Hi, I am a board certified, licensed massage therapist. I graduated from the Healing Arts Center in 2006. For over 15 years I worked in the corporate world before moving to massage full time in February of 2019. Seeing how the daily stresses of an office job can take a toll on a person's body has inspired me to specialize in relieving those tired shoulders, neck, and back. I combine many modalities in each session. Client favorites include hot stones, ashiatsu barefoot massage, cupping therapy, trigger point, and doTERRA aromatherapy. If you're in search of a deep tissue massage, I definitely recommend you booking an ashiatsu barefoot session with me. Client favorites include hot stones and Myofascial Release. Cupping Therapy and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage available March 2019.
I’m available at the O'Fallon location by appointment: O’Fallon: Sunday-Thursday (9am-9pm)
