Your road to healing begins here
I’m a licensed Massage Therapist with nearly 20 years of experience.
I am dedicated to creating a warm comfortable space where you can receive the care and healing that you need.
With all my years of experience I realize that not every body is the same, I will work with you to create a customized massage session to address your areas of concern. My goal is for you to walk away thinking that was the best massage I ever had!
WHO I AM AND WHAT I DO
I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2002. I am throughly trained in deep tissue, trigger point therapy, fascial (connective tissue) restructuring, cupping, reflexology, and sports massage. I am constantly continuing my education and adding to my scope of practice. I’m dedicated to helping my patients figure out what is causing their pain and discomfort and working with them to achieve relief and improved mobility, in a setting that is relaxing and comfortable. While I do tend to zero in on problem areas and dig deep, I don't want you to feel so uncomfortable to the point you can't breath deep and relax, this is where good communication between you and me comes in.
With my background in working at luxury spas I aim to keep a relaxing spa like atmosphere so even though you are getting therapy you will also feel pampered because you deserve it!
I am currently working independently renting a room in the beautiful Healing House on N. Yakima, in the Stadium district of Tacoma.
A Massage Tailored to Your Needs
Your massage session will be tailored to your specific needs. Cupping, Gua Shau, deep tissue, sports, trigger point and Myofascial release are all applied as needed. I don’t charge extra for these services.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
For existing clients I will take L&I or PIP claims. These are claims if you were injured at work or in a car accident. I currently do not accept health insurance. They are extremely difficult to work with and since I am only one person it is too difficult to keep up with.
DO YOU USE SHEETS FOR DRAPING.
Yes! In Washington State proper draping is required by law. You will always be properly covered during your massage. If there is any inappropriate behavior, or I feel uncomfortable at any time. I will immediately terminate the massage, and alert authorities.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
For your first massage I will greet you at the door, and have some paperwork for you to fill out. Please arrive 10 minutes early. After you have filled out your paperwork we will discuss your expectations and areas of concerns. I will do my best to answer all questions and make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
WHAT DO I WEAR DURING THE MASSAGE?
You will be covered by a sheet and blanket your entire massage. I will undrape the area I am working on and cover it back up when I move to another part of the body. No private areas will ever be exposed. With that in mind for women you do need to remove your bra because it will get in the way of the massage. I do recommend everyone keep on their underpants, especially if doing a lot of stretching and sports massage. To your massage if possible wear comfy clothes that will be easy to get back into when you are all loosened up and relaxed.
DO YOU SPEAK ANOTHER LANGUAGE?
Yes I speak Mandarin Chinese, but am only conversational, not fluent. I will have a very difficult time explaining medical terms, but I can understand if you describe your aches and pains.
