Welcome! Born and raised in Texas, I spent several years in Arizona and currently divide my time between Texas and Ohio. I am active and love to travel. I credit becoming a massage therapist to my father, a Dallas Police officer of 40 years. After working all night, I would walk on his back and massage his feet so he could sleep throughout the day. The feeling of delight I had, even as a child, in being able to relieve stress and pain directly through massage has always stayed with me. I genuinely enjoy being a therapist, and love being able to spend my time and energy on the things that are important to me. I thank God for the ability and opportunity to help the people I meet and the people I love.
I have been a practicing bodywork therapist since 2004; first being licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services, later by the National Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, then the Ohio State Medical Board. I have well-rounded experience in the massage industry ranging from high-end spas to physical therapy and clinical settings. I have worked contracted and independently providing corporate and personal chair massage, as well as individual full-length sessions in my office or client's homes.
The ability to help my clients stems from understanding their verbal concerns in addition to what the body tells me it needs. Pulling from experience and education, I aim to bring a state of relaxation and equilibrium, assisting the body in its own self-correcting abilities. Bodywork is a great way to obtain and maintain wellness when integrated with a healthy lifestyle. Manual bodywork is a beautiful thing in that bodies are such complex organisms, so variable from being to being, that learning never stops. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via text or email. I am glad to help you determine the technique to best achieve your personal goals.
