My interest in massage began as a young child. My father was a carpenter and would come home with body aches, cramps and tension. He often wanted me to step on his back to help him feel better. I appreciated the response to my "therapy" back then, because he'd always come away feeling soothed and relaxed. While I really didn't know what I was doing or how it was working, the results sparked a deeper interest in massage for me. As the years went on, I got way too big to step on his back so I started pressing his back where he would feel knots or tenderness. Soon it became second nature. I could easily feel and attend to the areas requiring attention. I also learned how to do specialty massage from my aunt on the Big Island of Hawaii. She was taught by her husband, my uncle, who was considered an "Hawaiian Natural Healer". I learned a few techniques to help out my mom who also suffered from various muscle spasms and other tension and stress related headaches. My love to help people and make them feel better inspired me to attend a specialty school to learn new techniques and skills that could help me be the best at what I enjoyed most.
I am a very social and outgoing person. I love to meet new people and constantly learn new things. This helps immensely during my massage sessions as I am aware of the importance of my customers' satisfaction and relaxation.
