She soon entered into massage therapy training with the intent of later becoming a Rolfer, which she did in 2008. She is also the owner of Kinetikos Bodywork Therapy.

About Our Name and Your Body
Kinetikos is the Greek word for moving or putting into motion. The proper functioning of our body is dependent upon so much internal motion--blood and lymph flow, nerve impulses, muscle and connective tissue movement, and more. All of this internal motion makes our external motions possible--we can walk, drink water, fight an infection, and respond with lightning reflexes.
But over time, our body and all of its systems accumulate bits of damage from everyday living and occasionally suffer from injury that is structurally traumatic to our body. This causes our internal motions to become less well coordinated, and subsequently, we experience a variety of health problems from aching backs to anxiety to insomnia. Many health problems that we face as we age are caused by, or aggravated by, the body's structural problems. It is our goal to help bring your muscles, connective tissue, bones, nervous system, and organs back to a state in which all of your body's movements, internal and external, are smooth and efficient and provide you with optimal health.
