BS, LMT, Reiki Master Teacher
My fascination with all things human became when I found Anthropology, the study of humankind, as an undergraduate student at VCU. I have always been passionate about humans, community, and personal wellness. After graduating from VCU, I moved to China as a US Peace Corps Volunteer. It was there that I became a frequent receiver of massage, and started tuning into my body as a holistic system--the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies being interdependent.
I graduated from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in the fall of 2016. I am happy to be able to say “I love my job.” I enjoy guiding others to listen to their bodies and discover the many ways our bodies communicate with us. I am certified in Prenatal Massage, Medical Massage, and I am a Reiki Master Teacher.
My intention during our time together is to facilitate a space for healing to happen. The role I play is of the helper, aiding the body in healing itself. My approach is a slow, relaxing, effective manipulation of the soft tissue and fascial bindings, using a variety of methods. I work with what your body is telling me, allowing release to occur naturally. It often takes time to build up tension or dysfunction in the muscular system. It also takes time to release it. Together, we will work through a plan that works for your body and your schedule.
