About Monica

"sense of well being"

Monica has lived in Carson City for over 20 years and has two adult children; a daughter who is active duty in the Marine Corps and a son who is a truck driver in Washington state. They have blessed her with two, beautiful grandchildren.

She has worked in the medical field for over 20 years. Her experience began as a Medical Office Manager, a licensed Chiropractic Assistant and Nationally Certified as a Medical Assistant.
She is now a Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist and a Licensed Massage Therapist. She also is a Master Reiki Practitioner. Her extensive training began at the Bodhi Tree Center for Healing Arts in Carson City for Massage Therapy and Reiki, and the ACOLS (Academy of Lymphatics Study) for Lymphatic Drainage. She continues to broaden her education that can be passed on to her patients.

Monica loves being outdoors which includes camping, hiking, fishing, summer BBQs, and gardening. She also loves to embrace her Native American culture and has learned to play the Native American flute as well as being a Jingle Dancer and making beautiful jewelry and dream catchers. As a person, Monica is a very empathetic and caring person, and loves to be able to pass on her natural gifts to her patients, in all aspects… through listening and her services. She is profoundly passionate and fulfilled in her career by helping people through wellness, homeostasis (balance in the body, and harmony; spiritually, emotionally and physically.

She has a wide array of knowledge of the body and what it takes to help her patients leave with a “sense of well-being”. Monica’s patients will tell you that she goes above and beyond the massage and is determined to do whatever it takes ‘naturally’ to keep them off medications and on a physical wellness program.

With a mantra of “Happiness is the Highest Form of Health”, Monica spends each and every day reflecting that and is a great influence on her patients.
