About Us

Hi! I'm Val, a Licensed Massage Therapist and trauma-informed Yoga teacher with nearly a decade of experience as a body worker.  I began Yoga therapy training in teh spring of 2021 and am enjoying adding new techniques to my body work sessions and classes as I acquire them. 

 I found Yoga and massage around the same time, over 20 years ago. I've continually benefitted from both practices, ranging from injury recovery to stress management to increased overall wellbeing, and I'm grateful to be able to share those same benefits with others. The longer I'm in practice, the more I'm in awe of the body’s innate ability to repair and recover, and the way our nervous systems are involved in the feelings and sensations we experience, whether they be acute or chronic, physical or emotional.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • BEEN GOING TO VALERIE FOR A FEW YEARS, A REAL LIFE SAFER!!!! MICHAEL L FERRARA 🎶🎸🇮🇹

    Val and her studio are amazing and conveniently located. She so good that I told her I wouldn't tell anyone about her because her schedule would fill up. :) (But of course I'll tell people, because she's the best.)

  • This isn't a cookie cutter massage studio. If you're looking for a very personalized, productive and effective massage therapy this is your place. Val is very knowledgeable, attentive and trying to help you with all your health issues, go for it. I love her special touch and she knows how to relax my body.

    Great job!! Made me feel very comfortable! Great vibe and beautiful setting!

  • I am as picky as it comes for massage and have very high standards. Val is so incredibly knowledgeable in her field. Her passion always shows through her work. She always goes above and beyond and knows exactly what my body and muscles need. 90 minutes is never enough! If you’ve been searching for a solid, consistent massage therapist - look. no. further.

  • Fantastic massage!

    Val is a top notch massage specialist and has many other talents, yoga,etc. Highly recommend her to friends who ask.

  • Valerie has a knack of getting rid of the knots in the most gentle way. I’ve been to therapists who think the more it hurts, the more effective the treatment. Not so with Valerie. She intuitively finds the areas that need work and subtly, yet effectively, works them away. Loved the massage ♥️ Can’t wait for the next time.
