A Licensed Massage Therapist is who I am, not what I do

I received my first massage in 2012 and was instantly hooked.  From then on, I  started receiving monthly massages as I found it to be a form of relief from chronic back pain from sitting at a desk for 8 hours each day.  In 2014 I was ready for a career change and I started looking into massage therapy as I loved the idea of helping people like me (stressed out and overworked).  In June 2015 I took a leap of faith and quit my job and decided to enroll in massage school full time.  In June 201...

I received my first massage in 2012 and was instantly hooked.  From then on, I  started receiving monthly massages as I found it to be a form of relief from chronic back pain from sitting at a desk for 8 hours each day.  In 2014 I was ready for a career change and I started looking into massage therapy as I loved the idea of helping people like me (stressed out and overworked).  In June 2015 I took a leap of faith and quit my job and decided to enroll in massage school full time.  In June 2016, I graduated from Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage and I have not looked back since.


I’ve been a resident of Rochester, NY since May, 2005.  I grew up in Grand Rapids, MI and after graduating High School I moved to Cleveland, TN to attend Lee University.  I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration in December 2002.  Traveling and exploring new places is something I love to do.  During my time at Lee, I traveled to North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Texas, and Louisiana.  I even had the opportunity to travel to Poltava, Ukraine for 3 weeks during the summer of 2002.  Along with traveling, I enjoy scrapbooking, crafting, reading, and cooking.



My modalities include, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Pregnancy, and Hot Stone Massage. I also offer Salt and Sugar Scrub for hands and feet along with Aromatherapy for optimal relaxation and a spa like experience.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Ahmad on Nov 08
Does a great job of listening to and addressing the clients needs.
by Linda on Nov 06
It was really great - April asked a lot of questions beforehand and worked on places that needed more attention as well as covered everything. She adjusted the music to my desired level and the smells/sounds/lighting/cleanliness were great. I made another appointment because it is hard to find a massage therapist this good! I detest therapists that rub you fast as if trying to wake you up! - That is not relaxing. April was slow and methodical and complete - even down to my fingers and toes! The little things are the big things! Thanks April.

April is Awesome

April is the most knowledgeable and professional massage therapist while still being both extremely personable and attentive to your needs as her client. The ambiance at Blue Lotus is welcoming, relaxing and lovely. I look forward not only to my massage itself but also to interacting with April at each appointment. It is a highlight experience for me!
