A variety of therapeutic techniques are available to meet each client’s individual needs, including: Pregnancy, Sports, Relaxation / Stress Relief Massage, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, European Hot Stone Therapy and Reiki. Comfort Massage (light techniques for fragile client’s) is also available.

TBW head shots 011I had been a Registered Nurse for 20 years when I decided to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. The vast majority of my nursing experience was in critical care settings, but also included home care and some hospice work. I loved the challenges and the technology of critical care while I was in that arena. (I was in my twenty’s and thirty’s, by the way and I don’t think my picture is giving away any secrets!) Moving back to this area created a chance for new beginnings.

I am a firm believer in “everything in it’s own time.” The time for being a critical care nurse seemed to have passed. When I saw that a massage therapy school would soon be opening in this area, I knew it was time to follow my dream of not only becoming a massage therapist, but also owning my own business. Being a business owner can certainly have its own challenges.  I welcome those challenges. Being a massage therapist is my passion now.

I love the idea of people leaving my office feeling so much better than when they came in; working individually with client’s and creating a session that addresses their concerns on that day. No drugs, no dressings, no injections (there is, of course, a time and a place for these things). “Everything in it’s own time”, priceless!

I am a 2001 graduate of The Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy. I have been employed in Saratoga at the historic Lincoln Bath House and the Roosevelt Bath and Spa from 2001 to 2012. It is a privilege at this time to be working with my dear friend Claire Hanley at Therapeutic Bodyworks.

Throughout my years as a massage therapist I have learned that everyone can enjoy and can benefit from receiving bodywork. I know first hand that it is incredible to be the recipient of a massage and I find great joy by giving a therapeutic massage knowing my client will walk away with a sense of well-being.

I look forward to helping new clients realize the value of massage and the many opportunities that will be presented to me in Averill Park.
