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.

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.

Shan is an EXCELLENT massage therapist. Friendly. Experienced. Proficient. I was looking for someone who knows how to professionally fasciablast my body with the Fasciablast tools. Shan does a thorough assessment of all the fascia lines in the body; this gives her lots of information about where my body is holding onto tension, and what needs attention. I've never met anyone who has complete knowledge of how the fascial lines affect my body. Because of the facial blast tools that she used, my lower back is stable again (after she released a muscle in my back). I'm a yoga therapist; I do yoga everyday. Even daily, slow movement yoga wasn't helping get my back stable. My neck had an issue that went all the way down to my arm; I've had it for months. Shan followed the facial lines where the tightness began and released it with her Fascialblast tools. If you are wanting to have a therapeutic massage that repairs and heals areas in your body, make an appointment with Shan. I'll be adding fascia blasting massage with Shan to my self-care routine on a regular basis. Shan, you are the best. ~ Kim Brandt :-D
