I graduated from Austin Massage Academy in March 2021. I enjoy helping people feel good, and I'm fascinated by the healing touch of bodywork on the human body and mind. I do Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, hot stones, chair massage, cupping, and Gua-Sha. I have a gentle touch and excel in full-body relaxation massage. I have a strong interest in learning new modalities to get better at my skill, such as mat base Thai massage/shiatsu and Lomi Lomi.
Growing up in a Chinese household, I’ve been taught to do cuppings and Gua- Sha by my grandmother as home remedies at a young age. I like to work with clients to find out their specific massage goals and work within their preferred pressure range to find ways to achieve that goal. I have a gentle touch and excel in full-body relaxation massage.
My favorite film is everything produced by Studio Ghibli. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, gaming, indoor bouldering, practicing kung-fu, and playing with my dog Chiquita and two cats Loki and Freya.
