Licensed Massage Therapist
Certified Thai Massage

When I founded AKV, it was my goal to empower people who had tried everything else but were still looking for relief.

My preferred way of working is to combine bodywork with stretching, yoga, energy, guided breathing, and/or counseling, as needed, to balance all the aspects of physical, mental, and emotional health and healing.

With my integrated approach, it is my goal is to help people keep doing the things they love doing most – without pain, fear, or stress.

Licensed Massage Therapist
Certified Oncology Massage Therapist
Cupping Practitioner

My career as a massage therapist has been fueled by my passion for healing and the desire to help others.

My goal is to thoughtfully tailor each massage session to each client, personalizing the experience to fit your specific needs. I utilize many techniques & modalities including myofascial release, trigger point therapy, Swedish, cupping/gliding cupping, deep tissue, and stretching to promote pain- and tension-relief and deep relaxation.

Whether you are seeking to heal an injury, increase flexibility or release tension and stress (or a combination of all three) I will create the perfect treatment program for you.


Licensed Massage Therapist
Thai/Reiki Practitioner
CBD Educator

My massage style can be described as therapeutic and integrative and may include guided breath or visualizations to calm mental stress which aids in the release of physical tension.

I like to offer CBD therapy as an add-on to my integrative sessions. I am passionate about education for conscious consumers who understand the physiology, variety of products, usage, and dosage of CBD for balanced wellness.

Beginning in 2010, I studied Therapeutic Massage at Spa Tech in Massachusetts and then continued onto study myofascial release, Thai Massage, Yoga, Jin Shin Jyutsu and Reiki.
