My practice specialty is in Orthopedic Massage therapy, joint manipulation, and Orthopedic assessment. I graduated the top of my class in Orthopedic massage, pathology, and physiology.

I perform a refreshing massage therapy treatment which uses a blend of remedial exercise, tissue stretching, and specialized muscle realignment techniques (in a non traumatic way) to help realign muscles, reduce compressions or pain, and to reduce tension in your ligaments, muscles, tendons, and joints. I’m able to offer you care unlike any other and to the highest of health standards.

Orthopedic massage practitioners find the origins of pain and misalignment in the physical connections between muscles, soft tissues, tendons, bones, and fascia. Try Massage therapy with real results!

Be pain free!

 massage is used to treat pain and soft-tissue, musculoskeletal injuries, emphasizing not only assessment and rehabilitation but on prevention and maintenance as well.

Imagine all you could do if you were pain free!

My studies of alignment therapy, myofasical restrictions, & pain relief  therapies; allow me to communicate with your musculoskeletal system. The treatments will help refresh your bodily tissues, find the source of build up, and treat your symptoms thru massage therapy to promote muscular wellness and an overall pain free lifestyle. I have an innate knowledge of the science behind Massage therapy and pain. My treatments will help you improve your joint mobility, range of motion, & overall blood circulation, while reducing pain & muscular tension in affected areas.
