I approach all my treatment massage sessions, with the utmost in professionalism. Every session is tailored to meet the need of each client. I take the time to listen and address your concerns. My primary goal is to provide my client with a great Therapeutic Massage. I am skilled in using many modalities from Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, Body Scrubs, Vibratory Therapy, Cupping, and Aromatherapy.

I provide a clean and safe environment, at my home studio..., with clean sheets, music, oils, and shower facilities. My focus is always to the client's therapeutic comfort, starting with their care and safety. I have been fully vaccinated and have had my 1st Monkey Pox vaccination. I am happy to were a mask, as too, the wearing of gloves, to further insure your safety.

I am not here to judge, but to help open the door to a healing experience. I also work with Transgender, Non-Binary, and sexual abuse survivors.
