Release what no longer serves your highest level of well being so you may live your fullest, most joyful life! Your ​energetic body has a crucial role to play towards your wellbeing.

All the traumas we carry physically, emotionally and psychologically impact the functionality of our energy systems ​(chakras, aura). This includes physical traumas, toxins, prolonged stress and muscular constrictions. To maintain vibrant ​health, the body needs its energy (chi, prana, life force) to flow freely throughout the body. Disturbances in the energetic ​system over time can contribute to mental, emotional issues and/or physical disease/ailments.


During an Energy Healing Session I will assess the functionality of your 7 main Chakras. You will receive chakra clearing, ​balancing, an aura cleanse, and other intuitive work to encourage a healthy flow of energy, balance, harmony and vitality ​within the body. Wearing loose comfortable clothing to this session is suggested.

my journey to massage and wellness...


I have always been interested in the health and wellness field. I grew up in New Haven Connecticut and have been a resident of the Quiet Corner since 2009. I attended UMASS Amherst and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, and went into office work right away. I began receiving massage as a way to ease my stress and muscle tension from my desk job and workout routines. I felt at home in this environment, and it was my favorite thing to do for myself. I thought, if only this was my job and I could come to an office like this everyday, how happy would I be! In 2005, I followed that dream and graduated from Central Massachusetts School of Massage Therapy. I was still working full time in my office job and working part time as a Massage Therapist. Life happens, and changed my course for a while causing me to leave massage for a number of years. During this time, I continually felt like I was not living my truth. I felt physically that I was going against the grain. After much self care and self reflection, I realized I had already found my true calling and I needed to get back to it! To refresh and strengthen my skills, I enrolled in a Holistic Massage Therapy training with Spa Tech Institute, where I not only had a full Therapeutic Massage program, for a second time, I also trained in Polarity Therapy. I believe the combination of massage and energy work provides a more complete healing experience and benefits the mind, body and spirit.


I discovered the healing power of crystals at a young age. As a kid growing up in a city, I liked to go into metaphysical shops. I don't know if was the look of them, the smell of incense, or what it was that drew my interest originally, but that is where I discovered my affinity for crystals. I started collecting small crystals and bought a book on them.. since google did not exist yet.. and learned the names of each one and what their healing properties were. My collection, and my passion for crystals has grown significantly since then. I am quite an analytical person, so I have taken courses to learn the scientific aspect of crystals and why they have healing properties that work with our energetic body. I use them as part of my own self care and I enjoy using crystals in my healing sessions to help others.



When I see a client, whether new or existing, I make it a point to give my full attention and listen to what my client’s needs are. My intuitive nature assists me in addressing these concerns, and the massage becomes what it needs to be for my client. I believe in massage being a quiet time for relaxation. Even during a deep tissue massage, I have had clients fall asleep on my table. Very often I hear that people have had a prior experience with deep tissue work, or massage in general, and felt it was a painful or uncomfortable experience. During a deep tissue massage with me, I check in with you on pressure to ensure it is not to the point where you are in pain or feeling like you are tensing up from the pressure. It does not have to hurt and it shouldn’t! This is why communication is very important during this work. It takes time to warm up the tissue in order to work deeper with out discomfort, therefore very often this type of massage is limited to specific muscle groups rather than being a typical full body massage.


In 2019 I started my own practice working within a chiropractic office, seeing many clients with therapeutic needs. I moved my practice to Woodstock, CT in December 2022. Most of my massages are a combination of different massage modalities, including relaxation. I am very happy to be able to provide Oncology Massage for not just those actively dealing with cancer treatment, but also for survivors as well.


My goal is to help my clients improve their overall wellness and quality of life through massage and energy work. Being proactive about your health is the best medicine and regular massage can make a difference in your quality of life. When your body hurts, this effects your mood and prevents you from fully enjoying yourself. I encourage you to take that step to better health and happiness by getting regular massage. Just like exercise, you get more results with a consistent practice. A massage once a month can be a life changer.


All the Best to You!
