A little history + purpose
I started Terra Massage + Wellness in 2012 as a small private practice with a big desire to share my passion for health and healing with the Tucson community + beyond. I truly believe the connection between provider and client (human + human) is a potent relationship capable of igniting health + well-being.
After completing a bachelor’s degree in exercise science + psychology (2006) and a master’s degree in art + visual culture education (2010), I didn’t have a clear understanding of what I wanted to do. I couldn’t find a job that I felt passionate about in the education sector, so I did what I felt most excited about. I went back to school to pursue a career as a bodyworker.
In 2011, I started working in a clinical setting with women and men with eating disorders, addictions, and trauma and began helping people heal in a way I related to on a deep level. I was excited to have found a job I was passionate about and a group of co-workers that supported me to do my own inner work at the same time. It was during this time that I realized I wanted to study massage and share bodywork as a healing modality.
In 2014 I became a certified Tre® provider and later, in 2015 I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program and began teaching yoga. Since 2006, I’ve held certification through ACSM as a personal trainer.
Most recently I graduated from the WellCoaches School of Coaching and now offer Wellness coaching + Goal-less coaching to private clients. I am most excited about the power of holding space for my fellow human beings; to witness transformation and healing from trauma and pain.
