Education
Tiffany Massage Therapist

Education and Certifications:

Throughout my career I have thrived on continuing my education by taking workshops, online classes, retreats and international trainings in massage therapy, aromatherapy, shamanic/energy healing and holistic health. I truly believe in the power of knowledge and how so many of the healing arts are so intertwined that they can easily be integrated within one another. I also believe in learning from the people and places where the knowledge originated from as much as possible, I call it going to the mothership ūüôā
