I have been practicing the art of massage therapy full time since 1987 and I am still amazed at the power of therapeutic touch to heal. Throughout the years I have massaged children, adults and the elderly of all sizes and with various physical aliments.

CranioSacral Therapy to balance and relax the nervous system. Oncology Massage for clients going through cancer treatment and Geriatric Massage for seniors in independent and assisted living homes. Whether you have sore and tense muscles, suffer from fibromyalgia, rehabbing from an injury or just want to relax, I will do my best help you meet your goal in each of our massage sessions.

The massage therapy is augmenting the physical therapy treatments that I am also completing after recent surgery. The cupping therapy and massage sesions truly help to reduce the swelling that occurs after the physical therapy sessions. My recovery is going very, very well.

Giselle explained the process so I understood what she was doing given this was my first lymphatic massage. Very relaxing and I noticed an immediate reduction in the swelling right after.
