    About me


    Born and raised in California, sports and dance was a big part of my life growing up. At an adult age I received my Associate Arts Degree in Dance. Later, with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the pocket, I decided to leave for Europe to audition for various dance companies. Dancing for more than a decade, traveling, rehearsing and experiencing the strain of a dancer’s life took a toll on my body. During that time, I frequently reached out from fellow dancers in the companies and visa versa for massage and different other methods to relieve muscle tension. 
    It was naturally that massage therapy merged into my professional career. I decided to return to the USA to study anatomy, physiology and therapeutic massage, obtaining various diplomas and receiving my professional massage license. 
    Settling down in Switzerland I continued studying Reflexology and Medical Massage Therapy. Establishing my massage therapy institute at Come Back Physical Therapy in La Tour de-Peilz, I have had the opportunity to work as a therapist for the last twenty years in an inspiring and highly professional environment. Since then, I have also integrated other movement therapies for posture, mobilisation and preventive care for back problems. For athletes I offer physical preparation, body strengthening, recovering and breathing and relaxation techniques. My massages are for everyone who takes care of his/her well-being.
    I have recently re-located Vita-Balance Massage Therapy to a beautiful, calm and private space with garden at Rue du Château 24, La Tour de-Peilz.


    I look forward to welcoming you to Vita-Balance!
