- Resultoriented Massage Therapy
- Divine Spa Treatments
- Lymph Drainage Specialist
A nationally certified Therapist for Massage and Bodywork, and a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, trained in today’s Gold standard for the treatment of Lymphedema,Complete Decongestive Therapy.
All massages are tailored to each client's individual needs and may include deep tissue, trigger point therapy, accupressure, gentle stretching and heat or ice applications.
My sessions will never be painful, because I don't believe in the 'No Pain No Gain' approach. Muscle tissue that has been warmed up properly by using a slowly increasing pressure will tolerate deep tissue and trigger point therapy without too much discomfort.
I offer a special sequence for tension headaches and also cater to the overworked and stressed out clientele who just need an hour of serenity and a gentle, swedish massage. Aromatherapy and hot towels can be incorporated with advanced notice at no additional cost. There is no good argument against a massage. The benefits of massage are endless.
Have you had a face lift, a tummy tuck, lipo suction and the pain and swelling is bad? You need MLD after this type of surgery. MLD can be started as early as two days after surgery. In some cases, such as smart-lipo, your physician may allow earlier treatment. In average between 4 and 10 sessions are needed for best results, though in many cases some relief is noticeable after the first session. With over 140 continuing education hours in Lymphedema Therapy and over 6 years of experience working on post-op clients, I am specializing in manual lymphatic drainage massage.

Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to fill out a client intake form, so that you can be on the table when your appointment time starts. A late arrival may result in a shortened session so that subsequent clients can keep their scheduled appointment time without delay. Full fees are due regardless of late arrival.
Cancellation policy: Please cancel existing appointments at least 24 hours in advance to give other clients the chance to get some much needed treatment. If this policy is violated more than once, prepayment must be made before another appointment can be scheduled and the client will be charged in case of another no show without cancellation according to the policy.
With respect to the therapist a clean body without excessive perfume or aftershave is expected.
I thrive to make your appointment as comfortable as possible and encourage you as a client to immediately voice any kind of discomfort regarding positioning, temperature, pressure, lighting, music etc.
This is your special time and you should be able to enjoy it as if it was a mini vacation.
I understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. In my desire to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:
24 hour advance notice is required when canceling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give me 24 hours advance notice the second time around, you will be charged the full amount of your appointment AND you have to pre-pay for any further appointments.
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show.” They will be charged for their “missed” appointment.
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session. Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other customers, please plan accordingly and be on time.
