Arrive early to get in a relaxed mindset and to maximize “hands on time” of your appointment. Hydrate post massage, drinking lots of water afterwards is essential for building healthy muscle tissue and removing metabolic wastes. Rebook before you leave as with any healthy habit the best results are usually seen on a cumulative basis, and as part of a long-term wellness routine. It’s difficult to get all the kinks and muscle pain under control with one massage treatment, rebooking is the best way to maintain a comfortable body to live in.
About Me: I was born in Phoenix, I grew up with four siblings; five of us total. There were four girls and one boy. My brother, the youngest, stopped breathing when he was a baby. After being revived the outcome was cerebral palsy. My loving mother decided after many years as a mechanical engineer to change careers and become a massage therapist. This was to help my brother to be more comfortable in his body, as well as helping other people be more comfortable in theirs. As an adult I moved to Colorado for three years, while I was in Colorado I attended the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado – MTIC. I graduated in 2015 with a 900 hour certification. The school taught me many modalities such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Lymphatic Drainage, Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), Thai Massage, Acupressure and Meridian Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Motion Palpation, Kinesiology (posture and movement), sports massage and how to integrate these all into a customized treatment for each client. It was a broad based and very well rounded program. I believe there is a massage therapy plan for every BODY and I look forward to working with you to find the best massage therapy plan for you.
What Massage Means To Me: Seeing firsthand what massage therapy can do made me interested in massage therapy, and learning all about it made me love it. Having to live in an uncomfortable body is not the way to live, change it with massage therapy the effects and outcomes of can be amazing!!
