I Graduated from Blue Heron Academy of Healing Arts and Sciences in December of 2006. I received over 600 hours of training in Medical Massage. I am certified with the American Medical Massage Association. I obtain 12 continuing education credits per year.
During my Training, I learned how a healthy diet and active lifestyle can help prevent certain ailments and diseases within the body. With a passion for health and alternative medicine as well as building relationships with my clients. I hope to use my training to help rehabilitate my clients from pain and diseases.

Our practice is ‘evidence-based’, employing gentle spinal manipulation and traction if appropriate. Our motto of ‘quality…not quantity care’ means we do not do long-term treatment plans. Care is based on short, medically necessary care designed to get patients recovered and discharged from active care as soon as possible. Each visit is given plenty of time for evaluation, history and care. No assembly-line type of care in our office.
Active duty military AND their dependents are provided with free treatment in our office. We coordinate care with orthopedic, neurological and other medical physicians. We have X-ray facilities on site and referral for MRI or CT scans if needed. We proudly offer Massage therapy on site by a licensed massage therapist.
