2081 Munden Point Rd
Graduate of The Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, VA, 2010
My B.A. is in Theater, from Old Dominion University, 1996.
Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, since 2011
Focused on a Body/Mind/Spirit practice of massage, staying true to the Edgar Cayce and Dr. Harold J. Reilly principles of Holistic health.
I worked for three years in Mullica Hill, NJ at Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa. I am now back in Virginia Beach, VA, and will resume a massage practice shortly. I am currently licensed in NJ and VA.
I am Reiki 2 trained.
I do prenatal, oncology, reiki, and swedish massage. I incorporate several modalities into personalization of each massage. I use jin shin do acupressue, cranial sacral, neuromuscular, and myofascial techniques.
I am building my oncology training and approach. I am thankful to have taken the workshop from Lauren Cates, at the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage, and I have been a practicing oncology massage therapist since 2013.
My experience with Oncology massage has ranged from people currently in a treatment process, such as chemotherapy and radiation, to cancer survivors of more than twenty years. I listen to my client, and I explain my approach, so that, together, my clients and I can tailor their massage and reiki time to meet their needs in that moment.
Is it ever comfortable for anyone to discuss their medical history with a stranger? But I promise I listen, and value my client, and will work within my scope of practice to make each oncology patient feel as comfortable as possible.
I have had clients who were diagnosed with cancer, that came to me throughout their treatment journey. I have had referrals from family members who wanted to treat their loved one to a special day. And, I have worked with three clients through to end of life care, and that was a privilege. Every client is unique, and I have learned so much from them. It is my pleasure to work with any client, at any stage of care. I understand how daunting it can be to find a therapist who is not afraid to work with someone in treatment, or who has had lymph nodes removed, or who was just diagnosed and hasn't even started treatment. Your session should be about relaxing you, to ease your apprehensions, even for just 50 or 60 minutes. Let's work together to give you a fantastic session each time.
