I am a graduate of DiscoveryPoint School of Massage with a particular interest in the mind-body connection. I am fascinated in how mental and emotional stresses can manifest in the physical body and cause pain, illness and disease. With the belief that human touch is a basic need and a powerful healing tool, my goal is to help you feel free in your body, mind and soul.  


I am a compassionate listener with a warm and grounded approach. Drawing from both professional and personal experience, I aim to help clients achieve their goals of healing, restoration, well-being, and growth.


As an active body, I have relied on body work for maintenance and repair to keep moving comfortably and efficiently.  After a devastating injury, massage played a key role in my rehabilitation, both physically and mentally. I have no doubt that regular treatment early on significantly improved my recovery time and greatly enhanced the end result.


I am also a biostatistician involved in clinical trials in cancer research. I am an avid bike commuter and find joy in dancing, trail running, and practicing yoga.

A massage with Shay is one of those rare experiences that is better than I expect it will be!

Shay is amazing. Kind and skilled. I will be back for sure!

I found that Shay possesses a deep and natural instinct for the cranial work she offers.

Shay's attention to detail and kindness were very much appreciated. She has lovely healing hands and I look forward to working with her again.

Shay is very intuitive and sensitive to how energy moves in the body. I had sprained my foot several weeks earlier, and it was taking its time to heal - but I totally noticed a difference after just one healing session with Shay. The next day I was almost back to full use of my foot again. Cranial Sacral Therapy is very powerful because it works on such a fine, subtle level. I totally recommend trying it out if you are curious. SiriOM Kaur Kundalini Yoga Teacher

Location is a bit old and hard to get to. Otherwise the service was great!

Shay has a lovely presence. She is calm and present. Shay listens not only to your words but to your body and acts accordingly. I leave appointments feeling better than when I arrived.

Shay does excellent work. After yesterday's appointment my mid-back and shoulders felt great. I have an unfortunate amount of job-induced stress, so I will be returning as often as my schedule permits.

For me, the tell-tale sign of a great massage is my inability to get up at the conclusion of the hour (can't). My time with Shay is relaxing and I feel great after. Happy to have found a good massage therapist in the neighborhood!
