“I am so happy to be in a career and community that shares a common goal: to help increase the well-being of those around us. Through massage I create a detailed, compassionate, and conscientious therapeutic treatment. I seek constant growth and improvement for not only myself, but to improve the quality of life for my clients. I love learning more about massage because I can apply and share the techniques I learn. This allows me to feel like I’m making a difference.”

“I had a client with severe pain in his left hip and IT band. His job was strenuous, involving heavy lifting, squatting, and driving for long periods at a time. After eight sessions using a detailed massage plan I created, he was able to sit and stand with no pain. He continues to have no pain during his work duties and in his daily life through receiving regular massage.”
WHAT MAKES YOUR MASSAGES UNIQUE?

I’m diligent in the areas that the client wants worked on, and in tune to other possible areas of discomfort.”
