Relaxation is a state of mind

A turning point in my thoughts of becoming a massage therapist happened after my grandmother passed away. She felt like such a kindred spirit with me that I knew she would want me to follow my heart and do something I had true passion for! She left me enough money to pay for school and the rest has been wonderful history.

After touring a couple schools in my area for massage therapy I found a home at Sterling Health Center School of Massage. I worked during the day and went to school in t... more

Notable Experiences

Acupressure is a very powerful tool used to help ease many aliments within the body. I tend to use this therapy more with pregnant mommies that would like to help their body ready for delivery.
Craniosacral Therapy
This therapy has been proven to help: Migraines and Headaches Chronic Neck and Back Pain Autism Stress and Tension-Related Disorders Motor-Coordination Impairments Infant and Childhood Disorders Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries Chronic Fatigue Fibromyalgia TMJ Syndrome Scoliosis Central Nervous System Disorders Learning Disabilities ADD/ADHD Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Orthopedic Problems And Many Other Conditions
Deep Tissue
Deep-tissue massage is applied slowly with keen attention to the tissue and the way in which it is changing. Drop into the tissue and intend for the tissue to soften and release, and for your elbow, forearm, knuckles, reinforced fingers, or supported thumbs to progress through the fibers of the myofascia as the prow of a boat moves through water. If you are working at the correct depth and remaining responsive to the tissue, it will slowly start to open, and you will feel yourself melt into the tissue and advance. This is the way I was instructed to approach a deep tissue massage. Each session with the client will be a problem focused session and will not include a full body massage because I will stay in the area of concern for the duration.
Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

Shiatsu Massage In Japanese, shiatsu means "finger pressure." For shiatsu massage, the therapist uses varied, rhythmic pressure on certain precise points of the body. These points are called acupressure points, and they are believed to be important for the flow of the body's vital energy, called chi. Proponents say shiatsu massage can help relieve blockages at these acupressure points. (taken from I tend to use this type of massage for clients that are not comfortable with removing any clothing. The effects are generally the same as a therapeutic massage and if the client is comfortable them the massage technique (which ever is used) will be more effective.
I have taken extensive classes for prenatal, L&D, and postpartum massage. The benefits are GRAND!!! "Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is called Swedish Massage, which aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Swedish Massage is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy."

Lymphatic Drainage
MLD is a potent adjunct in cleansing the body’s tissues of metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria, large protein molecules and toxins; this includes long term use medications, anesthesia in post surgery recovery, and harmful or poisonous substances that have entered the body through exposure or ingestion. Scientific studies have proven that the immune system is supported and even boosted as a result of receiving regular MLD treatments. A sluggish lymphatic system increases the chance of chronic illness and disease. MLD is very effective in countering the body’s natural inflammatory response following soft tissue trauma. These include sprains, fractures, orthopaedic surgeries and replacements, and orthodontal surgery. As a basic rule, the less swelling that occurs, the less bruising and pain will subsequently follow. If received in a timely manner, MLD can dramatically shorten the route to recovery. Lymph drainage is gentle, rhythmical, and soothes the nervous system. I invite you to treat yourself to seasonal MLD treatments as a way of exercising your immune system.
Since this is the technique that was taught in school it really is the base for all my massages.
