"Nature does not hurry but everything is accomplished"
- Lao Tzu

I have been practicing massage therapy since 2003. Through a combination of clinical knowledge and intuition of the body, I strive to adapt to each individual's needs. I feel healing is an art form, which is a unique process for each individual. As a therapist, my role is a facilitator and I am honored to help each person find their own healthful balance in their bodies. Through massage, I can address discomfort or simply provide an opportunity to quiet the daily responsibilities. This allows you to reconnect with yourself and the amazing body that carries you around.

  • Neuromuscular Therapy
  • Deep tissue / Myofascial Release / Trigger Point
