I have successfully completed over 1000 hours of clinical and classroom training at the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy located in Albany, NY.

I am licensed by the New York State Department of Education and keep my massage therapy skills and knowledge current through a variety of continuing professional education programs.
Professional Certification in Pregnancy Massage through MotherMassage® with Elaine Stillerman, Certification in Caring for Clients with Cancer with Tracy Walton, Certification in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with Margery Chessare, Hot Stone Massage, Therapeutic Reflexology, Swedish Massage, Reiki I and Reiki II with Dawn Judkins.

What to Expect
Upon arriving for your first appointment, I will ask you to fill out a confidential client information sheet, including medical history and general information. To determine the best treatment techniques, I will discuss your massage goals, including identifying problem areas, easing muscle soreness from physical exercise, and alleviating muscle tension from activities of daily life. In the treatment room, you can undress to your comfort level in private and you will be covered with fresh linens on a heated table. For your comfort, only the area being treated will be uncovered. You should feel comfortable in giving feedback throughout the massage experience.

What is Massage

Massage therapy is a process of manual manipulation of the body’s muscular and soft tissue structure through a variety of techniques ranging from relaxation to clinical and therapeutic applications. The overall benefits of massage therapy are increased range of motion, joint and muscular flexibility, stress reduction, improved circulation, improved immune system function, reduced anxiety and an overall feeling of well-being.

Cancellation Policy
Our time together is important. Unless there is an emergency, we request that you cancel your appointment 8 hours in advance or pay the missed appointment fee in full. Please keep in mind that the therapist will be there only for you. Also, by giving full notice, another needy client can be scheduled in your place. If you don't show up without calling for two incidents, then we have the right not to schedule future appointments.
