I am a professionally trained massage therapist and Reiki master. I have studied in-depth courses in anatomy, physiology, and swedish massage as well as a variety of complimentary energy techniques. I came to practice massage after more than twenty five years of holistic living and a growing desire to help others do the same.
"Hopeakuu" is the Finnish word for "silvermoon." I use it as a nod to my Finnish heritage. The traditions of my ancestors have inspired and guided me through much of my life. It is here that I find my love for nature and using my kitchen as a place to make healthy meals and herbal preparations. I am also a photographer, and the mother of a fine young man. I find my peace while spending time in nature and nurturing my intuition.
