I am a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, with advanced training in prenatal and postpartum massage therapy.  As a graduate of SWIHA (Southwest Institute for the Healing Arts), I have had a broad range of training from energy work to Reflexology, but love working with mamas.

I exclusively work on women throughout their pregnancy.  As a mother, I can personally attest to the benefits of massage and know exactly what areas of the body need some TLC.

About Me

My Philosophy

I believe that carrying a child is one of the most special times in a woman's life.  It is also an emotional roller coaster filled with ups and downs, growing pains, weight gain and stress.  Taking time out to decompress, relax and allow your body to work its magic without any mental strain is incredibly important, not only to mom but also to the developing child.  As such, I firmly believe that incorporating massage therapy throughout ones pregnancy is vital to a healthy pregnancy.  It also delivers results beyond physical relaxation, but spiritually, mentally and emotionally as well.
