I started my health and wellness career as a fitness instructor. After a few years, I decided that I wanted to do more to assist others in the health and wellness program by learning more in the massage therapy field.
In 1985, I attended massage school where

I am passionate about what I do and…
feel that massage therapy itself is a necessity not a luxury. I work with minimal conversation to create space for both mental and physical rejuvenation. I enjoy incorporating hot stones, warm towels and using aromatherapy to complete your session.

When I’m not holding a healing space and working on clients, I enjoy off roading and shooting archery, adventuring the beautiful outdoors, and enjoying the company of family and friends. Experience for yourself the great benefits of massage therapy!
I am a client-focused Massage Therapist, with over 30 years of experience in helping clients relieve their pain, gain range of motion, and release the daily stressors that can tie the body, mind, and spirit into a bundle of knots.

I am transfixed by the power of therapeutic bodywork. A simple hour or two on a table can yank me out of my head, back into my own body, and help me shift priorities to healing and wellness. After experiencing the transformative power of this work during a demanding time in my life, I wanted to bring it to others….
I started my massage practice in 2005 after graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage. I specialize in Myofascial work, and also offer Deep Tissue, Swedish, Lymphatic techniques, as well as Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage, Hot Stone Massage, and Aromatherapy. I’m particularly interested in the mind-body connection, and the role of bodywork in unwinding all types of trauma. While I was in private practice for many years in Baltimore, Maryland, I relocated to Prescott in 2017 and have been blessed to continue my career here.
I’m so grateful to the hundreds of clients who have allowed me to participate in their healing journey.
When not massaging, I’m also employed at a medical software company. In addition to my bodywork education, I’m a graduate of St. John’s College (Annapolis, 2003), and University of Baltimore School of Law (2014). I enjoy reading, travel, film, good tv, good whisky, good friends, good weather, good massages, and cooking.
Hi, my name is Josh, I attended the Arizona School of Integrative Studies here in Prescott, AZ. My goal is to help people live better lives by utilizing the healing benefits of massage and bodywork. My passion is to help heal people inside and out. I believe self-care is a MUST in today’s busy world. Regular bodywork and…
energy work are the keys to living up to your fullest potential. Massage can be beneficial to everyone when applied in the correct manner by a caring, knowledgeable therapist. I have proficiencies in Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, cranial-sacral reflexology, and therapeutic deep tissue. I bring all of that to one table, combining several modalities into one unique style designed to get the best therapeutic results to fit the client’s needs. My results-focused massage technique combines myo-fascial, deep tissue, and oriental techniques to provide lasting results. I am well versed in sports massage, cupping, and connective tissue as well. My future career goal in bodywork is in physical therapy.
During my off time, I am a novelist with 20 years of talent planning to publish my first work soon. I routinely practice Yoga to stay in shape and have started studying energy work. I like to spend my spare time traveling, hiking, and exploring the great outdoors with my dog Leo. I look forward to assisting you on your path to wellness.
I have been passionately studying and practicing integrated massage therapy since 2012. Drawing on over 1000 hours of training in massage modalities, as well as holding advanced certifications. I am excited to join the Valley of Vitality team and serve my hometown of Prescott. With years of experience working in…
spas, chiropractic clinics, and private practice, I have a wide array of skills and tools to meet your specific needs.
The reason I am passionate about my job is because of the powerful impact a massage can have on pain management, joint mobility, stress relief and so much more. Being an LMT is so rewarding because I can really help people with serious pain and discomfort that they have possibly been dealing with for years.
Not only is bodywork good for maintaining pain levels and health but it is fantastic for resolving neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, and myofascial dysfunctions. I try and build a professional relationship with every one of my clients to best serve their wellness journey.
From chronic pain and stress to working with professional athletes or elders, I am committed and confident in meeting you where you’re at and supporting your path forward.
My primary modalities include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Connective Tissue, Trigger Point, Sports, Lymphatic, Reflexology
and Biodynamic Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
When I am not working. My other passions include trail running, yoga, cycling, and music.
As a former police dispatcher, I observed the effects of a very high-stress environment on the human body. This inspired me to do two things. I aligned myself through a healthy, positive, and active connection to the world. 19 years ago, I dedicated myself to massage therapy to help others become more aware of their…
body’s message and to assist them to connect and ground themselves through their physical manifestation. As a skilled communicator, I have been able to encourage and guide clients to methods that will reduce repetitive stress and encourage deep relaxation. I work intuitively incorporating a repertoire of skills in spa treatments, myofascial, neuromuscular, deep tissue, Lomi Lomi, Swedish, and prenatal modalities and I can provide clients with an experience that aligns with their expectations at a pace that is comforting and appropriate.
As a former co-owner and director of a massage school, the Arizona School of Integrative Studies, I believe that touch is essential for everyone. The beauty of being part of massage education is the connections and transformations that come from receiving and giving. I love bodywork and how it helps all types of people. …
I recently joined A Valley of Vitality, to be part of a like-minded team of therapists and owners. Currently, I focus on “feel good” techniques such as Swedish and Deep Tissue, on all body types; small, large, pregnant, or athletic. I have had a massage practice since 1996 and hold advanced certifications in Neuromuscular Techniques (trigger points), Massage Teacher Training, and Sports Massage but have done many hours of continuing education in a diversity of modalities and techniques, from energy work to bodywork that specializes in accidents like whiplash to hot/cold therapies.
