Touch with loving intent is essential for every person to thrive. That means all bodies are deserving of healing touch - no matter their size, shape, texture, age, or gender expression.

 

This belief has been rooted in my massage practice since I was first licensed in 2014. When I entered massage school with Miller-Motte Technical Institute of Cary, NC in 2013, massage was more of a means to an end. Bodywork seemed like a good trade to bolster me financially while I worked towards a Bachelor's degree. Little did I know this trade would become my career, and it would bolster me through more than just financial means, but emotional and spiritual hardships as well.

I have always been interested in the healing properties of touch.  Throughout my life I have always enjoyed working out knots and helping relive muscle tension.

 

My friends and family frequently encouraged me to look in to massage therapy as a career.

Researching this field I realized that the benefits of massage include relieving depression, anxiety and chronic pain. 

 

There are so many people in the world who battle these conditions everyday.  Massage can make such a difference.

After receiving Thai Yoga Massage for the first time, I knew it was a modality i had to explore deeply. I was in my second year of practicing as a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist and had begun training in energy work with the Healing Touch Program. Thai massage was what I had been looking for; deep effective work that honored the bodies intricate energetic systems.

​​

I am grateful for the Thai culture and the teachers who continue to inspire me and show me that massage is an ancient nurturing healing practice.

 I thoroughly enjoy being active, spending a large amount of my free time in the woods exploring, or hiking with my dogs.  Plus I enjoy working out.  Having done crossfit, power lifting, body building, and am currently training for Strongman/ highland games.

  

I am also a veteran, having served over 7 years.  Doing a tour in Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom II) back in 2004-05.

The body is the vehicle and we are the driver. I have spent 30 years understanding the inner workings of automobiles.  Transitioning to the study of human anatomy, understanding how the body moves and what creates pain has been an exciting and natural next step in my work.

Massage is amazing at creating more space, more ease, and deeper healing than we can achieve alone because it's a connection between you and your therapist in a safe, nurturing space where you're free to relax and be nurtured as you give your own body permission to do it's healing unencumbered. 

Let's create openings and opportunities for expansion through therapeutic muscle tension release, Maya Abdominal Therapy, or CranioSacral Sessions.

I have had the pleasure of working as a massage therapist in the mountains of Boone, NC since 2010.  I enjoy the beauty of this area and the people who chose to live here.  

 

I love working with all kinds of clients, who are looking for healing on many different levels.  My massage techniques incorporate my love for yoga, deep tissue massage, and my appreciation for the body's capacity to heal. 

 

I love working with low back pain, shoulder pain, headache and migraine sufferers, jaw pain and neck pain.  I also love working with pre and post natal clients.

My passion for massage grew from many places, but most notably my experience as a woman and a mom. I especially love the nurturing aspect of massage, utilizing my background as a DONA trained birth and postpartum Doula to offer my clients the amount of healing care and attention they deserve.

 

My favorite massage to give is a 90 minute massage using essential oils. Each massage is custom to the client receiving the massage & their needs. This amount of time gives the client time to relax & release tension in the mind & body.
