Introduced to Massage Therapy at a young age and revisited the concepts of the benefits of Massage into my 20’s when working physical jobs and standing on my feet for long hours.

In my practice I listen to each client’s concerns and needs and incorporate appropriate techniques and pressure to soft tissues to bring about relief of pain, movement limitations, pre and post surgery and injury rehabilitation as well as positively effecting the nervous system to calm the brain and body. I work with Pediatric to Palliative and every age in between. My approach incorporates Swedish Massage Techniques as well as Manual Lymphatic Drainage, stretching and exercise, Fascial Release, Trigger Point Pain release Pre and Post Natal and Cupping. The list of conditions that Massage Therapy can assist with is long, just ask!
