New Services Coming Soon!

Being able to assist people in feeling empowered in their bodies is REALLY important to me. But since this pesky pandemic has shut down my massage practice, I've had to put my creative thinking cap on and come up with a new way to offer my services.    I'm really excited to be launching (very soon) two new services.   1.

Don't Feed The Monsters - Keeping Your Cool in Stressful Times
