After completing my BA in Digital Art in 2008 at ASU, I felt the calling to seek deeper ways of offering healing and creative experiences, outside the walls of academia. I stepped out from behind the computers and cameras to begin a journey into the world of holistic healing arts. I have experienced powerful transformation through inviting simple every day rituals of creativity, self care, and body celebration of self in my own life. From that sprung a business that would combine my knowledge of both visual arts and body focused modalities - to support others in creating their own rituals centered around self care, adornment, and self celebration.
I studied massage therapy at the East West College of Healing Arts where my passion for dance spurred a deeper study of anatomy and kinesiology. To further my knowledge as a movement instructor and better support clients in their own healing movement process, I also received a 200 hour yoga teacher training from the Lotus Seed School of Yoga. I approach each bodywork session as a healer as well as teacher, believing that what clients do between sessions is just as important as the work we do together. I offer a holistic massage which seeks to offer your body a pathway to healing itself through the path of greatest ease. Incorporating methods from deep tissue, structural bodywork, Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage, and Thai Massage, to release pain and free pathways of movement in the body and mind.
I am driven by a lifelong curiosity of ritual body adornment, from henna to tattooing and ritual body modification. As early as I can remember I was drawing tattoos on myself, playing with henna cones from the local market. Driven to take this practice to a more professional level, I began a henna apprenticeship with Melanie Ooi of Blue Lotus Henna in 2012, and have remained a passionate student of henna body adornment ever since. In 2020, after an inspiring trip to India to film the World of Henna Documentary with Melanie, I followed my childhood fantasy and became a licensed tattoo artist, beginning a new chapter in the world of body adornment. It is with gratitude and respect that I participate in these ancient traditions of body modification and decoration. It is incredible to see the transformative power of both henna and tattooing, and an honor to participate in unique, important life moments with my clients.
