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.

Always a 5 Star experience with Marie! I have suffered from chronic lower back pain for years and recently injured my shoulder and have been in tremendous pain and I have not had full range of motion in months. Marie is so experienced and intuitive, she was able to thoroughly treated my shoulder area that I felt 90% better. I could not believe the range of motion I had after my massage. Marie is a true gift from God and I am so very thankful and grateful that she's in my life. I am a Life Long Client!
