...because you deserve it!

 I have known since I was a child that I wanted to help people. Gradually, massage became the outlet that I knew I was meant to use to do just that. I graduated from Patrick Henry Community College in December of 2013 from the Therapeutic Massage program and in March of 2014 received my massage therapy certification through the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.

 I have known since I was a child that I wanted to help people. Gradually, massage became the outlet that I knew I was meant to use to do just that. I graduated from Patrick Henry Community College in December of 2013 from the Therapeutic Massage program and in March of 2014 received my massage therapy certification through the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. I am blessed to be able to pursue a career that is so near and dear to my heart. I believe whole-heartedly in the power of massage and its benefits which is why I am thrilled to be able to share its healing qualities with everyone that life brings my way. I feel it is a mission of mine to help people realize that massage is not just a luxury but a necessity for a happy, healthy lifestyle. I specialize in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cupping, Ear Candling, and Thai Massage. I am located at Just Breathe Yoga & Bodywork in Uptown Martinsville, VA.

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Swedish

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Thai Massage

I have been trained in Thai Massage which allows the client to be fully clothes. I move the client's body through different yoga like movements.

Chair Massage

Chair massage is a short massage, anywhere from five to 30 minutes, done through the clothing. It typically focuses on key tension areas in the back, neck, shoulders and arms. It is beneficial for someone who cannot lay down comfortably.

Manual Cupping

I offer cupping as part of a massage session if a client would like it added.

Ear Candling

Ear candling is a wonderful and relaxing way to clear out any excess wax build-up in one's ears due to sinus drainage or simply an over production of cerumen (ear wax).
