Massage is a passion for me and I always want to learn more.  I am proficient in 18 modalities, both western and eastern, and I specialize in deep work.  I take classes to learn new techniques whenever possible, and I have a thorough knowledge of the body and anatomy.  With over 4000 hours of experience and 1400 hours of training, I am a seasoned bodyworker, and I will help you release pain and tension and achieve a sense of well-being.

Lead Therapist at Heartworks BodySpa

I have over 1400 hours of training, and over 4000 hours of experience in massage. I was by far the busiest therapist at the spa; there was a 2 1/2 month wait to get an appointment with me.

I have had a lot of massages and this one was amazing and helped me release some tension. Thank you!

Thank you so much for wonderful healing experience. I am moving through my day with much less pain. And oh by the way would you suggest I return for another session to continue working on my back issues? Sandy Coleman

Some people might feel awkward stripping down and climbing onto the massage table and getting up naked while the massage therapist is in the room.

Barbara reviews the 1st time questionnaire and pays attention to areas the client is concerned about. She found several places I didn't realize were tight or knotted and worked on those to loosen them. Had insight as to what could be causing my problem areas which really made sense and gave me some ideas on simple but effective ways I can help myself at home. I've already made my 2nd appointment and I know I'll benefit greatly. Barbara really gives a great therapeutic massage!

Excellent corrective massage technique done by Barbara.

Excellent experience; Barbara has the gift of healing! She is very knowledgeable about the body and shares exercises tips readily. I searched for her when she moved places because she is the best massage therapist I've experienced. I now drive 35 minutes to get to her, and that is saying a lot!

My experience with Barbara was very comfortable as if I've known her for a very long time. It was a wonderful experience. You can definitely tell that she loves what she does!!!!

I LOVE going to Barbara - she does the most relaxing massage but also knows the body very well and works out the knots. Barbara has been my masseuse for many many years - LOVE HER!

She's the best! Barbara is an amazing massage therapist! Hands down the best I've ever had! I drive all the way from downtown San Diego for my appointments and it's totally worth it. Her knowledge of human musculature is encyclopedic and that means she can find and work out what ever ails you. Truly truly a talented practitioner who values her client's wellbeing. Plus excellent pricing!

I did drink lost of water yesterday and used ice. Was able to raise my left arm higher that before. A little sore this am and will use ice again. Thanks
