About this pro

I offer high-quality professional mobile massage in NE and SE DC. My goal is to help you feel better in your body through promoting embodied self-awareness. Feeling what relaxation, vitality, and ease feel like for you is the basis for making healthy decisions throughout your daily life.

I graduated from Potomac Massage Training Institute, the premier massage training school in D.C., in 2020 and am very excited to bring massage to you in your home. In a typical session, I will bring together Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques to relieve tension and stress in your body. My work focuses on helping my clients feel better in their body and give them the experience, understanding, and tools they need to develop and hone real-time body knowledge.

Our ability to take action to feel better and healthier is enhanced when we are in tune with our present bodily experience. We can prevent stress from overwhelming us. We feel our back tightening up and know how to loosen it. We can better articulate to doctors how we are responding to medication or recovering from an operation. We can know if the fatigue we feel is from sleeping too much or not enough.

If that sounds like a lot for a single massage, don't worry. Your "job" is to relax and be curious about your experience during and after the session. I look forward to seeing you for your first session, and hopefully many more to come.

I enjoy meeting and connecting with so many people. I love bringing relaxation, healing, and ease into the world. We need so much more of it!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

After booking, you'll receive the initial health history intake by email. I ask that you complete this before I arrive for our first session to ensure we can make the most of our time. As well, it helps me assess whether there are any contraindications to massage or if I may not be the best fit for your needs.

Once I arrive, we'll take up to 30 minutes for an initial physical assessment, follow-up questions to your health history, and any questions you have. This all helps me understand your goals and craft a session best suited to you!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was trained at Potomac Massage Training Institute and am licensed in Washington, D.C. I also have nearly 15 years of personal experience with mindfulness meditation and 10 years guiding others in the practice.


How did you get started in this business?

Pursuing a career in health and healing is a long-held aspiration and I was finally able to pursue it shortly after moving to Washington, D.C. almost 3 years ago. I have found such benefit in my own life from body-based therapies and meditation practice that I would like to do what I can to share this with others.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Please check for credentials. If they do not ask for a health history or initial intake, don't work with them. It indicates a recklessness with the health of their clients that you don't want any part of...


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

What are your short-term, medium-term, and long-term health goals as related to massage? Has the particular issue you are seeking massage for (stress, pain, tension, etc.) been going on for some time? Is there something that makes it better or worse? 

I also think it's important to ask yourself if you're looking for a one-time massage or if you're looking to find a massage therapist for the long-term. That could definitely guide your decision process.
