THE YOGA CENTER
* * * * *
A licensed massage therapist since 1985, I have had a private practice in massage therapy in Tuscaloosa since 1997. I specialize in orthopedic and sports massage, and I also have extensive training and experience in myofascial therapy and massage therapy for pain relief and relaxation, and prenatal massage.
I am a Reiki Master Teacher. Reiki sessions are available indepedent of or as part of a massage therapy session. I incorporate these principles of energywork into all bodywork sessions.
Before pursuing training in massage therapy and bodywork, I earned a Masters Degree in Community Psychology. In 2003, I became a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500-hour level through Yoga Alliance, and have been a yoga instructor since that time.

"Our biography becomes our biology."
Our bodies absorb and reflect back to us what we engage in throughout our daily lives and the things that happen to us along the way. Stress and trauma—whether physical or emotional, as well as repetitive patterns of movement, create imbalances in our bodies. Compassionate therapeutic touch is an age-old approach to soothing and correcting these imbalances. Informed bodywork is an effective tool for reducing pain and inflammation, and facilitating pain-free movement and rest.
The therapist-client relationship is a partnership. The information you provide before each session, along with your feedback during the massage, help me to provide bodywork that addresses your needs. My work with you is tailored to you. I draw from many years of training in massage and bodywork methods that address a variety of imbalances and sources of pain. My years of hands-on experience with individuals give me a wide perspective on health and healing through touch. The privilege of being trusted to work directly with people in their bodies is an honor that I respect deeply.
