It has been a joy working as our Spa Director and lead massage therapist since we opened. My greatest source of satisfaction is seeing my client’s quality of life improve. I love to see them feeling better both emotionally and physically after each session, and then taking that home. It is also rewarding helping to create a wonderful work environment for my fellow employees and to establish the highest level of care here at The Spa. We all look forward to making sure you feel cared for, revitalized, and significantly lighter when you leave.
As a Professional Licensed Massage Therapist it is my privilege to do body work that becomes part of your story. The story of how you can take full responsibility for your well-being. The story about how you can sleep better at night and have more energy during the day. About how you are managing pain, stress, and anxiety better. I am not promising miracles, but I am promising to listen and treat you with the personal care you need and deserve. I want to share this simple beautiful healing art with you so that you can experience the personal gains that I have in my own life.
My fundamental belief as a therapist is that the body never lies. For over two decades, listening to and communicating with the human body-mind has been my great honor. From treatment of physical injury to facilitating recovery through Five-Element Somatic Therapy, my career has been a journey of how to best bring compassionate touch, non-judgement, and a return to wellness for those in my care. My work represents a collaboration of many layers of traditions and practices, and is intuitive and consciously rooted in how the body presents in this moment. I look forward to our adventure ahead.
I believe in the body’s ability to heal itself and my goal is to assist with this process. Through listening to the body and thoughtful communication I aim to provide the ideal environment for your body to relax and unwind. I am trained in Swedish massage, foot reflexology, cranial sacral unwinding, Chinese medicine, Polarity therapy, hot stones and am a Certified Aromatherapist. With a combination of scents, music, and focusing on your comfort and relaxation, I enjoy creating a warm, relaxing environment to create a deep relaxing state just for you.
I recently moved to the islands from Colorado. I was very happy to get a great job working here at Earthbox as an Esthetician and Sugarist (hair removal). I love providing services that can help boost an individuals confidence. Everyone is unique including their skin, so I strive to take the time to make sure I provide exactly what each client needs and deserves--the best. My hope is that each client walks away feeling well taken care of and nurtured.
I am a seventh-generation San Juan Islander and have been in practice for 20 years. I am the Spa's lead esthetician and nail technician and specialize in skin analysis, facials and nail care. I love to provide custom facials for long term results, incorporating my extensive skin-care product knowledge and nutritional training to provide you personalized skin-care support with amazing results. I look forward to taking great care of you--from head to toe!
Having lived on San Juan Island for over 40 years, I have become very accustomed to the peace and pace, the ebb and flow of this beautifully natural setting. As an experienced Massage Practitioner of 28 years, I have developed varied and effective modalities that reflect the peace and comfort of this amazing environment. I offer a full range of techniques from gentle Reiki energetic work to effective and sensitive deep tissue therapeutic work to the Earthbox Signature Spa treatments. I see each client as unique and my massage work is reliably customized to fit each individual's needs.
