I am a certified massage therapist in the Chantilly area. I graduated from the renowned Denver School of Massage Therapy in Westminster, CO with over 815 program hours, including an intense cadaver lab. Originally from Falls Church, VA, I have recently found my way back to Northern Virginia after being in Colorado. I now live in South Riding, VA. I come from a Buddhist upbringing, and the natural and herbal (Eastern medicine) is familiar to me, I try to practice it in my daily life. I am also a strong believer in attaching mind to body when helping an individual. Now that I've moved back to VA because of my parents, the people who've taught me how to live holistically, I've set up my practice around that.
My interest in massage therapy began after a car accident 10 years ago. I was able to witness the positive effects of the therapy that I received afterwards. Paired with the physical therapy, massage therapy enabled me to get back to the quality of life before the accident. My specialties include Deep Tissue, Trigger Point massages, and injury rehabilitation.
I specialize in Reflexology, Russian Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Advanced Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point, Movement and Structural, Shiatsu, Cranial Sacral, and Acupressure.
I've had professional experience and success in treating a wide range of injuries such as neck strain, sciatica, and lower back pain. My style is a blend of flowing Swedish and Deep Tissue massage. I enjoy personalizing every massage for each client's needs and time requirements. My main passion is meeting people wherever they are in life and health, be it dealing with difficult life changes or struggling with everyday aches and strains.
