Oncology massage intakes are more detailed, and are typically done over the phone a few days before the appointment in order to create a treatment plan. If you are scheduling a massage for relaxation or pain management, you can use the scheduling button here where you can select an appointment time, fill out an intake form, and pay before your appointment.
I am following guidance from The Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards in response to COVID-19, as well as staying informed in regard to NH State Guidelines as they evolve. I am fully vaccinated including booster and will be masked during all massages. While I recommend clients are masked when entering the office and face-up on the table, it is not a requirement at this time. You can view the FSMTB guidelines here:
I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2013. I went to New Hampshire Institute for Therapeutic Arts in Hudson, New Hampshire, and have advanced training in Oncology Massage Therapy with Tracy Walton. I am currently a graduate student at Plymouth State University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. My training and education has led me to evidence informed practice, which uses research to inform clinical practice. I am also the student representative for the New Hampshire Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors Association. I recently became a researcher for a diversity project by NH Charitable Foundation. The project focused on what barriers to opportunity exist for people in New Hampshire with dimensions of diversity. You can view the findings here.
I came to massage many years ago as a client, to manage my anxiety disorder. I became interested in being a massage therapist because of the significant effect it had in changing my relationship to anxiety. Massage, along with other forms of self-care, have allowed me to be the person I was meant to be. My further education has led me to a deeper, more integrated understanding of anxiety and pain management and how massage can help.
It is a profound honor and a privilege to serve people through massage. I believe that touch is a language of care and support that everyone needs. I welcome everyone to my table.
