“My approach to therapy is simple. The method for treatment is always client-centered with a specific focus to get rid of pain, restore function and prevent further injury. My goal is to get you out of the clinic as fast as possible arming you with the tools needed to prevent any reoccurrence of symptoms. I have dedicated my life to this profession and am grateful to do something that I especially love.”

“I have always benefited from massage therapy as a recipient and wanted to make other people feel just as good – so I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy. Being active myself, I know the importance of self care, and massage therapy should be at the top of everyone’s list. Whether it be to reduce pain, increase range of motion, or reduce muscle tension, massage therapy can treat many different conditions while promoting relaxation. I like my clients to leave feeling better than when they came in.”
