About Us

Sometimes we need the space to heal through energy work, and sometimes we really need those knots dissolved in our shoulders. I offer both sides of the spectrum and seamlessly combine them to offer both a deep emotional as well as physical experience. At the beginning of each appointment we will assess your needs together and decide how the hour would be most effective for you.

I graduated from the Florida School of Massage and have been practicing since 2003. I received an advanced certification in Sports Therapy in 2004 and in 2014 completed my Reiki Mastership.

My practice is inclusive of people of all sizes, disabled people, lesbian, gay, queer, trans* or gender non-conforming people.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Amazing!!!Does great deep tissue work. She always fixes what's broken!

    Helen is one of the best massage therapists in town! She is highly intuitive mixed with great skill.

  • Everything was perfection

    My experience are always great. I usually come in for pain management and I always feel better after my session's.

  • Helen listened to the concerns that I had and explained in details that I could understand just why I might be experiencing these "aches". She then proceeded to gently address the areas of concern. I left feeling much better. I did go ahead a make another appointment for next week so that stay on top of the pain... Helen also suggested some stretches that I could do at home.

    We talked before about areas to focus on. She found my trouble spots and spent time working on them. Helen is very knowledgeable about how the body works and found related areas that needed work that I was not even aware of!

  • Wish my sessions could be longer.

    Always a pleasure

  • Helen is very skilled and professional! I have been going to her for a couple of years now. The experience is always great!

    Helen is a true healer. I felt reinvigorated after a session with her- as if I had a reset or reboot. She is incredibly intuitive and highly skilled.

Helen is just beyond amazing in every factor of a massage. She takes the time to listen to your needs. She is conscience of your privacy. She makes you feel comfortable in what can be a vulnerable state for some. And if you happen to be part of the LGBT community where you have had surgery or really any surgery a human can have she is the one to go to for scar massage!!

This was my first experience having a massage, and it was wonderful. My body has suffered so many accidents, and your massage got rid of much of the constant pain, at least for awhile. Your hands are magical at finding the problems, and I very much appreciate them and you.

First massage and I hope not my last! It hurt so good. I feel much better today and it was very helpful to get feedback about what I could do to help relieve some of the tension between massages. Hoping to get this on a bi-weekly basis! Do you have later appointments? I found I didn't really want to do anything but go to bed afterwards. Thanks Helen I enjoyed it immensely Gags

I really enjoyed going to Helen, she was very kind and eager to answer all my questions even before the actual massage occurred, such as my questions with redeeming a gift certificate I'd received. During the massage she really paid attention to the areas I told her I was in pain and she is very educated, trained, and experienced in giving a real massage that will actually relieve pain or tension.

Helen seems to be one of those rare massage therapists who understands the techniques of massage in relation to the functions of the body well enough to go well beyond offering just relaxation. It is wonderful to find a massage therapist who also knows the right techniques, right muscles and systems to address to help resolve health issues.
