While a college student I hosted a community class in massage. My teacher wrote the best-selling book ever written on massage. Back then I built my first massage table out of plywood (now long gone, photo below). In the years since I've had extensive training at Esalen, including anatomy for massage, advanced Esalen massage, Esalen massage with hot stones, etc.(diplomas below).
My training in advanced lomi lomi was with Carrie Rowell, who teaches in Hawaii.
I am licensed in California as a Certified Massage Therapist.
