After walking along side my mother during her journey with cancer, I knew that I wanted to offer a safe and meaningful way to connect and promote wellness for both the mind and body within my community.  I am grateful to have learned the healing art of oncology massage therapy so I can share the power of touch with those who need it most.

After witnessing the positive effects that therapeutic massage had on my family while going through their cancer treatments, it inspired me to launch an oncology  massage program, both hospital-based and in my private practice. It’s been my privilege to compassionately listen to patients who are faced with the challenges of medical treatments and to develop a customized, integrated plan to relieve their discomfort and stress during ongoing and post-cancer treatments.
