have had the honor and privilege of owning a very
successful Rolfing® business in Newport Beach for
31 years. However, the time has come for me to close
my business and move to Arizona. I welcome new clients
who live in or come to Tucson. I’m still using my
Ca. cell phone number 949-240-4580.
Thank you, Cheryl
introduction to the profession of massage therapy
began 32 years ago while I was living in Hawaii.
At that time, I became acquainted with one of the
Big Island's renowned massage therapists, lovingly
called "Aunty Margaret" who taught me
"Lomi Lomi" massage. My experience with
Aunty Margaret led me to study with several "Kahunas"
(Hawaiian healers) including a legendary surfer
named Rabbit Kekai who taught me a technique termed
the "Japanese Ogasaki" technique. For
the next 10 years, I continued to study massage
and worked with and under several experts in massage
In addition, I continued expanding my professional
background by working with an osteopath and utilizing
my massage background to assist in the healing of
patients. Specifically, I worked with many patients
who had been in various types of accidents and learned
several techniques that helped alleviate their individual
struggles with pain.
During my first year as a licensed massage therapist,
I was introduced to Rolfing®, a technique that I
consider to be the most sophisticated and all-encompassing
Rolfing® technique on the planet! In 1988, I returned
to Newport Beach from Hawaii to pursue training
in this specialized field. And, in 1989, I opened
my office in Newport Beach to serve clients as a
Rolfer® and overall Massage Therapist. And, over
the last 20 years, I've kept active with advanced
studies in Rolfing® and studies in NLP (Neurolinguist
Programming). I have been certified as an Integrative
Coach by the Debbie Ford Institute. Currently, I
am studying materials developed by Dr. Caroline
Leaf who is a leading NeuroMetacognitive Learning
Specialist. Her studies involve brain research,
learning combined with spirituality.
My broad background in these healing modalities
have proven to be most rewarding in assisting my
clients to access their total mind/body/spirit connection.
It is my goal to help each individual client achieve
an optimum, balanced life through the techniques
that I have mastered.
