I have been practicing massage therapy professionally since completion of my studies at Lincoln Technical Institute in 2008. I've always seemed to be intuitive healer, and I have been interested in the healing arts since I was young.
While at Lincoln Technical Institute, I studied all of the core classes necessary to become a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) in the state of Connecticut and receive national certification through the NCBTMB. I've studied many massage modalities including; Swedish, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Trigger Point, Aromatherapy, Pregnancy, and Sports .
I enjoy blending techniques from these modalities to adapt to the unique needs of each person I work with. My style is to start broad and gentle, to relax the mind and body, while assessing the needs of my client, then to focus on specific muscles and areas of chronic tension. I like to receive feedback and I encourage open honest communication during my massages.That being said I am also content with silence, and am able to use my intuition and cues from the body to decide on the course of the massage.
I take pride in my work and satisfaction in being able to help people feel better; mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for reading and I hope we meet soon!
