In my adolescence I was a reckless weightlifter with chronic aches and pains. In massage school I skateboarded everywhere and fell countless times. In the past two years I have gone through the medical rigmarole after experiencing a major car accident. I always loved physical touch and naturally fell into the massage industry because of it. I also completed my reiki master teacher training in massage school but it’s not something I share with people unless they ask for it. I may not have weathered the storm of aging, or have a fully developed brain, or had the privileges' that come from a long career working with all those interesting clients, but I have never stopped learning and growing my skills. Thanks to the vast amount of information available today I am able to easily spot misinformation and false claims, and believe you will find my approach to your massage refreshing and empowering. Massage can only do so much, and I want to be an advocate and support for you to take the reins back from your body and handle the stresses of life. No over the top fluff, just simple compassionate therapeutic touch that leads to a more blissful life. I am currently serving the south Plano, north Dallas, and Richardson areas in-studio massage and with mobile massage appointments. Book a session today!

Certificate in Strength and Conditioning in Rehabilitation (University of Saskatchewan)
I took Ph.D. in physical therapy Scotty Butcher's course on strength and condition in rehabilitation where I learned basic principles to programming and coaching strength and condition for populations rehabilitating from surgery and injuries(January 2023). Although this course doesn't instantly give me the same scope of practice as a physical therapist or make me an expert on strength and conditioning in a rehab context, it does allow me to make general suggestions for people that can make a huge difference.
NASM(National Academy of Sports Medicine) Certified Personal trainer
I completed the NASM-CPT course which gives me the base knowledge needed in order to offer personal training to the public(August 2023)
Did you know that even people without pain can have degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, or other tissue damage. It's true, tissue damage is not equal to proportionate pain and it is not a life sentence of chronic pain. I try my best to approach my clients and their problems with compassion. I believe my clients deserve to enjoy their sessions AND leave with relief from whatever it is they're struggling with. Instead of treating your problems like a knot that can be untied, I want to give you space to recharge and reflect on how you've been treating your body and support you in creating and reinforcing habits that prevent injuries and chronic pain.
