Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation in who you are. -Chinese Proverb

I graduated from Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2004. After school I worked at a local hospital and was the lead massage therapist working with patients in ICU, Med/Surg, Pre Op, and New Life. In addition to that I worked in the Physical Therapy department where I would work with people that had chronic pain, joint replacements and anyone who needed general relaxation.

I graduated from Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2004. After school I worked at a local hospital and was the lead massage therapist working with patients in ICU, Med/Surg, Pre Op, and New Life. In addition to that I worked in the Physical Therapy department where I would work with people that had chronic pain, joint replacements and anyone who needed general relaxation.

My husband and I decided to pursue our dreams and make the move to Washington in 2012. Since I have been in Washington I have worked on many people in need of pain reduction, general relaxation or help in reducing anxiety and depression.

What I love about massage is helping people feel good, helping people to take time to be conscious of the body as a whole and helping people feel a little less anxious in this fast paced world. My work has brought many different people and bodies on my table. I have experience in neuromuscular/injury treatment, prenatal/postpartum, intraoral and relaxation where I provide massage at my private practice in Tacoma.

I have been coming to Varity for the past 6 years and have followed her from several different locations during that time because I am so happy with her massage care. Whether I'm dealing with stress, an acute injury, or an ongoing problem area she adapts her treatment accordingly. I feel listened to, my current state of body and mind addressed, our time well-managed. Overall, I always leave feeling better than when I arrived. I am very grateful to have this practice available. I have referred others who have been very happy as well.
