Compassion makes the world a better place,
and me a better therapist!
With Buds to Blossoms, I provide massage for children in need. In 2012, I traveled to Cambodia to work with children at an HIV/AIDS orphanage, and children and adults at and Acid Burn Survivor Clinic. It was so helpful for the kids--and for me-- that I plan to travel with a group of volunteers to Kathmandu to work children affect by HIV and disabilities. Click for more information and to donate.

Providing therapeutic massage for veterans. Massage can be helpful for a myriad of challenges associated with PTSD and trauma--physical and emotional. Do you know a veteran that could benefit? Or, wish to donate to the cause? Send me an email: TurtleMoonBodyworks@hotmail.com
I am first mate on the sailing vessel Pagusus taking kids and veterans sailing on San Francisco Bay. The Pegasus mission is to enable youth to become productive members of a sustainable society through positive outdoor environmental education and by reinforcing life skills. We also started taking veterans groups and their familis in 2015. The guests tell us that they sleep better at night and it helps with family and other relationships. We are supported entirely by donations and volunteers. Our guests never pay for the voyages. If you know of youth or veterans groups that would benefit, please let us know. Or, you can help with a financial donations. More information.
