I love optimizing!

I enjoy the various challenges the human body presents and helping you get long term, positive results! I have a passion for helping people who are experiencing pain and muscle strain. The body is an amazing machine; one with emotions, chemical interactions and reactions, and the ability to change with knowledge and intent. I am fascinated by, and love to optimize, this machine called the human body.

I enjoy the various challenges the human body presents and helping you get long term, positive results! I have a passion for helping people who are experiencing pain and muscle strain. The body is an amazing machine; one with emotions, chemical interactions and reactions, and the ability to change with knowledge and intent. I am fascinated by, and love to optimize, this machine called the human body.

In helping to resolve this pain, I employ Structural Integration techniques which result in lasting change, especially when combined with client education and active participation in their wellness. By utilizing other modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue massage, intraoral massage, dynamic and static cupping, and other methods, combined with knowledge and intuition gained from six years performing orthopedic assessments and massage on individuals from all walks of life, my track record speaks for itself.

I look forward to working with you so you can live the good life.

Scottia's depth of understanding about anatomy and medical conditions causing chronic pain make her perfect for me. I have been to her three times and will be going back on a regular basis.

Tia is terrific at myofascial release and identifying things that I may be doing to aggravate my problem areas. She is always giving me stretching ideas as well as assessing how my movements have improved or need more attention. A+++++

Tia was amazing! She first examines your body for any posture problems, has a thorough discussion with you about any issues, and then works on everything you discussed. She is very good. I had shoulder and neck issues and had no idea how bad they were. After the massage, I was amazed at how much movement I had in my shoulders and neck.

Tia was amazing at finding trouble spots that needed to be loosened up! She was a great communicator to ensure the pressure was just right! I felt wonderful afterwards and slept the best in months ...Staci

Scottia was extremely thorough and really paid attention to the areas of my back that needed the most work. I appreciated that she also advised me on treatment such as stretching and ice outside of the massage. She applied just the right amount of pressure too which is really important to me! Highly recommend!
