I’m an experienced Massage Therapist who practices within the integrative healthcare system. I treat clients with a variety of needs, including acute pain or illness improvement, injury and surgery recovery or simple relaxation and restoration. My clients are both referrals from fellow healthcare practitioners and individuals who simply understand and enjoy the benefits of massage and/or aromatherapy solutions.
