Education & Training

As the originator of Taos Therapeutic Massage Group, I am grateful to my teachers, mentors, clients and fellow massage therapists. Here is a description of my own bodywork background. Coming soon will be the histories of our other massage therapists here at TTMG.


The first professional massages I received were to treat a serious back injury in 1996. Through that injury I learned the humility of pain and disability and discovered the healing gift of manual medicine: therapeutic massage. As my back healed I enrolled in massage school. Since then I have developed a great passion for practicing massage and bodywork. Much of my learning comes day to day from my clients. However, I also love to learn more through clinical and classroom education from masters of manual medicine.


My training has been diverse. Here are some highlights:
