I have over 15 years of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist, received my Masters in Transpersonal Psychology in 2009, and became a Certified Coach in 2014.
The body and the mind are interconnected; therefore, any dis-ease in the body can be related to life stressors, negative thoughts, emotional challenges and trauma. This can result in stored energies that causes chronic fatigue, poor posture, sleeping issues, sore muscles, misalignment and more. I specialize in the therapies below, helping my clients love life and feel more vibrant, have better sleep, become more energized, create a healthier outlook on life, reduced stress and the desire to be more in control of their well-being.
By creating and maintaining a regular health maintenance routine, you can change your life from one of pain and frustration to healthy and happy.
Neck pain that’s caused by repetitive strain and injury to the muscles and other tissue structures of the cervical spine.
The average adult head weighs 10-12 pounds, supported by the bony structures, muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the neck.
When you tilt your head forward and look down (on your phone texting or at the computer), the weight of your head places 50-60 pounds of force on the neck.
The result is muscular and ligamentous strain and other structural issues that cause the symptoms associated with tech neck.
“With repetition, that force can strain or injure the facet joints that connect our vertebrae. When that happens, the surrounding muscles naturally tighten up to protect nearby nerves, which leads to inflammation, pain, and knots in your neck – what is often referred to as tech neck,”
Dr. Trivedi, Associate Medical Director of the Spine Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center
Generalized aching discomfort in the lower neck, shoulders, and upper back
Sharp, stabbing pain that’s intense and localized in one spot

Jaw pain due to misalignment of the cervical spine
Tingling pain and numbness in the arms and hands, related to spinal nerve irritation and inflammation
Frozen shoulder, is a condition that limits movement in shoulder joint. The shoulder capsule becomes so thick and tight that it’s hard to move. you use it less. The less you use it, the thicker your shoulder capsule becomes, and the more difficult it is to use.
Symptoms include pain and stiffness that make it difficult or impossible to move. It slowly gets worse over time, shoulder movement is limited, and it can last up to a year or longer.
Sciatica is pain going down the leg from the lower back. This pain may go down the back, outside, or front of the leg. It happens when irritation, inflammation, pinching or compression affect one or more nerves that run down your lower back and into your legs. You may also have tingling or numbness in your back or butt.
40% of people in the U.S. experience some form of sciatica during their lifetime.
Upper Body Tension
(Neck & Shoulders)
Chronic upper body tension is caused by bad habits. Shoulders roll forward, core muscles are weakened, body becomes misaligned and neck & shoulder muscles atrophy.
Sports Massage & Injuries
Improved muscle recovery
It can help prevent injury
Sports massage is an effective addition to a training schedule and treatments will vary according to when and why you seek massage.
Lower Back Pain
The low back, also called the lumbar region, is the area of the back that starts below the ribcage. Almost everyone has low back pain at some point in life. It’s one of the top causes of missed work in the U.S.
Pain that comes on suddenly is “acute.”
Pain that lasts more than 3 months is considered “chronic.”
What can cause your pain?
Sitting for prolonged periods
Heavy bag or purse
Headaches & Migraines
Headaches and migraines can be acute or chronic. They cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Massage, cranial sacral and other therapies help to alleviate the tension in the neck and shoulder resulting in reduction in the symptoms brought on by headaches and migraines.
Maintaining a regular massage routine can be beneficial for reducing and/or stopping chronic headaches and migraines.
Body Alignment & Balance
Spinal misalignment with soft tissue challenges and body imbalance have tell tale signs:
Extreme Exhaustion or Fatigue
Chronic & Severe Headaches
Neck, Hip, & Knee Pain
Tingling, Numbness &/or Loss of Feeling in the Arms and Legs
Trouble Sleeping & Chronic Restless Leg Syndrome
Inability to Maintain Proper Posture
Lower Back Pain
Mindfulness & Meditation
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
Having a higher awareness and being in the present moment, you reduce stress and gain strength in confidence, courage and clarity. This in turn creates a more peaceful and empowering life.
Meditation is a great way to calm the autonomic nervous system, relieving stress and bring awareness to our experience. It physically relaxes both body and mind.
