Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.

Hello,
I've been doing massage as a career since I graduated with Excellence from the Humanities Center School of Massage in 2004. In that time I've worked in a variety of settings, from chiropractic clinics, to wellness centers in hospitals, to day spas, 5 star luxury resorts and eventually my own business.

Hello,
I've been doing massage as a career since I graduated with Excellence from the Humanities Center School of Massage in 2004. In that time I've worked in a variety of settings, from chiropractic clinics, to wellness centers in hospitals, to day spas, 5 star luxury resorts and eventually my own business.

My favorite type of bodywork is something I call Integrative Massage because it draws upon all my years of experience, my intuition and allows me to pick the right modality to best address each client's individual needs. I believe we are all unique and therefore a "cookie cutter", one-size fits all massage session is not what I'm about.

There's a great massage quote that says: "Self-care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel." My philosophy is that everyone deserves a space where they can go to relax, restore, heal, recharge and find their center again.  I love my job because I love helping people be the best version of themselves.

Shan's treatments are not only amazing but are customized at each visit to focus on what is needed. Shan is professional, knowledgable and a natural intuitive healer. I feel so fortunate to have been guided to her. Thank you Shan!

Shan is awesome and highly knowledgeable. I was so comfortable with her and in her studio. I have already booked more appointments and can't wait to continue on this journey of healing!

Shan is thorough and an expert of her craft. She explains what she is doing and checks in frequently to make sure she’s delivering results within your comfort zone. Highly recommend checking her out!

Shan found places that needed attention I didn’t even know hurt!

In November 2017 I fell off a ladder and landed on my right hip, and shoulder. I spent a year listening to my Doctor (unusual for me, but that is how much pain I was in) and all he did was give me shots. Naturally, these just masked the problem and when they wore off, the condition was worse. To the point that I was in constant pain, couldn’t sleep, and had to restrict my yoga and other activities. I was desperate and knew I had to explore other options. I started going to a chiropractor, but that only helped a little. Then my wife discovered a big mass in my bicep area of my arm. She did some light massage and suggested I get some facia blasting. After my first 90 minute session with Shan, I felt immediate relief. She worked to release scar tissue, fascia, blood flow restriction and who knows what else. By the second session, I was able to sleep through the night. I was amazed. I cannot believe how long I suffered, yet how quickly Shan was able to literally get to the root of my problem and fix it. It was truly a miracle and I highly recommend her! Roger

I could not be happier to have found this gifted woman. Shan has the ability to tune into things that are affecting me then uses her knowledge, intuition, and skills to address what's going on. From cricks in my neck to tightness between my shoulder blades, my lower back issues, and other things I wasn't even aware of. Shan is a beautiful and caring person and wants nothing more than to help you as much as she can. Whatever she finds she makes better. And I always leave feeling more open, relaxed, pain-free and nurtured. I highly recommend her.

Shan Is super professional and highly knowledgeable in her field. I feel so comfortable with her (And we all know that is very important when you have to take off your clothes and get in odd positions for fasciablasting) Shan Is very thorough and takes the time to explain everything that she is doing and why. I really like that she appreciates my feedback. She says that feedback helps her to do a better job and I think that's fantastic. At first, I was apprehensive about having someone fasciablast me, but Shan really put me at ease. I feel so great after each appointment that I have decided to go back weekly! It certainly helps that she is a joy to be around.
