Specializing in Oncology Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage

I have been practicing massage since 2010 and have been located here in Bellevue since 2015. From my years spent in a spa environment I strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable massage experience and from my time at a chiropractors office I also want my touch to be therapeutic.   I believe that if I combine the two to achieve a relaxing AND therapeutic massage I have done my job.

I have been practicing massage since 2010 and have been located here in Bellevue since 2015. From my years spent in a spa environment I strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable massage experience and from my time at a chiropractors office I also want my touch to be therapeutic.   I believe that if I combine the two to achieve a relaxing AND therapeutic massage I have done my job. 


These days I mostly provide oncology massage and manual lymphatic drainage but I do also offer treatment and relaxation massages as well.  A lot of the time you can expect your massage to be a blend of many different modalities depending on what you need most.  I am also studying to become a certified aromatherapist so expect exciting things in the future with that!  

In addition to my love of massage and aromatherapy, I also have wonderful husband (who teaches high school at Bishop Blanchet) and a very cute and very furry English Angora rabbit.  I have recently taken up a 'drop spindle' habit and am learning how to spin his fur into yarn, very fun!  He provides hours of entertainment :)

Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to send a message or call if you have any questions.
