Massage Therapy at Vitality Acupuncture Savannah

     My calling to massage therapy is rooted in a deep desire to promote natural health and to help people feel more balanced and connected within their own body. Pain management, improved range of motion, and stress reduction are key. With these goal in mind, I enrolled in East West College of Healing arts in 2008. Here I studied anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, pathology, and a wide range of Eastern and Western modalities. I went on to spend the next several years working in a wide range of settings including a chiropractic clinic, high-end spas, as well as providing massage at a birth center.

    I am continually inspired and fascinated by our body’s divine design and interconnectedness. Massage therapy keeps me learning and inspired. I also have a special passion for women’s health, pregnancy, postpartum, and newborn care and creating community and advocacy. My background as a midwifery student and labor doula offers a unique perspective for my clients as I have a lot of experience working with families and understand the ups and downs of new parenthood and how massage therapy can help to support the whole family through this tender time and beyond. I absolutely love prenatal and postpartum massage, as well as treating babies with Craniosacral Therapy and teaching infant massage!

When away from work, I am an avid explorer of the outdoors. I also train for triathlons which not only keeps me motivated and healthy, but also serves as a great tool for working with other athletes in my massage practice! I also love, travel, the arts, and spending time with my human and animal family.
