Change the way you feel!

As I was approaching my options for college I was enveloped with the idea of pursuing the best education I could find as a massage therapist. So, I moved 300 miles away from my family and friends and began my education. Many things changed for me as a young adventurer of the east coast, but my thirst for knowledge of human anatomy and my amazement at the body's vulnerability and resilience grew roots deep in my heart.

As I was approaching my options for college I was enveloped with the idea of pursuing the best education I could find as a massage therapist. So, I moved 300 miles away from my family and friends and began my education. Many things changed for me as a young adventurer of the east coast, but my thirst for knowledge of human anatomy and my amazement at the body's vulnerability and resilience grew roots deep in my heart. I soon began to piece together that I had found some of my purpose and built a foundation on assisting others with wellness practices.


I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2003 in the state of NY and I currently hold a PA state license. I trained for more than 1000 hours at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Westport, CT with a strong clinical foundation. My continuing focus of study has included Thai massage and LomiLomi massage techniques.


I teach as a Registered Yoga Trainer, and as an adjunct instructor for the massage therapy and personal trainer program at a local technical school and hold a certification as a CPR, First Aid and AED Instructor.
My personal hobbies have greatly influenced my career and hands on technique, I have studied the Chinese martial art, Pai Lum Kung Fu since 2010.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Yoga, or Spa services

Loved everything. The room had a little to much light. Amazing overall.
by Cherie on Mar 13
She did great work on my areas of back pain and the surrounding areas and I felt like a brand new person when I left! I was able to stand completely straight after the massage and was much more comfortable. I don't know what I would've done without her helping me out! A fantastic massage!!!

she does an excellent job

I liked the lower back massage and the work on my feet. I also liked the adductor work when the pressure was tolerable. It got a little too deep. The back was ok. I like more specific work there. I didn't like the abdomen massage. I also did not care for the final head rub. I didn't really like the hip massage. Some of it was ok. I like a smoother slow stroke. And the room was a little bright for my taste.

Very communicative. I appreciated the attention to my personal needs.
