I try to enter each session with the mindset of making a positive difference in my client's lives. Their smiles and reviews are its own reward! My best review is; "Lu, if it gets any better than this, the Good Lord must be keeping it to himself!" I'm a true believer of treating others how I'd want to be treated. The time that I spend working on my clients is specific to ensuring that my clients therapeutic needs are met. I know that realistically any stress, discomfort, and or imbalance within the body does not happen overnight, so it is essential that my clients are honest about any and all medical limitations, and recent life or activity changes.  Believe it or not, these are things which play a role in tension and stress. Also, I ask my clients to allow themselves to experience the positive changes in their bodies from their sessions. My clients should always inform me promptly if any adjustments are needed to be made to pressure or technical applications during their session. Afterwards, I consult with my client about their session and give follow up care instructions. Quality over quantity is what I say, so it's all about my client's personalized treatment. I am passionate about massage. I want to help you relax your tired, overstressed bodies and minds. Give me your time to relieve your daily stress with a pampering press, and bring life into a new you!

Where I Work

MS # 1669


Antonelli College: Jackson, MS

Associate of Applied Science in Massage Therapy



I received my certification in Reflexology April 22, 2013. Reflexology involves manipulation of specific reflex areas in the foot, hands, and ears that correspond to other parts of the body. This bodywork involves application of pressure to these reflex zones to stimulate body organs and relieve areas of congestion. It is also used to reduce pain, increase relaxation, and stimulate circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. I completed Hot Stone Level 1 certification June 25, 2010.


I received my certification for Prenatal Massage September 7, 2013. Prenatal massage reduces stress and promotes overall wellness. Is helps to alleviate the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy like that of backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and swelling. Some specific techniques can reduce the discomforts and concerns of pregnancy and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.

Myofascial Release

I completed Level 1 training in Synergetic Myofascial Therapy twice. The first completion date was on February 21, 2011, and again February 21, 2016. I look forward to continuing the levels of this treatment as I have found it to be a great compliment to all of my therapies. This level touches on bodywork to release muscular tissues or fascia in order to restore the body a more natural state. It is a deep tissue bodywork that is done slowly, never forcing, paying attention to and communicating with the tissue. We do so in order to experience the “melt” of the fascia. The client is required to participate in this work in order for it to be most useful. This type of bodywork greatly improves structural alignment and is useful in relieving chronic muscular pain.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Apr 05
Wow! I was really impressed with the relief I received from my session. In the office I really appreciated the pleasant sounds of calming music. My massage was very relaxing and very rewarding, as I was able to not only relax but learn, how to take better care of my body. I would highly recommend that everyone go to Lu therapeutics and experience the change that you can only receive through massage therapy. You will appreciate her gentle, loving smile, that says I care. Thanks for helping me heal.
