Therapist and Credentials


I believe everyone could use a massage.  Why?  Because we as humans acquire aches and pains from a multitude of mental, physical and spiritual stressors.  Massage Therapy is an excellent non-drug remedy to reduce anxiety, alleviate pain,  improve flexibility, promote sleep, and enhance mental clarity.   I can describe the experience of massage therapy in 3 words:  It's All Good!
