I trained at The Center For Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy and The Finger Lakes School of Massage.
I believe therapeutic massage has nearly endless benefits. What most other therapists don't integrate into therapeutic massage is relaxation, and that's where I differ. Without relaxing the body and stimulating the clients parasympathetic nervous system, it will be harder to relieve tension and work out issues causing pain. I always include a relaxing component to my massages as well as therapeutic work so I can make the biggest difference possible with each visit.
It has been my dream to be a massage therapist since I was 10 years old. The more I learned about it, the more I loved it. Each client presents me with the chance to help make a change in someone's life. And when that change is helping them manage pain or even just letting go of stress, I get a sense of pride and achievement that I cannot get anywhere else. Because I have had muscular issues and pain since childhood, I understand the relief my clients feel and I will do anything I can to help them the way I have been helped by massage!
