Thank you for taking the time to visit my ever improving website! I am very excited to be in the process of growing my massage therapy business with new adventures in providing aromatherapy products and organic skincare to my clients. I believe in providing holistic health in a safe and nurturing space to connect with spirit, soothe the mind, and relax the body. And constantly learning and growing so that my business can be more efficient and customer friendly, allowing me to give each client their most therapeutic massage ever.

Since 2002, I have been optimizing the quality of lives through massage therapy, aromatherapy, and education. I specialize in therapeutic massage which uses geothermal therapy (use of heated basalt and chilled marine stones), aromatherapy, acupressure, subtle energy work, hydrotherapy and the perfect amount of pressure.

The main objective during a massage session is to promote the healing process by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest response) while decreasing the sympathetic system (flight-or-fight response) from every day stress and tension. Also to use the highest quality of products to protect a person's greatest asset, the skin which is the first line of defense for the immune system.

For new clients, a Client Information Form is filled out to determine the best route of care. And for existing clients, if your medical history changes it is very important to inform your therapist about these health updates. During the massage session, it is very important to me that you feel very relaxed and comfortable with the pressure, temperature, etc. and please communicate any issues with the therapist. This will maximize your health benefits and prevent soreness after the massage.

Massage appointments can be scheduled by appointment at Healing Arts of Ohio in Wapakoneta. Or for members and their guests at the Shawnee Country Club. I am a member of Moon City BNI (Business Network International). If you are interested in finding more information about BNI to grow your business, click here.

Another aspect of my business is offering continuing education to massage therapists and other creative entrepreneurs so that we can have the tools to share our talents and gifts to benefit humanity. I have taught Anatomy and Physiology to massage therapy students at Healing Arts Institute in Perrysburg, Ohio and Institute of Therapeutic Massage in Lima, Ohio. In 2012, I became a Right-Brain Business Plan® Licensed Facilitator and offer workshops for creative entrepreneurs, like me, to help develop their business plan. And this spring I will begin teaching a spa development online course with HAI.
