Drawn to the unique ability to impact the quality of life through massage, I signed up for Massage Therapy School immediately following High School Graduation in 1996.  I have a passion to help others achieve pain free living through the art of touch.  


In 2014, I attended my first Myoskeletal Alignment Technique seminar and it has become my primary treatment tool in massage sessions. The focus is to understand muscle patterning through repetitive daily activities as well as the impact of injuries and surgeries to the body and treat the root causes for pain or movement dysfunction.  This allows me to have more impact in fewer sessions.

I have also increased my knowledge and experience with the impact of the emotional cellular memory in the body and energetic imbalances.  I have experienced the freedom and joys of releasing the old 'junk' and soaring to new levels of healing and restoration.  I am a Quantum Crystalline Energy Practicioner, and I offer Level I balancing.

My clients have become my biggest fan club and they are so pleased to the results we achieve together that they send all their friends and family to me for some time on my table.

I believe that the body is very powerful on its own and it craves healing and balance.  It is a joy for me to join you on your healing process and facilitate breakthroughs and increase.

Myoskeletal Alignment Technique Therapist

I attend workshops every year since 2014. I've been to Nashville, Boston, and Denver as well as watched hours of online education and have studied three of Erik Dalton's books. I integrated this technique into the majority of over 900 massage sessions last year alone.

Hot Stone Massage

Attended 16 hours of hands on training with Eric Stephenson at the beautiful Body Therapy Institute in Silk Hope, NC. I have been practicing hot stone massage since 2001. I now teach others the technique as Lead Therapist at Hand & Stone Massage Spa in Chapel Hill, NC.

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa - Lead Therapist

Interview and Train new therapist in Hot Stone massage, as well as other spa techniques we offered including Hot Towel Cold Stone Facials, Hand and Foot Scrub Treatments, and Aromatherapy.

Quantum Cystalline Energy Healing Practitioner

Renata McConnell of Chapel Hill, NC developed and teaches this system. Similar to Reiki and Eden Energy Medicine, this system works with the intricate energy of the body to increase the vibration and through the use of a specifically attuned set of crystals placed over the energy centers of the body as quantum crystalline energy infuses the body.

Fitness

Facial Movement Taping Practitioner

Orthopedic Assessment and treatment using kinesiology tape to improve performance and mobility as well as reduce inflammation, edema and pain. The tape is a woven cotten blend that stretches lengthwise to create lifting of the soft issue. Once applied, it can be worn for 5 to 7 days while you go about your normal daily activities (including showering and exercise) before removing, or until it falls off.

I like the combination of hand massage and hot rocks. The hot rocks compliment the hand massage.

First timer. I was hesitant at first as its been years since I have had anything like this. I actually typically never think about this type of treatment. I must say after being here and having work done on my back and shoulders I felt really good after the appointment. I will definately look into setting up more sessions with Dawn. Awesome, professional, explained why I was in pain and recommended other exercises and techniques to help me.

Love Dawn she's the best massage therapist I've had and for the 1st time in my life with all my injuries from car accidents I felt AMAZING after my massage :)

Dawn is amazing! This was my first massage and I was a little nervous but she made the situation and the whole experience very comfortable. It is clear she knows what she is doing and is very passionate about her profession and is very professional and personable. I am very pleased and will be making another appointment!

Dawn is amazing. I have had zero migraines since working with her. My range of motion and flexibility is improving. My sleep has also improved. Highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a great massage therapist.

How can someone dislike being massaged?! Well, I did have a bad massage once - the therapist did deep tissue massage on one area too long. Dawn works the body evenly, taking good care to let her fingers tell her vital info, paying attention, and proceeding accordingly.

I don't do massages that much with that being said Dawn made it a much more comfortable and relaxing experience than past massages I've had (2). I had been suffering from a headache and lower back pain for a couple of weeks and after my massage with dawn my neck/head felt brand new again. Thanks again Dawn
