I have been practicing massage for twelve years and it is the most rewarding job I have ever experienced. I began my journey after sustaining a shoulder injury during my time practicing Capoeira. Doctors told me I had to have surgery yet through massage, physical therapy and chiropractic care I thankfully never had to experience surgery. I wanted to be able to show others how life changing massage can be. Over the years I’ve had the honor of working on wonderful people who’ve allowed me to create a treatment plan to alleviate their pain. People usually come to me when they are in pain which means their initial problem had time to develop. I always recommend detailing the entire body which can be done in multiple back to back appointments to get the body back to homeostasis. Once the body is back in balance you can move to maintenance massage to keep the pain away. I use a combination of multiple modalities including Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Russian, Injury and Sports massage. I understand the need for relaxation as well and try to create the perfect balance.
My other passion in massage is prenatal. As a mother of two and my experience with many expecting mothers I understand their needs. It can be frustrating as an expectant mother to find a massage therapist that is comfortable working with you especially when massage is a must with your changing body. I've had the luxury of working on well over 100 pregnant women and about a dozen of them through their entire pregnancy. Prenatal massage decreases stress, relieves pain and can help when it's time for labor and delivery. It feels wonderful to provide the proper treatment needed to all these expectant mothers!
