our massage therapists
“I have been a practicing massage therapist for about 5 years now. I received 1350 hours of education in a wide variety of massage modalities including Lymphatic Drainage, Swedish, Thai, Prenatal, Somatic Movement, and Shiatsu, and I specialize specifically in Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Therapy, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching.
I had the great fortune of studying under Cynthia Ribeiro, former President of the American Massage Therapy Association (2012-2013) and 2017 recipient of the American Massage Association Teacher of the Year Award. The Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy Program that I graduated from under her with above a 4.0 GPA gave me an in-depth insight to very specific anatomy and pathologies that muscles can mimic or contribute to. That, coupled with the title of Health Educator that my school bestowed upon me gives me the means and the passion to give my clients the tools to take a holistic approach to muscular wellness, both in sessions, and at home.”
"I am a Licensed and Board Certified Massage Therapist. I graduated from Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy in Oaks, PA I also have an associates degree in Occupational Therapy."

"I have worked with a broad spectrum of clients presenting with varied muscle pain, discomfort and injury. I am familiar with several pathologies regarding muscle pain by applying appropriate modalities of massage therapy to aid in healing. I have worked in massage clinics and fitness gyms. I have also worked in conjunction with chiropractors and other healthcare practitioners developing careplans to improve clients overall health and well-being. I promote the use of breathing techniques to aid in relaxation. I can assess for posture and proper body mechanics."
