Shambhala is a Sanskrit term meaning place of PEACE, TRANQUILITY, and HAPPINESS. The name immediately came into my mind when it was time to start my own massage practice. To me, it represented my practice space, as a place of peace and tranquility for people to come, feel safe and release all their aches and pain. It is a place where one can truly enjoy happiness as their body feels good and is pain free.
“I find lots of inspiration through travels. I enjoy traveling, seeing the world and meeting people in different cultures and lifestyles.”
During one of my travels, I discovered a magical place for me. TIBET. It was not only grand, vast, historical, it was so peaceful. I found a great sense of peace within me and it changed my perception about many things on many levels. The trip to Tibet marked the beginning of my inner journey, discovering about myself, about life, about the human body, mind and spirit system when I start my own practice, I named it SHAMBHALA HEALING CENTER, to remind me of the amazing peacefulness and warmth I felt and I want to let all my clients enjoy the sense of peace, tranquility and happiness through my massages and insights messages.
I was born in Singapore, a tropical island, a city/state/country, located near the equator, in Southeast Asia. A bustling urban city, with skyscrapers nevertheless, Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, foot reflexology, massages are an important part of our way of life.
At the age of 7, I began to want to learn how to draw well and that passion grew into my love for fashion and fashion designing, even till today. After graduating from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, I worked in retail sales, as a fashion designer, fashion merchandiser, fashion buyer, to being brand manager for a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate. It was an exhilarating experience.
During my corporate years, the pace of work was fast; long hours in front of the computer, international travels, and still be present in every meeting, looking sharp and ready to work. To do that, I saw my acupuncturist every week as well as getting regular aromatherapy massages to maintain my health and balance my body and mind.
I always love the smell of all the essential oils used on me, the blending of essential oils for each specific need and the healing properties it can do to the body and mind. It was so intriguing and fascinating to me. My curiosity and excitement about the science of aromatherapy ended up with me jumping into a decision to enroll into an aromatherapy massage school to learn more about it and how it can help others to feel better and good! After receiving a Diploma for Aromatherapy and Massage, I began my journey in holistic medicine.
My personal life took a change of direction and I moved to the United States. I decided to further pursue my knowledge and my passion of learning, enrolling in Cayce Reilly School of Massage. Through the school, I learned and discovered my own unique gifts through massage and how to really help people to feel better.
With years of experience, my massage practice and desire to master my gifts so that I can help people feel well have now opened up a door where I can get to see the insights of people’s current issues and I am able to quickly pin point the area that needs to work on and have the techniques to help them quickly relieve and release what they need to release from their body so that they can enjoy freedom, shift their mindsets and transform to a New happy, healthy person.
This is really exciting and the transformation is amazing and real.
I am a healer with love for aromatherapy, massage and body work, a Reiki master, Facilitator, Transformational coach and Fashion designer.
