The Therapeutic Massage works to release the aches and pains of the weekend warrior. I like to incorporate trigger point therapy, stretching along withpressure the client is comfortable with in order to give them the relaxing massage they deserve.

Deep Tissue or Therapeutic Massage
Hot Stone Massage
Pregnancy Massage -60 min
side line massage
Body Treatments Last 60 or 90 min
With all of my CEU courses, to strengthen my Massage Therapy background. I believe listening to my clients after years of doing massage has made my massage better. Listening to the likes , the don't likes. What they think has worked. Making the client comfortable, i feel is why my clients have come back to me over the years.
I also understand i will have lots to learn, with this new position. I may have a basic knowledge of soap notes and insurance but i have not used the information in my everyday practice.
