I have been a licensed massage therapist in the state of Massachusetts for 19 years. In 1999 I completed a six hundred hour program at an accredited massage therapy school. Once in school, I knew that prenatal massage would be my specialty. As a mother myself, I would have been delighted to have had a trained prenatal massage therapist by my side during my pregnancy.

I have worked with over 1200 prenatal clients from conception to delivery. In order to perform prenatal massage it is imperative that the therapist has also studied acupressure. The pressure points on the body that correlate with specific organs must be understood, as these points are stimulated during the induction technique. If stimulated prior to a full term pregnancy this could cause an early labor.

I completed additional training in: Injury work, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, La Stone Hot Stone Massage, Lypossage, Reiki and Birth Doula certification and Hospice Volunteer certification.

My practice encompasses work with pre and post surgical patients, in my office, hospitals and private homes. I also see clients who have had joint injuries, strokes, cancer, as well as children with Cerebral Palsy, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, sensory and cognitive disorders, ADD, ADHD, anxiety and asthma.
