Licensed Massage Therapists

I grew up locally in East Cobb.  After graduating from George Walton Comprehensive High School, I attended Lincoln Tech in Atlanta to study Massage Therapy in 2009.

In 2016,  I married my wonderful husband, David. Together, we have seven beautiful children.

I enjoy working in the medical and fitness industry.  I have worked with doctors and trainers to provide the best possible care for my clients.  I am well practiced in orthopedic deep tissue massage, neuromuscular massage, prenatal, and myofascial release.  Whether you’re suffering from a medical issue, car accident, sports injury, or simply need some rest and relaxation, you are in experienced hands with me!  I cant wait to meet you and start your journey for a healthier life!

I’ve been a massage therapist since 2010 starting out in Orlando, Florida.

As a previous professional dancer I know what its like to need to take care of the body as well as how to do it. Since moving to GA most of my clients have been stunt performers in the film industry.

I specialize in intuitive massage, listening to the body for what it needs and using relaxation, deep tissue and trigger point therapy to get optimal results.

Helping people is my passion and I love that massage therapy fulfills that passion.

I moved to the Atlanta area from Miami in 2019 to continue my journey as a board-certified massage therapist. I specialize in Swedish, Depp Tissue, PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation), Myofascial Release, Triffer Point Therapy, Sports Massage, Prenatal, and Manual Lymphatic Drainage. My Passion for massage developed when I saw how valuable it was to our bodies physically and mentally. That passion drove me to pursue my career within this field. My massage is customized to cater to the beneficial needs of clients to ensure that my therapeutic session improves the quality on ones wellbeing.
