I have been helping patients through Clinical Massage for nine years and am highly skilled at my craft. I attended Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage and have been licensed with the Board of Nurses in Virginia since 2012. ​ I have spent my entire massage career working primarily with other healthcare providers including Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, and Mental Health Care Providers to complement client treatment plans, provide pain relief, reduce stress/anxiety and help restore function to the body. ​



Commonly used techniques I am trained in: ​ Nationally Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release Therapy, Kinetic/Static Cupping, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage (not to be confused with "deep pressure"), Prenatal Massage, Oncology Massage & Trained to work with TBI's, PTSD & Trauma. (No one session is alike, I do not charge per modality, only for time.) 


Clinical massage creatively combines and applies a range of techniques to assess and manually manipulate the soft tissues of the body. I will formulate a treatment strategy based on the client’s preferences, client history, and physical assessment/Doctor recommendations to relieve specific complaints of tension, pain and dysfunction associated with mental and physical stress. ​ 


The effects of massage therapy are progressive and are best when used as part of an overall strategy to promote wellness. Some of the major benefits of massage may include lower blood pressure, reduction in chronic pain, relief to overused/achy muscles, increased range of motion, decrease in scar tissue buildup, improved posture, reduced anxiety, stress reduction and promoting quality sleep and improved productivity. Treatment plans may involve weekly sessions to jump-start your healing process or monthly sessions for preventative maintenance to compliment your overall health and wellness! The emotional balance of bodywork can often be just as valuable as the more tangible physical benefits making clinical massage a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. 


​ I regularly pursue Continuing Education and have completed training in an oncology massage intensive program as of June, 2019. I have also completed a Hospital Stewardship intensive with Virginia Hospital Center in July of 2021 adapting massage in ICU, Oncology and Rehabilitative Care. My love of education has led me to additionally attain an Associate in Criminal Justice (2005) from Northern Virginia Community College. As well as a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in Homeland Security and a minor in Political Science (2018) from Troy University. I am beginning a Master of Social work at George Mason University in the Spring of 2022.

Jessica found where I carry tension and really worked it. I felt much looser and relaxed for the next day. I’m sure that getting massages regularly will help maintain this feeling.
