“Every client presents a unique challenge that allows me to help them reach their health goals. Listening to clients’ challenges and putting together a bodywork plan is much like putting together puzzle pieces to create a complete picture.”

Most Experience Treating:
- Teeth Grinding
"I had a client come in with a chronically tight injured back. It was as if someone had inserted a metal claw into his back, twisted it clockwise, making the four corners draw in towards the center. There was also an area almost 2 inches across in the middle where the tissue deeper down looked torn. After performing 90-minute sessions for once a week over the course of 6 months, I got his back to relax down to a maintenance level. During the sessions, I would use various massage techniques, hot towels, hot stones, peppermint, sports balm. The 2-inch area had reduced down to an inch and was much less visible. He only came in for two more sessions after this as he was feeling less tight and guarded in his back."
What makes your massages unique?
"Clients over the years have come in and stated that they don’t have any focus because they know I am very intuitive. I have a talent for finding issues that my clients didn’t even know they had."

What do you most appreciate when receiving massage?
"I appreciate someone who is able to read the body and tissue, and doesn’t just push through it."
What keeps you passionate about massage therapy?
"People are caught up in what I call the ‘drive through way of LIVING,’ where everyone is go, go, go, and never taking the time to slow down and take care of themselves. Massage is a way to bring balance back into everyday life."
