"Studies have shown massage to have positive effects on conditions from colic to hyperactivity to diabetes to migraines - in fact, on every malady Touch Research Institutes has studied thus far."

The AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) describes massage as:

The manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes, including but not limited to the use of effleurage, petrissage, pressure, friction, tapotement, kneading, vibration, range-of-motion stretches, and any other soft tissue manipulation whether manual or by mechanical or electrical apparatus, and also includes the use of oils, herbal lotion, creams, salt, hydrotherapy, hot packs, and cold packs.

Massage Techniques



My goal is to provide you with an atmosphere that is both relaxing and comfortable.  A place where you may receive soothing, healing and recuperative benefits from massage.  You and your family will find relief from life’s muscle aches, pains, ailments, stresses, and injuries.


I incorporate a variety of massage techniques to meet the needs of the body's healing treatment.  I am certified in Basic Swedish Massage, Relaxation Techniques, NeuroMuscular therapies (myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, trigger point therapy, positional release) and Sports Massage.  I also offer Hot Stone Massage and Body Treatments (cellulite reduction, anti-aging, non-surgical body lifting and reduction, detoxification).  


Massage does not replace the need for medical attention.  Massage therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones.  Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one.  There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.  Complete the Massage Therapy Client History/Intake Form and Consent Form.


Massage and bodywork can help reduce chronic pain; reduce swelling; improve posture; loosen tight muscles; improve muscle and skin tone; speed recovery from injuries and illness; increase joint flexibility and range of motion; strengthen the immune system; increase blood and lymph circulation; lower blood pressure; reduce stress; promote better sleep; and provide a feeling of well-being.
