Would you like to enjoy increased flexibility? Do you have minor aches and pains that you'd like to see disappear? Is being and looking healthy important to you? How about reducing the stress level in your life; that sounds good too?
Wouldn't it be great if you could accomplish this all at the same time, while feeling supremely pampered?
That's the great versatility of massage. During massage an important cycle is set into motion that can last for days after your massage. With the first strokes of your massage, circulation is enhanced, increasing the blood flow to the tissues. These new fluids flush and replace metabolic wastes trapped in the tissues. This leads to increased flexibility of the muscles, which promotes movement and health. In turn, more movement means increased blood flow to the tissues....where the cycle starts over again. These steps start an upward spiral toward wellness and well being.
This valuable spiral alleviates the build up of stress. While the accumulative effects of stress have been proven to lead to disease and illness, the good news is that massage also has accumulative effects that counteract the negative influence of physical and mental stress.
Plus, as preventative health care, massage is hard to beat. What else can you do for your health that leaves you feeling so refreshed, rejuvenated, and relaxed?

Date / Time
Born across the state line in Missouri, I moved to Pittsburg in 1983. I spent several years working at Miller's Professional Imaging before deciding in 1993 to devote my life to helping people feel better.
My massage training at White River School of Massage Therapy included anatomy & physiology and several different modes of massage. These included Swedish style, acupressure, Reiki and Craniosacral therapies. After graduating, I added prenatal and facial massage to my skills.
Learning is my first love; I love to research new ways of dealing with pain and tension. An important aspect of my practice is being able to offer my clients suggestions to use between massage visits to help reduce tension and stress.
I have held licenses in both the state of AR (1993-2010) and the state of MO (2010 to present). (Kansas is currently working on a state license law.) I've been certified by the National Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 1993.
