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 or Yoga services

Deep, intense massage. Worked on what was needed. Relentless, not just fulfilling a massage. Really pursued the problem areas with intent. Appreciated.

Amazing service as always!

It was so therapeutic. The atmosphere was calm and inviting. The massage was restorative, as if I walked out a new woman. The therapist was so genuine and extremely skilled in her knowledge and ability to help me. I have never pain and she was able to help with that. I am very much ready for my next appointment. Thank you so much

I loved the way Dedra worked with my body to help relieve tension. She makes you feel very comfortable and really does a thorough job of showing you what is going on in your body.

Dedra is awesome! She is an excellent masseuse that is very attuned to her clients needs. Her massage was thorough. At the end she reviewed all of her findings in detail and recommended some specific stretches to help with my problem areas. She asked me if I would be willing to try the stretch while I was there, and assisted/educated me to assure that I knew how to do each stretch with minimal risk of injury. She offers specials and plans to help with affordability. My only recommendations for her are that she update her business cards with her new information soon, and maybe add her business to Google maps so that she is easier to find/contact. I'll definitely be back again!

I personally look for "specials" or "coupons" to be able to come more often. Otherwise, see above comments.
