About me...

I grew up in Mexico City where I was exposed to homeopathic medicine and other alternative methods frequently used by doctors and other medical professionals. I would accompany my grandmother to the market every other day and make freshly cooked meals with a variety of vegetables and herbs. Lots of memories in the garden with her. At seven years old, I moved to freezing Chicago and faced a different reality. Western medicine was much more different, and things in the U.S were very systematic when it came to healthcare. My senior year at the age of sixteen, I began working for a hospital in Illinois where I stayed for two and a half years. Soon after graduating high school, as I was preparing for my move to California,  I studied for my phlebotomy certification and PT aide certification. The two and a half years I worked at the hospital were very eye opening and changed my life forever. I could not in good conscience work for ANY organization that takes advantage of people and profits. When I moved to California with my husband, I was unable to find a job even with my two certificates and qualifications. It took over a year, where I was hired by Body In Balance Physical Therapy as an aide, I stayed for three years and transitioned my way into a therapist through massage school. I learned so much working alongside the physical therapist-skills I'm able to apply now in my own practice.  

In May of 2016 I graduated from the National Holistic Institute of Massage Therapy and officially became a neuromuscular massage therapist and health educator, and in September 2016 I inaugurated Safe Space Bodywork with my husband​. I am thankful for every person I can help and will continue to shine the light wherever I am needed.      

Mission Statement: Quality of life. How do you want to live your remaining years? That is my goal ; to ensure that through massage therapy and health education, every person leaving my studio can enjoy a better quality of life.
