I am a provider and an advocate of alternative therapies 1st, then medicine.  Through personal experience, I have learned that massage therapy improves my clients physical, mental, and emotional state, and has no negative side effects. This is the main reason why I've chosen this profession.  

I have worked at Austin Springs Spa and Skin Deep Medical Spa, as well as, Kingsport and Jonesborough Senior Centers.


Taking care of yourself is essential.  A consistent massage therapy routine, along with eating healthy and exercising, assists in achieving the highest quality of life, longevity, and happiness.  I enjoy helping you.

My focus is to help you maintain your good health and well-being.
 
By charging reasonable rates I am able to accommodate you financially, making your goals a reality.
