Candy has been practicing massage therapy for over 15 years, and has since added Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Crystal Healer, Aromatherapy Wellness Advocate and Cranio-Sacral Therapy to her list of healing services. She is always honing her skills and adding modalities to create a well-rounded healing approach. Her passion for healing on all levels began as a teen when she had an intuitive “knowing” that everything we take in (food, beliefs, toxins, verbal/visual/audible suggestion, etc.) affects our overall wellness and our ability to lead a healthy, successful and fulfilled life. Moreover she knew that all ailments can be traced back to emotions that are stored in our bodies which, if not processed and released through massage and self-care, can lead to many of our life's problems. Her search to be her best self has led her to research the benefits of proper nutrition, herbology, Ayurvedic medicine, aromatherapy, sound healing, breathwork, visualization techniques and meditation. She has dedicated her life to helping others live a life of wellness, joy, inspiration, abundance and total fulfillment! It's what makes her soul sing ... let's find your song!

I have been a massage therapist since 2005 and developed my practice with an emphasis on Myofascial Release (MFR). Using the John Barnes Approach to MFR my work is a very intuitive touch that allows me to go deep into the body without causing unnecessary pain or risk of injury. "Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle pressure into Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion." - John Barnes . This type of work is great for relieving not only chronic issues but for consistent maintenance as well. New stuff comes up every day as we live and move in our bodies. It is important to take care of ourselves often in every way that we can. Learning is a helpful tool for us to keep moving forward. As I learn to enhance my healing touch I love to educate my clients with useful tips and guidance to encourage and support their own personal healing and maintenance. MFR is something we can all do for ourselves everyday. I would appreciate the opportunity to help you reach your healing goals.
