The Human Experience
Master Massage Therapist
Certified Manual Lymph Drainage Therapist
I have a passion for teaching my clients how to have correct posture and to live a pain free life. I continue to expand my knowledge in the field of Core Bodywork and share this knowledge with others.
I was a Police and Fire Dispatcher for the City of Fayetteville for 7 years. Sitting all day caused back and posture problems like I'd never experienced before. After trying multiple approaches to find relief, massage is what made the difference. I needed to learn everything about it. I needed to share this gift with everyone I could.
