About the Therapist

Why I Became a Massage Therapist

Many years ago I received a massage after having surgery, and it was the most powerful, healing experience I have ever had. During that session I realized massage is not only relaxing, but can also be very therapeutic & healing – for body, mind, and spirit. Shortly thereafter, I left my prior profession to pursue a career in the healing arts.

Whether you need a little relaxation and pampering, or are recovering from an injury, illness, or stress, why not give massage a try? I will tailor a massage to your specific needs. This may include techniques such as Swedish massage, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, orthopedic and sports massage, shiatsu, reiki, or any number of other techniques I have studied.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
