About Us

Manual Therapy for Maximum Health  -  

Manual Therapy is much more than a massage. It's multiple techniques combined for maximum health and wellness. Each session is customized to individual needs.

As a Manual Therapist I combine multiple techniques to achieve the needs and goals of each of my clients. My specialty is CranioSacral Therapy, however I am also trained in Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, Therapeutic Massage, Orthopedic Massage, Visceral Manipulation, and Equine Massage Therapy. Each session can either be a specific modality, or a combination of the above.

My private practice is located at the Southport Healing Arts Center, located at 420 N Howe Street in Southport. (The bright blue building!) Equine Massage Therapy is held at individual stables throughout the county.
