I believe that every aspect of a person…mind,body and spirit…can benefit from receiving massage therapy.  My mission as a Licensed Massage Therapist is to treat every individual according to their specific needs.  Each session is customized to meet those needs by integrating various modalities of massage such as; Swedish massage, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy and neuromuscular therapy into each session.  I am committed to my personal growth and continuing education as a massage therapist and to working together with my clients to promote their education and participation in this powerful self-healing process.

My interest in sports massage was cultivated in my youth, when as a soccer player, I developed a debilitating muscle spasm in my quadricep between tournament games. I assumed I’d have to sit out the next match because my leg was cramping so bad. Fortunately, there was a licensed massage practitioner at the tournament  offering free sports massage. He guided me through a few stretches while massaging my leg muscles, and my quadricep cramp finally released. I thought he was a miracle worker! That experience planted a seed for me to pursue body work and sports medicine. But more importantly, to pursue these things to help other people achieve stability, maintain balance, and reach their full potential.

From casual weekend warriors, to everyday athletes, to competitive racers, and even individuals seeking muscle release and relaxation, my passion is to help YOU through massage.

The goal for my massage clients is to improve overall wellness and balance. I achieve that by employing massage techniques to speed up the healing/recovery process, raising and maintaining peak performance, increasing muscle function, and relaxing or pumping-up the individual or athlete (depending on the training phase). I aim to create an experience that is healing, restorative, and effective for my clients. I believe in a collaborative effort. That means we’ll work together to help you reach your potential, through specialized treatment massage, education, progressive goal setting, nurturing touch, and healing care. I look forward to working with you!
