live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.
- Rumi

I'm a southern girl with a northern heart who found love, life, and professional fulfillment in Buffalo, NY. I am a proud massage and lymphatic therapist, educator, obsessive learner, cancer survivor, and part-time world wanderer. I love what I do and the people I work with. I believe that we can all benefit from human touch and connection and hope to teach the world that massage therapy is available to all regardless of what they are experiencing at any given point in their journey through life and beyond.

People seek massage for many reasons. Regardless of your current state of health, massage therapy is available to you. If you wonder if I am the right fit for you learn more about my services or contact me for a consultation.

a few things to note about...

My practice

AT THIS TIME I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS FOR ELECTIVE COSMETIC SURGERY RECOVERY. If you are seeking lymphatic drainage following any cosmetic procedure (unrelated to a cancer diagnosis) such as BBL, tummy tuck, lipo-360, etc, I recommend reaching out to Great Lakes Therapeutic Massage or Orthosport Physical Therapy.

IN MY PRACTICE DEEP TISSUE IS NOT THE SAME AS DEEP/HEAVY PRESSURE.  "Deep tissue", as I was trained, focuses on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body and requires a specific focal point such as a muscle or muscle grouping. Pressure does not have to be intense nor painful in order to be effective. I do not believe in "no pain, no gain" and will never advise you to "breathe through the pain". While I'm capable of delivering very heavy pressure it is not my preferred type of work. If you are seeking sports massage or a more intense therapeutic session I may not be the best fit for you.

I CURRENTLY WORK WITH WOMEN ONLY. However, if you are gender non-conforming or outside the gender binary and seeking a safe space to receive therapeutic massage please contact me so we can discuss some options for you to receive the work you need.
