Creating Balance Through Touch

I have been a massage therapist for over 25 years and I love helping people feel better. My experience with massage started out by receiving massage to help me relax and decrease general tightness.

I have been a massage therapist for over 25 years and I love helping people feel better. My experience with massage started out by receiving massage to help me relax and decrease general tightness. I was driving a delivery truck at the time and that job definitely took its toll on my body. Massage therapy helped relieve the job related pain and tightness so much I referred some of my coworkers to get a professional massage. A few years after I started receiving massage I had a sports related shoulder injury. My massage therapist helped to rehabilitate my shoulder injury in just a few short months. I was so impressed by the results I asked where she went to school to learn massage and three months later I was enrolled in massage therapy school. Twenty-two years later I am still loving it. Clients come to me with specific issues like headaches, lymphedema, sports injuries and some come for relaxation. No matter what the issue is, I will utilize all of my training and skills to help them feel better. I am a big believer in “what goes around, comes around” so my goal is to help my clients in whatever way I can.

My massage was great. I felt very relaxed and I felt like Rob understood my lymphedema issues. Only complaint is I wish I could afford to return more often.
