Massage: A healthy investment

Pressure Points


There was a time, long, long ago, when I thought that massage therapy was enjoyed only by a privileged few who had the money to waste on such a frivolous luxury. This was my attitude until I began having issues with my back, shoulders and started suffering from severe migraines. When conventional medicine had no practical answers in treating me, I turned to the world of natural health. Massage therapy was a form of body work that brought me great relief. I am the type of person that when I find a practical solution to a problem, I like to share it with others. I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy because: (1) It proved to be a major, practical solution to my physical issues and I wanted to share it with others; (2) I love to help people feel better; (3) I love to work with my hands and; (4) I was tired of working behind a desk, staring at a computer all day. It was taking a toll on my posture, my eyes and it was compounding my migraines.

I firmly believe the body is capable of being well and healthy if given the opportunity with the proper tools and environment. It is also very important to be proactive with your health and to address potential problems before they become chronic. This is where regular massage comes in to play.

Truth: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I had reached a point in my working career where it was time to make a change, a healthy change. I enrolled in massage therapy school at the California Holistic Institute in San Luis Obispo Ca. I completed my training, received state certification and started a practice at the central coast. That was three years ago. The need to help take care of aging parents brought my family and my practice to Tehachapi in March 2014. I immediately was able to establish my practice in the Natural Health Massage & Spa where I am now co-owner. I truly desire to help rid people of their aches and pains. It is my passion to be able to create an atmosphere that will promote wellness and touch lives in a positive way. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, give massage therapy a try…

You won’t be disappointed.
