I was born and raised in San Francisco with a passion for creating art. I worked in the toy design industry for many years, and found myself asking, "What am I really doing to help others?" Growing up, I learned first hand about eastern philosophies and medicines from my grandmother, but it wasn't until a meditation course I took years later, that I became aware of my own ability to create and heal. I started to create a life more fulfilling. I started healing my spirit. I became a massage therapist.
The name "PlayGround Zen" combines my passion for art, creativity, healing and inner peace. Massage therapy allows me to tap in to these energies to help others in the best way that I can.
Healing the body opens the mind and grounds your energy, allowing you to have more clarity, be more creative, breathe deeper, love yourself more, and savor life to the fullest.
