Brandi Card, Pilates teacher and massage therapist
I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ, graduating from the University of Arizona school of journalism in 1996. I moved to Marathon in 1997. Following a brief career in newspaper journalism, I opted to return to school... this time to study massage therapy.I completed my massage therapy certification at the Desert Institute of Healing Arts in Tucson, AZ in 2004.
In 2015 my husband herniated two discs in the L4/L5 vertebra while roofing. After reviewing his X-rays and MRI, the neurosurgeon at the University of Miami recommended he find someone who was Polestar Pilates certified to do rehabilitation to avoid surgery. After numerous phone calls and emails later, we found someone who came to our house. After watching Alina work, and watching some youtube videos of Brent Anderson (founder of Polestar Pilates) I knew this was the next step in my career.
Besides bodywork I love scuba diving, snorkeling, reading, gluing sea shells on stuff and spending time with my husband, Mike.
