Due to the closeness of our work, an additional consent form is required for you to review and sign prior to your appointment. Please view it before your appointment to avoid having to cancel last minute. You may bring in a signed copy or sign one when you arrive.

Please note: Masks are a recommendation under the guidelines for businesses with common areas in which people may not be able to give distance between others. The CDC recommends that masks be worn unless a medical condition prevents you from wearing one, you have trouble breathing, for children under 2, or are assisting the hearing impaired (in which case a sheild is acceptable). Please do what makes you feel the most comfortable.

As always, we thank you for your continued business and support.

Hello and thank you so much for reading our team page! I specialize in deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, and ashiatsu. I also use hot stones or bamboo, aromatherapy, and reflexology integrated into sessions, or can customize for your requests. I have many interests outside of massage including studying professional counseling. I am currently making up internship hours (previously interrupted due to covid closures) so my schedule will be limited to mostly existing clients for now. I will return with more availability for new clients after graduation and truly look forward to welcoming you to my space! For massage therapists: I am a certified Ashiatsu instructor with Deepfeet--the original source in the U.S. for barefoot massage training. I would love to teach you how to use your feet and body weight to offer your clients the most luxurious and relaxing deep tissue massage ever! Learning Ashiatsu was one of the best investments I've ever made to extend my career in massage. You can see my schedule of classes for 2021 at deepfeet.com.
