"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." Oscar Wilde

My passion for bodywork began when I stumbled into a yoga class in 2003. It was the first time I was able to quiet my mind and feel what was going on within me on a physical and emotional level.  This sparked a flame and I began to explore other healing modalities such as massage therapy and energy work, beginning a long journey into living a more embodied life.

My passion for bodywork began when I stumbled into a yoga class in 2003. It was the first time I was able to quiet my mind and feel what was going on within me on a physical and emotional level.  This sparked a flame and I began to explore other healing modalities such as massage therapy and energy work, beginning a long journey into living a more embodied life. 

I decided I was ready to shift from the place of the receiver into that of the giver and moved to Jacksonville, NC and attend Porters Neck Yoga and Spa for my Yoga Alliance RYT 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. In time I became an ERYT 200, and I am currently working towards my 500 certification. My interests continued to grow and decided to pursue a career in yoga and massage therapy. I attended my massage therapy training and have not looked back.

I was honored to attend Tracy Walton's oncology massage training. It is a certification recognized by the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork). I am also certified as an Advanced Medical Massage Practitioner and was taught by T.C. Cameron and the LMT Success Group, also recognized by the NCBTMB.

I believe that optimal healing occurs when a deep knowledge of anatomy and alignment is coupled with an open and compassionate heart. Integrative bodywork weaves techniques from different modalities including swedish massage, deep tissue, sports massage, neuromuscular therapy and therapeutic massage, customizing each session to meet the client’s individual needs.

My goal is to provide a space where one is able to tune in to his or her body, thus empowering the clients by making them active participants in their health and wellness. Healing comes from within, so whether dealing with chronic or acute pain or looking to de-stress, I am honored to be able to play a role in this life-enhancing process.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Stacy on Apr 20
Made me very comfortable, listened to my story/ailments/needs and worked on the areas I needed most.

Gina was totally professional, yet pleasant and friendly. She completely knows her art and science of massage therapy. She gave me a set of stretches to do at home, and expects me to "do my homework". I have another appointment scheduled soon,

This was one of the best massages I've ever received. The pressure was perfect - a blend of relaxation and therapeutic. I felt like the knots were getting released but it wasn't super painful. I highly recommend!
