Teka was born and raised in the southern states, spending her early years in Orlando Florida, and the majority of her life in South Carolina. She has been living out west for about 6 years, but her southern cultural values remain heavily prominent in her life, being raised on the principles of respect, hard work, spirituality, and community. 

 

Upon turning 18 years old, she joined the United States Air Force, as an Aircraft Armament Systems Specialist. To be put shortly, she loaded bombs, missiles, and decoys on various fighter aircraft, as well as aircraft maintenance for a total of six years. Upon her arrival in Arizona in 2008, she enrolled in Arizona School of Massage Therapy,  completing 815 hours of Eastern and Western therapeutic modalities, and has been practicing for 5 years now. While practicing massage, she finished her Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Arizona State University, but decided to continue her duties and service as a massage therapist!

 

She is proficient in various relaxation and therapeutic modalities to include Deep Tissue, Therapeutic, Corrective/Balancing Therapies,  injury and recovery massage protocol, prenatal, and Lymphatic Drainage/Oncology Massage.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Jerri on Oct 01
Listens and works on the sore spots- very personable!
by Cassandra on Sep 23
It's always a pleasure to have a seasion with Teka. I have been going to her weekly for almost two years. I never have to tell her where it hurts. She simply checks my alignment, feels the various muscle groups and then gets right to work. She has anointed hands. She has proven to be very knowledge of how muscle groups affect one another (for examle a pain in the foot could come from a tight muscle in the lower leg) therefor I completely trust her judgement. I appreciate her genuinely thoughtful and professional demener as well as her opennes to try new modalities. She always greets me with a smile and a warm disposition. She has a straightforward approach while not being easily offended. Teka goes out of her way to accomodate her clients and has come in earlier and on her day off to work on me because I was going out of town. If I want or don't want something (more pressure, less pressure, etc), I just let her know and she does her best to make necessary adjustments. It's obvious she has a passion for the services she provides and likewise I have a passion for the services I receive from her. I can't imagine getting body work or a therapeutic massage from anyone but Teka.
