"If you are centered, you can move freely." - Morihei Ueshiba

I became a massage practitioner after my personal journey with pain and discomfort from ergonomic work stress.  My initial reason for beginning massage treatments began as pro-active to counteract ergonomic postures with my job as a dental hygienist.  Throughout the years my conviction has only grown for the range of conditions massage/bodywork can help with.  One of the greatest results massage/bodywork can bring is self awareness and a greater understanding of your physical body in daily life.  By being aware of subtle signs its possible to recognize harmful postures, activities, and ergonomics to self-correct. 


My experience as a massage client has led me to understand how varied each massage therapists approach and personality can affect the treatment outcome.  On several different occasions I have tried a new massage therapist with rave reviews from a friend and have left the appointment feeling underwhelmed.  I believe the professional relationship between a client and massage therapist is vital to the treatment results.  Compatibility is difficult to evaluate based on reading a bio or even from a friends recommendation, so I offer the first massage appointment at 1/2 price ($30).  I consider this first appointment an "interview" for the client to decide if their expectations were met, they were comfortable, and their concerns were addressed.

People seek massage for many different reasons and have personal preferences that are just as greatly varied.  My approach to each massage is unique to the clients needs and preferences.  I do not have a pre-programmed sequence or a one-size-fits-all massage routine.  I listen to my clients concerns, and encourage feedback throughout the appointment and work in large part by intuition and experience.

Game Changer! Amazed at how much relief I felt and amazed at how many muscles are in the face and jaw that we don't usually pay attention to. My face feels longer.
