Compassionate touch is as necessary as food, water and air.

I began studying and practicing massage therapy at the Minneapolis School of Massage & Bodywork Inc in 1988. Personally, I like to emphasize the "therapy" aspect of massage and many of my clients begin to work with me on recommendation from their physical therapists or chiropractors. My treatments can be the final step in the healing process or just the ticket to keep them healthy and injury free.

I began studying and practicing massage therapy at the Minneapolis School of Massage & Bodywork Inc in 1988. Personally, I like to emphasize the "therapy" aspect of massage and many of my clients begin to work with me on recommendation from their physical therapists or chiropractors. My treatments can be the final step in the healing process or just the ticket to keep them healthy and injury free. I enjoy working with baby boomers, like myself, who want to stay feeling young and active. I love working with dedicated athletes and weekend warriors alike to help them achieve their personal best. And I am experienced in working with illness, chronic health conditions or people recovering from cancer treatments. I believe massage therapy is good preventive health care as well as a rehabilitation tool from pain, illness and injury. When not working I enjoy going hiking through the woods with my husband, cooking delicious allergy free dinners and being a source of love and encouragement to my three children who are very nearly ready to be independent adults. Well once they finish college, fingers crossed.

Esalen Massage

I finished my basic training as a massage therapist in 1989 at the Mpls School of Massage and Bodywork and after working at the local YMCA and for a chiropractor I returned to the school and trained to become their Sports Massage teacher. I worked at MSMB for 4 years before moving to Michigan in 1995.

Thai Massage

I developed an interest in Thai Massage and took my first workshop in 2008. Then I began training with Lucille Palancher of Thai Vinyasa in 2010, and modified to the Table Thai techniques taught by Heath and Nicole Reed. I find clients wishing to work with flexibility issues really love the energizing yet relaxing Thai massage techniques

Cupping Methods

My most recent addition to my therapy skills is Cupping Therapy which I learned from the International Cupping Therapy Association in 2016. I love using the cups to relieve long held restrictions and stiffness and relieve pain. Unlike nearly every massage technique which presses down onto the body the suctioning pull of the cups lifts and separates skin and tissues in a way massage cannot.

Bellanina Facelift Massage

I trained with the Ann Arbor Michigan Bellanina Institute in 2008 to introduce this decadent pampering Facial Massage treatment.
