Massage Therapists listen with their hands and their hearts!

  •    When I was a child I would always massage my sister's arms and my dad's legs and feet. I was told then that I was amazing. When I saw a commercial for Austin School of Massage Therapy I signed up. I am glad because within 2 weeks I knew this was a career for me. 
  •   I went to Austin School of Massage Therapy in Waco, Texas in 2001-2002. I ran my own business and loved it. After moving around many years, for my husband's Army career, and having 3 beautiful children we settled down in Alabama....

    Notable Experiences

    Bodywork
    Chair Massage
    I can come to businesses, parties, runs, sports, events, ect. to give chair massages.
    Myofascial Release
    Myofascial release (or MFR) is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This alternative medicine therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles. Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle. Fascia supports and protects these structures. Osteopathic theory proposes that this soft tissue can become restricted due to psychogenic disease, overuse, trauma, infectious agents, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow. Although fascia and its corresponding muscle are the main targets of myofascial release, other tissue may be addressed as well, including other connective tissue
    Sports Massage
    I have worked on athlete of all sorts: body builders, football players, baseball players, horse riders, runners, cross fitters, fitness instructors and my newest athlete is an Olympic Gold Medalist for Hockey.
    Swedish
    Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. If it's your first time at the spa or you don't get massage very often, Swedish massage is the perfect massage for you.
    Pregnancy
    I am certified to do Prenatal Massage. Pregnancy is wonderful and stressful. With many body changes muscles get sore. I work to make you feel relaxed and wonderful. Congratulations mom!
    Medical
    As a medical massage therapist medical/clinical massage, is my prime treatment. I focus on your problem areas while keeping it relaxing. After the session, I will talk to you about our plan for any future treatment to continue to improve your body health. Every massage is customized to your needs and wants.
    Other
    Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. The British Cupping Society says that cupping therapy is used to treat: Blood disorders such as anemia and hemophilia, Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, Fertility and gynecological disorders, Skin problems such as eczema and acne, High blood pressure, Migraines, Anxiety and depression, Bronchial congestion caused by allergies and asthma, and Varicose veins.
    Deep Tissue
    I specialize in Deep Tissue Massage without it being painful. Along with my hands, I can use essential oils, prossage and hydrotherapy to aid me in deep tissue. This will help me be able to work out any deep tension without bruising any superficial muscles. This helps keep the deep tissue massage enjoyable and not painful.

    Brandi, Carlie loves coming to you!! She says that you are absolutely great at massage! For someone who is usually timid, she has no problem letting me know when she's ready to come back! Thank you!

    Brandi was excellent! The massage was, by far, the best I have ever received. She not only did a great job during the massage but took time afterward to explain exercises I could do at home to help with the muscle tension.
