Therapeutic Bodyworks LLC was established in 2001. My business model has evolved through the years from a home based business to an office based setting for many years and now back to a home based business. The only difference this time is, it’s in YOUR home! All the benefits of Professional Massage Therapy in the comfort of your own home. No dealing with the weather or traffic any more.  🙂

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,  Reiki and Comfort Massage (light techniques for fragile client’s).

In order to meet the varied needs of the clients I see, continuing education in new modalities is an important and on-going process at Therapeutic Bodyworks LLC.

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!
