From Desperation to Healing
Sharing my story at Toast Masters in Boca Raton, FL
I wanted to share with you the story of my humble beginnings and my passion for the path I have chosen.
Massage Therapy has been the most rewarding journey, and I hope my story can inspire others to achieve their dreams. Nothing is impossible and never give up, when we give selflessly we receive so much more in return, I feel truly blessed.

Hot and Cold Stone Massage Set
The innovation of introducing hot and cold therapy to the wellness and aesthetic industry has its ancient roots as far back as the 19th century.
Doctor Sebastian Kneipp introduced a method that allows the body to become stronger through thermal and mechanical effects.
The temperature of our skin is such that making it reach different temperatures, different sensations and reactions will be produced by introducing hot and cold.
by the 21st century we introduced hot and cold stone therapy used to affect the body's nervous system, it reacts by influencing the gastric and hormone secretions.
The stimulus will also travel to a related organ or other destination in the body, cold stimulates and hot slows internal activity.
Let the stone do the work for you.
The Spa and Wellness Industry is evolving rapidly, contributing to its success is stone massage, and the fact that it can be incorporated into so many different modalities.
Whether through relaxation or more targeted services Stone Massage has been a popular item on service menus for the past decade and a half.
The average burnout time for a massage therapist is approximately five years.
I would like to point out to you that proper training in the correct use of body mechanics while performing massage treatments is of vital importance. Another important factor to consider is the energy protection procedures prior to offering any hands on treatment.

I am a supporter of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, who is the spiritual leader of Tibet. His travels have taken him to more than 62 countries on six continents. He has met with Presidents, Crown Rulers, Prime Ministers, Heads of State, well-known scientists and celebrities; and through it all he remains true to being a humble Buddhist monk.
I have read all of his books, and “The Art of Happiness” holds a special place in my heart. I have embraced all of his peaceful teachings and you can imagine how I felt to be in His Serene presence when I saw him speak at Nova-Southeastern University in Davie, Florida on February 23, 2010. It was a dream come true for me.
I sat only a few rows away from His Holiness, and the sheer vitality and intensity of the Love that radiated from himRead More

Over the years, one thing I have learned from those I have assisted in their healing – physically, emotionally, and spiritually – it takes time to heal old emotional wounds. No matter what we achieve in life, if we are haunted by feelings of abandonment, rejection, or other traumas that we experienced early in life, we continue to question our abilities to be our authentic selves, personally and professionally. And, if we don’t heal these personal wounds first, it is difficult to help others heal.
Many of the workshops I have facilitated, I have been amazed on how profoundly and how necessary it is to be aware of these early experiences and their affect upon ourselves. As I spoke about and touched upon the healing of one’s heart, most of those presentRead More
Monthly, there are thousands of new graduates all over the globe, and I would really like to give back to them through the educational capacity of Stone Massage University. Because, when I first started back in the early 1970’s as an LMT, I was well aware of the power of touch, but I never set out to change the world. I only wanted establish a positive reputation and bolster the creditability of our industry by changing people’s perceptions of the actual benefits of massage.
It became my life’s work, and decades later, my deepest desire now is to be able to provide the latest information on how to facilitate the trans formative powers of massage, for both new and established practitioners, to the benefit their clients and their professional status.
I believe Stone Massage work isRead More
