"I come from a family of massage therapists who have given me experience both as a client and practitioner, hopefully giving me a unique understanding as your therapist. I enjoy bringing the experience that touch can soothe and aid in the healing process. I enjoy performing Craniosacral, Reiki and Myofascial Release. I am pleased to knead you."

Most Experience Treating:
- Energy blocks
- Low back pain
- Abdominal work
- Injury treatment
"I had a client who had fallen off a ladder resulting in an injured shoulder, a broken left wrist, and a sprained right wrist. Her wrists were treated but her shoulder was presumed sprained and the pain ignored for a half a year until she reported she was able to use her arm very little. Surgery was performed, reattaching muscles to their approximate places. A year and a half after the surgery her muscle restriction was still severe. At that point I began working with her, treating both wrists and her right shoulder. After six 90-minute treatments her range of motion increased significantly. She became able to lift her arm above her head, complete exercises, and do yard work like mowing without her wrist aching and her shoulder becoming severely painful. Minor edema in the arms went down as well after we addressed restrictions in her rib cage. I used cupping, deep tissue, cranial sacral, tender point release, sports massage techniques, trigger point therapy and Reiki. She was very happy with the results."
What makes your massages unique?
"My massages are unique because I am constantly adding new techniques and modalities to my abilities; I wish to create an eclectic method of massage incorporating many modalities. I bring an intent to customize every massage to the client’s needs and have them leave feeling complete and happy."

What keeps you passionate about massage therapy?
"Massage therapy is an ever evolving career that continuously invites one to learn and change as a person and practitioner. I could never get bored with or tired of massage because there will always be more to learn and experience. The human body is fascinating. What you can learn by working with the body is akin to a secret language that massage therapists all speak in different dialects. It is amazing to see the story of a life written on a body, in its muscles, scars and reactions."
