“I began my career in Massage Therapy in, 2000, when I graduated from the Baltimore School of Massage and earned my National Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. I am fluent in trigger point, Swedish, deep tissue, and myofascial release. Clients appreciate my firm, strong touch, my intuition, and my specific knowledge of anatomy. Also, I prides myself on my ability to tune into my client's tissues and feel the minute changes that occur, enabling me to respond to the body rather than intrude on it. Each of my sessions is individually tailored to meet the client's needs.

It is serious and effective western medicine for people who are tired of living with pain, who need to function better in order to live and work, who want to avoid surgery or are not recovering sufficiently from an injury. One of the fastest and most effective treatments for pain available, it is the medically indicated treatment for headaches, shoulder, neck, back, hip and knee pain, sciatica, TMJD, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia - any pain with a muscular component. If you're in pain, I can help!

“I was inured at work when in my mid twenties. The result was major back spasms and sciatic pain which lasted for twelve years. Two years later I went through the windshield of a car from the back seat. So now I have compression fractures up and down my spine. These are the reasons why I am in practice today. Over the past 28 years I have tried and learned many things to alleviate my symptoms. The methods that worked for me are the ones I use today.
