When I was a little girl I used to massage my mother's feet after a long day; and my grandmother's neck and shoulders at family functions. Massage Therapy is something that has come naturally to me for 15 +/- years. I decided my senior year at Franklin High, that I would start my journey to become a professional. The summer following graduation, I started at Cumberland Institute of Holistic Therapies. I obtained my license in March of 2013.

When I was a little girl I used to massage my mother's feet after a long day; and my grandmother's neck and shoulders at family functions. Massage Therapy is something that has come naturally to me for 15 +/- years. I decided my senior year at Franklin High, that I would start my journey to become a professional. The summer following graduation, I started at Cumberland Institute of Holistic Therapies. I obtained my license in March of 2013.

 So far, I have mastered relaxation and deep tissue massage. I am certified to do Acupressure, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Prenatal Massage, Hotstone Massage, and I am Reiki I attuned. I really love doing energy and healing work, and I look forward to learning more about Medical Massage in the years to come. 
I am currently located in Murfreesboro, at Murfreesboro Massage Therapy. If you are looking for more of a spa treatment I also work in East Nashville at O.liv Body Bar.
Outside of work I am a full time mother. I enjoy spending time with my kids and our family. We are new to Murfreesboro and would love to be involved in the local scene. I want to get involved with and learn about gardening and start practicing yoga. I am open to bartering services. If you or someone you know would like to trade, let's get in touch!

Acupressure

Acupressure is great for relieving pain, reducing muscular tension, increasing blood flow and circulation, and it promotes healing and relaxation. Acupressure is done as a clothed bodywork session or can be integrated into your Swedish Massage.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy or Cranial Sacral Therapy, is a healing therapy which is the method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the Cranial Sacral System. A light touch is used to assist the body in its natural movement to release any restriction from the body's attempt to self correct.

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is very similar to Swedish Massage. The movement is slower and the pressure is focused to reach the deeper layers of the soft and connective tissues of the body.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage is used as an add-on service. The heat from the stones help relax the muscles quicker and deeper without the added soreness one may feel after a deep tissue massage.

Swedish

Swedish Massage is the most common and requested modality. It is perfect for increasing circulation and promoting relaxation.

Pregnancy

Prenatal Massage is perfect for easing the aches and pains associated with growing a human being. It is recommended for the mother-to-be, to be in the second trimester before receiving bodywork.
