About this pro

Most of my clients come to me because they are in some kind of Pain. I have 20 years experience in Clinical Bodyworks, including Injury Massage, Sports Massage, and Structural Bodywork.  I am very good at relaxation massage and include energy work with each Massage.

I have been teaching massage apprentices since 2011, and have graduated three Licensed Massage Therapists.  I also teach energy medicine. I am a Reiki Master and teach Reiki I, II, III and Teacher Training.  

The People.  When I do structural bodywork, I make the client talk so I know he is present while I'm working.  There is nothing worse than going too deep and your client is not there to tell you. Because of this I get to know my clients more than most therapists would.  I love my clients, they are like family to me.

FAQs


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

I use an intake form to help me understand what is going on with my client and if I need more information, I ask questions before the massage. 


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

I have a 1,000 hour, degree in Clinical Massage from Utah College of Massage Therapy.

Have taken a Spa Training Course, Thai Yoga Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Hot Stone Massage, and Structural Integration.  I am a Reiki Master with 17 years of teaching Reiki. And I have been an Energy Medicine Practitioner for most of my life. 

I am an Apprentice Supervisor, which means I train my Apprentices in a 1000 hour program, according to the laws and rules of the State of Utah, to be able to test and become a Licensed Massage Therapist in Utah.   I also teach Energy Medicine.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Most modalities are quoted at $80 per hour, including Structural Integration unless you sign up for a 10 session course of treatment, which is $120 per hour. Because of the length of the sessions with treatment time and exercise protocols.


How did you get started in this business?

Originally I went to Massage School because I wanted to start my own Spa.  I did not realize at the time how much I was going to love the work.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have had a very diverse clientele.  Mostly men and sometimes their wives, who come from all walks of life.  I have worked on professional athletes, dancers, and everyday joes.  I have clients who have been with me for 20 years and clients that I see once in a while.  Right now I am working on a lot of seniors because people like to find a therapist who is close or closer to their own age.


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

Ask questions, and let the therapist know why you are getting your Massage. And always leave a review, even if you don't like your therapists work, it helps the next client who works with that therapist to get a better Massage


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

If you are in pain, sometimes you don't need Deep Tissue. Let your therapist know what you are going through, most of us manage the pain differently.  Trust that they have the knowledge and the training to help. Because of my experience and Advanced Training, I will work differently than someone new to the business.  That does not mean that they are not just as competent at helping with your pain as I am.

Listen, if you don't understand what your therapist is talking about ...ask. You need to know what you are agreeing to.
