Cortiva Institute for Massage Therapy. Graduated 2013.
“My style of massage is what I would call a ‘therapeutic flow.’ I love addressing specific areas with a detailed massage and incorporating stretching in a way that feels like the body is whole. The mixture of relaxation and a therapeutic session leaves you feeling balanced. Having my experience in chiropractic offices and different types of spas, I believe that if one type of massage doesn’t seem to be working, there is always another way.”
Athletes, Chiropractic, Headaches, Neck and Shoulder tension, Trigger Point, Neuromuscular Therapy and Myofascial Release Techniques.
“A former client of mine had a shoulder injury. He was getting limited mobility, spasms, numbness and tingling through his right arm and fingers. I saw him for 20 mins twice a week. Working on his neck and his right arm along the Teres major and minor, I focused on the spasms and found multiple trigger points. After about a month of treatment, the pain, spasms, numbness and tingling subsided.”
WHAT MAKES YOUR MASSAGES UNIQUE?
“I believe what makes my massage unique is that my flow and pressure adapts to each client. The way I slowly feel and adjust to both injury or tension. I make sure I am detailed and try to get each area and making it feel like the massage was a complete full body.”

WHAT DO YOU MOST APPRECIATE WHEN RECEIVING MASSAGE?
“I love when the therapist listens carefully. When they approach the massage as not just another client on the table. Makes sure during the massage that I am comfortable with the pressure.”
WHAT KEEPS YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT MASSAGE?
“What I love about massage therapy is that I get to help other people in ways that others cannot. There is an energy transfer and calmness during a session that one experiences that you can’t explain. It’s awesome for both the client and the therapist. Also, there is always something new to learn with a different approach or another modality.”
