Maggie brings to her practice a diverse influence from both her career and training in the United States which included an appreciation of Eastern medicine practices such as Shiatsu , as well as unique touches learned from her career as a spa massage provider. Maggie has been very excited to further her education by attending WCCMT to deepen her understanding of the therapeutic application of massage. Maggie is committed to the journey of continuous learning and providing safe effective care as a healthcare provider.
In addition, Maggie is a serious practitioner of the martial art Aikido for the past 22 years. Intensive study of the martial art Aikido with a traditional Japanese teacher was originally what led her to San Diego to live in 1996 until 2004.
