I graduated from Ashmead College in 2005 with honors. An 805 hour accredited program that included Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Pathology, Swedish, Sports, Trigger Point & Deep Tissue. I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Washington. I continue to expand my knowledge, experience and expertise in bodywork and I attend workshops and classes as often as possible to enhance my skills to better serve my clients.
I started my first massage therapist job at Harmony Massage. After learning much about massage therapy, I decided to move on to Edmonds Massage Therapy, which later became Accolades Massage Therapy. Then in 2008 my dream became a reality as I went into business with a co-worker and we opened up Crescent Moon Massage Therapy. In 2010 we both decided to go our separate ways and open up our own businesses solo. I can think of nothing more I'd rather be doing for a career than massage therapy.
Prior to becoming a therapist I worked for the Shoreline School District as a para-educator for 9 years. It was during this time when a little girl I worked with had cerebral palsy and I would accompany her to her therapy sessions. She would receive massage on her atrophied muscles and it really seemed to make her feel better. This was the exact moment I knew I wanted to be able to see that look in someone's eyes after I made them feel better. Just knowing I could help someone in pain was enough motivation for me to work hard and become a therapist.
In my massage sessions with you I find out what you specifically want to have the most work on and I tailor your massage to your specific needs and wants. During your massage, I let you go into your "zone out" mode and only talk to you if you engage me first. Intuitively, I can feel your muscles and sink to the level of depth they allow. This is very important for you to know if you are scheduling a deep tissue massage as deep tissue does not mean deep pressure. I do, however, expect you to speak up if you ever need deeper or lighter pressure. It is much more satisfying and a good experience for you if you communicate with me anything you don't like or want more of during the massage. Also, you are always welcome to request a different music station if you don't feel like listening to relaxation-type massage music. Your massage session is all about you!
And lastly, but by far not the least, sometimes you will meet Lily when you come in for your massage. Lily is a BIG Great Dane with a heart of gold and she loves everyone. She is not in the room when you get your massage and she's a very quiet girl. However, she is kinda like the "receptionist" in that she greets you at the door. She will never jump on you. She will only lean on you. And you will fall madly in love with her! I look forward to working with you.
NOTE: Lily now stays at home because of her disability, which she receives massage for and it helps tremendously! However, she's still my "wing man".... :) AND, once in awhile, when some of my long time clients really miss her, I bring her in to work for the day!
I now have another "wing man" that comes to the office with me. His name is Lito and he is a Great Dane-Boxer mix that sleeps all day in my waiting room. He is very kind, quiet and loving. :) If this is a problem for you, please let me know as I can refer you out to a therapist that does not bring a dog to the office. :)

It is with great sadness that Lily is no longer with me. She crossed the rainbow bridge on December 1, 2014. She is missed greatly. A one of a kind angel dog.
