Aloha. My name is Maria. I am originally from Canada, but spent my childhood in South Florida. After high school graduation, I made the decision to serve my Country for 4 years in the United States Marine Corps. After leaving the Marines, I moved to Arizona and spent many years in the business world as an architectural drafter.
I received my very first massage in 2006. Like I hear from so many others, I don’t know why I waited so long to get one! That first amazing massage is the reason I decided to pursue a career in Massage Therapy. I have been a licensed Massage Therapist in Arizona now since 2007. I graduated from Apollo College in Mesa with 750 accredited hours along with 109 hours of clinical training. I’ve been trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Chair Massage, Prenatal Massage, and Reflexology. I am very excited to be able to learn Lomi Lomi Massage as well. My massages are tailored to fit each individual’s needs and I integrate several modalities to create a unique healing experience for each client. I am very passionate about helping people feel better and I love having a job where seeing me is the highlight of someone’s day! I am excited to join the Hawaiian Experience Spa family and look forward to seeing all of you there.
In my off time, I enjoy biking, hiking, working out, spending time with my son, and being his most avid supporter as he competes locally in Physique Competitions. His dedication to health and wellness makes me one proud mom!