As a wife and mother, I am very involved with my family. Recently, I became a Yavapai County Master Gardener and spend time in the community volunteering at school habitats and gardens. In addition, my daughter is involved in 4-H, and we spend time raising chickens, turkeys, and bunnies, and practicing shooting sports. I live, surrounded by National Forrest on an eclectic property that was originally off-grid, where we implement sustainable living in efforts to have practices that promote healthy living. Cooking, massage, pottery, rock climbing, and being an entrepreneur are my interests.
As a graduate of the Arizona School of Integrative Studies, I became an LMT to fulfill a rewarding ever interesting career helping others achieve their health and wellness goals. After experiencing the benefits of massage, I wanted to assist others in receiving the same experience…
I learned during my education if someone has pain or stress in the mind or body massage for healing is a good outlet to use before anything else. As a therapist, I feel it’s important for anyone to have a full-body massage regularly, thereby helping to resolve unseen issues before a problem develops.
As a massage therapist, my responsibility to clients is a guide to help them gain a better state of relaxation and freedom from pain, anxiety, or general stress of their daily lives, if only for an hour. I also like to invite my clients to actively participate in their health and wellness, by providing the experience of peace and healing. As a therapist, I believe this is one of the greatest gifts, I can offer clients. One way I enjoy caring for individuals is through aromatherapy, heat therapy, and meaningful bodywork. In a balanced fashion, each client can access the deepest levels of relief and well-being.
Massage Therapy can help facilitate healing on many levels from your cells and muscle tissue to the emotional component of stress. One of my passions is sharing knowledge to empower clients on the importance of creating a healthy more balanced lifestyle, through a solid wellness plan. I hold firm that the body is in a state of dis-ease and needs restful, mindful therapy focusing on mind-body, and spirit to heal. I have studied several techniques of massage modalities including Swedish, Connective Tissue, Neuromuscular, Injury, Thai, Manual Lymph Drainage, and Craniosacral Therapy. By modifying the pressure of light, medium, or targeted deep tissue preferences, my clients can achieve the best results possible.
I received my massage training at the Heartwood Institute in Garberville, CA. in 1995. I incorporate many different styles of massage into my sessions. Some of these modalities include Swedish, deep tissue, Lomi Lomi…
sports massage, trigger point, Polarity therapy and arthritis hand massage. I feel confident in providing either deeply relaxing and rejuvenating massage or injury specific treatments. I prefer to use a medium to deep touch but may not be your therapist if you require extremely deep pressure. I love sharing the gift and art of massage therapy with my clients and am a firm believer in the healing power of human touch.
A native San Diegan, I have lived in Prescott for almost 2 decades and have 3 children. I am extremely passionate about health, healing, and overall, well-being. I practice yoga, try to walk daily, and am committed to vegetarianism. I really enjoy providing thorough, individualized, and effective massage for each client, every session.
I look forward to sharing my skills with you.
I believe massage is one of the greatest tools you can use to promote health. That’s why I have made it my goal as a therapist to continue to grow in this field. Specializing in deep tissue and sports massage. In the past 13 years I have strived to learn new modalities and techniques that would specifically benefit…
the needs of my clients through Continued Education Courses.
I graduated from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy in Phoenix, Arizona in 2010, with over 1000 clinical hours. Throughout my 13 years, I have helped people relieve the pain of injuries, stress, accidents, and body discomfort, as well as maintain good bodily and mental health. I have worked in spas and in a chiropractic office. Both areas of health have given me the opportunity to learn the fundamental elements that promote healing. I have since spent thousands of hours working to enhance the lives of other people through my education and personal empathy for the aches and pains that can be associated with labor intensive occupations. I look forward to meeting you and hope to see you on my table.
I began my career in massage therapy in 1994, graduating from Blue Cliff School of Massage, in New Orleans, LA., with a specialty in fibromyalgia, because I, myself, had fibromyalgia diagnosed at that time. Therefore, I am very familiar with how to treat a fibromyalgia client and how it feels from a client’s perspective…
Medical massage is my main specialty, and I started in 1994 by working on referrals from two different chiropractors, and in later years, working within a chiropractor’s office, until recently.
I am certified in Advanced Cupping, Medicupping and VacuTherapies for Healthcare Practitioners, by the two original certification organizations that teach cupping therapy in the United States: The International Cupping Therapy Association (ICTA) and by Advanced Continuing Education (A.C.E.) by Anita J. Shannon, Founder. I was also trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine Fire Cupping in 1994.
I have been integrating cupping therapies into my pain management massages as a form of myofascial release with great success over the years and have been getting very positive client feedback with both “stationary” cupping and silicone cupping “moving” or “gliding” cups without leaving marks.
