I enjoy advocating for and educating clients about the natural pain relief attainable with massage therapy and therapeutic grade essential oils. My work is based on creating great treatments for my clients by using a vast array of therapies with the power of healing touch. I invest back into my business in many ways but one in particular is continuing education. I make it a point to go above and beyond the nation licensing requirements.
My thirst for knowledge about how the body and mind responds to massage therapy is something I can not deny. Continuing education plays a big role in my ability to continually provide effective treatments with cutting edge knowledge pertaining to your pain problems and how massage can help. Stress, headaches, low back or neck and shoulder pain can be persistent and down right P A I N F U L when not taken care of correctly.
It only takes ONE choice to start your path of pain relief in the right direction. Pain is real and so is pain relief.
Personally, I enjoy educating other holistic entrepreneurs how to grow successful business by offering private and group coaching through my company Relaxation Business Coaching.
I adore my two cats Willa and Scott, who you can see on Relaxation Works’s facebook page. I am a member of the Taunton Garden Club and an active member in my state chapter’s professional organization. I have a beautiful fiance whom I adore and we enjoy spending the summers on our boat.

My passion for holistic massage …
Through meditation, yoga, prayer, positive thinking and receiving body work regularly; I have been able to find that mind-body-spirit balance. I attended the elite Bancroft School of Massage Therapy in Worcester MA where I received a complete education in a two year program (822+ hours). My extensive training and continuing education has provided me the benefit of having a vast knowledge of many pathologies, muscular issues, autoimmune diseases and emotional/behavioral disorders. I participate in many charities and sporting events. Giving back and volunteering my time is a part of who I am. I realize that this life is not just about me; but all of us as a whole and the connections we make.
We are happy to announce our new staff members!

I am a very compassionate person who thrives on helping others. This led me to my decision to attend massage therapy school. I wanted to give people pain relief and bring them to a calm place where they could relax & become whole again. I enjoy fusing eastern & western techniques to create a very relaxing and effective massage. Clinically, I excel in deep tissue & relaxation massage, infant massage, and sports massage. I personally enjoy music, sports, poker, anything outdoors, movies and enjoying time with friends and family.
