I look forward to custom-tailoring each massage session for every client/patient. I ultilize Swedish and deep tissue techniques, but I also have a passion for problem-focused therapeutic massage. I excel working with those who suffer from chronic back, neck and hip issues and how it relates to gait, athletic, and sports performance. I often integrate muscle tension relaxation techniques and trigger point therapy into my sessions.
With my ten years of body work experience, I carry my passion about the healing art of massage to every one of my clients. I will review your presenting muscular complaints and will tailor a massage session specific for you. I utilize multiple massage modalities from deep tissue, relaxing Swedish technique, hot stone therapy, trigger point work, table thai, and sports massage. I recently moved to L.A. from Texas where I was proud to be part of the physical rehabilitation team of the Major League Soccer team, FC Dallas. I received my pre-physical therapy training at Texas State University and completed my massage therapy training at Ace School of Massage Therapy in Texas.
My practice began in 1992 after completing my training from The Philips School of Massage in San Francisco. My unique style integrates my experience and knowledge from various continuing education workshops in several Western and Eastern modalities including Swedish, deep tissue and Trigger Point style massage, myofascial and connective tissue release, Shiatsu, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki and lymphatic massage therapy. I truly believe we all contain the innate capability to heal. I use an intuitive approach to create the ideal environment for your body to have a restoration of its wellness. Through my compassionate and non-judgmental listening, I will address your physical and energetic issues, guiding your body toward its own natural healing
I have dedicated my professional life to the satisfaction of spa clients. I acquired my massage training from California Healing Arts, and I am certificated by the California Massage Therapy Council. I combine my mastery of different massage techniques with pressure ranges from soft, to medium, to deep. I can provide a therapeutic healing session that makes minutes seem like hours of restful therapy.
I have been actively engaged in bodywork and movement for 15 years. After being certificated in an intensive 18-month massage program at Potomac Massage Training Institute, I received further training with AMBP and NCETMB-certification. I am well-versed in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Sports/stretching, Aromatherapy and a variety of other modalities to help relieve muscular stress, aid in relaxation and relieve pain. I am also proud of my work utilizing my skills with helping with survivor services for 11 years.
I have a lifelong passion for the world of beauty. With my training at The Academy for Salon Professionals and completion of over 600 hours of study, my specialities include Brazilian waxing, anti-aging and deep cleansing facials. I am also certified in facials for recovering clients undergoing delicate treatments. I am also committed to the total satisfaction of my clients, and instill in them a confidence of feeling naturally beautiful in their own skin without makeup. I pride myself on sharing my energy with my clients, and providing education on the latest tips and products that I personally have tested.
``I want to inspire others... I hope my passion for my craft encourages people to follow their dreams, reach their goals... Don't let anyone tell you, you can't just because they couldn't. Do what you love, dream big and make it all happen!``
I focus my peaceful, loving, and healing personality into every skin and body treatment.

I utilize my ten years of professional skin care experience to ensure you look good as well feel good, from the outside-in.
With over 16 years of experience in Chiropractic, my primary focus is the patient's progression to physical, nutritional, and mental balance in their daily lives. I earned my undergraduate degree from California State University Northridge with a specialization in Biology, and my Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College. My innate interest lies in technology and innovation as it relates to chiropractic and wellness. My philosophy is that every patient should not only progress with their treatment goals, but also given the tools to maintain wellness. This philosophy inspired me to create FRAIS SPA, complete with a well-rounded team of connected practitioners.
