I have had over 12 years of experience in massage therapy, physical therapy and kinesiology. In 2002, I graduated with honors from Illinois State University and then attended Blue Heron Academy to become a certified medical massage therapist. I also have my license in the state of Michigan for massage therapy.
The true individualized massage therapy treatment is my specialty. My primary goal is to make people who are in pain feel better and lead happier and healthier lives. It takes a certain kind of person to be a great massage therapist - essential traits include a caring nature, skill, technique and warm hands, and I possess all of them.
I believe everyone deserves a professional, individualized and customized massage. Whether in your home, hotel or office I have made relaxation convenient by coming to you.
Customer service is my motto!
A few factors led me to massage therapy. I understand what it's like to live with pain and I also know how it feels to have relief from it, whether it is a few days or even just an hour.
My sister and I were living together at the time when she was going to Massage By Sarah. I saw firsthand Sarah's passion and enlightenment (and I got free massages!). In the back of my mind that was something I knew I wanted in my life. Nothing pleases me more than to help other human beings - it's the best gratification I could possibly ask for.
Therapeutic work is what I strive for. I enjoy working closely with people who suffer from chronic pain, athletes and the elderly, because I know I can help them.
I have 4 years of experience and graduated from Blue Heron Academy in 2010.
My philosophy on massage is "Everyone needs a massage! It doesn't matter who you are or what you do."
I feel that I bring a great deal of passion for the field of sports and medical massage and my treatments show it. You'll often hear me say "look how much looser it is!" with excitement, and I am genuinely excited because I know I've helped someone feel better!
I have experience working with athletes from all different sports and training levels and have dealt with a wide variety of health conditions and muscular issues. I am a 2003 graduate of Everest Institute in Kalamazoo, and have been practicing massage on and off since then.
I love to help people relax from all the stress of work, parenthood and daily life. My mantra is "be a better you by taking some time for you!"
I have been practicing massage therapy for 8 years now, after graduating from Everest Institute of Grand Rapids. My main focus is relaxation using the Swedish massage technique.
