Our body is the only place we have to live, so why not take care of it?

I’ve been working with people since 2013 to help them decrease stress, pain and discomfort through massage therapy. It has truly become my life’s passion to create healing environments for others where they can focus on feeling their best. I believe that effective therapeutic massage doesn’t have to be painful, and can include feeling cared for and relaxed. My treatment room is a safe space for anyone looking to feel better regardless of what they are dealing with.

How I Work

The body is a 3D structure, so why do most therapists only treat the front and back of the body? My work includes treating areas that are often neglected in typical massage treatments, such as the rib cage, pelvis, and abdomen. Assessing the bony landmarks of the skeleton allows me to see where there are deep lines of muscular pull and how those are contributing to the presenting issue, as opposed to always treating the same muscle over and over again and getting limited results.

Special Focus in Reproductive Care

In 2014 I became a doula and began working with families from all walks of life to help them on their journey towards becoming parents. This helped me to see some of the challenges that people are faced with while growing a baby and a family. As a result pregnancy and postnatal massage became a huge focus of my work, and I’m proud to say I’ve treated hundreds of women through their pregnancy and postpartum. Pregnancy pain and discomfort can benefit greatly from regular massage therapy.

When you make the decision to get a pregnancy massage, you want to know that you are in the hands of someone who is experienced. Not only have I worked with a wide range of pregnancy conditions, I’ve also attended births as a doula so I understand the issues that can arise during labor, birth, and postpartum.

When you walk into my office I want you to feel comfortable where you’re at. Together we can create a plan for your massage to help support to feel better in your body.

I get that pregnancy, fertility, and the reproductive system can bring up some heavy stuff. I won’t be afraid to work with you, or hear your story if you feel like sharing. If it’s not medically relevant I won’t pry if you don’t feel like sharing either. I’ll do everything I can to work with you to ensure that your massage treatment is safe, enjoyable, and effective.
