Healing Hands, Healing Heart

I have lost important people in my life due to illness. I wanted to heal them but I couldn't. 
I wanted to do something that was healing. That is what I love about being a Massage Therapist. It is so gratifying when someone comes to you in pain and you can help relieve that pain, help them sleep better, function better in their day.

I love giving a therapeutic massage that works into the source of the pain and then finishing with a relaxing massage that has you leave feeling pain free and relax...

Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Chair Massage
I have attended many events that have use chair massages. These are usually ten minute massages. It is amazing what can be accomplished in ten minutes to the upper and lower back in ten minutes.
Myofascial Release
I like to start my massages using Myofascial Release to warm up the tissues before I work deeper into the areas of pain. I often find areas of tension, pain and adhesion that you didn't even know you had but are affecting how your body feels.
Sports Massage
As someone who works out and weight lift, I understand how the muscles are affected through your sport activity. I love knowing and working muscles specific.
Swedish
This modality is blended into your massage session. Relaxing and relieving stress in your body.
Trigger Point Therapy
I use this technique when your muscles refuse to relax and cause chronic pain. I have seen this modality relieve knee pain while applying pressure to a muscle in the hip.
Pregnancy
In my practice I have worked with many pregnant women, both to help them relax but also to relieve points of pain that develop during pregnancy.
Deep Tissue
I have had good results with working with Deep Tissue massage. Releasing knots from the muscles.
