Our Approach

§  Parents and the elderly

§  Pregnant women

§  People suffering from long term illness

About the Treatment

We’ll begin by requesting a brief medical history. This information is kept confidential and used to identify areas where you currently feel pain, tension or sensitivity. The treatment takes place in a quiet and comfortable atmosphere. During the massage you will be covered with a sheet for both comfort and privacy. Each treatment will be designed to release your individual tension areas applying relaxation, deep tissue and sports massage techniques as necessary. 

About the Practice

We approach massage therapy as a health care practice that complements your overall health and wellness lifestyle. Our goal is to assist you in reaching physical, emotional, and/or spiritual healing. We draw upon our education and experience to design the best therapeutic massage treatment for you and apply the appropriate massage techniques in a safe, caring and confidential environment. See what our massage clients are saying...

Prior to becoming a massage therapist I worked in the healthcare industry as a Medical Technologist and also as an Elder Care Provider.  I enjoy volunteering at the Arlington Council on Aging as a Medical Escort. My most recent personal accomplishment was completing a walk for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I can honestly say that I have massage therapy to credit for my ability to complete the 3-day, 50 mile walk pain-free!
