“My ideal client is someone who is looking for the best deep tissue massage treatment and/or relief and rehabilitation from injury and chronic pain of the neck, shoulder, or back, including hip pain and sciatica.

“Being in balance is not always simple. Taking refuge from the external demands of our daily lives requires a commitment to ourselves.

Though I address chronic stress and tension, my intention is to also support you in making the changes that will lead to better heath and wholeness.

I hope we can work together to discover the best ways to release your stress and relax your mind.
