Vision:  To assist in stress and pain relief through touch to encourage self-healing, restoration and regeneration.

Mission:   To foster connection through touch, awareness, and example of individual capacity for self healing.


I was drawn to massage therapy because, as a cancer survivor and through multiple family health events, I know first hand the power of touch and the body’s amazing ability to heal itself.  I studied abroad in an intensive, accelerated program in a small mountain town on the Pacific Ocean coast in Costa Rica.  Honestly if my people and animals would have come with me there I may never have come back.  But since southern Illinois/Indiana are home…I am here to share my amazing journey, skills, and knowledge.  I believe strongly in the benefits of massage therapy and encourage you to get a regular treatment…if not from me then somewhere!
