Before moving to the Atlanta area I was a resident of Boston, MA for seven years. I received my BA degree in Secondary Education from Boston College, where I was able to teach in Austrailia and on an Apache Reservation. After college I was a teacher for two years, but was continuously drawn to Massage Therapy and continued my education at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy (which is the state where my wonderful family resides). At CCMT I learned many modalities including Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports, Pregnancy, and Acupressure. I also tutored Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology after graduating.
Education is a big part of my life and I am constantly seeking opportunities to stay fresh in my profession. Most recently I have complimented my massage education by completing courses such as Myofascial Release, Working with Clients with Cancer, Parkinson's Disease and Massage, and Hot Stone Massage. I also have a great love for working with pregnant women and women trying to conceive. I am certified by Nurturing the Mother Seminars which specialize in Fertility Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Postpartum Massage, and Infant Massage.
The Art of Touch opened its doors on July 4th 2007. Dreams do come true and my dream of helping others ease their pain through massage becomes a reality every day. Our therapists are the best I have ever met and they amaze me with their knowledge and professionalism. When we opened our doors we made a promise to be involved with the community. Some of our community events include a monthly book club, Nurturing the Pregnant Couple Seminars, and art shows where we support local artists. I have been able to also join my passion for exercise and massage by volunteering at sporting events such as the ING Marathon, AIDS Walk, and MS Bike-a-thon.
My goal is to give you all your body deserves through massage and education. Join us in our beautiful space and see what others have found in our serene escape.
