-I work with those who prioritize themselves and their self-care. Those who see the value in it and are committed to their wellness. I would say the majority of my clients are those that want to continue living their active lifestyles, yet aches and pains begin to get in the way. They seek Therapeutic Massage as a part of their lifestyle and for overall well-being.  I'm not the person who is going to give you bodywork and just send you on your way without some homework. As an Certified Aromatherapist, not only do I use aromatics and other botanicals within the treatments, but I might send you home with a few self care suggestions. Because I truly believe that self-care is not limited to your massage sessions, it is what you do between those visits. 💚 


We specialize in Barefoot Bodywork including Traditional Thai Massage. Most treatments are done on the floor in a super comfortable Thai Massage mat. FEET ARE AMAZING TOOLS! The use of the feet for massage is an ancient practice, most notably in parts of Asia and the Pacific.👣
  • Traditional Thai Massage (Nuad Bo-Rarn, Northern style) Nuad is usually translated into English as "massage." Bo-rarn is translated as "ancient". So, Nuad Bo-Rarn means "ancient massage", or "ancient healing way".
     Thai Massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching and gentle pressure along energy lines. These movements help to adjust the skeletal structure, increase flexibility, relieve muscular and joint tension, stimulate internal organs, and balance the body's energy system. The effect is uniquely relaxing as well as energizing. Receiving a Thai massage is a bit like stretching without putting forth any effort while also getting acupressure treatments! 1 hour is a great intro to Thai Massage, but the best treatments are 1.5 hours+ as we take our time to allow the body to release tension. 👣
  • Ashi-Thai Fusion- The East meets the West with this harmonious fusion incorporating gentle rocking, joint mobilization and stretching to improve range of motion, circulation and wellness. Deep Tissue without Discomfort: This approach can also incorporate barefoot bodywork.. Ashiatsu, is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. The added aromatic oils we incorporate facilitate a relaxation approach that fuses very well with Thai techniques, resulting in a refreshed relaxed and rejuvenated feeling.👣
  • Gua Sha-  I am a certified Gua Sha practitioner. It is the practice of using a tool to scrape the skin to release tension by promoting the movement of blood and Qi. Sometimes I combine with Cupping when appropriate. Read more about this ancient treatment here.
  • Traditional Thai Foot Massage- Revive your tired feet and legs & experience full body relaxation with reflexology. Thai Foot Massage is a treatment of the lower legs and feet that involves physically stretching and massaging to open Sen (energy).Thai Foot Massage is great for tired feet, improving circulation and lymph movement in the feet and lower legs, and improving. 👣
