After years of trying to figure out what I want to do with my life, I realized that I have always been drawn to helping others and decided that it was time to get up and move. I wanted to do something with my hands, something that everyone can benefit from. These realizations and years of friends and family telling me what “good massage hands” I have led me to seriously consider massage therapy. I now devote as much time as I can to helping others relax and take control of their health and wellness through compassionate and therapeutic massage. By creating a safe place for decreasing stress and reconnecting with your body, you can begin to heal both physical and emotional pain. The healing process is a two-way road and I love giving a massage almost (if not more) than the person receiving it.
I received my massage therapy certification in April 2012 from The Soma Institute, where I was trained in:
Swedish massage techniques
trigger point therapy
I am also certified in pre & post natal pregnancy massage therapy
Continuing education courses I have taken include: Prenatal Massage Certification, Reiki Level I, Intro to Chakras, Infant Massage and Myofascial Release
The Bank of America, Chicago Marathon: Volunteer, October 2013 & 2011 - Medical tent post-event evaluation and treatment of athletic participants
In my free time I like to garden, cook, do yoga, craft and spend time with my loving family and friends.
Tea is currently on maternity leave. That's right I am having twin girls! Hope to back to massage in the fall of 2015. If you have any questions or would like a referral please email me. Thanks!
