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. I am experienced in incorporating and blending various massage modalities together in one session with the goal to help each client receive the best session possible. I am trained in Orthopedic Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy which are effective in helping relieve tension headaches, neck, shoulder and back pain.  Manual Lymph Drainage and Massage Cupping for cleansing, as well as for the reduction of swelling (edema) from cosmetic surgery procedures or sports injuries.  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, recovering from surgery or just need to relax, I will do my best help you meet your goal in each of our massage sessions.
