Hi! I have been a massage therapist at Options 4 Health since 2005. I am an Illinois State Licensed Massage Therapist and a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). I graduated from The Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 2004 and have additional training in CranioSacral Therapy as well as certification in Bodywork for the Childbearing Year®, prenatal and postnatal massage and Reiki Master Teacher. I am excited to provide you with exceptional massage therapy solutions to help improve your health and vitality. Prior to attending massage therapy school, I earned a B.A. in Behavioral Science from National Louis University in 1993 and worked with the Developmentally Challenged as well as a Health Educator. I chose a career in massage therapy simply because I strongly believe in the healing power of touch. I believe my diverse background and experience helps me to help you meet your massage therapy goals! First and foremost, I became a massage therapist because I have a firm belief in and respect for the power of human touch. It is my intention that massage be professional, thoughtful and respectful and born out of the idea that on a base level, human touch should begin with the intent to promote kindness, compassion and nurturing.
