Welcome to Essence of Health where we take self-care seriously.

Are you tired of feeling exhausted and stressed out? Got that nagging pain?

When was the last time you felt really good? The last time you didn't want to rush to your next vacation or spa day? How can you create the feelings you have after your massage or vacation on any given day?

How can we create a life where you have more of those moments even in the day to day grind? Creating a set self care system can help you find gratitude and peace amongst the chaos that is life. Work with us to create a life you don't need to take a vacation from but one that helps you live and love on those that mean the most to you.

Hear me when I say:  Doing it all is not a badge of honor.

"Owning our worthiness is the act of acknowledging that we are sacred.”

  • Massage and Body Work

    Receiving massage therapy or body work can relax us, increase healthy sleeping patterns, reduce muscle tension and pain while also helping us feel a general feeling of well being. Physical and emotional well being are connected. Having pain can impact our mental health just like having too much stress impacts our physical health. Scheduling massage sessions to reduce your pain and tension ahead of serious injury can help you live and feel your best.

    Aromatherapy and Herbs

    Using aromatherapy and herbs can help us find our balance as well as create a warm, loving environment that is calm and supportive.

    Aromatherapy has a way of helping us feel relaxed as well as reducing our physical tension that is often associated with stressful times.

    These little beauties are a perfect addition to your massage session or take a blend home to use between sessions to help carry that calm, grounded and relaxed feeling with you anytime.

    Committing to a time to write our thoughts down gets our ideas out of our heads and can help us focus on what we really love and even what goals we want to achieve. Whether you need to journal past trauma or injury, write about things you're grateful for or even just log your dreams and ideas, journaling can help you focus and find gratitude.

    Self Care strategies like journaling, meditation, and relaxation practices get you feeling your best are far more than just bubble baths and even massage sessions. You need to care and love your self again, filling your well to be able to give to others.

    Movement and Meditation

    Quieting our minds and getting in some consistent movement can help us really listen to what we are being called to do, work out problems we are stressed over and connects our body and mind. The happy endorphin release from the exercise helps our body relax and feel less stressed.

    Allowing time for our minds to clear, breath to fill our body and calm to wash over us gives us the opportunity to really tune in and  feel in to see what our areas of physical discomfort might be telling us.

    Some of us meditate while walking, jogging or sitting quietly in a yoga pose. Any and all of these practices are correct as long as they work for you. As with any self care consistency is key.

A bit about me

I have been a licensed Massage Therapist since 2004 after working in medical facilities providing patient care since 1995. I have seen how stress and pain can impact the body and mind.

I am also a wife, mother and business owner so I get it! Stress is everywhere but we can use bite sized tools to reduce the effects and live our lives on our terms feeling our best and that's the magic of it. Giving our very best to those we love.

Over my career as a Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, and Aromatherapist I have utilized many tools in my practice and life. Some will stick and some won't but I now share all of those with my clients so they can get out there and enjoy all life has to offer. It's your time and you're ready for this step!
