Therapeutic Bodywork has mistakenly been associated solely with pain and sports. But don’t forget, relaxation is therapeutic too! I have learned that a clear understanding of what a client needs, as well as attentively listening to the body tissues with my hands, allows me to deliver the appropriate technique with the right amount of pressure. Skillfully applied massage and various modalities can alleviate muscle soreness, increase range of motion, and lessen migraines, TMJD, and fibromyalgia pain. I want to help chronic pain sufferers of all kinds. Relief is just a phone call away. More…

Healing from Surgery? Swollen? Need Manual Lymphatic Drainage for lymphedema?
Watch this video introduction BEFORE calling to schedule.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) – Vodder Method
Gentle stretching of the skin is the action which energizes and opens lymphatic vessels. The lymph is comprised of water, protein, long chain fatty acids, and cellular debris. Stagnant or dehydrated (due to the use of water pills, for example) is a recipe for a lymphatic system which cannot effectively rid the body of toxins or modulate how much lymph is in an area. This collection of lymph is often referred to as ‘swelling,’ ‘inflammation,’ or ‘water.’ Yes, some of the weight a person carries may very well be water weight…and has the potential for being lost during MLD treatment. Strengthen your health so you can better handle crisis. Don’t wait until you have an issue to act. Being proactive saves time and money. More…
