I can help!

Massage is not just for relaxation anymore!

Therapeutic Massage is the correction of injured, dysfunctional and misalinged muscles. Not every massage therapist has extensive knowledge of injury recovery and may make things worse. Always ask your therapist what their qualifications are first and what type of additional education/hands on they have received.

Continuing Education includes: Soft Tissue release of the neck, Release of Frozen Shoulder, Massage Cupping, Ethics and HIPPA compliant.


From Lucia M

I’ve been getting monthly massages for four years. I’ve had deep tissue massage from chain massage and various other modalities. They have all been great for removing knots and tightness. I’ve had three massages by Gretchen Gretchen provides so much more than your average massage, she is a healer. She has an uncanny ability to identify the sources of the knots and tightness. I have stenosis in my low back narrowing of the openings in my vertebrae that put pressure on the nerve. I also have chronic neck pain from arthritis. She is the first person to affect real relief in my symptoms, releasing muscles that aggravated my pain. I have noticed a significant shift in mobility and less pain in my hips/legs, her specialized training in neck massage has also eased my neck stiffness. This is a huge help in my goal is to maintain my strength and mobility as I move into my middle 60s. If you are looking for just a feel-good massage she can do that too but if you want lasting relief and healing go see Gretchen

Cupping Services

Fascial Cupping-Mini Facelift Do you want a tighter, pinker, fuller, younger, refreshed looking/feeling face? Cupping increases circulation, releases tightness, tones tissue, stimulates collagen and elastin, restores new skin tissue.

Review from Shelly P. Everything was great. Gretchen is very professional. I can see the difference in my face, it feels softer, my lines are disappeared. This is a great service. Thank you.

Cellulite Reduction Fascial Cupping Breaks up fat clusters in the mesh of fascia in upper legs, buttocks area and stomach, releases toxins, and adhesions to tighten, lift and tone trouble areas that Won’t go away. Also amazing reduction on stretch marks! Upper arms respond extremely well to reduce the saggy dreaded wings.

Sessions run between 30-60 minutes depending on how many areas you want done. Rose or Frankenscense oil is used as a gliding oil, both have great benefits on their own.

Results will vary depending on severity of issues And what your goals of treatment are.
