I am committed to the idea that regular massage helps people live better, healthier lives. I believe the science behind massage therapy, listening to clients and being intuitive, all play an active role in providing the best results possible for each individual client.
Clients of all ages, occupations and lifestyles come to me to feel better. Manage stress, ease stiff, sore muscles, recover faster from strenuous workouts, decrease medication dependence or improve range of motion, massage therapy is a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
I use a variety of modalities as part of my practice, which includes Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, stretching and Reiki.
Living a healthy lifestyle is important to me. Working out, meditating, spending time outside, eating healthy foods, getting acupuncture and regular massages are all part of my own healthcare practices, not just what I advocate for clients. I want to take care of the world and I believe that begins with taking care of myself.
The story of how I became a massage therapist began in 2013, which was my 20th year of teaching middle school. The stresses of being a classroom teacher caused me to develop debilitating anxiety which forced me to leave my career. After much research, work with a life coach and career counselor, the seed of my next profession was planted in a dream I had. I dreamt that Jefferson County paid me to come in and massage the faces and hands of the “challenging” students. Though I never thought that would happen, it did provide me with direction. I made a few phone calls and visits, which is how I ended up at Advanced Massage Therapeutics with Charlie Watson. After a few massage classes, I knew that I was on the right path because for the first time I felt naturally good at what I was doing.
After I passed the state exam in December of 2014, my husband and I decided to remodel our basement to have a separate studio space so I could work from a place that I love, my home and neighborhood. I opened my business in March of 2015 and here I am now….in a wellness career, doing the kind of work that I love and getting paid for it!
