My  —  

Approach

 

I discovered massage after a close friend was injured 
in an auto accident and witnessed firsthand how massage contributed to her recovery. While at The Bancroft School of Massage I made healthy changes to my life by losing weight and becoming an athlete. These changes helped me decide to work with athletes and their injuries.

 

My personal experience with sports and the desire to understand how the body works to maximize athletic performance helps me stand out form other sports and deep tissue therapists. I have had experience in Triathlons, marathons and over 10yrs as a Crossfit athlete. I am currently passionate about bodybuilding, golf and yoga. 

 

I am a member of The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and am licensed by the State of Massachusetts as well as Level Two certified in Thai and has been certified for over 15years in Pregnancy massage. Additional coursework has included Orthopedic Massage, Muscle Release Technique, Cranial Sacral Techniques, Cupping, K-Taping, and Myofascial Release. I have current practical experience working with chronic low back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel, plantar fascitis, headaches, repetitive use injuries, knee pain, frozen shoulder and many other ailments.

 

As a true believer in the benefits of massage, I am happy to be "living my dream and doing what I am most passionate about."

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.
"

- Lao Tzu
