It is my practice to make a clinical massage therapy treatment relaxing and restorative. I use General Swedish Massage Therapy and adapt the treatment as needed: deep tissue massage, trigger point release, myofascial release, Manual Lymphatic Drainage/Combined Decongestive Therapy, and Functional Range Release®.
It is my goal during treatment to create a balance between the physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

The goal of General Swedish Massage Therapy is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body.
Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time.
