I decided to pursue a career as a Massage Therapist after getting my very 1st massage. It was one of the best experiences ever. It was so relaxing and my therapist had such a serene demeanor, from that moment on I knew that is what I wanted to do with my life. To heal the world of it's aches and pains, one touch at a time!
I strive to give you the massage I would want to receive while addressing your specific needs.
I had the pleasure of participating in breaking the Guinness Book record for the most massages preformed at one time. We had 167 massage therapist working on Marine Corps Marathoners Sat. Oct.25,2009. It was an awesome experience. There were therapist from as far as Texas and Arizona there.
