Massage Therapist License # 15054
My background in massage focuses in neuromuscular therapy, sports massage, and deep tissue. My passion lies in helping you find the real problem causing your pain, loss of range of motion, or injuries. I like to make sure that you can get the work you need without crossing the line of intense bodywork into painful bodywork. My massage has been called “gentle therapeutic” by many clients. The speed and pressure I use is different for every client, based on what works for each individual person. I started my journey into massage as a child. My mom always had achy hands, and would ask me to “rub her bones.” I began learning at UNC- Charlotte majoring in kinesiology, then I went to the Center for Neurosomatic Studies in Florida to pursue massage as a career. This school focused on analyzing posture to figure out where the body is imbalanced. From there, I took that knowledge and experience and went to Southeastern Institute in Charlotte in 2014, and became licensed after graduating in 2015. I’ve worked in various places, from a five-star spa in California to a chiropractic office to working with the NFL Panthers.
My favorite quote to live by: “Once you truly understand something, it cannot hurt you.” I used this in all parts of life, but especially in the importance of us understanding our bodies. What I live for is the light in a client’s eyes when they truly start to understand their body and realize that they don’t HAVE to be in pain for the rest of their life. To know that I helped with that puts a fire in my heart and makes me jump up and down. That, is why I do what I do.
