My work stands out due to my ability to detail an area of discomfort with the use of deep tissue techniques especially trigger point applicatons. This comes from experience. From the feet to the head I know each muscle and tendon and know exactly how to work them to relieve tightness, achyness and pain.
Having been a massage therapist for 25 years I find the work easy and the clients enjoyable.

BA Psychology Univ. of South Florida 1982
Certified in Therapeutic Swedish Massage, Neruromuscular Therapy and Clinical Sports Massage from Acadamy of Somatic Healing Arts in 1995.
Certified in Clinical and Medical Hypnotherapy from the Atlanta Center for Hypnosis Training in 2017
My rate is $110 per one hour massage session. Clients are usually in the clinic for 1.5 hours so they have time to check in with me and time to check out.
I was drawn to the healing arts in the late 1980’s through my own work of healing and self discovery. With a background in psychology studies (BA) from the Univ of South Florida I moved from the business world to begin my bodywork practice in 1994 after gaining certifications from The Academy of Somatic Healing Arts in Atlanta.
Through workshops I learned the techniques of hypnotherapy in 2004 and began incorporating them as a compliment to the relaxation response one finds in bodywork.
In 2017 I studied at the Atlanta Center for Hypnosis Training gaining certifications in both Clinical and Medical Hypnosis.
My client base is quite varied from young moms needing a break to de-stress all the way to seniors with joint pain. I work with clients who are pregnant, clients with back and hip pain, the office worker who has tight achy neck and shoulders, athletes and otheres in training, people with knee and foot pain, wheelchair bound people (my clininc is accessable), sciatica, plantar faciatis, migraines and tension headaches as well as clients who are stressed/achey from work, relationships, traveling or even just gardening.
I worked with an 87 year old mom of one of my clients. It was her first massage. She wanted to come back the next day!
As alway determine if the therapist's modalities fits your needs.
I prefer a phone conversation initially with my clients to determine their needs, althought those who are referred to me from other clients usually don't request that and simply book in with the consult done on first appointment.
How much experience do you have?
What training have you had? Have therapist explain types of training if you don't know what is it.
How do you take payment?
