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.

Thank you for fixing my shoulder!

Dawn is very professional, knowledgeable, and creates a safe and soothing atmosphere. She was able to work out the tight muscles in my neck due to an auto accident and continuse to work on my legs to overcome some running injuries.

Dawn knew exactly what my sore shoulder needed; I've never had such a thorough massage! Her technique isn't just repeatedly applying deep pressure to the problem area; her technique is understanding the root cause of the issue and working with the problem area. My shoulder feels much better today, thanks to Dawn. :)

Dawn is the best! I haven't met anyone with such a skill, she is able to fix my shoulders and I feel OK with them for almost a month after she takes care of me! I have a past in martial arts and break-dancing (spinning on back :-( )...
