I am an AFAA certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, a Massachusetts licensed massage therapist (#16003), Reiki practitioner and is certified in Integrated Energy Therapy. I believe that the fitness journey can begin at any age. I also feel it is important to work with a trainer that is similar in age. Being in my 50's, I understand that you don't have to do "crazy" things to get in the best physical shape. I feel safety and good form are of upmost importance. My approach incorporates the five components of fitness – strength, endurance, flexibility, cardio activity, and a healthy diet. I also believe in a holistic approach which combines mind, body, and spirit to contribute to overall wellness and improved quality of life.
My career in fitness and health began from a background in dance. I've worked in the fitness industry since 1980 and have trained individuals of all ages with varied abilities ranging from the novice to athlete. I also teach regular group classes in strength, flexibility, toning, aerobics, core stability, and bootcamp.
To complement my fitness background, I became a licensed massage therapist in Massachusetts. My massage services include Swedish, deep tissue, sport and chair massage; relaxation, therapeutic and pain management; Reiki and spa treatments. My massage background has been extremely helpful with facilitated stretching with clients and also helping with daily aches and pains! Recently, I opened Every Bodies Massage located in Framingham, MA. I also work at the Spa in Whitinsville and State of Grace Wellness.
I frequently attends programs and courses keep informed and expand my knowledge in the fitness and massage fields. I'm a graduate of the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy (Worcester), holds a B.S. in Education, is CPR certified and insured.
