Bringing balance to restore the connection between mind, body & spirit.

My passion for healing has been my guiding light from the beginning. My mother was a LMBT and practiced bodywork while I was still in the womb and then massaged me as a baby during my my first year. These rhythms and foundations of natural healing lead me to discover that bodywork came easily.

My passion for healing has been my guiding light from the beginning. My mother was a LMBT and practiced bodywork while I was still in the womb and then massaged me as a baby during my my first year. These rhythms and foundations of natural healing lead me to discover that bodywork came easily. By age 10, I was scheduling bodywork sessions to family members and friends of the family during holiday gatherings. I fulfilled my dream in 2015 and graduated from the Body Therapy Institute in Silk Hope NC where I learned myofascial release, PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) and many other traditional therapies.


Since then I have been training in new modalities including Thai Massage. Thai massage dates back 2500 years to India at the time of the Buddha. It is an ancient and powerful method of healing that combines accupressure, deep compressions & passive yoga stretching to restore total balance for body and mind - it's like going to your massage therapist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, then a yoga class - a truly holistic experience. I have also completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher training program and offer Yoga classes at Apex Retreat Center. I have co-lead a number of hands on wellness classes for caregiver’s of people living with dementia as well as provided massage therapy sessions to people living with dementia who often feel pain but have lost their ability to express.


My bodywork style blends a variety of modalities and I customize each session to meet the intentions of the client and create Natural Balance in the body. Furthermore, I offer self-care tips including stretching and breath-work, natural remedies such as plants, baths, oils and teas, positive affirmations and new ways to look at old habits. Daily homework is the key to improve your quality of living, being, and feeling.


I have learned that each body has the wisdom, knowledge and information to heal itself; it just needs a little encouragement. I can help you to create space in your body so that your body’s natural healing process emerges and balances you in the fascial matrix you live in. I am here to guide you as you learn to heal and thrive. Through connection to each other and connection to our mind, body and spirit we can all find our Natural Balance.
