My Mission For Our Company

Health is wealth, we can have everything in the world, but if we don’t have our health, what are we? I entered the massage field after losing my mom to cancer, I saw firsthand how healthy touch; massage, reflexology, and energy work helped with her pain, and brought her relief. After she passed, I knew I wanted to help people the question was: how? After some soul searching, I entered massage school in 2009 and never looked back! I started my career working with cancer patients, and stroke victims, over the years I have niched more into sports/rehab and functional movement with an emphasis on total body health and well-being.

I have furthered my education and have B.S. degrees in kinesiology, exercise science, nutrition, and psychology – did I mention I’m into wellness?

I have built this business on the foundational desire to help people. Help people; heal, recover, and renew themselves through safe, effective, healing touch. Our time in these bodies is finite a precious resource that must be cherished, loved, and taken care of – caring for oneself and one’s health is the most important, honorable, thing we can do. Self-care isn’t selfish, it is the purest form of selflessness – if we don’t care for ourselves, who will? Or who will care for the ones we love when we can’t? My mission is to reduce your aches and pains, and return you to a state of balance, keeping your body healthy, vibrant, and functioning longer. We want to keep you…YOU, because you are worth it!

I have built my team on my foundational mission and beliefs, everyone here holds true the same ethics and values as I, simply put they wouldn’t be here if they didn’t. Meaning – you are in good hands with us.

At Elevation Massage and Spa our sessions are more than just a massage or facial, they are a gateway to health and vitality. We truly believe in elevating wellness and consciousness through healing touch – Our mission is to keep you healthy, moving, and living a pain free life! Whether you have excessive tension from that office job, are a professional or competitive athlete, have a passion for fitness, or are just getting back into the swing of things, we have got you covered! Each session is tailored to your specific needs from relaxation to rehab, self-care is our game, because you are worth it!
