About Me

Thank you for visiting! I have been a massage therapist for over 22 years.  I enjoy offering a relaxing and therapeutic experience for each of my clients.  All sessions are customized and I offer a variety of techniques suited to your specific needs.  I will bring my table and supplies to your location in the St. Louis and metro east area.  Contact me with details about your request and I will get back to you as soon as I possible.

I have recently started exploring another career and have limited availability to every other weekend and Monday or Tuesdays.  (I spend time with my family Wednesday-Friday evenings and every other weekend and may be slower to return messages those days).  Thank you for reading!
