"I had the biggest knot in my back. It was bigger than anyone could imagine. It hurt to move. It hurt to breathe. I could not take a deep breath without feeling a sharp piercing pain in between my shoulder blades. Not being able to take a deep breath started to give me anxiety and I feared that a large dose of painkillers and a bottle of wine to wash them down would be the only thing tough enough to conquer this pain. I was wrong. Tami took on a feat that most would run from. I was cranky and miserable. Tami saved my spouse from a night of wining, bellyaching and ear screeching screams of agony in between the demands to cater to my every need because I could not move. She went to work on the knot and after the first massage I was feeling ten times better and my anxiety subsided because I could breathe again. The knot was large enough that it took a couple visits to free me of it completely; however, it was much more manageable. I was so surprised to find that a muscle in my buttocks area of all places was actually causing the pain in my back. Tami continues to amaze me with her talent. I see her as often as I can and the difference it has made in every sense of the word well-being is incredible. My body feels better, my mind feels better and I learn something new about my own body every time I visit her. I am weight training and my muscles sometimes hate me. She makes my muscles not so angry which allows me to train harder thus feeling a real sense of accomplishment. The clarity that a wonderful massage allows proves to be the most beneficial to me though. I often allow the stressors of life to get the better of me but with Tami and her magic hands along with her ability to make me see the transparency of all my problems... the answer to the problem is that there is no problem. I appreciate Tami and her skills. I am a client for life."

Why All the Hype About Water?

You hear it regularly (especially if you’re a client of mine) “are you drinking enough water?”.  Why are so many of us obsessed with adequate water intake? Because most people are chronically dehydrated. What does chronic dehydration look like? According to F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. (I love his name!!), it looks like asthma, allergies, insulin dependant […]

Do You Need Help Sleeping?

At least once a week and sometimes multiple times a week, I find myself discussing sleep, or lack thereof, with a client.  It seems we go through phases in our lives, as kids sleeping usually comes easy, teenagers can’t get enough, usually in our 20’s we do ok and then wham, we find ourselves staring […]
