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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Varity is wonderful, and I always feel amazing when I leave. She takes the time to ask if I need focus in any particular area, which makes me feel like I get the most out of my massage.

Another wonderful massage. Varity has this amazing skill of working out all your kinks and relaxing you all at the same time. I’m already looking forward to my next visit.

I always leave so much better than when I come in! I highly recommend getting a 90 minute session. Variety is the best!

Best massage and overall experience I've ever had. Varity had a very welcoming and calming energy, as did her space. Will be back again very soon.

Varity has an energy that immediately puts you at ease. Warm, kind, inviting and truly, she is a healer. She is well versed in many different massage techniques and uses them effectively. Whether you need specific areas targeted or are looking to de-stress, Varity can deliver! Not only does she soothe away muscle aches and pain but, for the time I am with her, my mind is at ease. I have been seeing her now for about 6 years and have so much gratitude for the healing she has provided - which has been essential to my well being. I recommend her to everyone I know and will forever do so!
