Summary:

"When I started doing massage I was so thrilled to be able to help people become well. Sixteen years later I still get a thrill in helping people; the difference now is that I am more experienced and I have a lot more knowledge. My Career is not just a job; it is who I am and what I love to do!"

Success Stories: 

"I had a client who had a double mastectomy; the scar extended across her breast, was large and made it so she could not move her arms above her shoulder without pain. My treatment for scar tissue realignment, helped her to once again have full movement. My best memory of this was the smile on my clients face when she showed me her regained movement."

What makes your massages unique?

"Being a massage therapist for the past 16 years has taught me compassion, and to look not with my eyes but with my hands and my mind. Having extensive knowledge about the body, especially my training and practical experience as a Certified Surgical Technologist has given me an advantage most LMTs do not have."

"The challenge to help my clients to feel better through my knowledge and variety of modalities."
