Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. My most common job is a deep tissue therapeutic massage, usually 60-90 minutes.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. I would come on in for our intro massage. 50 minutes for $45. Can't beat the price, even if you have to drive a little. The only way to determine if my massage will work for you is to try it. Chronic issues may require multiple sessions.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. I wish I knew that massage helps with all sorts of pain and that I don't have to be taking (as much) pain medication, muscle relaxers and cortisone shots. I wish I knew that pregnancy massage would help a mother at any stage. I wish I knew that the postural patterns I adopt have an effect on my own comfort in my body. I wish I knew massage can actually be affordable and works really well when utilized on a regular basis.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. When were you licensed? What are your specialities? How many massages do you do per week?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Our experts are offering specialized massage such as neuro-muscular therapy (and other deep tissue techniques), sports massage, anti-aging facials, herbal detox compress, hot stones, foot treatments, Reiki, myofascial release, and more. Onsite menu has separate price structure and minimum requirements. Inquire about details.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. We love to help people out of pain and reduce their stress. We want to see as many people living comfortably in their body as we can help. Our massage and spa services as well as our infrared sauna offer an appealing lifestyle choice for many South Jersey locals. We hope you join them!
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. When asked how long I've been doing massage, I want to say, all my life! But my training started in 1999. Since then I've been passionately working hard, in the day spa environment as well as with chiropractors. I opened my own spot locally in 2008 and expanded in 2010 into my current location. I proudly hire the best in the field to help satisfy the needs of this busy community on a daily basis.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. I love the fact that locals refer us to family and friends. There's no bigger compliment than a referral. My favorite type of referral is someone in pain who's open to trying a non-medial approach. I love it when people tell me they move better and feel better than they have for a long time. I've had several people tell me they don't have headaches any more, they stopped using medicine for pain (or other approaches), they sleep better, and all! What is really fun, though are spa parties where everyone seems to have a great time!
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. My customers know that I can find their pain and help them get into a more comfortable place. Although the session itself may have some uncomfortable moments they all say it's worth it in the end. Repeat sessions help someone come closer to maintaining a pain-free state between appointments.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I have always been drawn to sore muscles. It's like my fingers are pain magnets. I found myself rubbing shoulders and necks at family parties and bar-be-ques. I decided at the age of 32 to go to massage school with my husband, and I've never looked back! I arrived in Woodstown in 2008 and have been immersed in the local scene ever since.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. In just 3 sessions I have recently helped a gentleman recover use of his shoulder which he couldn't lift over his head for about 3-4 months. He's a pipe fitter.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. We continually renew licensure which requires continuing education in the massage industry and in ethics.
Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?
A. I see a real trend towards corporate massage. It helps increase productivity and morale of the whole team when we can come in for 10 minute sessions on a monthly or quarterly basis.
Q. Describe your most recent project, what it involved, how much it cost, and how long it took.
A. I've got massages daily. I recently had a speaking engagement on aromatherapy and reflexology at a corporate location.
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. all massages are taxed at 7% except by prescription

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?
A. Do it if you have a special "touch" or if you really like helping people. Not necessarily for those who want an easy path to riches.
Q. What is your greatest strength?
A. My fingers have a gift of finding where someone's discomfort stems from.
