I live by the philosophy, “Help the body heal itself.” I have developed a personal style of massage that blends several modalities depending on each person’s needs. Helping a client to simply relax, or working to have them leave our office pain free is one of the greatest joys in my life.

I am a South Carolina native, and have been massaging family and friends since I was four years old. My mother has suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis since an early age, my brother suffers from scoliosis, and my father had large amounts of work related stress as a regional salesman. I had a gift for relieving their pain and suffering through massage, and have been developing skills on others in this area for my entire life. I made an enlightened decision to make professional massage therapy my life path. I am constantly adding and developing new techniques and modalities to my practice, and give every client the best massage possible.

I received my degree in Professional Clinical Massage Therapy from the Southeastern Institute in Charleston, SC.
