About1Ina Rucker, LMT 5132, AHPAbout2.

I have lived in Las Cruces since 2002 and studied with Wanita Thompson at the Mesilla Valley School of Therapeutic Arts in 2005. I have studied Myofascial Release with John Barnes, Orthopedic Massage with James Waslaski and Eric Dalton, Cranial Sacral work with Upledger and Etienne Peirsman, and Thai Table Massage with Ova Leuthye.

I graduated from the California College of Ayurveda in Nevada City, CA where I received my Ayurvedic Health Practitioner certification. While at CCA I studied Marma Therapy, Chakra Clearing, Ayurvedic Facials and Pancha Karma therapies and have studied intensive Pulse Diagnosis with Dr. Vasant Lad in Albuquerque. I am also a student of Sonia Masocco of Albuquerque. I have studied Ayurvedic Polarity Therapy with the amazing Amadea Morningstar of Santa Fe and that is a continuing work in progress.  I now am studying Planetary Herbology (Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western herbology) under the guidance of Michael and Leslie Tierra.

I am now a certified Evan Healy facialist (no extractions) using the evanhealy brand of skin and body care products featuring simple plant-based, certified organic ingredients.
