My Story. My Influence.

The power of touch and a healing presence is priceless when illness or death are inevitable. We will all face death and may or may not experience Hospice care, or Cancer. In any case, I will be here to hopefully make that process "softer" and "bearable" for you the patient and your caregivers. I have been at the bedside for both of my grandmother's during their passing away and most recently, my Dad when he was called Home. Each experience was much different, yet extremely powerful and surreal. I was most effected by losing my Dad. Being present for my father's last breath was a gift. He was there when my life began and I was there when his life ended. You will notice his picture is included on most of my literature and website. I keep him alive through sharing those memories and by sharing the gift of touch with my hands.

My presence and gift of touch with massage therapy throughout his illness and death made his time and fight to live more bearable and gave him a much better quality of life and death. I have evolved as a therapist over the years. I am starting this "softer" side of my massage practice in the hopes of sharing the gifts God has given to me through my hands. The gift of Massage Therapy. I cannot heal you, but I can help to give you Quality of Life and help to lighten your journey, whatever that may be, with touch. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

What is Oncology Massage?

Oncology Massage is the adaptation of massage techniques to safely nurture the body of someone affected by cancer or its treatments. Massage can be safe and therapeutic during and after cancer treatment. Even after people are out of treatment, receiving bodywork from an oncology therapist is important due to the potential for late effects of treatment. An oncology massage therapist will adapt massage techniques to safely meet the changing bodywork considerations during and after cancer treatment. Many cancer treatments require long-term massage modifications. Clinical research shows massage can improve some cancer treatment side effects. Benefits can include reduced pain and fatigue, decreased anxiety, less nausea, improved sleep, eased isolation, enhanced body image, and a greater sense of well-being. If you are in or have a history of cancer treatment, or know someone who has, request an oncology massage trained therapist. Visit for more information on massage and cancer. Also, please visit Unite For Her on the web for more information on the wonderful resources they provide to others. I am a provider for both.

What is Palliative/Hospice Massage?

Hospice and palliative care emphasizes quality of life, a comforting presence, and focuses on comfort rather than on a cure. Massage Therapy has shown to decrease anxiety, agitation, joint stiffness, and lessens pain. My patients have a smile on their face with every visit. It promotes inner peace and relaxation. One on one care, undivided attention is what I give to the patient to relieve sore muscles, tissues, and at the same time relaxation for the mind as your loved one accepts their own mortality. Death is inevitable for all of us. Providing massage therapy to others allows me to make the journey more comfortable for the patient and their family.
