I graduated from the Salter School in 2010. Since my very first day of being in this field, I have been dedicated to the well being of my clients. I understand that no two sessions are exactly alike, and everyone has their own massage preferences. My massage styles range from a stress reducing Swedish massage to a more therapeutic deep tissue massage for those who are seeking pain relief. Since I tailor each massage session to my client’s unique needs, I am more than happy incorporating both Swedish and deep tissue into the treatment. My goal is to ensure that you are always getting an amazing massage because you deserve it!
I began my career in 1993 with a group of rehabilitation doctors in California that were eager to teach me all they knew. I learned to work with injuries, and specialized in sports and deep tissue massage. In 2001 I moved to Massachusetts and I transitioned into the spa field to learn spa treatments. and fine tune my relaxation massage techniques. Now, I mix relaxation and therapeutic in a manner that still helps clients with their injuries but allows them to relax. I have a wide range of styles and you might find that I mix a few during your session.
After many years in Tewksbury, I am happy to be back and to be a part of the Oasis Day Spa team.
I graduated from the Cortiva Institute in Boston, MA. There I learned neuromuscular techniques, sports massage, trigger point, myofascial, and swedish massage. After graduating I continued to get my certifications in Reiki 1 and Level 1 Thai massage. My specialty is deep tissue massage to release chronic pain, tension patterns, and past injury compensations. I like to incorporate all my learned skills to best help my clients facilitate the healing process. Every client has specific needs whether it be to simply relax or to eliminate pain. Together we can create a plan to reach your goal.
I’ve been a massage therapist for 10 years. As a clinical massage therapist I provide bodywork focused on pain relief, rehabilitation and recovery from injury or illness for patients. I specialize in deep tissue, Swedish, sports massage and oncology massage.
I am a graduate of Mueller College of Holistic Studies in San Diego CA. and the Salter School in Tewksbury MA. With over ten years of practice, massage therapy has allowed me the incredible chance to work in a myriad of settings and with a widely diverse group of clients. Through this time, I have had the chance to work with premiere triathletes, elite members of the United States Navy, palliative care clients, as well as clients dealing with chronic muscular tension and pain.
All these experiences have deeply shaped the therapist I have become. I have developed a compassionate and therapeutic base, while focusing on injury prevention and recovery. I enjoy working with clients to educate and resolve patterns of chronic tension. Using a variety of methods including deep tissue, fascial release procedures, and joint mobility techniques, I’m able to facilitate and encourage the greatest gains during your session. My focus begins with you and through my ability to listen, assess, and communicate clearly with you, I am able to adjust to your individual needs for the best possible results.
“I graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Therapeutic Massage in 2004 and I’ve worked as a massage therapist since then. I continued my education with the 1200 hour master esthetics program from Catherine Hinds, including the spa program. I ended up teaching the spa program there for a few years and went on to become an RN and continued my bodywork courses with John Barnes specializing in his unique form of myofascial release also know as MFR. I am considered an advanced therapist with training in women’s health courses. I am also certified in Reiki and subtle energy. My massage style uses many of the modalities I have been trained in, with each massage customized to your needs. Whether it is relaxation or specific-issue focused, my goal is to have you leave feeling better each time you come in.”
“My career in the massage therapy field started back in 2005 and I’ve had the opportunity to learn a wide variety of injury management techniques along the way. Some of my specialties are Deep Tissue, Swedish, Hot Stone and Pre-Natal massage. Massage is truly my passion, there is nothing else I would rather be doing. I believe in the health and welfare of all my clients.”
