What do you like most about massage? I love how massage heals individuals, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. The vital, healing touch that we provide as massage therapists alleviate pains, heal injuries, soothe stress, comfort the sick and the grieving. From maintenance to preventative care massage is the perfect self-care that I honestly believe everyone deserves. I love being a part of this journey with my clients, it’s special and sacred and I love knowing that in some way I am improving people’s lives and making their day, week or month just a little better and little healthier.
What are your favorite modalities / specialties? One of the most amazing things about massage is its ability to be diverse. I love utilizing a wide array of different techniques and modalities to create the perfect session for each of my clients. There is an importance to being able to blend both treatment work with relaxation but if I had to choose my favorite it would be Orthopedic, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and Reiki. I’m also very fond of neck and shoulder and pec work to help alleviate tension headaches, migraines, and TMJ.
Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective? I have seen a combination of all these modalities dramatically improve the health and wellness of my clients.
Anything special you'd like to share about yourself? I am a mother of two beautiful children, a boy and a girl. I have always considered myself a healer. Lastly I am a video gaming, fantasy writing, board gaming, dungeons and dragons playing nerd.
