Meet Our Therapists
Tucked away in the heart of Uptown an oasis awaits.
SBT is an escape. A mini vacation from your daily grind.
Every member of our team has extensive training, study, and practical experience!
Massage and bodywork have been a fascination of mine from a very young age. I love the idea of giving someone a magical experience while healing and calming them at the same time.
I graduated from the Aveda Massage program in Minneapolis where my studies focused on Swedish massage, deep tissue, reflexology and trigger point therapy.
I have a background as a visual artist and feel massage is an extension of my art, the body being a canvas for soothing touch.
My interest to pursue a career in massage therapy was brought about through my passion to help others in conjunction with my curiosity to the concept of being able to facilitate healing of one’s body and mind from within. I followed my interest to the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy where I was trained in Swedish Massage, Myo-Facial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Shiatsu and Thai Massage. In addition, I am currently attending Augsburg University, where I am playing softball and pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science.
My interest in bodywork began when I felt called to help others, after my first transformative experience in healing myself. I graduated from Centerpoint Massage and Shiatsu Therapy School in 2008. Foremost modalities are Shiatsu, Swedish/Deep Tissue, Integrative Bodywork, and Thai Yoga Massage. Over the years I have added many additional techniques to my toolbox. My approach to bodywork is conscious, intuitive listening; coupled with technical knowledge of energetic meridians and anatomy. I operate from the perspective that the Mind (and) Body are innately connected; intentionally working to foster this Yin/Yang harmony and balance.
My grandmother, who began her bodywork career in the 90's, introduced me to holistic practices when I was young and inspired me to start my own path in the healing arts. I am a graduate of CenterPoint Massage Therapy & Shiatsu School & Clinic in St. Louis Park, MN. During my studies there, I was trained in the art of Swedish and Therapeutic massage techniques. Since then, I have continued to add new techniques to my tool box and I am interested in learning more about energy based modalities.
I believe each individual is on a unique life path and should be treated with a deep sense of respect. My goal is to work with you to create a bodywork experience that aligns with your holistic goals and aspirations. While I preserve the idea that each person is the master of their own healing; sometimes a helping hand is essential in allowing our body systems to drift into a space of serenity and healing discovery -- I look forward to walking with you on your healing journey!
I use my sense of touch as a tool for healing. Bodywork to me is an art form; it is healing and harmonising for the body, mind and spirit. Like music, massage when done passionately and from the heart may truly go beyond pain relief. It has the potential to re-balance, revitalise and heal from the inside out. I see myself as a channel; a conduit in helping you relax, re-centre and recharge. I am a student of life, apprenticing under my father who practiced bodywork and physical therapy for more than thirty years. I attended St Paul Technical College where I received my massage certification. My favourite modalities are relaxation, Swedish, integrative and therapeutic bodywork. Massage is more than a career to me; it is a way of life as I truly love what I do.
Massage Therapist / Studio Leader
My interest in therapeutic bodywork was first sparked by my mother who has been practicing Massage and Zen Shiatsu for over 25 years. I graduated from the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy after intensive training in Swedish Massage and Stretching and Joint Mobilization, Myo-Facial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue, Cranial-Sacral Therapy, Bodywork for Persons Experiencing PTSD, Thai Massage, Shiatsu and Oncology Massage/Compassionate Touch.
I have worked in Illinois at several massage/bodywork settings ranging from spas to athletic facilities and now I am so happy to be working with the incredible team here at Sabai Body Temple in Minneapolis. Whether you come in with a focus on relaxation or to relieve acute pain, my goal is to use my intuition and bodywork training to bring your mind, energy, and body into a sustainable state of balance.
