Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB)
Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork is the highest voluntary
credential a massage therapist can obtain within the profession—it is above and beyond entry level state licensure. By becoming Board Certified, I represent a community of therapists who have gone above standard educational and work experience requirements with a dedicated and lifelong commit to continuing education. Furthermore, I live up to higher standards and ethics in alignment with The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
To achieve my Board Certification, I provided proof of a minimum of 750 hours of education, 250 hours of professional, hands-on work experience, passed a criminal background check, agreed to uphold NCBTMB's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and passed the Board Certification Exam. By passing the BCETMB and meeting all requirements, I demonstrate advanced assessment and critical thinking skills, as well as a commitment to excellence. I wear the credentials BCTMB with pride for myself, my profession, and, most importantly, my clients.
I have been a LMT since 2001 and I have over 900 hours of education and I have over 18,000 hours of professional, hands on work experience so far

There are many benefits people realize through the practice of Transformational Breath® These benefits include improved physical health, cleared emotional wounds and enhanced mental capabilities. Many have also found a stronger connection to spirit while cultivating a greater awareness of the breath and self. Your life can open up and become more fulfilling through the practice of Transformational Breath®
How does Transformational Breath® work?
As your facilitator I will use proven gentle movement, sound vibration techniques and simple core affirmations so that you achieve and maintain the wave-like "full circular breath" pattern. This activates a high frequency of electromagnetic vibration throughout the body and mind. According to the scientific principle of Entrainment, low frequency energy patterns are raised and transformed in the presence of the higher frequency energy state. This clears blockages within the energy systems.
TBr can be done individually, couples and in groups.
