My Massage Background

I was trained in massage therapy at West Coast College Of Massage Therapy & Hydrotherapy in British Columba Canada. I graduated from their 3,000 hour/3-year Registered Massage Therapist program in 2007 then went on to successfully complete my Provincial Board Examinations in B.C. just after graduation (R.M.T.).

Once I successfully completed these examinations the Washington State Department of Health recognized that designation and granted me a Washington State Massage Practitioner license (L.M.P). Prior to completing my provincial board examination I successfully completed the National Certification Board exam for therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTM).
