"Healing occurs in many special and individual ways.
It usually takes two, the person on the table and the person through whom the healing energy is channeled. I am fortunate in that I have been able to establish trust with my clients, and am educated and in tune enough to listen with both ears before touching anyone.
must be empathetic to each individual's situation and to know one's
own limitations. Equally important, I know when to send a client
to a medical or alternative practitioner. ...Providing a comfortable
and trusting atmosphere enables the client to feel trusting enough
to relax, breathe and help in their own healing. The client does
the hardest work, trusting me, breathing out their aches and pains,
wanting to be healthier than when we started."

About My Work...
Having been in the Massage Business since about 1992, I’ve come across so many different situations and personalities in need of treatment. It has been and still is quite a fun journey from movie stars, to rock stars to the creators and builders of Columbus Circle, just like the locals, they all have their aches and pains… not all in the same places tho…
Every “body” is like a canvas, or a key board, where a beautiful picture is created or a symphony…. the strokes are conducted and brushed according to the written notes with a little of the conductors input to make it great.
I must listen to the signs and symptoms differently than the usual person. I listen with my fingertips, the palms of my hands, while I watch and try to coordinate the breaths for better relaxation. With kids it is really fun. Since the verbal communication is entirely different with infants and toddlers, my inflection in my voice is paramount, eye contact as well as a relaxed hand is extremely important.
My business does not just involve those that want to have a relaxing massage before a night of dancing and dining..I have established a trusted and professional business that encompasses the sick, aged, young, and older clients with a bit of baby massage instruction on the side. It has been and is the most enjoyable experience of my working life..
With the many benefits of massage to choose from.. Pick one and book a massage to continue your good health today!
