Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist
I am a Colombia, South American native brought into the United States by my parents at the age of 2 1/2. I grew up in Queens, New York and moved down to North Carolina 28 years ago. I have loved North Carolina since the day I moved here. I speak fluent Spanish and welcome all of my Hispanic patriots to come and receive massage from someone who understands not only their language but also their culture. For me, the desire to become a massage therapist began with a calling from God to use this time in my life to effect positive change in the lives of others by using healing touch to impart faith to others for healing. This calling came as a result of my own healing experience from RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have been excellently trained in massage therapy by Body Therapy Institute in Siler City, North Carolina. I am in my 7th year of working as a Massage Therapist. I love bodywork and all it represents in terms of the healing potential from the physical, psychological, emotional, and energetic expressions of the art form. I believe in the healing power of human, natural, and especially spiritual resources and use them through the body’s sensibility to accomplish therapeutic release for my clients. I fell in love with the work and my passion for it is renewed with each client that I meet. I offer Mobile, Chair, Swedish, Hot Stones, Prenatal, Reflexology and Lymphatic massage modalities, as well as, Aroma Touch for all ages including seniors, teens, and children.
