My inspiratioto pursue a career in massage therapy came while working as a registered nurse and caring for those who suffered neurological and cognitive impairments, such as stroke, spinal cord and traumatic brain injury. The profound healing benefits from both manual and physical therapy, coupled with my passion to make an immediate difference in the lives of others, solidified my decision to choose this path. 

Our treatment approach begins with a thorough assessment and leads into the correction of any obvious muscular imbalances. By incorporating skilled manual techniques along with passive stretching, we aim to restore balance, calm your nervous system and boost your immune system. Because our intention is to make a difference in how you feel, think and live, our hope is that after just one session with us it will become more clear to you exactly why MassageMatters.   

 

Each MassageMatters therapist shares a common vision of wellness through client education and manual therapy and we strive to make the difference you are seeking. Our expertise in bodywork enhances our ability to therapeutically touch your life by realigning and re-educating both you and your body.
