I’ve graduated from Baltimore School of massage in July of 2005, and I’m a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). I have four and a half years experience working for one of York’s Premier Therapeutic Massage practices that always pushed me to do my very best. I always believed I should go for my dream and start my own massage practice one day.
On May 1, 2010 I bought Kneads Therapeutic Massage from Jennifer Lloyd and made it my own and so became Relaxing Note LLC Therapeutic Massage on 29 South Main Street in Red Lion. My Job is my passion, art and I love it. I am living the life I imagined, helping people one day at a time.
I love helping people before and after surgeries or help prevent surgery all together. Helping someone relax or easing their pain is so rewarding. I believe if you customize the massage to each client they will get the best massage possible and healing will happen.
My areas of study:
Swedish Massage • Deep Tissue Massage • Myofascial Release • Pregnancy Massage • Hot Stone Massage or Hot Flex Seed Packs • Reiki Massage
My specialties include:
Lower Back Pain • Neck Pain • Shoulder/Rotator Cuff Pain • Sinus and T.M.J Pain
I was highly influenced by a close friend to look into Massage Therapy and once I had a professional massage, I was hooked. I started school shortly after my second daughter was born. I graduated from The Baltimore School of Massage in May 2006. Although I have only been able to practice Massage Therapy part-time, I thoroughly enjoy it. I often describe a session as “it’s relaxing for me as well as the client”!
I am a member of ABMP – Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals.
My areas of study and services are:
Swedish Massage • Deep Tissue • Seated Massage
I have been fascinated by massage therapy for many years. Being able to have a literal “hands on” approach to helping people is an amazing and enriching experience. After researching different schools, I enrolled in the massage therapy course at the York campus for Harrisburg Area Community College. I graduated in December of 2016 and became a member of AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association).
My areas of study are:

Dealing with persistent lower back pain, PTSD, skin rashes, digestive disorders, sinusitis, and depression, she has transformed herself from a very challenged existence to a daily reality of health and peace of mind. The list of modalities begin from being a teacher of, “A Course in Miracles”, Ho’oponopono, Law of Attraction, a Practitioner of Matrix Energetics, Faster-EFT (tapping), Quantum Healing Hypnosis and “Quantum Healing” Practitioner.

I have 26 years of experience in the Holistic Health field and am a 1991 graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage. After graduating, I kept my own massage therapy business for 4 years in York, until I decided to further my studies at the Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, Va. and graduated in 1996. After becoming licensed in Virginia and board certified by the NCTMB, I became an Assistant Instructor, for 2 years, in the many modalities offered at the Cayce/Reilly School, including the Basic Cayce/Reilly Massage Routine, Hydrotherapy, Clinical Massage (Myofascial & NeuroMuscular), Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Sports Massage, Intermediate Massage, Swedish, Reflexology, Therapeutic Touch, and Integrative Therapies and then became an Instructor of the Basic Cayce/Reilly routine, home remedies and diet for 3 years.
I became interested in nutrition ten years ago when my daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at the age of 10 years old. When medications failed, and a diet reversed all her symptoms, I became passionate about nutrition and helping others on their journey to health through nutritional support. I wanted to learn more, and enrolled in the Nutritional Therapy Association’s practitioner training program, which is based upon anatomy and physiology.
Nutritional Therapy Practitioners are unique from other nutritionists and dieticians, in that we are trained in various clinical tools, including a functional hands-on assessment and lingual-neuro testing, which is a bio-feedback tool used to determine which supplements or foods your body responds to. The goal of nutritional therapy is to nourish your body with the nutrients it needs to permit self healing and rebalancing. I work with each client to determine underlying areas of dysfunction, and root causes that contribute to chronic health conditions. I work with individual clients, and teach group nutrition and wellness classes, including the 5-week RESTART® class, and the 6-week Feed Your Fertile Body™ program. I joined the Relaxing Note Therapeutic Massage and Wellness Center in January, 2016 when I started my nutrition practice, NutriViable LLC.
