I am a Certified Massage Therapist in Indiana. I am also Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, which is currently the highest attainable credential in the profession. I am a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association and Secretary of the Board of Directors of the AMTA Indiana Chapter. I have taken over 190 hours of continuing educational courses since graduating in 2010 (that's an average of about 46 hours per year) including, most recently Headaches and TMJ Dysfunction, Abdominal Detox (Chi Nei Tsang), Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy, Massage Cupping (Negative Pressure Massage), Positional Release for Joints (Ortho-Bionomy), Thermal Connective Tissue Release, Cold Stone Therapy for Migraine Headache Relief, Kinesio Taping, Ethics, Touch for Health, Thai Massage and Lymphatic Drainage.
Whether you’re seeking massage for relaxation, rehabilitation or rejuvenation, you deserve to be treated with compassion and respect by a practitioner who is both knowledgeable and skilled.
My grandfather was a very talented massage therapist and chiropractor. "Grandfather Doc" taught my father massage, and he and my father taught me. I grew up massaging friends and family, and have shared my massage skills throughout my adult life. Through massage, I have been able to change hundreds of lives for the better.
