Hi! I'm Val, a Licensed Massage Therapist and trauma-informed Yoga teacher with nearly a decade of experience as a body worker.  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 what and how we feel. I'm passionate about how the body works and repairs as a whole, and approach each treatment with the full body in mind, blending modalities to achieve personalized, lasting ease and relief.

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.

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.
