Whether you're recovering from an injury, dealing with neuropathy, fibromyalgia, or arthritic pain, need help managing lymphedema, or simply want to relax beyond everyday stress, you will find help here.
The fluid systems are the primary focus of my practice, specifically lymph and cerebrospinal fluid. I began my training in Craniosacral Therapy 26 years ago and initially became a licensed massage therapist in order to work with the craniosacral system. Fifteen years later I began a long training in Lymphatic Therapies. As a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and compression garment fitter since 2008, I specialize in Breast Cancer Treatment Related Lymphedema
I was introduced to what is now called Photobiomodulation - the current term for cold laser/low level laser therapy - a few years ago while looking for pain relief and healing for an arthritic knee. This modality is effective in treating some aspects of lymphedema as well as arthritic joints, injuries, neuropathy, and inflammation.
Initially, my training in Integrative Bodywork began some 35 years ago with shiatsu, Japanese massage, acupuncture, and Kiryuho in Tokyo.
I have been Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork for more than 20 years. Before settling in Tucson in 2001, I had the honor of learning from indigenous healers and herbalists while I worked with international health and education programs in the US, Asia, and Africa.
