Combining Eastern and Western Modalities
Our massage therapist has a unique approach that integrates training in several Eastern and Western Modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point acupressure massage, myofascial and connective tissue release, TMJ, craniosacral, Thai foot reflexology, and Thai yoga massage.
By combining these practices, we can better address physical and energetic issues, encourage the body toward its own natural healing abilities, and open up the potential for deep release of all kinds.
What to Expect
During your session, our licensed massage therapist uses an intuitive approach to create the ideal environment for the body to release and let go. Each session is as unique as the patient and incorporates personal stories, pain levels, and bodywork goals.

For each patient, she strives to guide their body toward balance and relaxation with the mantra: “I am here to help release the pain, quiet the mind, and bring awareness.”
