I am an authentic and genuine licensed massage therapist serving the Houston area.  I have many years experience giving Swedish and Sports/ Deep tissue massages.    I incorporate my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Meridians into my practice and use neuro-muscular therapy (NMT) to address chronic muscular holding patterns.   Administering acupressure points to relieve chronic pain and both passive and dynamic stretching to affect the fascia and connective tissues in the body.  I am interested in increasing human potential whether that be through physical fitness, mind- body balance or when you just need to be supported with nurturing touch.  I have an intuitive and holistic approach that is apparent by the first time that I work with you.   I address problems that hinder normal muscular function from conditions such as upper cross syndrome to sciatic pain.   I have been trained to recognize imbalances in posture and foot strike causing an uneven gait.  I also work closely with athletes of all kinds to help keep the muscles strong and supple.   The suffering from headaches and muscle spasms can be alleviated through cranio-sacral therapy and I utilize neck traction to help with the new phenomenon known as “text neck.”    By blending different modalities I am able to integrate many styles of massage to tailor the massage session to what you need. 

My massage style is fluid and inherently nurturing.    I have extensive training in the traditional form of Thai Massage (Nuad Boran) and the ancient healing art of Ayurveda.  I have a very grounded energy that makes my intuitive massages so much more relaxing.    I practice yoga and also enjoy lifting weights to keep myself strong and able bodied to do the demanding work that is bodywork.    I love what I do and it shows.   I have 20 years of hands on experience and knowledge in the field of massage and mindful movement so please contact me with any questions or concerns.   Take charge of your health and recovery by booking a session with me today.

  1. Hi I’m another local Houston massage therapist and I was wondering if I could pick your brain about your manual technique and physiological philosophy.
