I am a small town girl living in the city now. I have always wanted to help people and I am very passionate about massage and helping to relieve pain and stress.
A good massage improves us physically, as well as mentally, and my goal is to make sure the massage is uniquely geared towards you. It is my priority to make sure you receive the individual treatment you need, whether you seek relief from an injury, stress, or are incorporating massage into your health and fitness goals.
I have been a Certified/Licensed Massage Therapist for over 7 years, but I have been doing massages since I was about 7 years old. (My dad would probably say I owe this all to him). I have a Cherokee Indian background, which may be why I love healing people from pain. I also am passionate about animals and have rescued three special needs dogs.
I, myself, know what it is like to be in pain, as I have had sciatic pain, carpal tunnel and other areas of pain. I take pride in knowing I can use my gift to help people. I can also tell if someone is out of alignment, as I have worked with many chiropractors and have learned many techniques in therapeutic massage and have the most experience with trigger point therapy. I am well known around Indianapolis for improving the health and well being of my patients/clients. I have worked on many people with tendinitis, carpal tunnel, low back pain/spasms, sciatic pain, chronic headaches and tingling/numbness in the hands or feet, just to name a few. I not only provide pain relief, but can increase your range of motion.
In addition to massage, I also have an extensive background in healthcare and was a Hospital Corpsman/Field Medic in the US NAVY and have trained with the marines, as well as, a history of working with brain injury patients.
I look forward to meeting & helping each and every one of you.
