"I enjoy working with clients to restore and maintain maximum mobility and function through a combination of deep tissue massage and swedish massage and self-care through yoga practice. Each massage session is tailored to meet the needs of my clients by combining traditional massage therapy techniques with alternative techniques such as massage cupping, thai yoga massage, myofascial massage and hot stone massage. I am excited to offer several additional services to compliment the wellness needs of my amazing clients and look forward to continuing to grow."
