Hi! My name is Nancy.
I came to massage therapy through my love of yoga. I began practicing yoga in 2004 as a means to heal stress-related neck and upper back pain, and I am now pain-free.
I became a yoga teacher in 2009, and through my teaching, I found that I was drawn to the therapeutic aspect of yoga more so than the "workout" aspect. From there, the shift for me to study massage and bodywork was quite natural, and I enrolled in a 620-hour program at the Institute for Therapeutic Massage in Morristown, NJ in 2010, focusing primarily on Swedish and medical massage.
I was certified by the State of New Jersey in 2011. Since becoming certified, I have worked in a spa, in a holistic center and for chiropractors. My massage style is tailored to each client’s needs. Among the modalities I use are Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, foot reflexology and Reiki energy healing.
Why I do what I do (and why I love it)
I believe very strongly in helping others to achieve and maintain overall wellness through holistic means. As one of my teachers said, pain-free living is our birthright. There is no greater gift that I can give people than to help free them from pain! When we are pain-free in our physical bodies, the mind and spirit will most certainly follow this path.
And lastly, I’m a lifelong music lover, so working with Dr. Dot’s team is the perfect gig for me!
