Therapeutic Massage was introduced to me at a very young age, which has helped me establish a very unique connection to TOUCH & the human body.
I have been in practice in since November 2010 and have had some of the most amazing experiences of my life either receiving or while providing massage.
I have had successful practices in Vancouver, Hope & have recently relocated BACK to Vernon.
I am passionate about Self Care Education & believe that a human being’s willingness to learn more about themselves every day is the most vital component of preventative health care & day to day – moment to moment well being.
My massage therapy practice focused on Women’s Health Concerns, Reproductive Health Care for all Humans, Breast Care, Pelvic Health Issues & Scar Tissue Support, but I welcome everyone!

Massage Therapy & Touch is the biggest component of my LIFE. It is my most turned to self care practice, as it brings me closer & closer to my heart & soul every time I connect with my body.
>OTHER REASONS I LOVE THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE::
*Massage helps your body heal itself.
*Massage helps you connect to your pain perception in an open, curious fashion.
*Massage is a gateway to self compassion, self inquiry, self awareness & SELF LOVE.
*Massage has helped me learn to breathe, to be present & to BE QUIET.
Introducing Therapeutic Massage into your life as part of your Self Care regime, especially if you pay into an extended health plan, can transform your connection to yourself.
Many people live day to day, for years on end, with chronic, deep muscular pain, headaches, numbness/tingling in their hands & feet, restricted movement patterns from old injuries all because no one ever educated them that direct manual treatment and mobilization of the soft tissues of the body could help them.
We have been taught to adapt to our pain perception by ignoring it or masking it, but we can learn new ways of approaching our body with compassion and care. Some intended surgeries can even be postponed or completely avoided altogether with the application of massage therapy and an active participation in daily self care practices.
I believe it is vital that all human beings are educated about avenues where they can release the natural tension that has built up within their tissue systems.
Registered Massage Therapy & Self Massage are two of those avenues, and I am so grateful to help guide you on this powerful journey into the Self.
Are you in?
I look forward to meeting you!
