Licensed Massage Therapist

As a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and Electrical Apprentice, I seamlessly blend my expertise in massage therapy with a background in electrical and administration industries to deliver comprehensive, holistic care to my clients. During my tenure at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, where I practiced from September 2023 to April 2024, I honed my skills in various modalities including Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Trigger Point Therapy. My goal has always been to facilitate relaxation, healing, and overall well-being for individuals seeking relief from daily stresses and physical discomfort.

My journey in both massage therapy and electrical work has been fueled by a commitment to continuous learning and growth. I’ve completed my training at Academy for Massage Therapy Training in San Antonio, Texas back in December 2021. The program provided me with valuable experience with their internship hours with real life experiences.

Bachelor of Science in Social Science from the University of Maryland Global Campus, certifications in Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED from the American Heart Association, and continuing education courses I am equipped with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills to deliver exceptional care to my clients. Whether it’s Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point therapy, or attentive client relations, I am committed to promoting wellness through touch and critical thinking. As a new therapist at Hands on Healing, I look forward to bringing healing and comfort to those seeking relief or relaxation.
