A style of massage which focuses on getting results vs just relaxing.
This term indicates that the purpose of the massage is to achieve a structural change or therapeutic benefit in the body.
Since every massage is customized according to my client’s specific goals and preferences, which techniques are actually used during a session can vary greatly from client to client—even from session to session.

About Your Therapist
Hi! I'm Marilyn! I was born and raised in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs, CO. Long before massage therapy came into my life, I attended art school-earning a bachelors degree in photography and painting. I spent nearly a decade in Brooklyn where I started a small book-binding studio and met my husband. We spent a little time in Philadelphia, and started a family in Montclair, NJ before settling in Belmont, NC to be closer to all of the grandparents.
I shifted gears to massage therapy in 2015 after sitting sideline to my husband's long recovery from a rock climbing accident. It was that experience (and an amazing massage therapist) that encouraged me to persue a career in a field that physically helps people through the tough stuff life has to offer.
I enrolled into a program that is based in neuromuscular therapy and continued to build on that foundation with additional stretch techniques, orthopedic techniques, and a certification in medical massage. I have been told that I have an intuitive approach to massage that helps people relax but also produces long-lasting relief.
I look forward to working with you!
