Your massage will be tailored to your individual needs, and designed to ease stress, relieve muscle tension, and generally accelerate the body's natural healing processes through increasing blood circulation, utilizing traditional Swedish massage techniques in combination with other modalities, which may include active/passive muscle energy, hot/cold therapy, deep tissue, stretching, and more.

Few things tell staff that you appreciate and care about their wellbeing more than bringing massage to them. I offer in-office chair massages, designed specifically to relieve muscle tension where they likely feels it most - neck/shoulders, arms/hands, and lower back. Clients remain clothed during these sessions, which generally last no more than 20 minutes each. Rates start at $70 an hour, 3 hour minimum, plus a $25 materials fee.
I understand you lead a busy life, and sometimes you need a massage NOW. For clients who have a more demanding or unpredictable schedule, I offer special "concierge" massage services where I will bring the table to you (or you can come to the studio) when your need falls outside of our normal operating hours, or when you can't get an appointment when you need it most. Package consists of 6, 1-hour massages (or a total of 360 minutes) of dedicated massage time to be used as needed (no less than 30 minutes at a time). $590
THAI MASSAGE OPTIONS
• 75 Minute Slice of Heaven Massage: Blends Swedish and Thai massage (which incorporates acupressure and stretching to open up joints, fascia, and connective tissue) techniques into one fabulously relaxing massage, all performed on a table. Thai techniques are used on the lower extremities, Swedish techniques are used on the neck and shoulders, and a combination of the two are used on the back and glutes. You'll not find another massage experience like it anywhere! $90
• 90 or 120 Minute Full Body Thai Mat Massage: Uses ancient stretching, select pressure touch points, and other massage techniques to open up your joints, muscles, and connective tissue, providing some of the deepest relaxation imaginable. During this session, you remain fully clothed (in non-restrictive clothing) and therapy takes place on a padded mat on the floor. Choose the 120 minute session for more intense therapy, which may include energy work, additional stretching, and use of Tok Sen (ancient Thai massage tools). 90 Minutes: $125. 120 Minutes $155.
ABOUT THE THERAPIST
Thank you for visiting my website! After decades in the for-profit and not-for-profit business sectors, I decided it was time to go into business for myself, in a career that would be rewarding and help others in a more tangible way. I think I have found my calling. I graduated in June 2018 from the highly-regarded Louisville School of Massage, and passed my licensing exam in the same month. I opened my practice in July 2018.
Through my massage therapy studies, I have come to realize just how fine-tuned the body is - like a high-end sports car - and if one thing goes out of alignment, or starts to work improperly, then the whole system suffers. There are many benefits of massage, and many modalities at my disposal to help you maintain your optimum performance.
Clients have used the words "precise," "therapeutic," and "almost surgical" to describe my massage technique. There are a few principles that guide my work, but one I often share with new clients in particular is this: When a muscle encounters an unknown stimulus, it's first reaction is to recoil (think of how your foot and leg recoil at you stepping on a sharp object, like a tack); however, as the brain has time to process what is happening, it sends a signal to the muscle that it's okay and it can relax (hence, you're able to lower your foot/leg when you realize the tack didn't penetrate the skin). That signaling between your muscle and the brain takes about 20 seconds to come full circle. Similarly, when a massage therapist grabs or tries to stretch your muscle, its tendency is to recoil or tighten until it gets a chemical signal from the brain that it's not going to be harmed. With this philosophy in mind, my process is slower, more measured, and often viewed by clients as more therapeutic as I give the brain time to process what I'm doing and send those chemical signals to get the muscles to relax!
