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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Shan managed to make me comfortable in a very short time which is very difficult. She explained step by step and constantly checked with me to make sure I was okay. I am looking forward to more treatments to see what progress my body will make.

Shan is one of the best therapeutic massage therapist in the area. She is also an expert in fascia blasting (healing and repairing the fascial layers under the skin). Shan takes time to asses what exactly your body needs and how to support it through the massage session. I highly recommend Shan for all future therapeutic massage. :-D

So... never hearing about this fascia blasting, I was afraid. I have Plantar Fasciatis, something I know nothing about and thought I could never get... in BOTH FEET. Yes, I am one of the lucky athletes. I work out 4 days a week and play tennis ay least 3, and along the year many small tournaments. Shan was recommended to me when n I had tried many other traditional curing techniques. I LOVE HER!! Her passion for helping is second to NONE. She is so educated in the knowing of the body that we were able to discover areas that may have been causing my issues and we continue to work together to find and cure them. I will say the technique is not easy, painful at times, you have to want to get better! I feel after 5 treatments I am more tolerant and have sped my recovery time by several weeks. Although I may FEEL better in a few weeks I will continue to work with Shan to keep this aging body at its best! Many thanks to all who open my mind to a method not very well known, but one that will be very well known in the immediate future.

Shan is incredibly kind and intuitive of what the body is needing. My experience with her was very healing and I look forward to seeing her again!

The bed is so comfy and the low lights and music are relaxing. Her touch is just right and she knows the pressure points and her deep tissue techniques are wonderful. The cupping has really helped my back pain. I recommend her to all my friends and workmates.
