I have over 2 years experience as a massage therapist at Banyan Tree Spa & Resort in Thailand.

I use massage therapy as a tool to reduce pain, relax tight muscles and promote healing. If you need to detox, I highly recommend a manual lymphatic drainage. If you have muscle tightness, ask me about stretching exercises. If you have muscle weakness, reduced range of motion or tingling or numbness or a limp, ask me about a myotonic and neurotonic assessment.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, reading and shopping. I truly enjoy working with such an amazing team at Serene Escapes.
