I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist graduated from the Virginia School of Massage, as well as a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). I specialize in Native American Healing Arts. I incorporate these modalities and techniques in all of my massages and bodywork.

I have over 750 hrs from the Virginia School of Massage were I learned over 10 different modalities and techniques such as Swedish, Reflexology, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Shiatsu, Acupressure, Sports Massage, Russian Massage, Myofascial Release, Hot Stone Massage, Cupping Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy and Chair/Seated Corporate Massage.

After more than 10 years in the medical field as a Medical Office Coordinator, I longed for a career in Massage Therapy to help my husband with his Chiropractic practice, just to soon realize massage therapy is my passion in life! I was already familiar with the benefits of massage, for as a teenager my mother was first introduced to chiropractic/massage care as a way to help relieve tension and pain after a very bad fall that ended in a low back surgery.   

This career has given me the opportunity to start my own business and help others find a path towards wellness. Having worked alongside chiropractors, physicians, athletes, accident victims, expectant mothers, children as well as elderly. I have focused heavily on therapeutic massage because so many people experience chronic pain that often do not respond to traditional medical treatments, and who are, therefore, searching for an alternative solution. I specialize in alleviating long-term pain, and discomfort. I started my practice to address these types of issues. 

As an "Intuitive Therapist" I let your body do the talking and facilitate the release of tension or energy blockages you didn't even know you had. My bodywork is a bit unique with a blend of techniques and various modalities customized to benefit my clients needs. Some people think that Deep Tissue is all about the pain. If you are looking for someone to hurt you, I am not the therapist for you. I believe more in warming up the tissues and slowly working the muscle. Knots and tension will disappear without the "No Pain, No Gain" approach.  

From adjusting the temperature of the room to placing pillows for comfort, I will continually strive to bring my clients the best in alternative medicine and customer service, with a caring and compassionate touch!

Blessings!!!

The great part of a massage at Nativa is that it's not a social or primping appointment, it's about health and wellness. I have some autoimmune diseases and my massage is tailored to my needs.
