Massage therapist; personal trainer; ski instructorI was born and raised in Transylvania – Romania. I graduated with a degree in Exercise Science and worked as a Badminton coach for over 10 years training athletes for Romanian National Team. Also worked as a ski instructor and P.E. teacher, and in 2005 I studied and acquired my certification in massage from a Massage School in Brasov, Romania, and later some classes at Bodhi Tree Massage School in Carson City. In 2002 came to the United States seeking an adventure and the opportunity to teach skiing at Northstar - at - Tahoe. Falling in love with Tahoe first, and later with my now husband, in 2009, I decided to make Tahoe my home and moved to Carson City.
I’ve been practicing massage therapy through both, public and private practice, for over 10 years now. Because of my degree in Exercise Science I have the advantage of knowing and understanding the human body’s structure and functionality in great detail. I am very systematic, technical, and case specific in the application of my skills to each client. I attempt to satisfy each client’s needs to the best of my ability. I specialize in various modalities/techniques like: Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Positional Releases, Ortho-bionomy, Acupressure, Heated Stones, Essential Oils, etc.
In addition to the affect of my massage work my experience and schooling (Exercise Science, Coach, certified Personal Trainer - with specialties in Post rehabilitation, Pre/Post natal exercise, weight loss, etc) provide the opportunity to make recommendations about different exercises and stretches that will help relieve chronic pains and aches. Lastly, my technical and practical knowledge is further enhanced through the application of my Energy Healing training techniques.
