Enjoy Your Full Massage Time

Raise your hand if you’ve ever gone to a 60-minute massage only to end up with about 42 minutes of actual massage. Sound familiar? And then did you feel rushed out the door as soon as it ended?


One of the most significant things you’ll notice at your appointment is that the time you book is truly your massage time. Our intake chat and follow-up talk will not cut into your wellness time so that you can fully enjoy your experience. 


In fact, our time to talk is a critical part of your healing journey. It gives me vital information about how I can best support you. And it allows you time to ask questions and process the treatment. So when you book an hour massage with me, you receive 70-80 minutes of wellness. I will not hurry you through the process. Your body deserves better than that.

Personalized Care for Your Needs

Massage should never be one-size-fits-all. Our bodies are too amazing and intricate to fit into a box. At Sherwood Massage, your needs are front and center, as I work to create an integrative plan that is right for you.


I do not see massage therapy as a bandaid that provides temporary comfort. Instead, I want to get at the root of the problem to help your body do its own healing for long-term wellness and function. 


The pain and limitations you have in your body do not have to be your whole story. They are part of what you experience, but they don’t have the power to make you hopeless. I am here to help your body recover and maintain its wellness. We work to formulate a treatment plan that may include:

Deep Tissue Massage   |   Myofascial Release   |   Trigger Point Therapy   |   Assisted Stretching   |   Cupping   |   Gua Sha (Muscle Scraping)

Your Care Doesn’t End in the Office

I believe strongly in education and empowerment for each person, so I offer practical self-care tips for every client. We may discuss things such as posture, stretching, exercises, workout adjustments, and foam rolling. All of these pieces will further maintain your body’s wellness once you leave your appointment. This education is critical to supporting the successful long-term results you can see from your massage treatment.

I also offer virtual wellness sessions for a deeper view into targeted, personalized self-care. Whether you work with me in person or remotely, you can expect the same level of support, education, tangible self-care tools, and frequent follow-ups to keep you on the right track.

A Unique Background Gives You a Range of Options

As a lifelong athlete, avid runner, and a certified running coach, I understand the pain and frustration that comes with running or other sports injuries. You lose confidence in your body's ability to do what you ask of it, and you may be worried about hitting your goals. 


Being forced to modify your training due to injury is frustrating. You want to feel well and strong again, and you need to regain your confidence. Together, we can get you back on track.


With a holistic approach to health, wellness, and pain management, I have many massage options available for you. Your body’s needs will dictate the right path. Whether you need support for an injury or ongoing help with chronic pain, we can work to find the right treatment plan.

How are you feeling? Are you ready to move forward? Reach out today, and let’s talk.
