"I enjoy my practice as a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1995.  And I love teaching these public massage classes for families for nearly as long since my mother taught basic strokes to me at home.

Teaching parents to massage their babies is a special love and as an International Trainer of Infant Massage teachers/educators with the Int'l Assoc. of Infant Massage, USA chapter, Int'l hq Sweden since 2005, I love it even more.

We believe in the importance of massage and positive touch for people's daily life.
