I am truly dedicated to my clients and their trust in me to provide them with a wonderful, health promoting experience. I pride myself on providing consistent quality massage and helping clients reach their ultimate health goals with education, encouragement and compassion.  I am a strong supporter of receiving regular massages and of personal self care such as stretching, regular exercise, healthy eating habits and getting plenty of rest all which are crucial to surviving our stressful lives and world. I truly recognize the importance in nurturing ourselves and I feel so blessed to be a part of the process.


I have been told I'm quite intuitive and that allows my version of therapeutic massage to also be relaxing.  I fuses multiple modalities together to get the best possible results.


I practice the following modalities:

Deep Tissue Therapy

Pregnancy Massage

Swedish Massage

Trigger Point

Injury

Sports

US Navy Hospital Corpsman 2000-2006

As a veteran Corpsman I have gained tons of experience in the medical community. I have worked as an EMT, a Medical Assistant/LPN/RN in the Family Practice Clinics, Orthopedics, Dermatology, and OB/Gyn too.
