About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I listen to clients needs and adjust my work to them. Many Therapists lose touch with the effectiveness of clear feedback from clients about how it is feeling in their body. Many great therapists find the balance between following their own intuition and also checking in with the client to see what they are experiencing and what that can add to addressing what presents itself. Empowered clients also take the tools from the session and are able to do techniques on themselves which keeps them in better shape between sessions.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Helping people feel better. Seeing results and being present for my clients. I love working with people, I love getting them reconnected with the strengths of their bodies and their resiliency. I love helping people integrate regular self care which helps them take the power of their body and energy back into their own hands. This is what I love to facilitate and I am honored to be a part of peoples process.

    Tiffany was great and very knowledgeable. I am undergoing chemotherapy and she knew how to accommodate and treat me without adversely affecting the chemo. The massage was very relaxing. I will be making another appointment.

    Tiffany was the first to respond to my request and was very accommodating to my time-frame. I was a bit concerned when she described her deep tissue technique but wanted to give her a try since she was so accommodating. Also this was for my wife not for myself. My wife was very very pleased with the massage(she can be picky). At some point I will give Tiffany a try and would recommend her services to others in a second.

    Tiffany's massage was very lovely. I too am a massage therapist and I have high expectations. To start I felt very at ease with Tiffany's open attitude. The massage was beautifully orchestrated with knowledge and care..

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am national board certified. I am certified internationally as a pediatric massage therapist. I have trained with John F Barnes in Myofascial Release. I have over 800hours of training currently. I love learning. I will continue to learn from other talented practitioners in this field and also by continuing education opportunities. I think this process is important through out our whole careers. I am up to date on many new developments in this field and look forward to future techniques and classes that help me have even more tools to utilize when working with someone on a one on one basis.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always loved Massage. I grew up around massage therapists and learned for many years by trading massages, getting bodywork and replicating the techniques that worked and helped. Neck, head, and shoulders are a specialty because that is the most common way to give and receive safe and effective massage to friends and family. I am amazed at the variety of techniques and tools there are in massage and bodywork to help people feel better and heal. I love this work and do it because it is a great complimentary medicine. It helps people reconnect to their own bodies and helps their own systems reset and work at optimum capacity. It is a therapy that compliments and works well in conjunction with tradition medicine and with other complimentary modalities.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Mostly a combination of stress relief/relaxation work, specific area bodywork to address chronic or temporary issues you are facing, and ideas and building on tools you can take with you to address your body between sessions.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask questions and be clear about what you want to achieve in each session! I tailor to your needs and build on the strengths I have to offer in each customized session.
