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.

This was by far the best healing massage I have ever had in fact I'm going again next week for a 90 min massage thank you for being a big part of my whole body healing

Varity was super intuitive with understanding my body and how much it could take. I had plenty of knots and left feeling super relieved and taken care of. I will be recommending her to my friends and hopefully returning soon.

I’ve been coming to Varity for almost 5 years and I am always very pleased with the whole experience. I especially appreciate that she is charging on a sliding scale because I can pay more if I am able but if I’m in a tight spot I can still afford the wonderful service.
