Since becoming a massage therapist back in 2003, my focus and greatest strength as a therapist has been deep tissue, therapeutic and treatment work. I have run my own massage business, worked in the chiropractic setting, as well as contracted out of several massage practices over the years. I feel massage therapy and chiropractic care are key components to wellness.
My goal with each treatment is to decrease pain, tension, breakdown scar tissue, release lactic acid (better known as knots), lengthen shortened muscles and leave my client feeling that each area of concern has been addressed.
To accomplish my treatment goals I use different levels of a deep tissue techniques as well as different tools when needed, such as cupping, hot stones and bamboo. Each person is different, therefore treatment is tailored to the clients likes and dislikes in terms of pressure and style.
I grew up on a horse farm in Sammamish. My husband is also a local and we have decided to raise our kids in a community where we love and call home. Our 2 kids are very active in football, lacrosse, cheerleading, soccer and softball.
Both my husband and I played sports in college, so from my own experience as an athlete and raising our own little athletes, I understand the need to recover quickly from injuries, pain and discomfort. When you have an active lifestyle, the last thing you want is having your body hold you back.
I look forward to working with you and helping you get back on your feet and feeling good again!

I have always had a fascination with kinesiology, the study of movement. The study of movement is in every aspect of life. With the understanding of how the body moves and operates, we can learn how to make positive changes. With all this knowledge you have a greater understanding about injuries and injury prevention. Gymnastics has been a part of my life since the age of 6. I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years and have been coaching gymnastics for the past 12 years. I find that the most important part of coaching is providing guidance. I can use the same philosophy with my massage practice, to provide guidance and suggestions on body mechanics to help posture and relieve pain. There are numerous benefits for everyone to receive massage therapy. I am looking forward to being able to help patients with their needs.
