I am passionate about massage and bodywork because it supports how we feel, physically, mentally and emotionally. When we feel comfortable and relaxed, the quality of our lives are improved, and life can be enjoyed without the interference of pain and stress.
I believe that we each have individual needs and wants when seeking a massage. It is my mission to tailor each session specific to what you want and it is my priority to listen to your feedback. The best massage experience is achieved through the collaboration of the client and the massage therapist!
