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.

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.
My career in the wellness industry started in 2015 as a caregiver, which turned into a certified nursing assistant. The work, while rewarding, was taxing both mentally and physically. It left me feeling empty by the end of the day, so knowing I always loved helping people and was fascinated with the human body, I fell in….
love with massage therapy.
After graduating from the Arizona School of Integrative Studies, my career developed into something that produced a positive environment for both myself and clients. My skills include two favorite modalities, Swedish Massage and Craniosacral Therapy. Although these therapies are preferred, I am not limited to just those techniques.
In many cases, patients require multiple therapies to heal, such as point therapy, cupping, connective tissue, and many different stretching techniques. Whether or not your body needs… relaxation, a therapeutic focus, or a combination of both, I assess my client’s needs and can help them to find a wellness program to achieve their desired results.
Self-care is something that should not be neglected, especially as we age. Therefore, implanting a regular massage program can help us heal from the stresses of everyday life. Our bodies are not meant to always be on the go without downtime. Massages can improve blood flow, lower blood pressure and promote healthy restful sleep, which can increase flexibility and overall movement.
When I have free time some of my favorite things are family first, and spending time at the beach. There is something about the crashing waves, the smell of the salty air, and don’t forget the sand between my toes. Anytime I can be outside in the fresh air it promotes health, you could say, the way I feel being at the beach is how I feel practicing massage. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in a holistic journey to better health.
