LMT - Licensed Massage Therapist

Vanessa believes that massage therapy is a powerful and essential asset that contributes to a person’s overall wellbeing for the mind, body, and spirit. She understands that every person is unique, and comes to the table with experiences that often manifest as restrictions in the physical body. Through listening to the body and thoughtful communication, Vanessa has a warm and collaborative approach that helps her clients to reach their specific goals in a very efficient manner. Her therapeutic approach is thorough, soothing, and effective. Clients find her work to be truly transformative. 

Vanessa’s extensive experience working in medical offices and resort spas has given her the tools to offer a unique experience to every person she welcomes in her massage room. She brings a vast array of expertise to best serve her clients, whether it be deep tissue, cupping, reflexology, pre-natal, swe-thai,  medical massage, Ayruvedic Massage, or more.  

Ayruveda is central to Vanessa’s approach in life, as it teaches us that optimal health is achieved when we support the body as a whole entity;  subtle shifts in areas that are out of balance can promote profound changes throughout multiple systems of the body, having a significantly positive impact on the quality of our movements, digestion, thought patterns, sleep, breath, and more. We invite you to experience one of the best massages you will ever have.
