"Physical touch is an expression of emotion, and you can always tell if a massage therapist cares." For over a decade, this has been my motto and personal reminder that serves as the foundation and inspiration for every massage session. Growing up as the youngest of eight, for me contact with others was simply unavoidable, and I believe wholeheartedly in the therapeutic and healing benefits of physical touch. From back-rubs to hugs, piling in the back seat, and piggyback rides, touch was huge part of my family's interaction. Now an adult (and part of a larger and ever-growing family) I have taken great care to develop a massage experience that is catered perfectly to you and draws on this fundamental approach to well being.
As a native Austinite, I began my career in massage therapy at The Texas Healing Arts Institute in 2006 initially as a means to fund my undergraduate degree in Political Science. Upon graduating from Texas State University (go Bobcats!) in 2010 and working at a local massage therapy company in town, I realized my calling lay more with my work of enhancing the wellbeing of others through my pursuit of massage therapy work. Since 2011, I have engaged in building a business that focuses on helping clients create positive changes in their bodies. Whether the focus is recovery, maintenance, or simply stress reduction, I want to engage with and aid my clients through the means of massage therapy for an overall increased wellness.
It's safe to assume that most would consider me to be a natural extrovert (who is of course always willing to share) and when I'm not taking care of my wonderful clients I make time for big family-style dinners, working out early in the morning, gardening, and my first true love ... the Dallas Cowboys.
