With a holistic approach to wellness, a belief that God has provided natural resources to bring our bodies into balance, and training in a variety of modalities, I am ready to help find what best works for your body during your session.
What inspired me to become a wellness professional?
Several years after dealing with my own pain following a car accident, and realizing how important massage was to my healing, I happened upon Austin School of Massage for an internship massage appointment. After the massage appointment they were offering juice and cookies if we sat thru a short Open House presentation. When I listened to their stories and answered many of their questions with a "YES" I decided to go to school and share this love of bodywork and healing with others.
How my clients describe their first visit?
Most of my clients describe their first appointment as effective and leave feeling well worked and hopeful to see change in the issue that brought them to me. I have had SEVERAL clients get emotional when they realized that their pain issue may even be able to be resolved and many that have seen that come to fruition.
What I say to someone who has never tried massage?
Two things....Massage is personal and you really need someone you connect to in order to feel comfortable communicating your needs. Communication is VERY important. I want you to be willing to be challenged but NEVER harmed.
Secondly, it may have taken you a LONG while to get to the physical state where you are today, and thus it may take a while to get you where you want to go, but as long as you are open to the journey I will do everything in my power to help you get there.
