Through my practice, content and curated spaces, I offer you love.
Through my practice, we can be space, we can be warmth, we can be healing, cleansing, protective, expansif & amplifying. Choosing to uphold ancestral values keep me grounded, rooted, optimistic and expansive. I get to be with the past, the present, and the future at the same time. I get to play with water, earth, air and fire - with light, colors, texture, sound, and scents. I can be space, I can be warmth, I can be healing, cleansing, protective, invasive & amplifying.
I began my massage journey while working as an esthetician doing skin care, nail care, and hair removal. At the time, I was asked to give some of the relaxing massages where I worked because it was similar to giving body wraps and scrubs. It was after my third client or so, I knew I wanted to dedicate myself in massage. At the time, I was already fascinated with the vast universe of holistic medicine, so this was my ticket in. Each body is a universe in itself: it has different timelines, experiences, comforts, strengths & weaknesses.
After my first 400 hours of training, I was excited to share my skills with my elders and the elders of immigrant families of color because I knew and understand the struggles of their hard labor. But it was only in 2019 when I discovered traditional Filipino medicine and the Filipino North American diaspora. That's when I really began my healing with being Filipino and society. My massage journey has given me SO much, and I want to share that magic with as many people as I can.
