I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the DMV area with a total of 800+ hours under my belt towards deep tissue, sports massage, acupressure, trigger point release and stretch therapy. My specialty is deep tissue along with trigger point release. Deep tissue is my true passion, and my clients and previous instructors always touted at my quality and work in that area. 

.


Outside of massage I am an athletic coach primarily around running and track & field. I specialize in strength training and conditioning, so I work heavily with performers, athletes and executives on Performance Recovery, which includes sports massage, deep tissue, stretch therapy along with active self-care planning to minimize recovery time, helping you to return you back to maximum performance level for training or competition in a shorter time frame. 

.


When your body is imbalanced or disturbed by aches, pains, injuries, posture compensations or the overall healing process it is impossible to perform even your daily life duties with maximum efficiency. These imbalances in impacts on performance can impact your sleep, mood, productivity. 

.


By bringing your body back into balance with Massage Therapy, Stretch Therapy & Performance Recovery & Self-Care plan will help to achieve and maintain a better sense of health and wellbeing.

.


As a lifelong athlete, professional athletic coach and all-around fitness guru I am incredibly passionate about helping my clients achieve a strong and balanced body.  As a former competitive athlete I have spent a lifetime competing and performing in many arenas where strength, flexibility, and agility have been required to be successful.  My personal experience coping with injury and rehabilitation from major and minor injuries became my catalyst to find methods to help people maximize their individual physical capabilities beyond just their daily fitness goals.
