We all rise with the tide.

In 2017, massage helped save my life. I was receiving regular treatments for what I thought was frozen shoulder, and after several sessions was seeing dramatic improvement in mobility and less pain. I was feeling better than I had in several years, which is part of what made my heart attack at age 44 so surprising.

In 2017, massage helped save my life. I was receiving regular treatments for what I thought was frozen shoulder, and after several sessions was seeing dramatic improvement in mobility and less pain. I was feeling better than I had in several years, which is part of what made my heart attack at age 44 so surprising. A 99% blockage in an artery was able to be opened with a stent but, after that, self care went from a luxury to a necessity. I believe if I hadn't been receiving regular bodywork, I would have mistaken the pain of the heart attack for the pain of frozen shoulder, and would not now be able to offer the healing of massage to others.


Now, massage therapy is not only a career, but a calling. When I help someone overcome chronic pain, or alleviate the effects of stress, I am able to share the healing benefits I experienced myself. Nothing is more rewarding.

Mina was incredibly professional, asking me if the pressure and heat of the crystals were to my liking. She did a wonderful job, and I felt relaxed for the remainder of the day.
