I am a New York State Certified and Licensed Massage Therapist in the Rochester area. I received my massage education from the New York Institute of Massage and have received my BS in Biology from Syracuse University.
I practice massage because I have suffered many injuries, as an athlete of many years, and recognize the need for soft tissue work to return to a healthy state. Massage is often necessary to return to full recovery, reduce long-term effects of injury, improve performance, or improve the quality of life. I have been given the gift of massage and I want to share that gift with you.
I have a thirst for knowledge and continually further my massage education. I live a healthy lifestyle and integrate athletic activities and yoga into my life.
~Health is not housed within those four walls of the doctor's office, the therapist's office, the dietitian, or the gym. It is what you continue to do outside those four walls that affect your health and well-being.
