Verified by HealthProfs.com
Massage Therapist, LMT, HTCP
“I believe in helping my clients achieve total body health - physically, emotionally and spiritually - through Therapeutic Massage, Reflexology and/or Healing Touch (an energy-based approach to healing). Hands-on treatment is important because touch is a powerful way to let others know they are cared for. People who sometimes feel "off-center" or "out of sorts" will often benefit from a Healing Touch session restoring harmony and balance in the body's energy system. Other benefits include pain relief, emotional release, and spiritual growth. Therapeutic massage can help those with poor circulation, muscular and joint pain, stress and headaches.
