After becoming licensed as a massage and bodywork therapist, I moved to Wilmington, NC to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. In Wilmington I personalized & strengthened my massage technique and opened my first private practice, Port City Massage. I have now opened a new private practice in Aberdeen, NC. My focus is to bring balance to the body through deep tissue & neuromuscular techniques, stretching and cupping (myofascial decompression). My formal education in the science of exercise, fitness, health and wellness provides a strong understanding of anatomy and physiology of the human body. I also value the mind-body connection and softer modalities (stretching, aroma and heat therapies). I holistically blend the East and the West, and aim to create a dynamic and effective massage for my clients. I am a big believer in consistently furthering education & being a lifetime learner.
