Healing Body Massage & Lympatic Therapy Chicago

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me!


In brief, I sincerely love helping people. It gives me great delight to help others particularly rediscover freedom in their bodies by feeling tension free and fantastic and in turn have that freedom enhance every other area of their lives.

I discovered massage via a very blessed 25 year career as a professional dancer. It’s what actually brought me to the windy city as I was fortunate to be in the original Chicago cast of WICKED.

8 shows a week dancing in OZ, on Broadway, National Tours and many other high kicking, physically demanding shows (I survived CATS- twice!).  I became highly attuned to every nuance and irksome annoyance my body communicated to me.  It is this intuition I bring to every client/patient.   My body was literally my livelihood and it has become my greatest teacher leading the way to what I now know.  My approach is therapeutic, my technique full of variations and my style healing and compassionate.  Being a natural born seeker, and proverbial student, I am always on the path of continued learning- ask my friends!  I’ve been in school since….um….ever.   Whether it’s a new Thai technique, lymphedema seminar or college Biology class, I take pride in investing in education which ultimately and hopefully shall benefit you!
