I knew early on that massage was going to be a big part of my life! At about five years old my mother grabbed a reflexology book and my feet. From then on, I got some sort of massage from her almost every night. As I got older she started to include massages after sporting events, and I would notice the difference in recovery every time. In high school, I started working on swim teammates as well baseball teammates. I gained a great understanding of the body before I ever actually learned about the body.
Prior to becoming licensed in 2012, I turned wrenches as a mechanic first on my own and then while in the military. I served just under five years with one 16 month deployment to Afghanistan and grew so much as a person. After leaving the service, I became an Licensed Massage Therapist and know that I’m doing exactly what I was meant to do. My massage modalities range from stress management relaxation to functional movement and recovery. My focus through massage is education. The more the client knows and understands about their bodies the better the healing process will occur. All massages are contoured to your specific needs and wants.
