About

I have been a licensed massage therapist for 19 years, and am a graduate of The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics. I have developed a highly unusual skill-set that enables me to treat clients “From aches to zzz’s”. Frankly, it is my education and experience in wellness that enables me to work at both ends of the massage spectrum.

At this point in my career, I have refined my work to provide these two types of massage: one addresses pain and movement problems and the other is an outstanding, thoroughly relaxing and balancing Swedish massage.

My client said she simply wants to know: “What’s in it for me?”

For pain relief and improved joint function, I use a combination of deep tissue techniques including trigger points and myofascial release. However, I am most excited about using Neural Reset Therapy. This is a new, very exciting AND very effective modality. The client is fully clothed and is an active participant in the massage. The most common response from a client in an NRT session is: “It just feels easier to move.” Decreased pain and increased function!

For relaxation, my full body Swedish massage is truly unique because it leaves clients feeling both relaxed yet rejuvenated. This sensation of being ‘balanced’ is what makes this treatment so special.

And, I have what is possibly THE most comfortable massage table in town! With extra padding, extra width, a table warmer, and the ability to adjust to your height and mobility issues, my table is really something special to experience.

Please – come in, let’s talk and see what would work best for you!
