Always be kind and act as if someone is watching.

I graduated top of my class from Cortiva School of Massage in Scottsdale and  my desire to relieve pain and reduce stress in my clients drives me to continually learn new techniques, review what I have already learned and evaluate every session for better techniques.

I graduated top of my class from Cortiva School of Massage in Scottsdale and  my desire to relieve pain and reduce stress in my clients drives me to continually learn new techniques, review what I have already learned and evaluate every session for better techniques.


I've been massaging my family and friends since I was 8 years old, so it’s no surprise that this is the career that I chose and excel in. I worked for a large day spa in Chandler and Scottsdale and went by the nickname Mimi, a chiropractic office in Ahwatukee, as well as built my own practice.

I'm qualified to perform CRT (Cranial Release Technique), Swedish, Deep Tissue, NMT (Neuromuscular Therapy), Prenatal, Oncology, Intra-Oral TMJD, Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release, Active Release, PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation), Reflexology and spa services such as hot stones, dry brushing, scrubs, wraps, etc.

I've massaged clients from 6 to 87 years old. Clients with headaches, stress, pain, tension, reduced range of motion and reduced strength have received relief, increased range of motion and mobility from their therapeutic massage session.

Therapeutic Retreat - Owner/Therapeutic Massage Therapist

Prior to my recent downsizing, Therapeutic Retreat was located in a 2500 sq ft spa that I created and managed for 6 years, while also being a therapist. I continually educate myself via seminars, webinars, and reading to increase my skills and knowledge. I also have learned a great deal from self care since I have my own muscular issues I'm working through. It gives me a unique perspective since I'm the client and therapist both.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Marie is really good. She asks about your needs and then makes your body feel heavenly.

Love the skill set of the masseuse. Specific targeted areas were addressed as requested, and I left the massage with more knowledge about the current state of my body, along with feeling better several days later.

Marie’s welcoming, caring attitude and great knowledge of physiology, cause and effect easily earn five stars across the board! I am starting a regular program wth Marie to keep me fine-tuned. :) Thank you!

Marie is absolutely the best massage therapist ever. I spend a lot of time out of state for work, and the first thing I do when I'm back is book an appointment.

Marie is very good with deep tissue massages. She'll work on knots until she gets them all out. I highly recommend her.
