Our clients seek my services for long term relief from Pain, Muscle Tension, and Stress often caused by structural imbalances and injuries. I work with my clients by listening, observing and researching their conditions to design a treatment plan based on their unique goals, life movements, Posturology assessment and a strong knowledge of anatomy and muscle function. When a client comes to me looking for pain relief I focus on relieving the cause of their pain. I don’t want to send any one away with temporary relief, just to have the pain return in a few days or a week. I have long term goals for you…. Pain free goals. Together we un-wind, un-stick, push through and reeducate the muscular system so that it is communicating clearly with the nervous system and creating a light, pain free body for you to live in. I enjoy receiving structural massage and Deep tissue massage is defiantly one of my specialties as I enjoy the deep relaxation and invigorating effect it has on the entire body.
Trust, respect and integrity are the foundations of all relationships. We strive to be good communicators and recognize the value of each of our clients as individuals. You are not a number but a unique individual. We are here because of and for you.

Our clients come to see me for relief from muscle soreness, stress and tension. I enjoy providing our clients with the Deep Tissue Full Body Wellness Massage and the Focus Work Session. It’s interesting and inspiring to look for and release Trigger Points, Tightness and Restrictions in the muscles that are causing a client’s tension. It gives me deep satisfaction when a client feels the relief from tension and tightness, feeling lighter, less stressed and more at ease in their body.
The therapeutic nature of the massage we provide allows me to see positive change in a client’s wellbeing over period of time. It is my goal for each person To be more aware of their body , To be able to listen to the cues their body gives, To learn natural ways of dealing with stress, pain and life in general and To be accepting of themselves and others as we strive together to continually improve . . I find as the physical body unwinds, the mind will be more grounded and life seems to get a bit less muddy. Because every day I get the opportunity to improve someone’s day, week, month or life I strive to do my best every massage every time.

Our clients come to see me for relief from chronic pain, stress and tension. I enjoy providing our clients with the Deep Tissue Full Body Wellness Massage and the Focus Work Session. Within each massage session I combine over 14 years of training, experience, and exploration in to therapeutic and spa modalities. My goal is to provide you with a wellness massage that is detailed and unique to your needs. I begin by finding the just right amount of deep pressure you enjoy, then I add a heavy dose of deep relaxation to create a feeling of restoration, balance and vitality. I am drawn to adhesions and muscle restrictions and I enjoy sifting through what I find to relive the burden and pull of tight muscle tissue. I find it very rewarding when a client feels the relief from tension and tightness, less stressed, with the ability to move and even breathe better after their massage. Ask me about Thai Table Massage! I love it and it is a stretching technique I incorporate in to The Focus Massage Sessions especially for low back tension.
