Teresa-level 3 therapist

Teresa has been a professional massage therapist for over  15 years. She has taken numerous continuing education classes in order to expand her skills and better serve her clients. Teresa has a passion for helping people dealing with pain as well as those looking to commit to their health and well-being by making massage a regular part of their lives. Teresa actively supports various professional massage therapist groups as well as maintaining credentials with the American Massage Therapy Association.

She was inspired to become a therapist after experiencing the positive effects bodywork can have on not just the physical body but the emotional as well. After experiencing personal loss and sustaining a shoulder injury, she sought out massage as a means to cope with these issues. Teresa credits the power of massage in bringing her mind and body back into balance.

Teresa specializes in Ashiatsu massage and has taken workshops with DeepFeet, Southwest Ashiatsu and Barefoot Masters. She also teaches Warm Bamboo massage to licensed massage therapists through Barefoot Masters.

On her path to personal wellness, she began a daily practice of qigong and yoga. Those two disciplines keep her strong and grounded so that she is better able to be of service to her clients. She also teaches yoga and will be a certified Yomassage instructor in May 2019.

During her down time she enjoys spending time with her husband Paul along with her 2 pittbulls and 3 cats.
