I am a Licensed, Certified Massage Therapist trained at Michigan Institute of Massage Therapy and Science. I have developed my own personal style and have been working in the field for 8 years. I have worked for chiropractors, doctors, and many spas.
It has been my dream to have my own spa. And finally my dreams came true! I opened Cloud 9 in December 2008.
I feel that each client utilizes massage therapy for different purposes as part of their own wellness program. Whether for general relaxation or to address a specific issue, my goal is to work with the client to design each session to meet their needs most effectively and provide a comfortable and energetic experience!
I have a personal relationship with most of my clients, I am a very spiritual person, so I try to incorporate that within my practice. I love my job and I believe my clients can feel that with each massage that they get from me.
I am committed to the care of others. I accept the challenge to assist your body in promoting good health by applying a systematic approach of manipulating soft tissue. I decided to get involved with medical and therapeutic massage for a number of reasons. It is an alternative medicine that I have personally benefited from during my recovery from a series of small strokes. The treatment helped my circulation and provided relief from muscle fatigue. I have always been interested in the healing aspect of massage and helping others. I graduated from the Blue Heron Academy of Healing Arts and Sciences in 2006. I am trained in acupressure, Castor oil treatments, gua shaw and relaxation. In addition, my passion and expertise are in Medical massage. Medical massage breaks up lactic acid build up in the muscles which cause tension and fatigue. Many of my clients have expressed an enhanced sense of well being after treatments. I am a mother of two and a grandmother of five. My grandchildren range in age from 1-7. They also receive and benefit from massages frequently. Massage has proven to be beneficial for children with ADHD. Giving the gift of massage to my clients is a passion of mine. The increase of blood and lymph flow aids in reducing and relieving sore muscle pain and tension. As well, it brings a sense of balance and stimulates the life energy within you.
I am a Chikara-Reiki-Do Master which includes the Usui and Tibetan Master energies of Reiki. My style of Reiki is a gentle hands on treatment that connects with the physical, emotional, mental, and astral energies of the body. Our bodies are made of energy and that energy can become blocked or imbalanced. The goal of my treatment is to align the 7 main energy points ( or chakras) of the body back into a positive balance and to promote a sense of relaxation and well being.
Reiki is a uniquely individual experience in relaxation. During the treatment you may feel tingling, pulsing, or an increase in warmth in the area being treated. Some people may feel none of these sensations but instead feel rested and reenergized. Please dress comfortably as a Reiki session is normally given with the person fully clothed laying on a massage table as I complete a deep meditation that includes a series of hand postions on or just above the body.
Reiki is not a massage, a religion, nor a substitute for medical care.
I became a Reiki Master because I have personally felt the positive effects of Reiki in my life and wish to share that feeling and connection with everyone else.
