As a college athlete at San Francisco State University, I was under the impression that the pain and injuries that I suffered were permanent. It wasn't until after I received my first massage, as a massage student, that I became ecstatic at discovering its healing power.
Receiving regular massage strengthened my joints, helping to recover from my old injuries. As the pain began to subside, I only wished I had known about massage sooner, certainly while I was a practicing athlete.
Becoming a professional therapist was a natural fit for me! I graduated with honors at the top of my class as I completed over 720 hours of training. Shortly afterwards I opened Relax and Renew Massage.
As a massage therapist it is my privilege to aid the body in its direction towards better well-being. Massage is a powerful tool for sustaining life's many stresses in today's busy world. Massage has brought me the understanding that the body knows how to heal itself.
