I’m a dedicated Christian practitioner of bodywork with various modalities and have been involved in this practice since 1992. I love empowering patients to understand their bodies and discover the gentle power of the healing arts. As a Massage and Bodywork Therapist, I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between western medicine and the “alternatives,” while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal.
I realized many years ago that God had blessed me with a gift to help people through the power of touch. He has aided me for many years, and to HIM I give great Glory!
Massage & Bodywork Services
Offering a variety of services or modalities modalities to align your life force and keep your body in balance.
The basic massage utilized in every session is SWEDISH MASSAGE. It incorporates long fluid strokes; some deeper kneading that enables the muscle fascia to release as lymph, blood, and oxygen begin to flow through the muscle fibers. The natural flow of energy will be restored and homeostasis (balance) is regained.
Deep Tissue Massage
This modality will be used to address deeper connective tissue -- this is where muscle adhesion's are found and what chronic muscle tensions arise from.
NMT is a very highly effective treatment to rid body of pain. The therapist has an advance knowledge of anatomy and can focus in on particular muscle groups to treat the dysfunction. During this "Static Pressure" work, the soft tissue is manipulated therefore achieving a balance within the Central Nervous System.
Hot Stone Massage
This treatment uses very warm basalt stones, rich in iron, that retain heat for a prolonged use. As the stones are place on tight muscles or used to glide over the tense muscle, they aid in deeper relaxation for the client, while softening the tissue. The therapist is able to work deeper into the muscle tissue fibers.
Cold stones are sometimes used for sinus area.
The Hands and Feet have thousands of nerve endings, mirrors our body systems and functions. Through applied pressure to these points on the hand or foot, it can affect those body systems, therefore ease tensions, reduce pain, improve circulation and also benefit mental health.
Myoskeletal Alignment Technique
A methodical treatment plan incorporating deep tissue pressure that aims to create muscular balance and optimal movement in the body. The therapist looks for the most prevalent strain patterns and works the deepest connective tissue layer. The client also must assume a passive role in their own recovery as they learn training exercises and reinforce these new patterns into their daily life.
Trigger Point Therapy is a healing technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow and helps activate the natural healing processes in each patient's body as well as to restore their physical and emotional well-being. As a certified [Holistic] Therapist, I help patients reduce their stress and anxiety, among other ailments.

Barefoot Floor Thai Ashiatsu
Massage on a FLOOR Thai mat!!! The therapist uses her hands and feet to apply deep relaxing strokes to the entire body. Ashiatsu is compression massage that feels exquisite and yummy. It is great for those who have stressful lives (so this includes EVERYONE). Ashiatsu will put you in a zone that will last for hours after the treatment. This is a blend of Traditional Thai with Ashiatsu. The therapist does NOT walk on the body.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, improving overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It can in in the formation of new connective tissue and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
FAR Infrared Heat Therapy
Infrared therapy is a light-based method to treat pain and inflammation in various parts of the body. Unlike ultraviolet light which can damage the skin, infrared light enhances cell regeneration. Infrared light is delivered to the site of injury or inflammation at certain wavelengths, promoting cell repair.
