Get comfortable in your body!

My goal as a massage therapist is to help you get comfortable in your body!

My goal as a massage therapist is to help you get comfortable in your body!

My interest in massage began at age of 5 when I was witness to the after-effects of an automobile accident involving my mother. Aiding in the healing process over the years gave me a hands-on learning experience of the body's musculature and an understanding of pain management. It has been my goal to help people manage their aches and pains ever since, whether the source of discomfort roots from daily stress in the workplace, in the classroom, or at home; from injuries related to sports or accidents; from medical conditions or structural and functional postural deviations. I love a challenge and I love to see results!


It is my belief that a full body massage is great for overall body awareness and relaxation; however, I believe area specific bodywork is the best approach in the long run. I enjoy medical massage where I am able to pinpoint the problem area and eliminate referred pain, release compressed nerves and stiff joints, and increase range of motion throughout the body. I do this through neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, myofascial therapy, and deep tissue therapeutic massage.

If it is the relaxing full body massage that you seek, I am able to incorporate my melting pot of therapies in with the relaxing strokes of a Swedish style massage with a hint of reflexology and Shiatsu acupressure, promoting relaxation, stress relief, and a better night's sleep. 

I look forward to healing with you!
