My Philosophy

My practice philosophy involves considering every aspect of a person’s being to provide effective therapeutic massage.  Although it is inarguably important to assess the physical elements that contribute to tension and pain, it is equally vital to consider emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of health.  Emotional unrest often accompanies any injury or chronic physical discomfort.  By using therapeutic massage techniques, I work with the client to release physical muscle tension, as well as the emotional blockages inhibiting his or her personal growth.  Although I utilize primarily Swedish massage, I also incorporate elements of Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy.  Both techniques are gentle, and when used in conjunction with Swedish massage, allow the client’s body greater receptivity to healing on a deeper level.  I strive to understand the client’s therapeutic needs, while incorporating my own intuitive judgment, in order to create a treatment plan utilizing my techniques to address the client’s concerns.  I hope to empower my clients with the knowledge and strategies necessary to implement self-healing techniques that complement the massages they receive.  

In addition to practicing massage, I am also a Reiki practitioner, and in the process of becoming a Certified Aromatherapist. 


A little bit about me

I became a massage therapist because I wanted to help people heal in a way that is very personal and holistic.  It is a health practice that is positive and enjoyable for the majority, which I find is key in helping people develop into their best selves. This not only complements Western medicine in treating existing medical conditions, but it also aids in the prevention of dis-ease in all aspects of the self.  Massage therapy and Reiki have allowed me to create a healing space where I can accompany my clients on their journeys of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  

I have a passion for all things holistic health: massage therapy, energy work, Reiki, aromatherapy, psychology, etc.  I like to keep in physical shape by dancing (tap and jazz), practicing yoga, and going on nature walks and hikes.  I have an amazing, supportive network of family and friends; I love spending time with them at every opportunity.  Although I am a lover of all animals, I am partial to cats and have three awesome ones of my own.  These passions of mine have helped me to develop into my best self and bolster my mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Practicing self-care through enjoying hobbies contributes to my own development of my best self.