Some of my specialty certifications, other than medical massage therapy and cupping, include: “Massage for the Childbearing Year” Pregnancy massage by the Founder, Carol Osborne-Sheets; Myofascial Release by John F. Barnes, P.T.; Original LaStone Therapy, LaStone Therapy, Inc.; Lypossage, by Charles W. Wiltsie, III, Founder.
I like to do an eclectic blend of massage, including foot reflexology, and acupressure along meridians (Shiatsu), along with Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, and some mild to moderate deep tissue, as needed. I let the client’s body guide me as to what they need, and, of course, along with their preferences. It’s very important to me that there is communication from the client about what they are needing and the amount of pressure that is preferred.
I may not be your best therapist if you require a very deep pressure, because I do not feel that deep pressure is necessarily the only way to provide the necessary release of fascial restrictions and for pain management.
I really enjoy helping people with cervical pain and back pain, using different techniques, including neuromuscular therapy (NMT), myofascial release therapy (MFR), and some gentle stretching.
If possible, I feel that a really good pain management massage is 90 minutes with an eclectic blend of techniques, including cupping. However, pain management can be specific to certain areas of the body in a good 60 – minute medical massage.
When I am not doing massage, I enjoy making beaded jewelry, watching movies, researching health and wellness topics, traveling, photography, and being a part-time private tour guide!
I received my training in Massage Therapy from the Arizona School of Integrative Studies in Prescott, Arizona, in 2016. I have years of experience in performing massage and bodywork, as well as in a chiropractic office.
I have been drawn to holistic styles of healing from a young age, including massage, yoga and…
energy work. I have dedicated my adult life to learning and utilizing these skills to bring healing and wellness to my clients.
I have loved the journey to becoming a Massage Therapist and healer, and have learned so many valuable tools and skills along the way. I strive to help people, and assist in their healing, whether mental, emotional or physical. I take great care in holding space for each individual, creating a safe and compassionate environment that best supports their healing process.
Nobody is the same. I aim to deliver a massage tailored to the individual’s needs, intuitively adjusting my techniques to best serve my clients. The modalities I integrate most are Deep Tissue, Swedish, Connective Tissue, Cupping, Aromatherapy, and Prenatal massage. I have taken a variety of continuing education courses, and am passionate about growing my knowledge and skills.
I have certifications in Reiki, as well as being a Registered Yoga Teacher. I have invested time in other healing arts, in order to create a cohesive foundation to best serve my clients.
I am a Prescott Native, and have a lot of love for this town. I am a mother and wife, and my family is the most precious thing to me.
I love to get out in nature, and enjoy living in the forest. I am passionate about yoga, creating art, dancing, and spending time with my family and friends. I look forward to seeing you on my table.
I was incredibly blessed to have received my first professional massage at 16. The deep level of peace I had experienced inspired me to attend night classes as a senior in high school, graduating in 2005 with my Diploma and Massage Therapy License. I feel most at home and love working in beautiful, serene spa…
environments. Most recently, I ran an AirBnB with a Spa out of my home in Camp Verde, and spent 7 years as a Massage Therapist and Natural Aesthetician at a Luxury 5 Star Destination Spa in Sedona, Arizona. I fell in love with Prescott, so I decided to make the move!
I really have honed my skills at delivering the most nourishing and soothing Swedish Massages, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Sessions, Foot Reflexology, Lymphatic, and Cupping Massage. I am heavily trained in Hungarian face lift massage techniques, and my face, head, neck and scalp massages will transport you to other worlds!
My favorite modality to offer is a 60-minute Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy combined with or woven into a 90-minute Custom Vitality Massage. The level of deep inner stillness and peace that can be experienced through Craniosacral work can take you to dimensions beyond this reality, shifting you into a higher state of conscious awareness while helping you to land more fully healed and balanced in your body. My touch is very intuitive, and intentionally nurturing, ranging from light to deep pressure, with my best range landing somewhere between medium and firm. I love incorporating CBD, hot towels, aromatherapy and hot stones.
Massage is not just a luxury, but an absolute necessity. Personally, it has been my main ally for pain, imbalance, and distress that I might be experiencing on any level whether it be physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual. The simple, yet transformative power of nurturing, kind and intentional touch can leave you feeling nourished at such core levels within yourself that you might not have even previously been aware you were lacking.
I do my best to lead a healthy and active lifestyle, and spend my free time attending hot yoga and pole fitness classes, going for long walks or hard hikes out in nature, working in my garden, trekking to hot springs, or swimming and doing cold plunges in the surrounding lakes.

Maggie Clark/Studio Manager
I believe the most important aspects of wellness are happiness and joy which is what I love to share with every client and employee. Creating a peaceful and compassionate flow of energy in the studio facilitates the optimum environment for healing on every level.
My goal is to uplift each individual with a caring and positive space. My hope is that this healing vibration will expand consciousness and connection to body, mind, and spirit. I love supporting a team who is dedicated to provide the most rejuvenating and beneficial services.
I have been in the healing arts profession since 2011 specializing in Jin Shin Jyutsu®, Craniosacral Therapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu for Your Animal Companion® and Canine Massage.
When I am not in the studio, I am most likely walking my dog, podcasting in my studio, dancing with my husband or spending meditative time in nature.
