Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to combine my experience and education into a service that tailors to our clients specific areas of concern, maximizing the benefits of the individual massage. Massage is more than a “pleasant” experience.  Our goal is to promote wellness in our clients.  Our philosophy is to give a healing massage that is both relaxing at the time and provides health benefits for lengths of time post massage.

Our practice focuses on the restorative abilities of massage, the wellness of the circulatory and musculatory systems, and the psychological benefits especially as pertaining to children with special needs. For more information on the benefits of massage click here.
