteered in the Hematology/Oncology Infusion clinic at Oregon Health Science University (OHSU), Center for Health and Healing for four years. The experience was among my most treasured. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Marylhurst University, focusing on Healthcare and Human Sciences and a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Metaphysical Sciences.
