Every Body deserves a massage

I went to school at Cumberland Institute of Holistic Health in Brentwood Tennessee. 

In school, and after as continuing education, I have studied; Swedish Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, CranioSacral Therapy, Acupressure, Cupping, Abdominal Work, Hot Stone, and Myo-fascial work.  Massage is a passion of mine and I love figuring out how my skills can help the person on my table.

It amazes me every day the pain that I see people living with and still going on about their daily lives. I know this takes a toll on people. It changes the way we interact with each other. When we can free ourselves from even a bit of that pain, we can change the world. That is why I love my job. Even when people come in with no apparent stress or tensions going on, I am mindful that physical pain is not the only reason to seek out massage. It also calms the mind and gives you a fresh outlook on life. I have had massage help with depression, anxiety and insomnia. It isn't always about the physical knots in our body, there are emotional knots also. 

In my spare time I love spending time with my family, I have 3 teen girls!!! I am usually running them to activities, joking around with them or helping them with their school. We try to go hiking every week or so. Oregon gives a wonderful opportunity to enjoy nature. I also enjoy going to the gym and knitting.  Though I do not knit at the gym :)

Fantastic overall, I had never tried cupping before but now I know how amazing it feels! My shoulder hasn’t felt this good in a long time

Valerie is excellent at tailoring the massage to specific areas of concern. She also does a great job giving feedback on how to prevent build up of muscle tension specific to her findings during the session.

I've had many massages in fancy, super-expensive spa resorts that weren't nearly as good as this one!

Wonderful, relaxing massage. Valerie was able to help relax a painfully tight shoulder muscle.
